NYC In A Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in 208 Pier 17: Review + Swatches

I don't know about you guys but I've always found blue nail polish to be really pretty. Especially when the shade is close to Saphirre Blue. It could be because I'm an E.L.F. (Ever Lasting Friends-- Super Junior's fanbase) and that saphirre blue is their official color but I feel so pretty whenver I'm wearing my nails blue. It not only looks so royal, it makes my hands look brighter and nicer too!

Right before 2013 ended, I bought some nail polishes off of e-bay to bring for my trip to Japan and I got this NYC nail polish. It's from jcam168. And just for the record, this is not sponsored. Here are some swatches:
 I even brought this at the salon so they could use this particular shade.
 DKFC2 nails.
I am so prepared to see Super Junior. :)

I personally have no complaints with the color but the shade could be more opaque. I mean, it looks opaque enough right now but that's only because I used three coats! For its price, however, I cannot complain. I didn't actually time the drying time for this one but I guess for layering three coats of nail polish, it did seem like it dried fast enough for me not to get bored. As for the staying power, I'd have to say it's so-so. You definitely need to put on some good top coat if you want this color to stay for long. It was already starting to chip on me on the second day. It's not as bad as some of my local nail polishes (Caronia, Bobbie) but I kind of expected more from it. But just the same, for its price, I really cannot complain. I mean, it IS my favorite nail polish of the moment so I guess that statement just sums up this post.

with love, Anna Luisa
