NYC Valentines Nails: Oh Soho Sweet

NYC-NewYorkColor-Valentines-Nails-Long-Time-Lavender-Oh-Soho-Sweet-Bubblegum-Pink

The arrival of this fresh and pretty NYC Valentines nail trio brightened up my week and brought a welcome respite from the darker hues I’ve been sporting lately.  From left to right, the colours are:

  • Long Time Lavender - a shimmery pink toned lilac
  • Oh Soho Sweet - a ballet pump toned peachy nude crème
  • Bubblegum Pink - an almost neon coral crème

I know I’ll love Bubblegum Pink come Spring, but for now, Oh Soho Sweet is my pick of the bunch. Clean, fresh and pretty, it reminds me of pricier lacquers by OPI and Essie - at a fraction of the cost.  Wearable with a semi-sheer finish (which unusually for me, I quite like) in 2 coats, I applied 4 for the above pic. 

NYC nail polishes almost always impress me with a quality comparable to their more expensive sisters.  They apply easily with a large brush and have a super glossy finish.

New York Color Nails, £2.49 each at Superdrug, though I’ve just spotted two of these shades for 50p each at Fragrance Direct! 

Pssst, while you’re there, you might like to check out some frankly ridiculous reductions on Becca make-up, brushes & tools, which I may have already hauled this week! Some of the items I bought are already gone, so don’t hang about - find them here.
