Alphabet Challenge: G is for Golden Glam by NYC - Swatches and Review

The lovely Gosia from Life In Color started a nail challenge that I am so exited to join! Check out her post HERE for all the details and rules, but in a nutshell, we will be posting our polishes in alphabetical order by color name. This week we are featuring polishes starting with the letters E, F, G and H.
Today I am wearing NYC In a New York Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in Golden Glam.  Golden Glam is part of the Limited Edition Summer in the City Collection which is available in Rite Aid now.  The collection consists of 2 polishes, 3 sparkle eye dusts, 3 liquid lip shines, 2 bronzers and a highlighter.  I picked up both polishes, but I am thinking about trying one of the bronzers, too. But, I digress :)
Golden Glam is a beautiful peachy, bronze with gold flecks... in some light.  In others, it looks more like a bronze orange.  I think it is a great transition color from Summer into Fall.
I used 3 coats of Golden Glam and 1 coat of Out the Door Top Coat. The first coat was streaky and the second coat dragged because I didn't let the first coat dry first.  I gave the 2 coats a decent amount of time to dry before adding the third and it was smooth and opaque.  I suppose 2 perfect coats might be sufficient, but I'm far from perfect :)  It is a 3 coater for me and I'm okay with that.  The formula is pretty thin so three coats doesn't look too thick, which I can't stand!


Have you tried any NYC polishes?
What do you think of this Limited Edition shade?

  2. Pretty! The only place that I know of that sells NYC is Target and they don't have any LEs.

  3. Never tried NYC polishes, but they don't sound too appealing based on your bad experience with application. The color is gorgeous though!!

  7. For their price, I love NYC polish. They have some nice colors, but I think the formula is always a little on the thin side. I usually use a good base color and use these as a top coat. Really like this color and hope I can find it some time. It's pretty and would be a great Spring, Summer or Autumn color! Looks really nice on you! :)
