Cool Toned Dots with NYC City Samba Shades

(**Press Samples**)
 When in doubt... Or just plain lazy.. DOTS!!!! This simple mani brought to you by shades from the New York Color City Samba Collection ;D. 
 I started with bases of NYC Ocean Blue and Palm Tree. Both of these shades have a great formula. They both felt a bit crelly to me, which I loved. I used Two coats of both colors. For my dots I used NYC Amazon Green. This shade is an odd and dated mint FROST.. A Mint frost... Anyways.. I decided to "make it work" by using it to create little pearly dots over my vibrant base colors. I think this is the only way I could ever enjoy such an odd color. 
 As for my base colors Ocean Blue and Palm Tree... They are actually quite wonderful! The formulas are really easy to work with, and I had no issues with staining. I finished off my nails with a top coat of Seche Vite. 

I am so ready for the weekend :D. Also, don't forget that I am taking requests for tutorials! So, don't be afraid to throw suggestions out there!! Happy Weekend!

Hot Little New York Color Clouds

(**Press Samples**)
 ... is my apartment a TARDIS? 

 Today I am sharing some hot little clouds because I need something bright, shiny and cheery to combat this dark and gloomy day in "Sunny" 'ol Fl. For this mani I got to play with a brand I had never tried before, New York Color. IDK why I'd never tried them.... But these were AWESOME! 
 I had been wanting to rock a cloud mani for some time now. I just love how cute these always turn out. Anyhow, I saw these three shades together and I just knew they would be my trio for my hot little clouds. These three shades come from the NYC In a NY Minute City Samba collection for Summer 2014. 
 I started with a base of NYC Copacabana, which is an amazing shade of bright, true primary yellow creamy shimmer. This shade reminds me, a lot, of Catrice's Birdie Reloaded; which is supposed to be a dupe of Chanel Mimosa (but, with a significantly better formula). By simple powers of deduction, one could then say that NYC Copacabana is a possible dupe for Chanel Mimosa. As for the formula on Copacabana, it is PERFECT. I only needed two effortless coats (insanely fast dry time). 
 For the middle cloud I used NYC Sweet Melon. This shade is an adorable shimmering true melon shade. There is no better way to describe this color that "melon". For the top cloud I used NYC Tropicoral. This pretty is a super vibrant and saturated shade of vivid, orange leaning, coral creme. I finished my clouds off with a good coat of Seche Vite to make them really shiny and smooth. 
 I feel like I have to comment on the amazing formula on all three of these colors. They were so easy to work with. These suckers retail for $1.99, but apply like a much more expensive polish. Tropicoral is especially amazing. The formula is really shiny and self-leveling. I really enjoyed this shade. These three shades also do live up to the "In a minute" claim. They dried really quickly which made for even easier clouds. 

 If you guys have any suggestions for other NYC In a NY Minute shades I should check out, definitely let me know! Thanks for coming by! 

PS- I am taking requests for nail art tutorials!! What do you guys wanna see? Let me know in the comments!
