NYC Lexington Yellow

Hello my lovelies! It's Friday! And the weekend means we can wear whatever we want on our nails. Since it's still summer and in fact the last day of August, I think yellow is a great choice. I'm very excited today because on Sunday I will be starting a nail art challenge along with a few lovely nail bloggers. There's also Polish Days  coming up on Tuesday and let's not forget about Monday Blues. So a lot of fun stuff will be coming your way in September. Stay tuned! But in the meantime let's see what today's nails are about.

New York Color is a brand that's quite new to me. I only have one other polish from them in my collection. I picked this up while I was in London because I just couldn't say no. The color just jumped at me from the display. Plus it was only 2 ₤. The range is called In a New York Color Minute and they are supposed to dry in less than 60 seconds.

Lexington Yellow is the most vivid and intense yellow creme I have. Well I guess that's easy because I don't have many yellows in my collection. It has the color of egg yolk and it looks even more yellow than my pictures show it (if you can imagine that). Here's the most accurate shot I have.

Like with all yellows, the formula is a little tricky. It's very creamy when you apply it and the medium flat brush makes it slide onto the nail. However the result is nothing but streaky. I did 3 coats and it still showed streaks. I put on top coat and it still showed them. I guess you have to accept that when you go for yellow on your nails. I didn't get to test the drying time because of the Seche Vite I immediately applied to level it out.

Bottom line, even though the formula is not that great, I still like this polish. I might not reach very often for colors like this, but it's still nice to have a few in my collection. They are great for summer and actually for any season if you need a pick-me-up.
