Swatch and Review: NYC New York Color Crystal Couture Collection

Hey, everyone! Up on the blog today is a new, limited edition collection from NYC New York Color called Crystal Couture. All Crystal Couture shades are jam-packed with glitter particles for some mega sparkle.

Today, I'm going to be showing you three shades, with a bonus swatch:

The first shade I have for you is called Blue Majesty, a vibrant blue with matching microglitter. This applies like a jelly polish, but the above is with two coats. You can see a little visible nail line in the photo, but it wasn't visible in person.

The only issue I had with this shade is that it's a heck of a stainer on the nails, not so much my skin. So I'd suggest doubling up on the base coat.

Next is Fashion Queen, a burnt orange shimmer with slightly larger particles of gold microglitter. This definitely reminded me of a pile of leaves in the fall! The above is with three coats.


And here is Ruby Queen, a gorgeous and majestic-looking red microglitter polish. This also applies like a jelly, so I used three coats. And oh my God, is this gorgeous or WHAT??!?!

And now for the bonus...

After a pretty big nail art fail, I noticed that Blue Majesty layered over Ruby Queen quite nicely to make a dark and ruddy purple base with a ton of bright blue sparkle. I REALLY liked this layering combination a lot!

Overall, I loved this collection. It has a lovely holiday feel to it with all the glitter and rich color, but also feels a lot like fall.

The NYC New York Color Crystal Couture Collection (Say that three times fast!) is currently available at your local drug store for $1.99. What a bargain right?

I think my favorite shade is Ruby Queen. What's yours?!?
