NYC Big City Sparkle and Matte Me Crazy Review and Swatches

I’ll admit, the whole “matte polish” look took me a bit to get use to, but after a few swatches I really started to love matte nails! Then I started to see matte GLITTER polishes online and fell HARD for them!

Today I have a gorgeous glitter matte nail look to show you!

I was sent NYC Big City Sparkle Top Coat and NYC Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat to review, and I am SO glad they considered me for it!

I started off  with NYC Black Lace Cream nail polish and layered Big City Sparkle Top Coat over it.  Look how pretty!

Big City Sparkle is a gorgeous glitter topcoat with small pink, blue and silver .  The glitter isn’t bumpy or gritty feeling at all and is beautiful layered over black.  Big City Sparkles dried in about a minute.  Absolutely gorgeous!

Of course I couldn’t stop there.  So I added Matte me Crazy Top Coat!

I added one coat of Matte me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat and just stared at my nails for a bit! I love how the glitter stands out even more!  Matte me Crazy dried in 2 minutes and I think it really made this manicure come to life!

Both of these top coats will get plenty of use in my collection, both together and separately!

NYC Nail Polish and Top Coats can be found online at or anywhere NYC is sold such as Target and Walmart.

NYC Big City Sparkle and NYC Matte Me Crazy Top Coats both retail for $1.99 and each bottle contains .33 Fl Oz

The black with Big City Sparkle over it looks a lot like The Black Knight but a WHOLE lot cheaper!

omg :) i found this matte top coat and i was so happy! i also saw the glitter polish, but i didn’t buy it because i have a similar polish from sally hansen, Rockstar Pink.
Would you happen to know if the NYC Big City Sparkle is better than Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Rockstar Pink?
