I have the nail polish portion of the NYC Samba Collection to show you tonight! I will have the cosmetic portion to show you in a couple days. This is a Limited Edition Summer collection that is available in most drug stores, I know I’ve spotted it in Rite Aid several times!
Jacaranda Flower is a gorgeous cool toned purple creme. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Palm On The Beach
Palm On The Beach is a muted kelly green creme. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Amazon Green is my favorite of the collection. This is a frosty mint creme. Brush strokes are visible in this polish, so you do need to get past that, but the color itself is really nice. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Sweet Melon is an deeper peach toned creme with a lot of orange mixed in. There is actually a subtle shimmer within this shade that was hard to capture. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Copabanana is a bright yellow creme with golden shimmer within it. I used 3 thin coats for these photos, but 2 would have worked fine. It was more of a carbon based unit issue that caused me to need 3 coats.
Tropicoral is a gorgeous coral cream that leans more pink. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Carnival Red is a bright tomato red creme. If you love reds, this one is amazing. I used 2 coats for these photos.
I don’t have a side view photo… because again… carbon based unit issue again.
This is a richly pigmented collection that gives you an amazing bang for your buck. The price point is amazing, and the formulas are great. Amazon Green is the only one that showed brush strokes, so if you hate seeing brush strokes on your manicures, I would avoid that one.
Where To Buy: Rite Aid, CVS, and other drug stores
For only $1.99 these shades are great, and I would even go as far to say that for the quality, I would be willing to pay up to 5 or 6 dollars for each shade. There is one shade missing from the swatches and that is Ocean Blue, and I haven’t spotted it yet, but I will buy it when I do!
