I love this nail color. Pigmented, bright, quick drying, and long wearing. It looks good after one coat, but it looks best after two. It dries quickly and doesn't smudge or bubble. It does NOT need a white base under the nail like some bright colors do. It really is long wearing and I work retail, which is not easy on polish. The only downside is it does require a topcoat to look it's best....it dries a bit dull.
I waited a bit before trying this one. Needing a break from my blue nails phase, I turned to this. It is a punchy tropical pink creme. Very pretty!
This is a fantastic inexpensive nail polish. In the bottle, this looks like a basic, dark hot pink color. Once applied, this is actually a bright pink that leans slightly coral in brighter lights, and being a huge fan of coral, I love it! It's bright enough to get people's attention, but it's not so bright that it's obnoxious. This shade also looks great on the toes.
Application with this is a breeze, even though I find the brush a little longer than most. No problems with streaking or bubbling, totally opaque in 2 coats, and dries to a shiny cream finish.
The best thing about this polish is that it really lasts a long time on the nails. On my hands, higher end polishes typically last a week or so before chipping, and I notice tip wear after 3-4 days. This polish holds up just as well as Orly, China Glaze, OPI, and Essie, and it only costs a little over one dollar!
If you're looking for a bright pink polish this summer with coral-y undertones, definitely check out Pink Promenade.
I purchased this polish for $1.27 at Walmart (Canadian), and for the price it's decent, but not something I would repurchase. I like the colour, streak-free formula, opacity, and quick drying time. I find this polish isn't long wearing at all despite it's name. With two coats this chips and flakes off within a day, but with a top coat I can get maybe two to three days. Personally I would prefer to spend a little bit extra money and purchase a more durable polish.
The color is a gorgeous pink but it takes 3 to 5 coats to achieve the best look. My first real disappointment with NYC as far as chipping. Even with protective top coat it chips. 99 cents though so it doesn't hurt to keep on hand when I'm feeling like a bubblegum pink.
This was just the summery hot pink I was looking for! Goes on pretty smoothly, lasts decently well, and is just a fabulous rich shade of bright pink. The fact that it's 99 cents makes this such a steal. I highly recommend this!!
I received this polish from my mother when she was editing her stash. I couldn't believe that she didn't want this color anymore!! It's a great eye-popping pink that goes on like a dream and only requires two coats.
With my base coat/top coat combo, this polish holds up pretty well, with tip wear and minor chips after a few days (I usually change my nail color every 2-3 days ) and that's with normal wear and tear (and even before I was wearing gloves to do dishes, GASP!). Another winner by NYC!
I love this nail polish color! The price is unbeatable at under $1.. I bought this on a whim one night wandering around walmart. I was a bit skeptical because of how cheap it was, but I gave it a go because I just couldn't bare to spend $9 on Essie at that moment. This stuff applies smoothly, and easily. 2 coats is enough..and this polish is VERY long lasting. My finger nails go through a lot, as do my toes. I had this polish on my feet for almost 2 weeks, it didn't chip at all, the only spots that were missing polish were the parts where my nail had grown. The color stayed true and vibrant. Amazing for 97 cents!
LOVE the color, looks great with my skin tone and really pops. Two coats leaves a beautiful finish. But this stuff chips like CRAZY. Maybe it's because I don't use a base / top coat? I never do with any polish I use. The quality is what you'd expect for a dollar, but I like the color so much, it's worth it.
This is my first New York Color polish. Pink Promenande Creme is a shocking pink with coral undertones. It is very pigmented, and you can get by with just one coat of polish.
I read some other reviews here about NYC polishes in general, and saw some complaints about the nail color not always being true to the bottle color except after a million coats. Reviewers recommended prepping the nail with a neutral color before painting with the NYC polish. I did a test with one nail being base+2 coats color+top and another nail with a coat of Essie's Marshmallow (a cloudy white) before the color coats just to see how much of a difference it made. I barely noticed any difference. The nail without a neutral coast was a little darker and a tad more coralish instead of pinkish. I don't think the difference is enough to warrant pulling out another bottle of polish.
