NYC is hit or miss. I did a pedicure with this tonight. This is an extremely streaky formula and it took three coats to get opaque. Which is a miracle with my strange toenails because they have deep ridges. For the first time they look somewhat even and smooth. I also used this as an under color for a sheer yellow I wanted to try. In two coats the sheer yellow was opaque. I cannot review how long this lasts because I did the mani and pedi tonight. Overall, I will buy it again because this was dirt cheap. It was on sale for $.69, and for what I will use it for as an under color. I want to try it for a french mani. I think it will work beautifully for that purpose and probably for white dots on a mani.
If you're looking for a horrible white nail polish, you've found it. It's incredibly streaky, and even after two coats, it needs more. I would never buy this again. Still on the hunt for a good white nail polish.
NYC is really hit-or-miss with their formulas, which I guess is inevitable when the price point is 99¢. So in case you were wondering, French White Tip is a miss. Not worth 99¢. An ex-parrot.
The formula is streaky, runny, and uneven. It's pretty much impossible to get a solid white color payoff from this shade, so it's particularly unfortunate that it's advertised as ideal for doing your tips! Even White-Out would be a better choice. My advice to you is . . . don't. Just don't. Learn from my mistakes.
:/ ... this isnt the best nail polish for french tips. it is milky and streaky, and you need a few layers. the brush isnt that great.. even after a while, the polish gets sticky and hard to use. I use it as a base coat under crackle polishes. it looks nice like as a base... but this polish doesnt hold well with manicures. im still looking for a good white!
YES i would buy this again , its gooodd! i use this all over my nails:D
