Wonderful glittery true red for the holidays! Two thick coats gave great color, however this chips very easily. I don't mind because I wouldn't wear such a festive color otherwise. Would repurchase.

A decent NP for the price. Cherry red with 1 coat, builds up to a beautiful blue-based red with glitter within 2-3 coats. Great color for the Christmas holiday season, looks very festive.

The formula was a surprise for the price, not streaky and very forgiving. Dried quite quickly as well.

However, this NP chipped within one day for me, even with a no-chip topcoat and wrapping tips (I tried Revlon ColorStay and Sally Hansen).

I was browsing around Walmart's cosmetic aisle when I saw this for a dollar.
I thought the color was pretty, so I got it. I didn't have much expectation for its quality since its such a cheap polish.
Oh my goodness, I was so wrong!

Its a beautiful, intense blue-red with fine glitter. Its very sexy and captivating.
I've had several instances of people staring at my nails while I was riding public transit!

Longevity is amazing. Its has been four days since I've applied this polish. My manicure doesn't have a single chip on it! Its as smooth and shiny like it was applied fresh on the first day.

So cheap too! A dollar for this beauty!
I'm definitely going to pick up some more NYC polishes!

I love this color!!! It's great for all year round. It's glittery, but with a subtle touch. It's very beautiful. It reminds me of China Glaze's, Ruby Slippers, which is another of my faves. This one seems a bit more brighter, but not by much. It could be a dupe for Ruby Slippers. For .99 cents, it's a steal!!! Love it!!!

Such a fun color. The shimmer is really fine so you almost miss it. For 99 cents, this isn't bad at all. It chipped a lot even with topcoat, but not any more than any other polish. In fact, I found this much less streaky than other, more expensive polishes I've used. You def need at least 2 coats or it looks more magenta, but with 2 or 3 it really develops into a gorgeous red.
Btw--layered this over black polish and its AWESOME.

Lovely, bright, cool toned red that reminds me of jelly apples, aka candy apples to others. Sheer and magenta-red in one coat (and too streaky for one which is the norm for most polishes in my experience), you get opacity in 2 coats. However, 3 coats really brings it to life showcasing the warm red micro glitter which really borders on shimmer ( they're that small).

This does not need another color under, works very well on its own, though is also good for layering over other shades. Beautiful shade for winter, great cheap thrill as it cost a mere 99 cents (U.S). I have only worn bright reds as pedicures. I wear nudes or deep burgundy/wine shades on my hands yet I wear this shade on my hands and its mesmerizing! Be forewarned, not a shade for wallflowers!

Gorgeous red jelly with red micro glitter. I have no idea why this is called a burgundy. It's not really a deep red imo and the glitter is only really obvious in bright light as the previous reviewer mentioned. Opaque in 2-3 coats but even better over another polish. I've found it can be made varying shades of red depending on what you layer it over. On white it's a bright red and over pink it's mid tone red, but over a dark red or black it's a deep vampy red like it's name implies. Dries super glossy which I love because I can skip a top coat if I'm in a hurry.

Broadway Burgundy Frost is a misnomer because this certainly is not a frost. What it is, is a burgundy pink jelly base with bright red glitter. The glitter is just large and plentiful enough that it makes the polish look bright red in natural light and in flash photography. I'm tagging it red because that's what it ends up looking like. The jelly base is also thin enough that if you touch your nail after the polish, you can feel the particles of shimmer so use a top coat to smooth it out and keep it from chipping.

Application was easy; it is a thin polish but I found it easy to control. It is sort of sheer despite the richness of the color so a coat of a red, pink, or black base might be a good idea. Also, more coats just creates better and better color in my opinion and considering the first coat's color is gorgeous, this is only an improvement.

A gorgeous deep slightly shimmery burgundy that always gets me compliments when I wear it. Does chip fast though. For its price, you can get a decent polish that looks great with a little work.

This is such a beautiful color--one of the few reds I'll wear--but it's the only NYC color that chips on me like woah, even with a topcoat. Hence, I can't rate it highly and I wouldn't buy it again. I will definitely use up my current bottle, though, because it's opaque with a single coat, costs a mere $1, and isn't streaky or goopy. I wish I could rate this polish higher, but the major chipping makes it impossible for me to do so.
