1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats NYC Jacaranda Flower
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite
I popped into Rite-Aid over my break yesterday, on a quest for the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Electric Summer Collection....... and found the NYC City Samba Collection instead! In addition to Jacaranda Flower, I picked up Sweet Melon, Ocean Blue, and Tropicoral. I knew I wanted to wear purple today, and since new polish is always at the forefront of my mind... Jacaranda Flower was the natural choice!
Application was really good. I like the brush size on NYC polishes... not too big, not too small. I probably could've done just two coats, but my painting environment was humid, and I could've sworn I needed a third coat. I topped it off with a coat of clear followed by Seche Vite, and this time around... no smudges or re-painting necessary! Woohoo!
Oh, and if you're wondering what a jacaranda flower looks like? I was wondering too...
The color is spot-on... don't you think? Such a pretty blue-leaning bright violet! Despite the fact that Jacaranda Flower comes from a summer collection, I think you could wear it any time of year, and it doesn't feel particularly trendy. But it is Limited Edition... so if you want it, I'd grab it while you can! The display in my store had $1 off coupons attached to it, so my polishes were just $.99!!!
What do you think of Jacaranda Flower?
