NYC are one of those brands that remind me of being 14, browsing Superdrug's shelves with pocket money burning a hole in my pocket. I'll admit, however, that past that age I stopped paying much attention to NYC besides the occasional polish or lipstick - why? We seemed to grow apart. And NYC didn't seem to grow at all, clinging to a rather mid 90's teen look and feel which didn't do much to grab my attention. Until recently...

SILVER LIGHT - Gleaming, bright silver. An utterly gorgeous shade I love wearing just above my ordinary black catflick eyeliner. Three coats to maximum opacity, fast drying.
LIQUID GOLD - An orange toned, bright gold. A real Cleopatra shade which would look amazing on any blue eyed girls and guys out there. Three coats to maximum opacity, fast drying.
All in all, for £2.99 they're not half bad! My only qualms are that they are not opaque in one coat, 'Serpentine Purple' is awful and they flake just slightly. Other than that, it's all uphill - fast drying, brilliant shine, unusual colours, smudge proof, fade resistant and easy to apply. I'd definitely recommend trying 'Leopard Print' out of all four - it's such a beautiful shade!
Available priced at £2.99 each from Superdrug.
