Easter Mani and NYC Quick Dry Top Coat Review

Happy Easter! Here is my Easter mani!

Base: On Ice (not sure what the name of the color is)
Sponged Pink: China Glaze - Sweet Hook
Sponged Mint: Wet n Wild megalast - I Need A Refresh-Mint
Top Coat: NYC - Quick Dry Top Coat



The NYC top coat dried very quickly and was very shiny! Maybe not as Seche Vite, but pretty close and $8 cheaper. 

Have you guys tried this top coat?

Love, Bethany

  1. I just bought it and love it. Inexpensive, and, it doesn't smudge my stamping. Cute color choices. Very subtle and blends perfectly.

  2. Love your spongeing! I have the NYC "Shiney" topcoat and it's ok, as long as my polish isn't too thick or it bubbles horribly. Good to know the quick dry one is better.

  3. wow your sponging makes your nail look almost holographic!! It's so subtle, it looks as if the colors are only visible at certain light!
    I LOVE IT!

  6. I've only done sponging once, and it did NOT look like yours ;-) Awesome job! And thanks for the tip about the top coat...I have NYC's Matte Top Coat, and it works fantastically too!

  7. I haven't tried this top coat but I've heard and read so many good things about it, so I've searched to find a shop that sells it online. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find it yet.

  8. Ooh I like On Ice, it looks like a mix of OPI skull and glossbones and Stranger Tides! Pretty sponging :)

  9. NYC is the only quick dry top coat I'll use. I swear by it and must always have a bunch on reserve. Because it's so cheap, I don't mind that it becomes to thick to use after 3/4 of bottle.

    1. Seche Vite gets thick like that, but it's annoying because it's so expensive!
