(L->R) Tropicoral, Copabanana, Palm on the Beach, and Jacaranda Flower

Hey ya'll! I was sent a few colors from NYC New York Color's new City Samba Collection to review. I haven't used this brand of polish for awhile but reviewing them again refreshed how awesome these polishes are to work with for the price that they are. Check out these fun, bright, summertime creme polishes after the jump!

(PS: Anyone have any idea how to get rid of those stupid stripes on my photo?! LOL annoys the hell out of me!)

Tropicoral is a bright, pink-coral, creme polish. All the corals I've encountered this year have been orange corals, so I welcomed a new coral with open arms haha Great color for summertime! I did 2 coats of Tropicoral. This had a nice application with no dry time issues.

Copabanana (I love this name LOL!) is a bright, banana yellow creme with yellow-gold shimmer.  If you like bright, cheery yellows - I highly suggest you check this one out! I did 3 coats of Copabanana. The dry time for this was amazing for a yellow creme. I could of got away with 2 coats but I needed 3 to even it out. No issues otherwise.

Palm on the Beach is a bright, cool toned summertime green.  I had a pedicure color identical to this when I went to Oklahoma, but none similar in my collection - so YAY!  Great color :] I did 2 coats of Palm on the Beach. I ran into no issues with application or dry time.

Jacaranda Flower is a medium purple creme. This reminds me of Wet n Wild Megalast On a Trip. This purple reminds me of jellybeans for some reason lmao, but it is super pretty. I did 3 coats of Jacaranda Flower. The first coat was crazy sheer in comparison to the other polishes. I needed 3 coats to even it out. No issues otherwise :]

With all these bright, fun, summertime colors, how could I NOT do a fun colorful mani! I used a detailing brush and did a (slightly crappy LOL) chevron pattern. I added NYC's Matte Me Crazy mattifying top coat, which I think makes it look 10x better :P What do you prefer??
