Soooo I was super lucky to win the entire 9 polish Limited Edition Crystal Couture Collection from NYC New York Color! I think this is the LARGEST collection I've ever reviewed, aside from the most polishes I've reviewed in one post hahaha. So lets jump into it, no time to waste! Also - be sure to check out the very end of the post after you finish checkin' out the swatches ;]



NYC New York Color Queen of the City

Queen of the City is a deep, rich, shimmery red. Great vampy color for fall! I did 1 coat - yeeah, you heard that, ONE COAT - of Queen in the City. Application was smooth and easy to apply. No dry time issues to report!

This is Rule the City, a dark grey jelly with silver and red hex full coverage glitter polish. I really like the colors in thissssss! I was also super happy how opaque the coverage was. I did 2 coats of Rule the City. Application was great and no issues with dry time.

NYC New York Color Ruby Queen

This is the one I was most excited for! I almost grabbed it while I was polish hunting at K-mart. Ruby Queen is a ruby red jelly with bright red glitters adorned with purple hex. Stunning, isn't it? I sis 2 coats of Ruby Queen. Application was easy to work with and gave me no issues. I do suggest waiting between coats a little bit with this jelly, but it wasn't horrible.

NYC New York Color Royal Chic

Royal Chic is a rich, dark chocolate creme. I think of dark chocolate covered espresso beans! I wasn't expecting it to be so dark when I saw it in the bottle, but I was pleasantly surprised. Application was smooth and and easy to apply. Dry time was good but not impressive.

NYC New York Color Crown Gold

Crown Gold is a bronze-gold shimmer. This is a nice change to those super yellow gold polishes. This makes me think of fall leaves. I was kinda sad it left behind brush strokes, but meh. I did 2 coats of Crown Gold. Application was smooth and gave me no problems. Dry time was again good, but not anything impressive.

NYC New York Color Fashion Queen

Fashion Queen is a nice full coverage glitter with bronzy-gold glitters and silver hex. This is the glittery version of Crown Gold, pretty much. This is just magical to me. I want it on my nails for Christmastime haha. I did 2 coats of Fashion Queen. Application was easy to work with and the glitter covered very well! Dry time was great, no complaints.

NYC New York Color Queen's Jewels

Another color I was super stoked for! The Queen's Jewels is a dark green jelly with bright green glitter. There's nothing more I can say besides that I love it and it's awesome haha. I did 2 coats of Queen's Jewels. Application was a breeze and dry time was awesome!

NYC New York Color Blue Majesty

Blue Majesty is the blue version of Queen's Jewels, a blue jelly with bright blue glitter swimmin' around all up in it. Actually, there are 2 different sizes of hex which you don't see in the green. I love the bright shade of blue this polish is! I have a darker blue like this but I actually prefer this one :] I did 2 coats of Blue Majesty. Application was again, easy to work with and covered nicely. Another awesome dry time with this one!

NYC New York Color NY Princess

NY Princess is a grape purple jelly with bright purple and blue hex glitter. This is similar to Ruby Queen, the glitter is more sparse than the gold, green, and blue glitters above. I really like the blue glitters added in. They don't stand out but the just look freakin' badass! Hahaha I did 2 coats of NY Princess. Application was great and easy to apply. Dry time was okay, I'd wait between coats a little bit but it wasn't horrible.
