I saw NYC Empire State Blue on a recent trip to Kmart. It spoke to me. In the bottle it looks like a bit of a duo-chrome, but it was really hard to see any of that once it was on my nail. Despite the disappointment, it's beautiful!
It went on like a dream too. Two coats gave me great coverage and the formula was easy to work with. To dress things up I dug out my Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe and made me an accent nail.
This is the first time I've used Across the Universe. Why do I keep waiting so long to use these fantastic polishes? I've had this gorgeous blue jelly glitter for a while now. I pull it out every now and again, but always ended up putting it back in the drawer. It was the perfect match for Empire State Blue so I went for it.
So happy I did! One of those manis that you find yourself admiring throughout the day. I'm loving blues more and more lately.
