NYC Midnight Beauty Collection-002 NYC Midnight Beauty Collection-003I am not affRED is a deep wine/merlot crelly. If builds up nicely and 2 coats gives you very full coverage but it can be a bit patchy in some spots, the patches are really only noticable in the sun. Indoors and in the shade this is a very deep color, any more than 2 coats and you get into the “almost black” category.

NYC Midnight Beauty Collection NYC Midnight Beauty Collection-001Animal Instinct is a coral- orange creme with hidden gold shimmer. I have to say that based on the promo pic I was looking forward to this color the most, I was hoping it would be similar to NYC Peach Sparkle which I have been searching for but have had no luck finding.  So when I got this and saw it was more orange than peach I was a little sad =( . My first thought when seeing the promo pic was, what would a peach shade being doing in a Halloween collection? However, it was my need for Peach Sparkle (dupe) that said, who cares I need the pretty! While this shade didn’t live up to my imagined standards it is a really pretty shade, and a very wearable orange for people who don’t want their polish to be ‘in your face’ bright. I used two coats to achieve full, opaque coverage and the formula on this was good.

NYC Midnight Beauty Collection-004Black Elixir is a deep black crelly. This goes on sheer at first but builds nice and two coats gives you full opaque coverage that dries to a nice shine.


Price: These retail for $1.99/e at your local drugstore that carries NYC Cosmetics products.

    This is quite the elegant Halloween collection. I like! My local Rite Aid just recently started carrying NYC so I’ll definitely be checking these out next time I pay them a visit. I’ll be hoping for a Peach a Sparkle sighting, too 🙂
