So today I'm sharing with you the first 4 that I purchased. Any surprise that my first would be a blue? Here is Ocean Blue. This is a light denim blue with silver shimmer. The formulation was great, almost a one-coater, but I went with two coats to achieve a full opaque finish. But be sure to wear a good base coat because I did experience some staining, but not a lot.
Next, I have Purple. I would have appreciated a more creative name, but "to the point" naming is common for NYX. This is a mid-purple with a fine silver shimmer. Here I'm wearing two coats, but see that three would have been better. This dries to a matte satin finish. I didn't experience any staining with Purple.
Here is Delectable, a rose-pink with gold flakes. Of these four, probably my favorite. I need to do some comparisons with some of the Zoya polishes in my stash. This is reminding me of a couple I own. This is two coats and I love the finish.
Lastly is Extreme Purple. This is a true royal purple cream. As with most purple, my camera did not want to cooperate. The application was smooth, not too thick or too thin. I wanted to add a little bling, so I did accent nails using China Glaze Prism from the Prismatic collection.
So that concludes part 1 of my NYX Advanced Salon Formula collection. There will be others. My overall first impression is that like most of the NYX product line, I really do like these polishes. The formula is easy going. The brush is slightly wider than the standard narrow brush. The color selection is a good size, with over a 100 different shades and finishes. The price is affordable. I paid $3.49 per bottle and the bottle is 0.52 fl oz whereas the average nail polish is 0.50 fl oz. I have seen them on Cherry Culture for $3.50-$4.00. Availability may be the only hindrance. While I found them at a local beauty supply store, I don't see the brand readily available. Although Ulta carries the NYX line, I haven't seen the polishes in any of my local Ulta stores. They can also be purchased directly from the NYX Website.
So overall, if you haven't given these polishes a try, I would definitely suggest that you do. I know I will be adding more to my collection.
If you are familiar with this NYX Advanced Salon Formula collection, what are some of your favorites?
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
