NYC New York Color Midnight Beauty Collection 2014 (partial review)

Good morning!  I've got some Halloween polish to share with you today!  Grab your coffee and have a seat while we check out some of the new NYC New York Color Midnight Beauty Collection.  This is a limited edition collection, full of shimmer, creme and a very interesting "smoky topcoat."  The polish in this set of beauty products (there are also eyeshadow quads, lipsticks, eyeliner and mascara) are $1.99 each - such a great price for a good quality lacquer!  So let's jump in and take a look!

I started with Rock Muse Smoky Topcoat.  This is a sheer grey/black base with silver metallic glitters.  It's meant to be worn over other colors to give a dark, smoky look.  I like the idea of this polish but found it a bit hard to work with.  Smoky Topcoat would be great if I could have gotten even coverage in 1 coat, but it was streaky and uneven.  So I added a 2nd coat and it ended up looking looking darker than I thought it should.  I used 2 coats of Smoky Topcoat over Sally Hansen OMGhost and Pumpkin Queen.  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.

The other shade I have to share is Animal Instinct.  This is a soft orange-peach shade full of subtle golden-pink shimmer.  Animal Instinct had a great formula and applied perfectly.  It was creamy and opaque and such a fantastic color!  It's very Fall yet not because of the softer hue.  I used 2 coats of Animal Instinct for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.
