All aboard for London and New York!!

HELLO FELLOW FOLLOWERS!!

Today I take you around in the world in two days - via nail polish!!

These four colors that I will be displaying for you over these two days were a swap with a fellow nailboarder!!

She was super thoughtful for going to the trouble she did for me and I can't wait to reciprocate!!

Okay - on with the show!!

For swatching purposes I used Orly's top to bottom for tc & bc


She took me back quite a few years to my years of living overseas - oh the fun I had in my youth!! :-)

I wish America would do promotions like this - give away nail polish while promoting a soft drink!!  I don't know how much diet coke had to be acquired - but I do know that my friend bought enough diet coke to supply me, herself and some other American's I'm sure with these LE np's  - thank goodness she likes diet coke!!
Okay - can I just say that I LOVE this np!! 
This was only TWO COATS!!  Yes, that's how pigmented it was, and it went on smooth as buttah!!  I had very little clean up to do with her.
I was never one for really wearing taupes - because I thought they were just for, well - people who didn't like colour.  Boy, was I wrong!!  I didn't want to take this one off - but I smudged my finger (hence the three fingers showing) and I had some more swatching to do!!

Now off to
I personally thought New York should have been Red - but they reserved Red for Milan - which we'll see tomorrow.  Since Nails, Inc didn't ask me what colors to associate with which major city's - I concede to the Magenta!!
I'm not one for wearing many pinks - but this one will be worn quite a bit this summer!!  She is just GAWGEOUS!!  But she was a little shy - she took 4, yes I said 4 coats to be opaque - but she was so worth the work!!
She is really beautiful.  I was born reared and raised in New York and can I tell you - the memories that resurfaced while applying her - were just astounding.  I really did have those feelings of being back in the big city under the big lights, going to broadway plays and times square.
She is very festive but not over powering.  Subtle yet not shy.  I will be putting her on my toes this weekend and showing them off!!

  I am thankful and appreciative of my nb friend who favored me with these.  They are some awesome np's - smooth application and quick drying!!

So, where you able to take a trip to either of these countries either through np or actual travel?  I would love to know.
