Hi everybody today I am back with some polish and make up for you. I am already a big fan of Nicka K New York and cannot rave about their polishes enough. This is my first time trying their shadows, but as I love make up I thought I would experiment a bit with some bright colours, which I normally stay away from on my eyes.
So I actually purchased the eye shadows from Beauty Crowd who are UK based and have started to sell Nicka K items, so that is fab news for us UK ladies. The prices for their products are absolutely fantastic with the polishes costing just £4.95 and the eyeshadow Quad also just £4.95. Polishes from Top to bottom are NY165 Wild Strawberry, NY170 Turquoise Blue, NY163 Deep Blue and NY171 Radical Red. The Shadow quad is called Napa. All of these are also available from the Nicka K New York website for those based in the US.
I am not a bright eyeshadow person, but I thought it would be nice to try something different. So The only complaint I have about Nicka K cosmetics is that they only have the number of the product on the label so the names are not on the products, but hey that is on a big deal really.
I was very impressed with the shadows, I did apply a white base before trying them as I wanted the colours to pop, you could probably get a more subtle effect if you just use a skin toned eye primer. The pigmentation was good. They are all shimmer shadows so if you are a Matte shadow fan these are not for you.
The look I created with these can be seen below.
As you can see it is quite a dramatic look, certainly not an everyday make up look that’s for sure, but with it being summer I think it’s acceptable 🙂
Ok lets move on to the polishes now.
First up is this beautiful neon red orange toned polish. I am not a fan of neons usually, but this one was absolutely gorgeous and I don’t think my picture actually does it justice. It was perfect in 2 coats as are most of Nicka K New York Polishes.
Ok so this is not colour accurate at all, and no matter how hard I tried my damn camera was not picking up the true colour and even when I tried to adjust it it still wasn’t quite right. Anyway it is still a beautiful colour and you would not be disappointed with it. Sorry it is not more colour accurate. Again this was perfect in 2 coats.
I love this colour, this bright neon pink is just a stunner. It was again perfect in 2 coats, and the colour popped, which is not always the case with neon polishes. I have had to apply white below other neons in the past or apply lots of coats for the colours to be vibrant, but no need for any of that with these polishes, absolutely fantastic quality.
Last but certainly not least is this gorgeous bright blue. What can I say but this is one of those perfect colours that suits any skin tone. And guess what it was perfect in 2 coats, but I’m sure you guessed that already 🙂
Overall I was extremely impressed with the items I reviewed, you can buy Nicka K New York products from their website and from the Beauty Crowd website. Keep a look out for some more make up and polish reviews coming soon.
