Mrs.P's Nail Potions: IHeartNY Collection

I've got something pretty exciting today, it's the entire I<3NY Collection from Mrs.P's Nail Potions!  There are 5 polishes in this collection, each represents one of the main characters in Sex and the City.  I've used Mrs.P's descriptions of the inspiration behind each different polish, and all photos are two coats without topcoat.  Let's get right to it!



Can't Colour Enough is "inspired by Samantha Jones and her colourful and out there personality and fashion.  It's a neon pink jelly with a little bit of extra fine holographic glitter for that shimmer and sparkle to represent the life in the fast lane aspect of Samantha and then is loaded with many different glitters of different shapes and sizes kind of like a party confetti to represent all the high profile PR events and parties that Samantha attended and organized/hosted."


Application on this one was a little tricky.  I dabbed on the first coat to get the glitter spread evenly, a second coat evened it out nicely and was much easier to apply.  At first glance I thought it would be a lot like DL/Claire's Candy Shop, but looking at it now, it looks like the pink sister of P&P Pool Party.  This one isn't personally my taste at all, but I think that the extra fine holo glitter adds a nice touch to an exciting polish!


All Lawyered Up is "inspired by Miranda Hobbs.  She has the simplest of style of all the girls and is the iconic redhead of the show.  Most times you see her in her straight-laced suits as she is a lawyer so I thought I would keep this Potion very simple and straightforward and bring in the red/orange to represent her hair.  It's a red jelly base with medium hex glitters in red and orange."


This polish applied fairly easily, it had a good consistency and the glitter spread itself pretty well with just a few extra strokes of the brush.  The vibrant orangey-red jelly base just screams "redhead" to me, it's so perfect!  I used two coats here for complete coverage, though I think it would look even better with a third to add more depth to the jelly!  (Please ignore the ding on my ring finger, silly me!)



Searching for Mr. Right is "inspired by Charlotte York and her forever search for the perfect husband.  Charlotte was always a hopeless romantic and believer in true love.  It's a white jelly with pink heart glitters and fine white iridescent and holo pink glitter.  It's very pretty and romantic and girly, just like Charlotte."


I like the finished look of this polish, but I think that my bottle was missing the iridescent glitter.  My photos look quite different from Bree's own photos in her Etsy shop.  Application was troublesome with this one; the white base is a little patchy  and the hearts needed to be placed on.  I think the base is maybe a little too opaque, I had hoped that the hearts would show through more.  I used two coats; probably would have been better with three thinner coats because it was getting a little thick.  Formula aside, I think this is a really cute and girly polish, and would be perfect for Valentine's Day!



The Big Apple is "inspired by Carrie's two true loves, Mr. Big and New York City.  It's a black jelly which represents the nice tailored black suits Mr. Big usually wears with fine silver sparkles to represent the spark between Carrie and Mr. Big and all the lights of NYC.  There is also white diamond glitter which I thought picked up on the crisp white shirts Mr. Big always wore under his suits and red hex glitters to represent the love that Carrie feels for both Mr. Big and NYC.  Red is also the colour of apples and NYC is the big apple after all!"



Unfortunately, my anticipated favourite of the collection was a bit of a letdown, and it's probably my fault.  I used two coats by itself because most the other swatches I've seen are over a black creme, and now I see why.  It's perfectly opaque by itself in two coats, but it's quite thick and the glitters don't sit well at all on top of each other.  I'll swatch this one again soon over a black creme, because I'm sure it will be tons better and I really want to love this one! 

**EDIT: I've reswatched The Big Apple; one coat over black with one coat of Seche Vite.**



The Naked Dress is "inspired by Carrie Bradshaw and her famous "naked dress" from Season 1 on her first date with Mr. Big.  It's a nude jelly with gold holo glitter in fine and medium hex.  The gold glitter represents the "Carrie" necklace that she always wore and treasured throughout the entire series."


I've saved my favourite for last!  Nude jelly with gold holo glitter?  Yes, please!  This nude is super flattering, and the glitter is so perfectly dispersed in the polish for a nice even coating.  Application on this one was the easiest of them all, not a hitch!  I imagine this would be a great work-appropriate polish, nude with just that little bit of sparkle.  My mom has had her eye on this polish ever since it came in the mail, you can bet the mini bottle of this will go pretty quickly! 


This collection is currently available at Mrs.P's Nail Potions Etsy shop.  She is also doing a giveaway this month where the lucky winner will receive (free of charge, all they have to pay is postage) a full-sized set of the entire collection!  For every bottle of Mrs.P's Nail Potions that is purchased during the month of November, you will get one entry into the giveaway!   You can keep up to date with Mrs.P's Nail Potions on Facebook and Twitter

I love The Naked Dress, but All Lawyered Up is a close second!  Which polish is your favourite from this collection?

  1. They look a little lumpy - were they? Surprisingly, I kind of like that first one. I'm not even a pink person x_x; I think it's the MLP lover in me... Pinkie Pie xD

    1. They can get a little lumpy depending how many coats you use, as with pretty much any heavy glitter polish but it's nothing a top coat can't fix and smooth out and as Emma said these pics are all without top coat.

    2. Yes, they were lumpy as are most glitter polishes without topcoat, though a thick coat of Seche Vite or another heavy topcoat would smooth it right out!

  2. Thank you for the review Emma! Sorry for any disappointment and I know some of these polishes can be tricky. I'm not entirely sure what happened with your Searching for Mr. Right as it does look different but I swear I made all the bottles the same. Maybe the white pigment in yours got a little bit away on me and there was slightly more and it may have overpowered some glitters. Cuz the iridescent glitters are more white rainbow glitters so maybe they are just hiding in there somewhere. I also noticed that top coats made a huge difference with some of these and brought out the sparkle even more. Also obviously evens out any lumps and bumps too :)

    But on the whole I'm very pleased with your review and I'm glad you enjoyed these for the most part :)

    1. I'm sorry I couldn't do the pictures with topcoat, but I only have a third of a bottle of Seche Vite left and don't know when I'll be able to get more. And I'm sure you know how expensive it is here in Canada! I commented on IG as well, but I'll re-swatch The Big Apple soon over a black base, and I'm sure it will look better! By the time I was going through the photos it was too late to re-do them, and I figured I might as well get the post up since the rest of them were done. Overall I did really enjoy the collection, very unique! :)

  3. i think the big apple would be pretty cool if it applied smoother. have you tried using gelous to smooth out the glitters?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, I think it'll be a lot better over a black base! As for gelous, it's not easily available for me. I'm planning on picking some up as soon as I can though, I've heard lots of great stuff about it!

  4. These are stunning! I love all but the red one and that is only because I am not a fan of red. Your swatches are amazing on your blog and it is shocking to think you are only 16. Are you really?? You sound so mature and well-written. Your blog is fantastic and quickly becoming a favorite of mine!
