New York Summer: Amaranth

New York Summer Amaranth (3 coats)

Happy Halloween Eve! Sorry I was MIA yesterday, but I am going to be posting sporadically for the next few weeks. I have to print off my dissertation tomorrow (I'm back in Tennessee right now) so I have to get ready for my defense. Blah! I feel bad that I haven't really shown any good Halloween polishes (besides the China Glaze polishes) but I've just been so busy lately. I hope you can understand! 

New York Summer is a new brand to me. Transdesign has their polishes, but I never bit the bullet until my last order. At $1.59 you just can't go wrong! I know lots of people are wanting the elusive NARS Zulu that was recently repromoted (you can find it here at Sephora), but I just felt like I had seen other really cool green jellies so I didn't want to shell out the $16. I'm not saying that New York Summer Amaranth is a dupe, but I can enjoy this nice green jelly polish. It definitely seems a bit lighter than Zulu. Despite being a jelly, it is quite opaque with three coats which is shown here. I was very impressed with the formula and application as well. Overall, if you want a nice green jelly and you're on a budget, definitely check out this polish. 

I hope you are having a fun and safe Halloween weekend! What are you dressing as, and more importantly, what polish are you wearing with it?
