NYC Boat Basin Long Wearing Nail Polish
NYC has recently released some new shades in both it’s $1 Long-Wearing nail polish line and it’s $2 Quick Dry nail polish line; I’ve swatched a few of them now (see them all here), and I think Boat Basin, a saturated blue, is my favorite.
Here’s a comparison with two similar-ish shades; I was particularly wondering how it would compare to Nails, Inc. Baker St.
OPI Dating a Royal // NYC Boat Basin // Nails, Inc. Baker St.
OPI Dating a Royal is closest, but a bit dustier and darker; the difference is more noticeable in person. The NYC is actually my favorite of the three polishes – I just love the slightly dusty, intensely saturated deep-bright blue. Nails, Inc. Baker St. is just as saturated, but much lighter.
Note also that Nails, Inc. Baker St., Essie Butler Please, and Sally Hansen Pacific Blue are all very close; you can see comparisons of those three polishes here.
One final picture – this polish is just so gorgeous!
I don’t see anywhere to purchase this polish online, but it should be widely available anywhere that stocks NYC makeup.
