Tested: NYC Expert Last Nail Polish in Persistent Putty

During my CVS haul, I picked up this polish b/c 1. it's pretty! and 2. it says it will last for 7 days, so I put it to the test (okay, for 5 days at least).  The polish is two coats for a nice creme finish.  I did not use a base coat or top coat in order to test the actual polish.

Retail: $2.49 for .33 ounces
Availability: Part of the Limited Edition 7 day line by NYC
Color: Persistent Putty (that taupey, purpley in some lights color)
Dupe for: Sally Hansen Commander in Chic (seriously, I had them both ready to buy)
Even with that major chipping by day 5, I would still repurchase this polish b/c I think with a top coat, it could last longer.  I also tend to have a lot of wear on my nails b/c I am at my computer 8 hours a day for work, pounding at keys.  The color payoff is great for drugstore.  The polish could be touched up.  I didn't touch up due to testing.  But for $2.49, I would give the other colors a shot.


  1. I've had $20 polishes that were not that great quality either, so I'd definitely try this out!

  2. I agree! And I was really surprised at the coverage...I was expecting it to take many more coats.

  3. What a pretty color, remind sme of Barry M Mushroom (:

  4. It's really pretty! Can't believe it's an NYC polish :) Lasted pretty good as well

  5. Lovely colour,next on my long wishlist :)

  6. 5 day quite good for the price at leats!!

    and planning. Games that have a rating of 18+ are often very
    violent. Before I hit the Start War button I ask all
    my co-leaders and elders if they have concerns of someone being too inactive during the week or anyone
    saying they would be away for the war.
