Your first look: New Nicka K New York Nail Colors & Lip Colors Review & Swatches

Good afternoon, lovelies!

Today, I have a sneak peak of a few of the new line of nail colors and  Lip Colors from Nicka K New York. Let's get started!

 Gold Shimmer, Apricot, Lavender, Ice Berg
Dolphin, Velvet Green, Royal Fuchsia, Violet

Gold Shimmer
 No need for a description here, the name says it all! The perfect name for this nail polish. This was 1 generous coat.

Apricot is a soft, peachy pink creme. This was a tad streaky, but evened out after the second coat. This was my least favorite from the bunch. I think that this color has been replicated so many times and since I have many others that are similar, if not the same.

A soft, lavender creme. The formula was extremely smooth and was opaque after two coats. Lavender has made its way to my top picks in this post! 

Ice Berg
Another color that has made it to my top picks is, Ice Berg. Its a gorgeous, sky blue infused with aqua shimmers. I looked through my stash and found nothing similar! This was two easy coats. 

This is my absolute favorite from this collection! Dolphin is a beautiful, turquoise infused with aqua micro shimmers. This picture does not do any justice! It's so much more vibrant and stunning in person. This was one, yes one, effortless coat!

Velvet Green
I had a difficult time catching the color from this nail polish. -_- This is a vibrant, forest green shimmer. This was also one generous coat. 

Royal Fuchsia
Hmmm, IMO, I would say this is more of a magenta infused with violet shimmers. This was one generous coat. 

A vibrant, purple infused with violet shimmers. This has rounded off my top picks from this post! This was one coat, but perhaps an additional coat would have made it more opaque. 

NK Nail Enamel vs Nicka K New York Nail Colors

Lavender, Dolphin, Ice Berg, and Violet

Hypes! (The good)
Big 3 Free 
Great formula
Easy application
Richly pigmented
Most are 1 coaters
Average dry time

Yikes! (The not so good)
Apricot was a bit streaky
May be hard to fine aside from online

Overall, I'm loving these nail polishes. I have to say that I am quite impressed that many of them only required one coat. Just by looking, I thought that the last 4 colors would be sheer, but that just goes to show you, don't judge a nail polish by the bottle! ;) I also love the packaging. The handle does not interfere with application, but seems to act as a nice grip. Nothing but, good vibes with this new line of nail polishes!

Lip colors: 
Nicely pigmented - Doe foot applicator - Non-sticky - Lightly scented citrus - Flavorless - 2 hours of wear time before reapplication 

Each will retail for $4.99 ea on the Nicka K website
These have yet to be released and I will keep you all posted.
Nicka K New York Nail Colors consists of 44 new nail polish colors. 
Salon quality formula that has been improved for smooth, easy application

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!
