I ♥ NY! is the theme of my nails today. Ya see lately I’ve had an urge to ‘buy local’. So I searched Etsy for some cool polish made right here in New York and I think I scored big! Just check out this glitter! I am wearing Borough Babe Made nail color called LIC Queen.
I got a lot of glitter coverage in just two coats! Pictured here is one coat of Orly Ridge Filler, two coats of LIC Queen, and no topcoat. Looks beautiful even without a topcoat! I didn’t have any application issues. The base polish is relatively thick so the glitter suspends nicely. It dried pretty quick and I love the peachy nude base color. I tried three coats but that was overkill. No reason to go overboard when surprisingly, two coats is just perfect to give you plenty of the yellow, blue and orange hex glitter.
This polish is part of Borough Babe’s ‘NY Hoods” collection and is ode to Long Island City. I would like to add that I hope everyone in LIC is recovering from Hurricane Sandy. The devastation from that storm was unparalleled and I hope that the NYC and Long Island area is rebuilding and regaining normalcy. The news barely even mentions it anymore, but your neighbors have not forgotten!
Borough Babe nail color can be found here on Etsy. The seller has a promotion right now…get a free gift with international orders and free shipping in the US!

I like nude bases for some glitters – esp this time of year after so much color use over the holiday
I’ve been looking for this nail polish line called “Summer French” I saw it at a salon once getting a French mani. But I can’t find it online. Could you help me find it or recommend a good line for french mani/pedi?
I have a sally hansen french mani kit… but I think it chips way too fast. You could check out Orly! They have a whole special collection of french manicure colors 🙂
You just put LIC Queen on my wishlist!
That’s awesome! I keep staring at my nails… this polish is so unique and fun!
Very nice color and combination,
