Mrs P's Nail Potions - I ♥ NY Collection Swatches & Review... Finally ;)

Guyssss! Guess what I FINALLY have to show you today! The I ♥ NY collection by Mrs P's Nail Potions! This collection is based off of Sex And The City. I've never watched that show so I can't say anything about whether the colours fit the characters or the show. Sorry haha. I'm sure some of you have watched it, though.
Unfortunately the post takes a long time from Canada to Aus but it's ok because these were well worth the wait! :D Don't quote me on this (seriously, don't lol) but I heard that the postal system in Canada has changed very recently and now things won't take so long to ship from there? (Correct me if I'm wrong... I just heard it lol).

I posted a preview of this collection a few months ago, HERE. If you'd like an in depth description of each polish and where the inspiration comes from for each polish, you should check out that post. :)

All Lawyered Up
All Lawyered Up is a pink-ish red jelly base with medium red and orange hex glitters.
This was great to apply, I had no issues at all. I did have to move the glitters around a little to get them where I wanted but that's nothing unusual for glitters. :) Swatch shows 2 coats with top coat.

Can't Colour Enough 
Can't Colour Enough is a pink shimmery base with loads of glitter in different colours, shapes and sizes!
 This is so fun! :) It would be perfect for a birthday party or something! I didn't want to take this off when I swatched it! Haha. I added a little thinner to this one because it was a teeeeny bit too thick for me but nothing terrible. :) Swatch shows 3 coats with top coat.

Searching For Mr Right 
Searching For Mr Right is a white base with pink hearts, small pink holographic glitter as well as iridescent glitter.
This is so insanely cute but unfortunately it was a bit of a pain to apply. :( It was very thick, much too thick for me, so I thinned it but even then it was hard to work with. :( I'm sad because I was SO excited for this one! I think this polish would be best to wear over an opaque (or sheer) white polish so you don't have to do multiple coats. This also would've been so perfect for Valentine's Day! Dang! haha. Swatch shows 2 coats with top coat.

The Big Apple
The Big Apple is a black jelly base with small silver glitter, red hex glitter and white diamonds.
This looks so awesome! I love it! The diamond glitters required a bit of fishing to get out of the bottle but it wasn't impossible. The black base would be pretty sheer on its own I'd imagine, so I layered it over an opaque black. Swatch shows 1 coat over an opaque black with top coat.

The Naked Dress
The Naked Dress is a nude jelly base with small and medium gold hex glitters.
I'm not totally sure how I feel about this one on me. I don't think this nude works great with my skin tone but I still really like it! It's probably one of the most work appropriate indies that I've seen! It's subtle but still sparkly and pretty! Swatch shows 3 coats with top coat.
PS. Sorry about the close up shot for this one. I forgot to take a proper close up and I didn't want to leave it with no close up at all. :(

My favourites would probably have to be The Big Apple and Can't Color Enough! :) I just wish the formula on Searching For Mr Right was a bit nicer, then that would definitely be up there in my faves too!
