It's that time again, NYC fans! I've been covering the NYC limited edition seasonal collections for several years here on the blog, and the summertime collections are always a personal favorite. So I'm excited to tell you that the NYC Limited Edition Summer 2014 City Samba Collection is about to hit stores, and I've got a sneak peek of what you can expect to find starting this June (aka: next week!).


THINK: A Brazilian beauty escape.

NYC New York Color is bringing the sexy beaches and sizzling sun of Brazil to New York with a new, limited edition City Samba collection filled with Brazilian fun and flare.

The shades:  Coral Samba and Rosa Rio.

In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish ($1.99): Ultra-quick dry nail enamel in electrifying summer shades. These high pigment colors are infused with a hint of shimmer for brilliant, tropically-hued nails that won’t fade. The nail strengthening formula is infused with magnesium, iron, copper, and calcium for beautiful nails and specifically formulated to dry in lightning speed time to a dazzling, high shine finish.

The shades: Amazon Green, Carnival Red, Copabanana, Jacaranda Flower, Ocean Blue, Palm Tree, Sweet Melon and Tropicoral.

  1. !!!!!! O_O !!!!!!
    Can't. Wait. Must. Find. Now!!

  2. Is NYC going on sale soon? No need to rush to buy. It seems like I'm the only one in my town crazy for nail polish. All the displays just sit in the store fully stocked for weeks on end.

    I want all these polishes... except for the green one. There is way to much green in my collection..

  3. And I want the lip gloss too. Seems like I have 2 crazy makeup obsessions. What's next?

  4. Oh my my!!! Cant wait to lay my hands on d collection.. Esp d coral samba bronzer n d nail polishes 😍 thanks for sharing sweets 😘

  5. I'll probably skip the nail polishes, but I'm in LOVE with those powders.

  6. Those lips colors are so pretty!

  7. Hopefully "hint of shimmer" doesn't mean "hidden shimmer" as far as the polishes go :)

  8. Oh I think I will be cleaning out this display when I find it! Good thing I have a couple of coupons!!!

  9. So many things look interesting here!

  10. Passion Fruit & Guava are calling my name -- need a bit of a tan/faux tan boost and those colors might just do the job!

    Can't wait!!

  11. I love the glosses and those bronzers....yum!

  12. No luck yet at CVS or rite aid... I'll try walgreens and Harmon next.

  13. I can't wait to get my hands on the Papaya and Passion Fruit lip glosses!

  14. For the record this is my absolute favorite lip gloss. I have tried all ranges from Stila and MAC to Wet and Wild. This formula is absolutely amazing. The color is incredible and my lips are so soft. I definitely can't wait for the fall line to come out.
