NOTD: NYC Rule the City

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Feel like something dark and something stands out on your nails today? Try NYC Crystal Couture top coat in Rule the City (Fashion Queen collection, Fall 2014).

Rule the City has red micro glitters and silver shimmers on a charcoal black base. Opaque enough on its own, no colour base needed.

This is the only shade I asked my friend to hunt down among other mono-toned glitter jellies from Fashion Queen, $1.99 in the US. As far as I know, Canada did not get this collection.

I used 2 coats coat of Rule the City here, and, like I said, no base. I love it when a glitter polish does this, save me time and $. Note that this is not a texture polish.

Since the base is charcoal, not black, I reason that the mani is not too over the top for work and wear it during the week.

The red glitters make this shade a lot more fun to wear, a nice contrast to the snow we have been getting :)

Hang in there, I heard it gets warmer for the weekend after the snow we will be getting this evening. And only one more day till Friday!


  1. Ooooh that's really pretty! No snow for me, but it is really cold and rainy. -_- Not a fan. lol

    1. Took me an extra hour to get home yesterday, because of that snow. You are not missing out anything lol
