NYC Rock Muse smoky topcoat

Hey everybody! How has the new year started out for you?

Mine started out a bit dramatic in the nail department :( I was visiting family on new years day when I closed the car door and my hand slipped on the handle...I broke 3 nails on my left hand in the process :( I could fix 2 of the broken ones by filing my nails down all the way to (and a little bit over) the fleshy thingy on the underside, but my index finger broke neatly around the flesh. So it didn't really hurt, but now I have 4 square and 1 round nail lol.
Soooo, I will show you my right hand for a while. Please bear with me as I am a total idiot with my left hand and taking pictures is going to be a challenge.

But for today I still have a left hand picture for you from before the drama lol. Here I am showing you the New York Color - Rock Muse smoky topcoat. It is supposed to give your basecolor a smoky, blackened look but I really don't like that to be honest. It takes away from the glow of the basecolor and it is always streaky. But, as for this particular topcoat, it can be worn easily on its own!
This is 3 thick coats and it's still squishy though opaque and it really shows though all the layers of glitter.

Hope you like this it and see you soon!

  4. I'm sorry for your nails...Car doors are dangerous!!!!! I think that these smoky top coats are sometimes disappointing (as Essence one from Rebel TE) on colored bases, especially if they remain streaky, but I like this one on its own.

  10. I really don't mean to spam so I hope you don't mind me posting this, but I love Rock Muse over gold/bronze. Honestly as gorgeous as your nails look here, I have never felt the need to use this by itself. Maybe that's to do with how much I hate removing glitter polishes from my nails though ;-)
