NOTD: NYX Margarita

This is NYX Margarita, which to me resembles a medium hot pink shimmer.
The consistency is a little runny, and it's quite sheer; I have four coats on, and if you look closely you can still detect the slightest VNL. Well, one more coat and it will probably be opaque.
The color is quite pretty, very summer-y, makes me think of rose buds for some reason...


Direct sunlight...
Indirect sunlight...


Do you like NYX nail polishes? Tell me your favorite shades :)

Hope to see you very soon,

4 coats? That's a lot!
Gorgeous color but that would frustrate me!

I have a few Nyx polishes, and they seem to be nice. I especially like the Nyx Girls Star polish I have, because it makes it easy to place decorations on my nails ;)

That's a pretty color, bright and cheerful! I just picked up some of this brand a few weeks ago, but haven't used them yet. Now I'm afraid of the 4 coat thing! I got Hot Pink Glitter, Nectar Glitter and Golden Pink.

Velvet said...

Hey Miss V! That's a lovely way o describe that color,"rosebuds"! I don't own any of these polishes. I've thought about ordering a few. But haven't got around to it. Oh... I checked out She Space cosmectics! I can see myself plotting an order sometime in the future. I think your a bad influence on me....lol!!

It is such a pretty shade of pink. I almost put an order in for Cult of Cherry. I figured I'd wait till I can order some nail polish. I saw plenty of colors that I'd like to have. I've never used NYX produts.

Hi Phyrra!
I agree; four coats IS frustrating :)

Hi Mary!
Not necessarily are all of them four coaters ;) I think the glitters are more sheer, though?

Hi Velvet!
Great; I'm glad to be an enabler :D

Hi Lucy!
There are so many colors to choose from. You got to check out the NYX lippies some day...;)

Tuli said...

This color is really nice - I really like those pinky shades :-)

About NYX, I've never used their polishes, but 4 coats sounds a lot...is it like that with all their polishes or just this one ?

Brooke said...

I have several NYX's and I like them. I think Las Vegas and Lime Sparkle are my faves from this brand.

Vanessa said...

Hi Tuli!
Yes, the color is pretty :)
I only have one more NYX polish that I've tried, but it was so long ago I can't remember... Will have to test it out again ;) I'll let you know.

Hi Brooke!
Oh; those two are gorgeous!! At least as far as I can tell from the online swatches that I've seen, since I don't have them myself ;)

Robyn said...

What a pretty color but bummer that it takes so many coats.

I love all the changes/additions you made to your blog.

Nixxy said...

Oh, YUM! I do find the NYX's pretty sheer as a rule, but they make up for that with the satiny formula, and they're pretty tough if you put a top coat on them.

Vanessa said...

Hi Robyn!
Yes, that's a bummer..
Glad you like the blog layout :)

Hi Nix!
I like the formula as well, (except for the sheerness of this one)
and as you say it hold up well with top coat.

I think this color is very pretty on you :)
I don't have any polishes from this brand, but I wish I did. haha

Pixie said...

I have no NYX polishes, but wow, that is gorgeous! Love it.

Vanessa said...

Hi Olivia!
You can order them from Cherry Culture, Nonpareil Boutique, Miss Cuppycakes or ebay, just to mention a few.. They're worth trying out :)

Hi Pixie!
I'm sure you will have a few eventually.. ;) lol!
