... nyc polish ...

Ooh ... it's a rare double post day. I saw this while in Woolworths this week for some reason at the end of the chocolate isle of all places. No not the toilet paper [although that is always an essential item!] but the box of NYC polishes. Oh dear - I can see 1 or 2 of them permanently escaping into my shopping trolley on a weekly basis.
Now I know that Ulta3 and NYC look the same in the bottles and I always thought they had the same names of colours ... obviously not. I haven't heard of any of these in this bin but some shades definitely look familiar. So Aussie chicks ... is this a new range or the old stuff with new names???? Google is letting me down on answers.

I did find a list of all the colours is available here at Crush Cosmetics though. I'll swatch the ones I've picked up this week in the near future.

  2. oooooh! Interesting! I haven't been to my local woolies to do any shopping lately! I may have to just pop in! This can't be a good thing. My poor purse!

  4. Glad it's not just me finding these. I've already ended up with 5 at home from visiting Woolies [argh!]

    I'm still assuming they are new colours

  5. Ooh baby! I'll have to keep an eye out next time I'm at Woolies. I've only ever seen NYC at 7 Elevens.

  6. @olgiepolgie - go for it! Hopefully your local Woolies has some. I dunno about the other girls but mine was nowhere near the makeup section but was easily spotted at the front of the store!

  7. I always thought NYC were Ulta3 too. That's it, I'm switching from Coles to Woolies today!! Are they the ones that have the city scape printed on the bottle? If so, they are definitely new.

  10. Awww... your bin of NYC colors looks a lot fuller than the bin that greeted me. I was way to excited to see the bin of nail polish, that I did not notice the police holding a guy down on the floor about 10cm away from the bin. *haha*

    I have heard in the past that ulta 3 & NYC have the same colours they just go under different names. I may have actually brought a dupe on the weekend, will have to check later, as I should be sleeping. :/

  14. Thanks Kate :) I did know that but in the past I've always picked up NYC bottles that have the same name/shade as Ulta3 while these are totally different and don't seem to appear as Ulta3
