Review: NYC Scenestealer Gray

NYC sent in 3 polishes for review, the first I will be reviewing is Scenestealer Gray. It is a pretty gunmetal blue-gray.

Pros: I really like the color. The brush is flat and I really like the way it applies. The polish wasn't thick. With two coats it was pretty opaque. It still hasn't chipped after 24 hours. 
Cons: I don't know if this is a fast drying polish but some polish would dry and goop onto the brush and kind of mess up my nails. I don't know if I was going too slow. All I know is I did not like when this happened. It happened twice.

Also, this color is a very close sister to Deborah Lippmann's Hit Me With Your Best Shot. I would not say it is a dupe. D.L.'s is darker. I would say it is really close. If you want HMWYBS, Scenestealer Gray is a very reasonably priced alternative. They are both gunmetals. They both wear well.

NYC can be found at most Drug Stores. I've seen them most at Wal-Mart's, they have a larger selection. They are .97, I believe.
