Happy Sunday, and welcome back! My Sunday polish this week is a souvenir from my last vacation. This is City of Dreams from Prevail; I’m wearing three coats with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.
City of Dreams is a coral creme polish. Application was good, though the product consistency was a little thin. After two coats, some nails were still a little streaky and needed a third coat. The polish dries quickly, though, and with a smooth and glossy finish. I used top coat for extra protection.
So while the polish itself isn’t special, the sentiment is. A couple years ago, I was in New York, and I was buying polish everywhere. I got a few bottles from the Macy’s on Herald Square and the Times Square Sephora; this particular bottle is from a Penn Station Duane Reade. I don’t know why I remember this, but I do. I ran in to get a new powder compact and just grabbed whatever interesting things I saw on my way to the register. This polish was one of them! I got some GOSH polishes at the same time. And I didn’t miss my train!
I like this polish, and I liked the formula enough that I’d buy it again if it ever turned up in Florida. I admit that I don’t know much about this brand, and that’s kind of the whole reason I bought it, I just wanted things I wouldn’t normally find where I live. While I wouldn’t go out of my way to grab another bottle of Prevail, I’d totally get a few more if I had the opportunity. In the meantime, Sinful Colors is good enough for me.
Prevail, given that I’ve never seen it anywhere else, may be a Duane Reade exclusive brand. Check Duane Reades in New York to buy them.
I haven’t heard of this brand before. I love coral cremes though and this one is nice.
this is a delightful sherbet color! I’ve never seen the brand here in California…but I don’t know what Duane Reades is either.
I think it’s just a NYC thing!
I’d never heard of this brand before but this looks like a lovely creme!
What a beautiful, rich orange! Perfect for Summer.
What a perfect color for the warm weather! <3
Gorgeous swatch and polish. I too grabbed polish while I my last vacation and can relate to the sentiment!
I can’t help but buy a couple bottles everywhere I go. I seriously bought like thirty bottles of polish on that trip.
How have I not heard about this brand?! Gorgeous color and swatches!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
I’d never heard of it either until I bought this one!
Very pretty color that will be perfect for summer.
I’ve never heard of this brand but when I’m on the East Coast I’m going to have to make it a point to look in Duane Reades. I also love this color. I’m usually not a fan or orange based corals, but this is really catching my eye!
I love corals so much. They scream summer!
I’ve not heard of this brand before, but this sherbet color is fab! I’m all about oranges right now.
Very pretty – I love corally-oranges for summer!
I love tangerine polishes for the Summer. This is a lovely creme.
Hmmm…I never heard of this brand before either. The shade is gorgeous! I’ll have to see if I can find it the next time I’m in NYC.
Such a gorgeous shade!
