NYC Copabanana

NYC New York Color Copabanana COVERI will never get over the name of this polish. Seriously, how cute and clever is Copabanana!?

Anyway. Copabanana is from the Summer 2014 NYC New York Color City Samba collection. The collection was inspired by Brazil and Copabanana fits that theme.

Copabanana is a bright yellow with subtle shimmer. The color is vibrant and the shimmer is absolutely lovely. And despite this being a yellow polish, the formula is wonderful. I used just two coats in my swatches.

As with the vast majority of yellow polishes this color doesn’t look great on me, but I had fun wearing it anyway! And Copabanana is a perfect sunny yellow for this time of year.

The City Samba collection is currently available at Rite Aid (the display is super cute) and NYC In a New York Minute polishes retail for $1.99.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump. The shimmer is lovely :)
