I absolutely love their Fashion Queen collection that is out right now (which included NY Princess and Blue Majesty). And while I am not affRED is entirely different from those polishes it is no less impressive.
I am not affRED is from NYC’s Halloween themed Midnight Beauty collection though it is not just perfect for Halloween! I am not affRED is a deep, burgundy red creme. The formula has a bit of a jelly feel to it so, as much as I hate the word, it is a crelly (shudder).
This polish is absolutely gorgeous and a dead on dupe for essie Wicked; formula and all. I used three coats in my swatches.
So, if you don’t have essie Wicked in your collection run, do not walk, to your nearest Rite Aid or CVS and get your hands on I am not affRED. The $1.99 price tag is quite the deal for such a classic color.
While this polish is gorgeous on its own, I did want to spice it up for a night out so I added a coat of Sally Hansen Big Glitter Top Coat in Dressed to Thrill. The result was fantastic.
Under the jump you’ll find swatches of I am not affRED as well as my manicure with Dressed to Thrill.
