NYC Wing It Wine Creme~A 94¢ Duo Chrome?

Above & Below: Is it just me, or does this seem to be a slight duo chrome finish? NYC's Wing It Wine Creme appears to change from a light burgundy to a mauve, to a carnation pink shimmer, depending on the lighting. The finish not only changes color (rose to gold), but also changes from a metallic/foil to a shimmer.
Could it be? A duo chrome from NYC? I would have to say that it is, although it's certainly not as strong of a duo chrome as other polishes, but it's still a little entertaining! This shade is called Wing It Wine Creme, although I'm not sure where the 'creme' comes into play. I picked this up a while back at Target for just 94¢, along with some other shades in this line for the same price. It's definitely not a creme, but a shimmer with a smooth almost metallic or foil finish. In normal lighting/low lighting, it looks like a light burgundy shimmer with hints of mauve. Once it gets under brighter lighting, it flashes rose to gold. I think for the price, plus the entertainment value it provided me while viewing it under different lighting, was worth it. Clearly, I need to find another form of entertainment!


  1. Ooo, that does look duochromey! I love it!

  2. It does! I've got Purple Pizazz and I swear that definitely has duochrome tendancies too, it's also in my top twenty :D

  3. This is GORGEOUS!! what a steal!!

  4. Ohh how I love duochrome. Nina Ultra Pro has a few, I have Molten Gold and it's pretty and not too expensive, especially for the quality. Love Nina.

  5. Weird, I have the same polish, but it definitely doesn't look like that -- just a slightly shimmery wine red. Maybe the formula has changed? If so, I need to get another bottle, because it looks gorgeous on your nails!


  6. Really pretty!
    I'm going to be on the lookout for this one.

  7. What a sweet color and it's just can't help but love it!

  8. Great price, duochrome and pretty to boot! Looks lovely on you. Polish is greatly entertaining. All the nice time acquiring, applying and admiring the polish. We're all just special people for this type of entertainment.

  9. gildedangel~I really like the color change, subtle, but very pretty.

    Small Town Gal~I think I have that in my untried's, I'll have to check it out!

    Brooke~NYC makes some pretty shades...not always the best formula, but they work fine with a good base/top coat.

    Danica~I thought I had that Nina polish, but I can't seem to find it! They do make a nice polish, I agree.

    Liz~thank you :)

    pamk~you know, when I saw this a while back, I thought it was new, because I'd never seen it before. But I'm not so sure of that, so yes, maybe yours is an older version?

    ainos2~I was surprised by this one. I didn't realize it would be so pretty!

    Evil Angel~I know, isn't it great?!!

    Lucy~we're special or we're just plain odd, but at least we found something to make us happy :)

  10. I just found out that this shade is discontinued :(

  11. Susalie~oh no! I'll keep my eyes open for it and let you know if I come across one :)
