You know what would be great this summer? Eating bananas, banana splits, banana smoothies, banana milkshakes, even banana flavoured ice cream, all through the summer, but if you can't do that, I'd say wearing it would be almost as good! So, even if wearing this bright , 'banana-ry' colour does make you hungry, if you like super bright colours, this is worth it!

N.Y.C Color Banana Split Ingredients
Sadly, the silly N.Y.C Color people have decided to write their ingredients out, in white, on a light coloured polish, which makes it very hard to read and even harder to take photos of!

N.Y.C Color Review:
This colour is, such a bright yellow, and as the name suggests, it actually reminds me of a banana! At first , I really liked this colour, but when I put it on my nails, especially my toes, it made my skin look a lots darker, than it usually is. On camera, it looks quite a bit darker than it actually is, but with your own eye, its a lot darker.
Last night was my Dad's graduation party, so we had tonnes of people there, but I remember getting a comment from one lady who said that I was brave to wear such a bright colour!
I dont think if I was looking for a new colour, that I would of bought this one, unless I really needed it for a manicure, because I already have two other yellows, and dont really think I needed one this shade, and it also doesn't really go with any of my clothes.
In the bottle, it really doesn't stand out that much!
I wasn't really that impressed by the finish, its just as creme finish. But I was impressed that the colour was EXACTLY the same as the bottle colour.
Application and Formula
The formula for this polish is alright, a bit thick and gloopy though, so its a little hard to get a good smooth coat. Its definitely a two coat polish, you could maybe do a three, but I think that would just add to the thickness on your nail. Looking at it now, after the third day, it looks a little streaky still and bits have chipped off. I have only two perfect nails left, as i've taken all the chipped ones off. But you don't know, that could just be my topcoat. So i'm planning to try this polish with another top coat, to see how that works.
I think this colour would be pretty easy to find, I've found the N.Y.C brand in so many places, even a BP Petrol Station! But I haven't actually been looking for this exact colour, so I don't know if that would be as easy, but the brand is defiantly everywhere, from about $1 - $2.50 at the maximum.
- Its VERY cheap
- Its easy to find
- Long-ish Drying time
6/10: I think this is an alright colour, if you dont mind waiting for it to dry a while, but you know, I'm a little impatient, so the colours I usually use are the quick drying ones, so its just a little different for me.
It might be worth trying this colour, especially if like like bright uncommon ones, that are super cheap! Let me just say, this is the best 'cheap' colour i've had, if that makes sense!

*Also, I'm thinking, if you guys would like, I was thinking about doing a video review of my next colour, which I think would be fun, and also interesting for you. So comment to me if you think this is a good idea. I would be doing it on my youtube channel ninahollyd.
