*Phew*! That’s a mouthful, isn’t it? Good morning, you wonderful readers. As the title of this post states, I have 5 simple nail art manicures that I created with the NYC New York Color City Samba collection (reviewed here). Let’s get right to it!
First up is a simple gradient with NYC New York Color Sweet Melon and Tropicoral. I first painted my nails with Sweet Melon, let dry, then painted a small, porous, flat sponge with Sweet Melon and Tropicoral and applied it on my nails.
Next is diagonal stripes with NYC New York Color Tropicoral and Jacaranda Flower. Again, I started off with Tropicoral on all my nails. I waited for that to thoroughly dry before applying cut up chevron strips from Nail Vinyls to each nail. Then I applied a thick coat of Jacaranda Flower and quickly pulled off the strips.
NYC New York Color Jacaranda Flower and Amazon Green are next! I started off with Jacaranda Flower on all my nails. Then using the straw technique (tutorial here), I applied Amazon Green. I did not use top coat for this manicure.
Next is NYC New York Color Amazon Green and Palm on the Beach. Amazon Green is the base color, and I used the saran wrap technique to apply Palm on the Beach.
Lastly is a dotticure with NYC New York Color Palm on the Beach and Sweet Melon. The base is Palm on the Beach, and I’ve used a toothpick dipped in Sweet Melon to create the misshapen dots.
I hope you enjoy all 5 of these simple manicures! My favorite is probably the gradient, but I want to hear which of these is your favorite! Let me know in the comments. 🙂 Until tomorrow,

I love all 5 of these!! I picked up mine yesterday and was in awe at the whole collection! They are so pretty!!! Who would have thought something so cute can come from a straw?!
Right? I love when I can make something work. 🙂
Love all the looks, but the ombre is simply perfect! Need to try out the straw technique.
It is super easy to do! 🙂 Thanks Renu!
Pretty pretty pretty! All those manis are very pretty!
Thanks so much! 🙂
I love these manis!! I really like the one with the circles, looks like that glass that was left on the coffee table!
Oh, I never thought about it like that! Thanks Leigh Anne!
My fave is the saran wrap one, although all are good and simple ones 🙂
Saran wrap is my second favorite kind of mani to do (after dotticures). They just look complicated without too much fuss. 🙂
Beauitful! Love the one that had the slash marks on the sides!
Thanks Laura! That’s a fun one to do when you really want to make a statement without being “too much”, if you know what I mean. 🙂
Lovely manicures you got with those NYC colors!
Thanks so much, I’m glad you like them!
