Dashing Diva is celebrating 2009 by honoring the city that never sleeps, which happens to be the place where they opened their first nail spa – New York City! Dashing Diva is introducing a new collection this year called the Manhattan Collection. Each color in the Manhattan Collection is inspired by different places and aspects of New York. The first 4 shades that they’re releasing as a sneak peek are, from left to right:
- The Red Carpet: a classic, true red
- East Village: a chocolatey glaze
- NYPD Blue: dark, dark navy blue
- Central Park After Dark: plum with light burgundy tones
I got the chance to sample each shade except for Central Park After Dark, and I was duly impressed with all. East Village is a pretty brown that is a distinct chocolate shade, and the Red Carpet is a gorgeous, sexy bright red. My favorite is NYPD Blue, which really retains its true navy shade without veering to blue-black. Read more about everything Dashing Diva at dashingdiva.com!
