NYC’s Plaza Plumberry is a vampy purple. If I have trouble with a polish, I don’t clean it up because I want to show the actual results. This color was extremely blotchy and hard to apply evenly. I think it has a little to do with the long brush. But it’s formula just plain sucks. The first and second coats were so blotchy that I wanted to give up. Even with the third coat, there was balding and unevenness. I have never had an issue with their polish, but this color is getting the boot.
