I got my Priti NYC polishes in Dark Warrior Orchid and Californian Bluebell.
Californian Bluebell is a very beautiful shade of blue. It looks periwinkle at first, but is a tad darker than that. The best way to describe it - UCLA Blue.

Dark Warrior Orchid is another great shade, but very hard to describe. It's somewhere between Dark Olive Green and Field Drab.

When I first got these two polishes, I was speechless. They look so beautiful and they were exactly the colors I've wanted for a long time - dark cornflower blue and a real army/olive green. The thing I did not expect was the formula of these. They're quite watery (especially Dark Warrior Princess). I'm trying them again as I type this, so I can give them another chance - yeah, I REALLY want to like them.
I love almost everything about these Priti NYC polishes. The bottles are nice, the brush is flat, not too big nor too small, the formula is runny, but that's still better than goopy and thick. Both of these polishes apply really nicely, the only problem I have with them is opacity. I like to use thin coats of polish and the first time I applied Californian Bluebell, it bit me in the rear. I had to use 3 coats, but you must remember that every bald spot is much more visible under my lighting. As I tried this cornflower goodness again (now), I managed to get away with only 2 coats without bald spots. So there you go, it's enough opaque if you use 2 slightly thicker coats. And about Dark Warrior Orchid- that's a tough one because it's jelly. You can make it look somewhat presentable with 2 coats, but if you're like me, you're gonna need 3 coats. I don't like jelly polishes and I can't but be biased, but to tell you the truth - the combination of this color and jelly finish is amazing. You know what it reminds me of? Dead Marshes.
I have the whole 'dead people in the marshes' scene rolling in my head when I look at Dark Warrior Orchid. I know that might not be good for some people, but to be honest - you gotta be a little weird to wear this kind of shade on your nails anyways. And weird is good. =)
Priti NYC polishes go for $12.50 per bottle. You can see their range on Priti NYC website, where you can also buy them. Go take a look, they have a total of 125 beautiful shades, all from soft neutrals to edgy dark colors. My readers from Slovenia will probably be happy to learn they're also available in our country. You can buy them in the online store Darila Narave for €11.90 per bottle. Unfortunately they only carry 16 shades, but Dark Warrior Orchid IS one of them.
P.S: Have I mentioned they dry really fast and have the best glossy shine? No? Well, they do.
Have you tried Priti NYC polishes? What do you think of these?
