I’m always on the lookout to try out new nail polishes – ever since I was lucky enough to successfully (!) grow out my nails, I’ve been hoarding polish like nobody’s business! I have a bevy of different colours from a bevy of different brands, but I had yet to try out NCLA’s lacquers.
When Elaine asked me to review them, I jumped at the chance! Come read what my thoughts are on these deliciously named lacquers.
I had the opportunity to try out two different colours – Sugar Fix (an amazingly glittery blue & red polish with a grey undertone), and Not So Sweet (a super sweet cotton candy pink shade).
There seems to be a craze lately with naming polishes after ‘baked goods’ – these two colours are no exception! With the sugary sweet pink and a burst of candy colours, these colours are aptly named.
The Not So Sweet colour is delectably pink – a sure Cotton Candy shade that must be immensely popular at Easter time. Sugar Fix is great for a glitter based nail colour, considering there is a grey undertone to the polish, rather then clear polish with glitter bursts. You’ll need two coats for either polish, as just one coat will leave the nail shining through. Longevity? The polish lasts the same length of time as any normal polish, and it chips accordingly! The ONLY issue I had? The glittery Sugar Fix polish has glitter bursts that doesn’t apply as well – sometimes the glitter bursts were hard to come by.
The big decision maker for me, and the reason why I would recommend these polishes, is the 5-Free formula. Any formula that promotes the health of its users and eliminates toxins from the body is a win for me.
Summary: A good polish that eliminates toxins? May be worth the extra price tag!
