NCLA Summer of ’69 Collection Swatches & Review
Have you heard of NCLA yet? If not, here’s a little background.
NCLA Los Angeles is a small company that started with a line of nail wraps, but has now expanded into a line of nail lacquers. The lacquers are five free, meaning no DBP, Toulene, Formaldehyde or Camphor. And cruelty free!
They have a new collection this summer called Summer of ’69 that features three shades and I’ve got ‘em for ya today.
I’m With The Band
I’m With The Band is a super bright coral shimmer. This is a really beautiful saturated color. The shimmer is somewhat subtle but makes it a little more interesting than a plain creme, I think. The formula was on the thick side, but not unmanageable. Two coats is all you need.
Eight Days A Week
Eight Days A Week is a vivid cornflower blue creme. This hits just the right note between blue and lavender. One of my very favorite shades of anything on earth. The formula was a little tricky with this one for me. Was a bit thick and wanted to create small bubbles if I didn’t wait long enough between coats. I only needed two though for complete coverage.
Hello, I Love You!
Hello, I Love You! is a bright raspberry purple creme. This one is pretty sheer going on but after three coats mostly covers completely. This was the best formula of the three. Smooth, thin and easy to apply without thick areas or bubbling.
Overall: Of three three I tried, I really liked two of the shades (I’m With The Band and Eight Days A Week). But the best formula was the shade I didn’t love on me (Hello, I Love You!).
Availability: NCLA Shop and boutiques.
Pricing: $16.00 for .5 oz.
