ncLA North of Sunset is a new fall 2013 collection that features four nail shades.
In case you didn’t know much about the brand, this is a Los Angeles based company. They are made in the US, five-free and now have about 30-35 nail shades. While they are on the higher spectrum in terms of cost, they have a pretty good formula and some gorgeous shades.
This collection features two cremes and two shimmery glitters. The names scream L.A. to me! 🙂
The Spa Comes To Me! is a medium sage green creme. A pretty, relaxing, subdued green, she is. It starts off a bit thin and sheer but after three thin coats I got complete coverage.
Laurel Canyon Lolita is a medium purple/pink creme. They call it a grown-up fuchsia, which seems kind of accurate. It had a really nice formula and wasn’t too sheer, so I only needed two coats.
Dead-End Gorgeous is a purple and blue glitter. It’s very dark, blackened on the edges but also super sparkly. It does dry matte so I am showing it with a top coat. Very pretty shade and just two coats.
My Dad Invented That has a black base and is packed with silver and gold micro-glitter as well as blue, orange, pink, yellow and green small glitter pieces. I got really good coverage with this one with just two thin coats.
Overall: The one complaint I have with ncLA lacquers is the cap. It’s square, so holding it can sometimes be awkward. But as far as formula, these were all pretty nice and most covered in just two coats. I like The Spa Comes To Me! but don’t think it’s unique. Dead-End Gorgeous and My Dad Invented That are really great shades though, and so sparkly!
Pricing: $16.00 for .5 oz.
