SWATCH OF THE WEEK VOL.5: NCLA NAIL LACQUERS IN AS IF, LIKE TOTALLY VALLEY GIRL & SANTA MONICA SHORE THING

Thursday, February 13, 2014

A while ago, I was contacted by the lovely Jennifer from Bollare who represent a bunch off really fabulous brands. She sent me a little beauty care package filled with some lovely goodies. Three pretty, pastel nail polishes from ncLA were a few off the items that were hiding in the box.

ncLA is a brand that is quite new to me. I have seen their nail polishes reviewed and swatched on different beauty blogs, but I have never actually tried them out for myself. So I thought I would swatch the three shades that I got for you today, and also share my opinion on them as well. Here we go! :-)

As If ($16.00 for 15ml/.5 fl. oz.) is a pretty pastel purple with a creamy finish. It's easy to apply. I did find it to be a little sheer on the first coat, but it didn't look streaky or patchy on my nails. It dries quickly, and it's fully opaque in two coats.

As If is similar to Little Girl Type by MAC, which is one off my favorite pastel purple nail polishes!

Like Totally Valley Girl ($16.00 for 15ml/.5 fl. oz.) is a light pink with a creamy finish. Like As If, the application was very easy and I didn't notice any streaking either. It's a little sheer on the first coat, but nothing too crazy. It's such a pretty and girly shade, which dries quickly and is fully opaque in three coats.

Santa Monica Shore Thing ($16.00 for 15ml/.5 fl. oz.) is a pretty light pastel green with a creamy finish. It's very thick, smooth and easy to apply. It's not sheer like As If and Like Totally Valley Girl, and it didn't go on looking streaky or patchy either. It dries quickly and it's completely opaque in two coats.

Overall, I really like all three shades here, but my favorite one is Santa Monica Shore Thing. I'm a big fan off those pastel blue/mint green shades, it's just something about those shades that draws my attention. Santa Monica Shore Thing is a real stunner, and I can't wait for spring and summer to arrive so I can wear it more often. You can check out the entire ncLA nail polish range HERE! :-)
