I subscribe to a monthly vegan beauty box and last month I received this nail polish from NCLA Los Angeles. All of their nail products are 5 free….meaning they do not contain DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, and camphor. They do not test on animals.
This is my first time using NCLA color and I was very excited to try it out. The color is described on the NCLA website as a light mint cream; in the online picture it looks like a mint cream. In person, the color is more medium mint leaning towards tiffany blue. It is not light mint.
Santa Monica Shore Thing is a creme formula. It takes 2 coats in order to get an even application. I applied a thin first coat and kinda got upset at how streaky it looked. I waited 5 minutes and applied a really thick second coat. I waited another 5 minutes and applied a top coat. Even though I applied a thick second coat, I found that the polish dried quickly….. this made me very happy 🙂 The brush is nice and thick and covered my entire nail in 1 swipe.
NCLA nail polish costs $16. If you join their mailing list they will give you 15% off your first order. I will be shopping with NCLA!! They also have cool nail wraps online. I’m gonna check those out too.
