NCLA Los Angeles Nail Polish in Santa Monica Shore Thing

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.

IMG_6435 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.

Stay Gorgeous
