NCLA: The Cremes
Hey everyone! Today I have some creme polishes from NCLA to show you!
First up is “Downtown Dollface” a gray creme that is such a light shade that you almost think it’s white at first glance. It’s like off white with an edge. The formula was excellent for a shade like this. 2 coats for full opacity and no streakiness!
“Dirty Martini” is a color I was swooning over from the first second I laid eyes on it. I love colors like this. Like mashed up peas or your grandma’s avocado green Whitehall glassware she’s had since the 70’s. It’s one of those awesome, pretty-ugly colors. Adore this! 2 buttery coats.
“Eight Days A Week” is a periwinkle creme that leans more toward blue than purple. I was very impressed by the formula the first time I wore this. It’s not chalky or streaky like some shades similar to this can be. 2 easy coats.
“Like… Totally Valley Girl” is a bubble gum pink creme. As a child of the 90’s, how can you not like a polish with a name like that? I used 2 thin coats here and you can still see a bit of patchiness, I would recommend 3 coats or 2 thick coats to even it all out.
“Mulholland Maneater” is a dark blurple that is more blue than it is purple on me. So moody and dark without looking black. Very glossy! 2 coats.
“Pick Me Up At Melrose Place” is an intensely hued purple creme that is bright without being neon. Another one with an impeccable formula! 2 coats.
“Rodeo Drive Royalty” is a perfect blood red. This is SUPER pigmented so watch out for a bit of staining if you get any on your skin. This was just a bit on the thin side so it ran into my cuticles a smidge, but if you use thin coats rather than thick ones, you should be just fine. 2 coats.
“Venice Beach Vixen” is quite possibly one of my favorite blues and that is saying a lot since I have a TON of blues in my stash. So creamy and the shade of blue is just perfect. I used this for my Mario Manicure for Halloween and I only used 1 COAT for it. It was just amazingly perfect. I can’t rave enough about this one. I used 2 coats here.
