It’s no secret that I love NCLA polishes. They are always coming out with new collections in some of the cutest colors! Recently, they released the Candy Coat collection. These textured polishes dry matte for a unique finish. I received the collection for review and am very excited to share my thoughts with you.
Claims: “Flaunt it with this shimmering green nail lacquer with a perfect sugar-encrusted texture.”
Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Nitrocellulose, Triphenyl Phosphate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Diacetone Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, Benzophenone-1, SD Alcohol 40-B (Alcohol Denat.), Acrylates Copolymer, Silica, May Contain (+/-):, Bismuth Oxychloride, Oxides, Blue 1, Aluminum Powder, Red 34, Red 6, Red 7, Yellow 5 Lake, Iron Oxides, Violet 2, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Isobutylphenoxy Epoxy Resin
Pros: DBP free. Toluene free. Camphor free. Formaldehyde free. Cruelty free and vegan. Wears well without a topcoat. You can make it shiny with a top coat if you don’t want to wear it matte. Very pigmented shade. Very matte finish.
Cons: Mint Condition is more sheer than I was expecting. Seen in the pictures here are two coats. I personally liked the color, but others may need to apply a third coat to get a shade that matches that in the bottle.
The Verdict: I have to admit, I was skeptical about Mint Condition. It’s more of a toned down green apple shade instead of a mint shade. I love pastels, but wasn’t sure what to expect here. I ended up actually really liking it! Like the other shades in the Candy Coat collection, it wore well and took several days before any chipping occurred.
