NCLA My Dad Invented That Review
The shade My Dad Invented that from NCLA can best be described as a galaxy in a bottle. I’m typically not a huge fan of glitter based nail polishes. Yet this one was so pretty! Any long-time reader knows that I’m a huge fan of NCLA polishes. NCLA was kind enough to send me their North of Sunset collection to review, so expect more reviews coming soon!
Claims: “Our luxurious NCLA formula is high shine, quick dry and chip resistant. Flat brush allows for a perfectly smooth application.”

Pros: DBP free. Toluene free. Camphor free. Formaldehyde free. Wears well. Cruelty free and vegan. One coat provides full color coverage – no second coat needed.
The Verdict: I loved this polish! The dark grey base of My Dad Invented that is pretty and edgy. The glitter in the polish comes in multiple shades and sizes. This gives it a really pretty galaxy effect – even after just one coat. Glitter polishes often have a reputation for wearing better that regular shades and this is no exception to that rule. Just one coat wore several days, without a top coat, before it began to chip.

I am not really a glitter nail polish type of person either but this one is very pretty and the name ‘My Dad Invented That’ makes me laugh!
Are you wearing one or two coats in the picture?
The pictures are two coats. This one is very pigmented though. I think you could easily get away with wearing just a single coat.
Wow, that’s gorgeous.
