NCLA Sugar Fix Review

NCLA Sugar Fix Review

Normally I love bright and pastel polishes in the summer, but there’s also something great about shades of grey. They never go out of season or out of style. Especially when pumped up with a bit of bold color! NCLA sent me their Sweet Revenge collection to review. I’ve already tried and reviewed a few sets of their awesome nail wraps, so I was very excited to try out the new shades in the Sweet Revenge collection! The collection contains three shades – Mostly Sunny With a Chance of Sprinkles, Sugar Fix and Not So Sweet.

This shade, Sugar Fix, is light grey with fuschia and electric blue glitter.

Claims: “Our luxurious NCLA formula is high shine, quick dry and chip reisistant. Flat brush allows for a perfectly smooth application.”

Ingredients: On product packaging, not available online.

Pros: DBP free. Toluene free. Camphor free. Formaldehyde free. Goes on smoothly. Build-able, sheer color.

Cons: The color is sheer, which makes for quick drying time but may require more coats depending on your shade preference.

The Verdict: I liked this polish a lot. The color being sheer is great because you can make it as light or dark of a shade as you want. Pictured above is two coats. This also makes it great to layer with other polishes for a unique look or different color. It went on very smoothly, dried fast, and wore well. The glitter didn’t seem to impact the formula and it has the same great NCLA polish formula I have tried before.

If you’re a fan of glitter shades, this is a great neutral to pick up. It’s perfect year round!

What Makes Nail Polish Vegan?

What Makes Nail Polish Vegan?

When it comes to picking out vegan makeup products, finding out what’s vegan and what’s not can be a task. One of my main goals with my lifestyle is to use animal friendly items without having to sacrifice anything about my lifestyle. Using Logical Harmony, I want to show that you can do the same too. I want my pastels, burgundy, a shade of cappuccino, polish for the perfect French manicure and pink glitter nail polish too.

I have had a really hard time finding vegan foundation that fits my standards but a surprisingly easy time finding vegan nail polish. When I find myself posting on Twitter or talking in everyday conversations about vegan nail polish, I almost always get asked, “aren’t all nail polishes vegan?”. The answer is no. A lot of companies test on animals and a lot contain animal ingredients. In this post I’ll help explain What Makes Nail Polish Vegan.

Update – Logical Harmony now provides you with a Vegan Nail Polish Brand List so that you can be sure you are buying animal friendly nail polish. This list will be updated as I find out about more vegan nail polish brands.
