NCLA Swatch Spam

Hi guys! Today I have a few polishes from NCLA to share with you. These are a mix of polishes from their Holos collection along with a couple collaboration shades. These are available now over at Color4Nails, you can use to code PolishAh10 for 10% off your order if there are any of these you end up wanting! Check out the swatches after the jump!

Cloudy Sky is a light blue with a very subtle holo. I believe this is a collaboration with Lakodom based on the bottle but not 100% sure since the NCLA site didn't really say anything about it lol. The formula was difficult, I found it to be very thin and hard to control. It was streaky on the first coat but evened out nicely. I used 3 coats for full opacity.

Gravitate Towards Me is a purpley brown holo. The holo is nice and strong in this one, in person it was more linear looking...not sure why my camera had a hard time with that. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Red Square is a red with a subtle holo. This is another Lakodom collaboration shade. The holo was more noticeable in person but not over the top. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Snow Frost is a white jelly-ish base with white and silver glitter. This one is also a collaboration with Lakodom. The formula was ok on this one, it was on the thick side but I didn't have any issues with application. Its one I would recommend being patient with though. The opacity was pretty great, much better than I expected. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

The World Orbits Around Me is a brown holo. This is similar to Gravitate Towards Me but its more noticeably brown. I put the 2 polishes next to each other in collage at the beginning of the post so you can see a little better how they compare. The formula was good, it was a good consistency and applied nicely. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Wandering Stars is a dark blue holo. This almost looks black but I promise its just a really deep navy. This is a collaboration with Pshiiit. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
