NOTD: NCLA Let's Stay Forever



For today's nails I decided to try out NCLA nail polish for the first time. They're a "5 free" brand and this one is called "Let's Stay Forever" which is a pale/pastel sky blue shade. I really thought I was going to love this colour, but since I put it on I just don't feel like it suits me! Plus I don't think any of my clothes seem to go with this shade weirdly enough! I think this would look amazing with more tanned skin tones though!

The formula is quite runny which I find makes it more difficult to apply and it takes 3 coats to get fully opaque. It does dry quite quickly though, leaving a nice smooth finish. This shade is similar to Zoya's Blu, but I actually prefer Zoya's as it is slightly paler, more cool-toned and the formula seems to work much better for me.

Even though I didn't get on with this particular nail polish as well as I'd hoped, I'm still keen to try some other shades from the brand to see how they compare (although they're not so easy to get hold of in the UK - I got this shade in June's Petit Vour box). NCLA also have some pretty cool looking nail wraps that I've been eyeing up for a while too - probably not for everyone but I love the look of these galaxy print wraps for something a bit different!

What do you think of "Let's Stay Forever"? Do you think this shade would suit you better?!

  6. I actually really like this colour! I've never tried NCLA, not sure that I will after hearing about the not so great formulation. Such a shame! I'll definitely stick to Zoya and Priti NYC. x
