NCLA Runway Collection Swatches and Review

Hi guys, I'm so excited to share with you the recent Runway Collection from NCLA. I've always drooled over the gorgeous creams that NCLA comes out with - I love a good, high quality salon brand - so I am thrilled to be reviewing some for you today.


This collection is just perfect for fall! It consists of three gorgeous creams (that happen to look beautiful together!), all with lovely formulas. I also got to try out NCLA Gloss It! which is a base/top coat - I used it for all the swatches below.


Call My Agent is a gorgeous cherry red cream. What a classic shade of red! And perfect for fall - for some reason, I always want to rock red nail polish in the fall, it feels so chic! Anyway, the formula was wonderful and you're looking at two coats with top coat.


Catwalk Queen is a warm vanilla cream with yellow undertones. I was so excited about this polish, because it's a perfect base for nail art! (I have to do nail art using all three of these colors together, since they match so perfectly!) The formula on this one is a tad thick, but that's not unusual for such a light color. Shown above is two coats plus top coat.


And finally, we have Model Behavior, a rich dark brown cream with purple undertones. This is such a gorgeous color, and even though I've got a fair amount of brown creams now, I have nothing like this one! It looks to me like the color of a Hershey's bar, not quite brown but not quite purple. I love it! Shown above is two coats with top coat.

My first experience with NCLA? Definitely a pleasant one! I was a tiny bit disappointed with the thickness of Catwalk Queen, but like I said, it's not unusual for lighter colors to be thicker. The base/top coat worked really nicely, and it dried pretty quick to leave a glossy shine. And let's not forget how insanely pretty these three colors are!

These polishes can be purchased from NCLA for $16 USD per bottle, and Gloss It! base/top coat is available here for $11 USD. International readers, you can purchase NCLA from retailer Live Love Polish, and use the discount code INEEDMORENAILPOLISH for 10% off your entire order.

Have you ever tried NCLA? What is your experience with them?
