NCLA From Dusk Till Dawn Collection for Fall 2012 Swatches and Review!

Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Monday and L'Shana Tova to my fellow Jewish readers!  Today, I have the gorgeous new Fall collection from NCLA.  I was first introduced to this brand earlier this summer when I reviewed their gorgeous Summer of '69 Collection.  Now I have a bunch of their polishes and nail wraps through Little Black Bag and they are amazing!  I actually saw this collection while in Las Vegas for Cosmoprof and was super excited for it so now, without further ado, on to the polish!

Above:  2 coats of Call Me For The After Party

Call Me For The After Party is a gorgeous midnight blue shimmer.  In the bottle, the shimmer looks silver so I was a bit worried that it would be streaky on the nail but it's not, just simply gorgeous!  I love rich jewel tones for fall!  The formula was great, opaque in two coats and very pigmented.

 Above:  2 coats of Dirty Martini

I love the name of this polish!  It truly is an olive green so Dirty Martini fits it so well.  Unfortunately, I can't pull off shades like this with my skin tone at all.  However the formula was good, opaque in two coats and easy to use.

Above:  2 coats of Rock Solid

Rock Solid is really a special polish and the one I was most excited for in this collection!  Rock Solid is a gorgeous medium grey that's packed with silver micro glitter.  It's beautiful!  I love that it's an opaque cream and not a jelly however because of that, the formula is very thick.  I didn't wait long enough between coats so I had some dragging so if you pick this one up, give it a few minutes of dry time between coats!

Above:  2 coats of Without Me There is No VIP!

Without Me There is No VIP is a gorgeous deep berry red that has tiny multi colored glitter in it!  I love that the glitter is kind of hidden and really pops in direct light.  I love how vibrant this shade is!  The formula is a tad thick so be sure you wait a few minutes between coats!

All in all, this is a beautiful collection for Fall.  I love the mix of cream, shimmer and glitter and the variety of shades is great.  A couple of the colors are a bit thick so just take your time when applying these!  Rock Solid is hands down my favorite and I can't wait to keep wearing it this Fall!  This collection is now available at for $16 a piece!

What did you think of these polishes? Any must haves? Any dupes?

  1. I really like the blue polish! The price really deters me, though.

  2. Without Me There's no VIP is a gorgeous vampy shade.
