To be quite frank, I have never heard of the nail polish brand NCLA Los Angeles before until I was invited to the launch here in Manila!

So, who is NCLA? NCLA creatively innovate products that combine fashion and beauty and never forget where they come from. Sunny Southern California! Their true essence — what and how they create things, the moments that truly inspire them — are deeply embedded in their DNA. It is their passion and their common love for the same things.

Their goal is to create luxury nail products by effortlessly combining their love for everything fashion and beauty. So you can enjoy a little California on your fingertips. No matter where!

It was my first time at Nail & Co. at BGC, or any branch for that matter, and I thought that the place was really cozy. It was set up and decorated for the NCLA launch and I just loved how colorful everything was.

NCLA's line of nail fashion products is the innovative expression of what they consider important: 
  • ACHIEVING THE PERFECT LOOK THAT SUBTLY IMPRESSES. 
  • INSPIRING INNOVATION THROUGH FASHION FORWARD DESIGN. 
  • DELIVERING SUPERIOR QUALITY THAT STANDS FAR ABOVE THE REST.
I loved the whole "California-feel" of the set up, with the song "California Gurls" song by Katy Perry playing on repeat in my head.

So what inspires NCLA when they create their products? They recognize the value of exceptional products, creativity and individuality. As such, their mission is to create nail fashion products that lead their industry. They generate ideas from their surroundings, love for fashion and beauty and
the irrepressible drive for constant improvement.

The results are exceptional visuals and superlative products they unconditionally believe in. They live NCLA. Every day!
I was delighted to learn that NCLA has a lot of colors available already. Some brands only carry a few colors at the launch but with NCLA, we had so much to choose from to try!
Nail & Co. is located at the second floor of Kensington Place at Burgos Circle. It's a little hard to find but it's all worth it when you do get there. It's like an oasis! It took me a while to find the street and building where Nail & Co. was located.
There was a vegetarian buffet set up for us, and I never thought I would enjoy vegetarian food that much but I actually did! Very tasty! Oooh, specially that vegetarian spring roll over there...
This wonderful event and setup was organized by my friend Dara David-Roa of CollabContessa. Here I am with the lovely Dara.
 Here is Julia Arenas of Bless My Bag enjoying her mani pedi with a foot spa!
The product that intrigued me the most from the NCLA nail line are the Nail Wraps! I love the designs... Complicated and colorful designs are available! Yes, I said complicated -I don't know how else to describe them... I guess Intricate is the more appropriate term.
As they fly beauty and fashion in their banner, collaborations come natural to them. As such, they have done quite a few already! Check them out! Drool worthy nail wraps! Luuuurve!
Their nail wraps are:
  • ULTRA THIN AND EXTREMELY LONG LASTING
  • RUNWAY INSPIRED DESIGNS THAT DRESS UP ANY LOOK 
  • EASY APPLICATION WITHOUT ANY HEAT SOURCE 
  • SUPERIOR QUALITY AND PATENT PENDING TECHNOLOGY 
But instead of going for the wraps, I decided to go for a simple mani pedi because I wanted to apply the nail wraps on my own at home so that I can test how easy they really are to apply. Hahaha! #kikayproblems
Here is Sharan Balani, the man who is responsible for bringing NCLA to us here in Manila! Sharan talks about NCLA in a casual and in a comfy way. We were very comfortable while he talked about the brand and the star products which are the nail lacquers:

Their nail lacquers are entirely unique, high-fashion head turners! All of their colors are '5 FREE' (No toxins such as DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor, and not tested on animals) -This is the kind of thing every pregnant woman wants to hear!

The luxurious NCLA formula is high shine, quick dry and chip resistant. Their dupont flat brush allows for an easy, perfectly smooth application too! Combined with "Gloss It" base and "Flawless Top Coat", they deliver a chip-free manicure (and pedicure!)

Their color range is a constant evolution, expansion, revolution -they set the trend! Oh yes, they do! And not to mention, their nail products are 100% made in LA with the highest quality ingredients.

We pass around his iPad where the information on the brand is. We were able to browse through different designs that are available for sale, and other nail polish colors and nail wraps that will be available soon!
Here are some more photos from the event! We really had a fabulous time! It was such a laid back event and come on, who doesn't love having their nails done?

Hope you enjoy these photos!
Here's Shen of Shen's Addiction enjoying her pampering! Always nice to see you Shen!
After our foot spa and mani pedi, we are presented with our personalized nail kit with our initials printed on them! I love how personalized their gift is!
