Birchbox Breakdown

We adore anything sprinkled with sugar: buttered toast, homemade scones, piping hot oatmeal. So we’re absolutely drooling over this confection-textured polish from ncLA, which dries to a matte finish that looks and feels like a dusting of sugar. Even better, it comes in several scrumptious shades—and is made without icky ingredients or animal testing.

How to Use

Prep nails with a base coat, then brush on at least two coats of color. Leave as is for a matte, sugary finish, or follow with a top coat to add smoothness and shine.

needs a topcoat
Purchased

This nail polish took me a bit to figure out. When I put it on my nails, it dried to a color that was quite different from the color in the bottle, through not necessarily a bad color (I ordered 'don't sugar coat it and it dried to a matte silver color with a slight purple hue). But then it started to flake off my nails just 8 hours after application. Not cool, especially from a $16 nail polish. The second time I used it, I made sure to apply a clear topcoat and what a difference it made! The color changed to that in the nail polish bottle and it stayed on my nails without flaking for a week! This is a beautiful nail polish if you use it with a topcoat, but a fairly crummy one if you go without the topcoat.

I don't understand the poor reviews of this product. This brand is stunning and Candy Coat is no exception. I have Cinnamon Girl and Mint Condition. The colors are vivid. C.G. is very orange and M.C is a lime green. The polish wears well, just wear a base coat.

YUCK!!!
Purchased

I love ncLA , and I have some other of their textured polishes, so I was really excited to try this polish with it's yummy description: confection-textured, dusting of sugar, etc.

Sadly, it is nothing like butter and sugar. It dries to a frosted mustard yellow. Very very 70's. Like the ugliest kitchen appliance ever. Hate.

I can't recommend this at all (note: I only can't recommend 'Butter Me Up'-- I heartily endorse most ncLA polishes). I guess if you live in Mystic Falls and are going to a 70's decade dance you might use it, otherwise...gross.
