Nicka K Nail polishes available from Beauty Crowd

I love nail polishes, I am always looking out for new brands to try. I was really happy when Beauty Crowd gave me the opportunity to try out and swatch 3 nail polishes from Nicka K.

For those who have not heard of Beauty Crowd, they sell a variety of beauty, make up and bath products from around the world, this is great if your are looking to try a new product that you would not necessarily find on the high street! Nicka K is one of the brands featured on Beauty Crowd's website, they are a brand founded in New York in 1995 with a large variety of make up and hair products at affordable prices. The first thing that struck me about the nail varnishes are the bottles. I love the shape of the bottle and the lid as well as the colour of the lid which is rose gold in colour.

The shades I was sent are NY 120 - Silver Star, NY 141 - Royal Fuschia and NY 135 - Tangerine. My favourite is Royal Fuschia, a lovely rich purple/red colour. Silver Star I have used with a nail art brush and find it is great for detail and Tangerine is a bright orange which is great for the summer months.

I used 2 coats of each nail varnish as well as a base coat and a top coat. I found the nail varnishes glide onto my nails without creating streaks, even the silver, which I was very impressed with. All 3 nail varnishes are very pigmented and shimmery but without the big pieces of glitter that are a nightmare to remove. I found all 3 nail varnishes easy to remove with some nail varnish remover that cost me £1 and some cotton pads. I wore each nail polish for 3 days, then took photos of my nails, there is very little wear.

59 shades are available to buy on the Beauty Crowd website and retail at £4.95 each for 15ml of product. I think it is really good value for money for a nail varnish that is  in a lovely bottle, the formula is highly pigmented and does not chip easily. Have you heard of Beauty Crowd or Nicka K?


These nail polishes were sent to me to review free of charge, however the opinions expressed are my own.
