NCLA Nail Polish in Bel Air Trophy Wife - Review, Pictures, Swatches

image from http://www.shopncla.com

I had a very, very dear reader and fellow nail polish addict send me the most lovely care package all the way from SOUTH DAKOTA!  In this package she included several bottles of nail polish, one of them being a nail polish that I have lusted after for a long time. NCLA Bel Air Trophy Wife.  I have been on a gold nail polish kick for quite a while now, and NCLA Bel Air Trophy Wife was going to be the crowning jewel to my collection.  Now, understand that this dear friend lives all the way in South Dakota.  I mean, what's in South Dakota other then a frozen tundra?  I felt I had to explain the origins of this nail polish to her.  My conversation went something like this.

*all names and locations have been changed to protect the infuriated



Pink:
(shouting) 
Thank You So Much For The Great Nail Polish!  I Really Appreciate It, You Betcha!

Sally:
(confused)
Um, why are you shouting?  You're welcome....did you just say "you betcha"?



Pink:
You're darned tootin'! I just wanted to thank you very much. The nail polish by NCLA is the perfect gold I have been looking for.  I bet you had to trek though the entire Theodore Roosevelt National Park just to find one.

Sally:
(slightly annoyed) 
Um....  Yeah. The NCLA I purchased on line and the Theodore Roosevelt National Park is in North Dakota. I'm in South Dakota. Totally different state.

Pink:  
Oh, jeez!   My mistake.  I bet the Vikings will win the big one this year!  Of course it's going to be hard rootin for them while I paint my nails with the NCLA Bel Air Trophy Wife nail polish.  Not that the nail polish is hard to use or anything. It's actually a breeze. It apples smoothly, dries quickly (for a frosty metallic) and two coats is all I need for a perfect opaque finish. Don't ya think?

Sally:
(Incredulous) 
Don't I think what?  And The Vikings are in Minnesota not SOUTH DAKOTA.  You know, where I live!


Pink:
Yah, real good now.  Gotta love The gold color.  I bet you are more partial to blue since, you know, Paul Bunyan Land is right over in Brainerd!

Sally:
(Becoming annoyed)
Brainerd is in Minnesota!  Paul Bunyon is a Minnesota thing. I'm in S-O-U-T-H Dakota! I like blue, I like purple, I like gold. It makes no difference where I live!

Pink:
The heck do ya mean?  You don't believe in Paul Bunyon?  Next think you'll be telling me that you don't believe the Lewis & Clark Trail runs through your state!  But seriously. I love this nail polish. It wear like iron (with a base and top coat) and looks so rich!

Sally:
(Starting to fume)
Lewis & Clark Trail is in South Dakota but it's also in North Dakota. For crying out loud. I live in South Dakota. It's an entirely different state. Different culture, different history! Ugh!

Pink:
Well I'll tell ya. You got a heckuva deal on the polishes from NCLA. I know the regularly retail for $16 but you used some special code from Lucky Magazine and got a discount. Too bad it is expired. 

Sally:
(Exasperated to the point of madness)
Did you say "heckuva"? Where are you from. I've heard "You're darned tootin", "You Betcha" "Oh Jeez" and multiple references to North Dakota and Minnesota.  Are you sure you are feeling OK. Did you hit your head or inhale the fumes from the nail polish?
 

Pink:
Well, aren't we bein' a bit snippy today?  I couldn't have inhaled the fumes because All NCLA nail lacquers are 100% free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor and never tested on animals. Ever.  So there!  Now tell me.  Do ya think the Kirkwood Mall in Bismarck sells NCLA?

Sally:
(Completely incensed)
Again, Bismark is in NORTH Dakota. NORTH!  I live in SOUTH Dakota. It's a different frickin state and NO THEY DON'T SELL IT THERE!  (Pulls out her iPad and shows on the browser) Just look it up on the NCLA website where you can buy it or you can shop directly on NCLA. But remember, I'm in SOUTH DAKOTA.

Pink:
Well you don't have to yell. I don't see what you being in South Dakota has to do with anything...since it's available on the web and they ship almost anywhere.  Jeez.  Your attitude is real different.  I was going to invite you to go to the Railroad Museum of Minot, but forget it now.  You're too high strung.

Sally:
(now frothing at the mouth from rage)  
Minot is in North Dakota. I'm in South Dakota. They are different states,  Why can't you get that through your thick skull?!? 


Pink:
OHhhhhh. You're in South Dakota. like Deadwood South Dakota from the HBO series.  Oh I see.  Well why didn't ya say so!?  Jeez. You'da thunk I said you were from Wisconsin or somethin'  So, you stayin' for supperrrrr?

Sally:
(Shouts)
GGGGGGGGGGGUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

Pink:
I'll take that as a no.  Too bad. We're havin hotdish casserole, jello salad, pea salad with gherkins and miracle whip, and lutefisk!   Your loss!

Sally:
(Lies motionless on the floor. Her eyes open and glazed over not fixed on any one point. The foam dripping from her mouth is now a puddle of drool and every so often her face twitches as she mumbles the same words over and over again) 
South Dakota....South Dakota....South Dakota

The End.

  1. I love it. I love it. I love it! Thanks for making me look like a deranged basketcase this morning... it was oddly quiet so far this morning since everyone up here at the office is checking email (monday inboxes are the worst) and I started laughing and had to explain to my 72-year-old-office-mate why I was laughing so hard. He didn't understand.

    The color is gorgeous, also, its like, a taupey gold amazingness.

    1. You're welcome. Any time I can make anyone look like a deranged basketcase is a good day for me! And YES Taupe Gold is the perfect description!

  2. I recently tried a few polishes from this brand and so far, so good! I love their shades. Not all of them are unique but they are done well and they are FUN--just the kind of shades I like to reach for year-round! :D

  4. Le Metier de Beaute has a beautiful gold from last fall I think? I have become entranced with gold lately too. Oh, & just for future reference Lewis & Clark came through Idaho too, that's why adjoining towns are named Lewiston & Clarkston & it's called the Lewis/Clark Valley. Not that I'm any better at geography but obvs I am.:)

    1. I was going to include something about Idaho and Hemmingway, but I just couldn't fit it in. Glad to know L&C when EVERYFRIKINWHERE and every state claims them as their own.
