NCLA polishes are made in Southern California, USA. They are 5-free, cruelty-free, & vegan (can't get better than that!). They make my absolute favourite creme polishes (seriously, out of all the brands I've tried, NCLA makes the most amazing creme polishes -- best colour saturation, best formula, best shine!). This particular shade, "Rock Solid" is a medium-dark grey creme with silver glitter. I used 2 coats for this mani (super easy to apply) and topped with Seche Vite.
I usually do some fairly standard photos but these will be a bit different since I did this mani at 6pm and it's pouring rain out -- so any outdoor shots are kinda dark (same with the "near the windows" indoor shots). I did the best I could!

I really love this polish! I'm a sucker for greys and I love the glitter in this -- it's tiny so not to be overly blingy but adds that extra bit of sparkle. It's also perfect for this fall theme of "wet sidewalks" and autumn. Especially appropriate considering it IS pouring rain outside!
Where to buy NCLA? You can purchase directly from their website (I have, they have crazy fast shipping! Seriously, they shipped an hour after I ordered & LA to Toronto in 5 business days, that's awesome!). You can also buy from their various distributors (check their site for details). In Canada, Nail Polish Canada and Harlow & Co carry their polishes.
NB: As NCLA was one of the prize sponsors for the Nail Polish Canada Great Polish Giveaway, I won this polish. However, it was not given in exchange for a review, my opinion is completely independent of the giveaway!
