NCLA Don’t Call Me Peachy! is the perfect spring colour. It’s pastel with a little punch.
I don’t have too many peach lacquers, so I was really excited to try this one out.
In certain lighting, it reminds me of a Creamsicle. (And, believe it or not, I’ve never eaten a Creamsicle before!) In turn, thinking of the cool treat reminds me of warmer weather.
Speaking of the weather, Mother Nature is really having fun with us, isn’t she?
A few days ago, it felt so balmy like spring had come early. I actually was able to sleep with the windows open, and boy did the fresh air smell so good! (Being cooped up in the winter makes us forget how good fresh air smells. Then, when you smell it, it’s incredible!)
Well, yesterday the weather took a major dip. There was snow, and at night, I saw some hail. Brr! Just when everyone was saying how nice it was to wear lighter jackets and no gloves, Mother Nature rolled up her sleeves like a boss! 😉

NCLA Don’t Call Me Peachy! Review
Although the sassy name says not to call it peachy, I’m totally going to have to describe it as such!
Don’t Call Me Peachy! by NCLA is definitely peachy – a pastel orange that isn’t so light that it looks weak, but that also isn’t so strong that it reminds you of Hallowe’en.
It’s part of a spring collection, and I think it’s absolutely perfect for this time of year. It’s a colour that reminds me of youth, rebirth, and vitality.
I liked how this shade looked against my skin tone. It stood out, but in a way, also blended in. It’s very soft, but because it’s orange, it’s more eye-catching. Really fun hue to wear!
Don’t Call Me Peachy! by NCLA has a creme finish, which is very simple. But, sometimes simple cremes can be wonderful, as they allow the colour of the polish to truly shine. Also, you’ve gotta love how creme polishes are easy to remove – no scrubbing your fingers raw!
Application & Formula
At first, the polish was streaky, but when I applied a second coat, it started to look better. Then I added a third coat, and it improved even more. (With a top coat, it really evens out.)
I found that the formula was easy to control. It was on the thick-yet-a-little-watery side.
NCLA nail polish isn’t tested on animals. If you’re making conscious cruelty-free shopping choices, you’ll be really glad to hear this!
Final Verdict: 8/10
I really enjoyed wearing this shade. Just like NCLA Tennis Anyone? (the yellow from the same collection), I also wore NCLA Don’t Call Me Peachy! for several days before removing it. (I don’t always post my current manicure on the blog. Oftentimes what you see on here was already removed, and I’m on to the next colour!) Gotta love these colours that remind us of warm, spring weather. 🙂
Do you wear peachy shades? Do you prefer bold orange or pastel orange? Have you worn any NCLA nail polishes, or is this a brand that’s also new to you?
