I recently received a Pacifica Nail Color trio to review. I want to mention this ahead of time because as of the time of writing this the specific trio that I was sent isn’t available at Ulta. Don’t be dismayed though because if you like these shades they can be purchased individually through the links below!
For those that have read my other Pacifica reviews this part is going to be a bit repetitive. For those who don’t know, Pacifica makes products that are 100% vegan and cruelty-free and they use recyclable materials with sustainable ingredients. Their nail colors specifically are also “7 Free” which means that they are formulated without 7 of the most toxic chemicals in most nail polishes (phthalates, toluene, parabens, camphor, formaldehyde, triphenyl phosphate, and xylene). Pacifica states that removing these ingredients does not take away from the application that it still goes on smooth, stays put, and dries quickly.
Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid / Neopentyl Glycol / Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Styrene / Acrylates Copolymer, Stearalkonium Bentonite, n-Butyl Alcohol, Benzophenone-1, Silica, Alumina, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Polyvinyl Butyral. May Contain: Aluminum Powder (CI 77000), Oxides (CI77499 / CI 77491), Red 34 Lake (CI 15880), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Mica (CI 77019), Blue 1 (CI 42090), Yellow 11 (CI 47000), Titanium
The first shade that was in my trio was Super Fox. Super Fox is a teal shade with a hint of shimmer to it that is absolutely gorgeous. Super Fox would make a perfect Spring or Summer shade and is honestly my favorite out of the trio. What I love most about Super Fox is that out of the three shades this one is actually the only one that is opaque in one coat and it really doesn’t need the second coat.

The next shade that was in my trio was Midnight Rambler. Midnight Rambler is a deep navy blue shade that not only needs two coats but it needs a base coat as well. I always recommend using a base coat as staining can happen with any nail polish, however, I know that when time is short sometimes we short steps but Midnight Rambler is a shade that you don’t want to short the base coat step as it will stain your cuticle and your nail plate! Also with Midnight Rambler it isn’t as opaque as Super Fox is in one coat, however, you can get away with using just one coat.

The last shade that was in my trio was Star Dust Memories. Star Dust Memories is a gorgeous grayish-blue that needs two coats but is absolutely stunning after the second coat. I would have to say that Star Dust Memories would be my second favorite shade out of the three and is one that can be used all year long! In the picture I use Star Dust Memories as an accent nail but let me tell you it looks just as good, if not better, when it’s the only color on the nails.

Overall the Pacifica Nail Colors are amazing. They do go on smooth, they do stay put pretty well, and they do dry quickly. To go along with that the brush is a bit wider than a typical nail polish brush, but not as wide as I’ve seen others, making it the perfect size to make application easy and less mess on the cuticles. I will be looking at Ulta the next time I go in and picking up a few more shades to add to my collection!
