Mod Lacquer

Hello! Today I have an awesome new-to-me indie line to show you guys. When I got the opportunity to try this polish, I jumped on it! Mod Lacquer offers all kinds of polishes. From holos to glitter toppers to jelly based glitter, I'm kind of hooked. I also really dig the bottle shape.

Ok first up is 8-Bit Digits, a fine multi-color neon glitter polish in a clear base. Let me show you the undies I used on their own. Alfresco from the new Sinful Shine line of Sinful Colors polish. What a gorgeous bright cornflower blue!

I used two coats of 8-Bit Digits over Alfresco for the swatches below. I topped it with HK Girl topcoat to get it smooth and shiny.

Dreamland is a lavender creme that has tiny sparks of rainbow colors from the micro holographic glitter. I love this polish so much! It's such a Robin color. And as I'm writing this I remember I was supposed to send it to her but I completely forgot to give it to Erin to put in the next package of nail mail! Oh well. I guess I get to keep it! She's totally not gonna read this, right?

Nonpareils is a milky white jelly base with a variety of different sizes and colors of glitter. I love the mix of tiny glitter with the larger hexes and squares. The only problem I had was with the milky white jelly base. It was a bit milkier than I expected and I wasn't able to get full jelly coverage with the thin coats I was using. Two coats alone for the swatch below.

But I love the look of these glitters! Let's try it with a different base. Two coats of Essie Marshmallow make for good white jelly underwear.

Then I added two coats of Nonpareils over top. Perfect!

How fun are these polishes? I'm so impressed with Mod Lacquer and I can't wait to add more to my stash. Have you tried Mod Lacquer yet? You can purchase from their etsy shop and keep up with new collections on Facebook.
