Hiya guys. I hope everyone had a nice weekend! It definitely went by in a flash, but my stomach is still feeling all those burgers and hotdogs haha. But after a nice long weekend it's back to the nail grind and I couldn't be more excited. Today I'll be sharing swatches for some of the selection over at Mod Lacquer. This includes swatches for two of their newly released neon collection, which have been highly talked about on social media. Fair warning, gorgeous colors ahead will cause your jaw to drop.
All these polishes and their respective collections are available for purchase at Mod Lacquer's Shop. Prices range from $8.50 for the neon cremes to $11.00 for the holographic finishes. It should also be noted that today is the last day for a 30% off sale that covers the polishes in the Mid-Century Mod Collection.
Mod Lacquer - Energize
Energize, part of the Electrified collection, can be described as a gorgeous true neon pink. My camera was downright flipping out over this color and I don't blame it! So much more neon in person. It's said to be a 'true neon pink' and I am inclined to agree with that fully. Great formula and consistency, extremely opaque in a single layer. For these swatches, I used two thin coats and sealed it with Seche Vite topcoat.
Mod Lacquer - Stimulate
Stimulate, part of the Electrified collection can be described as a blinding bright orange neon. I'm not normally a fan of orange, but the neon power is too much to resist. Again, so much brighter and orange-y in person. These photos really don't do the color any justice. Identical formula as Energize, smooth application and fully opaque in a single coat. As most neons, this does dry to a slightly matte finish so it will need a glossy topcoat. For these swatches, I used two thin coats and sealed it with Seche Vite topcoat.
Mod Lacquer - Golden Sunbeam
Golden Sunbeam, part of the Mid-Century Mod collection, can be described as a metallic gold with micro fine gold holo glitter. I didn't think I was going to like this one as much as I did once I wore it. It looks like sand glistening in the sunlight. A very subtle kind of gorgeous, in my opinion. Formula was a bit sheer and the initial layer had a few visible brushstrokes. It does end up self-leveling really well. The finish is actually very smooth despite it's textured grit look. Swatched here is three thin coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.
Mod Lacquer - Aerodynamic
Aerodynamic can be described as a turquoise scatter holographic nail polish. It's no secret that I am a huge fan of the color teal, especially with a holo finish. Very beautiful for any collection and works well all year round. Excellent formula and consistency, not too thick or too thin. Shown here in two easy coats and Seche Vite topcoat.
Mod Lacquer - Apollo's Landing
Apollo's Landing, part of the Mid-Century Mod collection, can be described as a bright cobalt blue with cool shimmer and super fine holo glitter. I'm so in love with this blue. It's kind of hard to look away, right? These shots don't do the holo any justice, it's a straight up rainbow finish. Another flawless formula and application here. Bonus points because such a vibrant blue that's not a stainer is rare so I'm all over this one. Swatched here in two coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.
Mod Lacquer - American Dreams
American Dreams, part of the Mid-Century Mod collection, can be described as a bright red nail polish with subtle golden sparkle. I always feel like I cannot own enough reds. It's not only one of my favorite shades, but I love how it looks against my complexion. Amidst my vast collection, there is none with golden flakies like this one. Such a unique and beautiful combination to me. Great formula though it does apply a bit like a jelly polish. Sheer on the first coat and dries to nice natural shine. Shown here in three thin coats and sealed with Seche Vite topcoat.
Overall all of this collection is right up my alley in every possible way. From the cremes to the gorgeous holos and flakies. This has been my first experience with Mod Lacquer and it has definitely left an impression with me. Even though we're in the summer of neons, I have to say the two cremes from Mod Lacquer have left me head over heals in love. True neons without the need to use a white base and they can marble, need I go on? Oh and they are black-light reactive too. I'm definitely getting myself the rest of this collection.
I wanted to note again that today is the last day for a 30% off sale that covers the polishes in the Mid-Century Mod Collection. Definitely don't miss out on that if you liked what you saw here.
