Sigh, this is my final Mod Lacquer polish. This one took four separate attempts to photograph. I tried different colors, different lighting, but this glitter just didn’t want to cooperate with my camera.
I’d also like to take a moment to thank Jennifer for being patient with me. She never once hassled me about getting swatches done, and she graciously shared them on her pages. I know my turnaround time was not ideal, but with life getting just crazy for me and wanting to get as close to perfect photos as possible, things got really spread out, and I’m glad she was so kind. I’m happy to have swatched a few of her beautiful polishes. <3
Now, on to the pictures!
This is Retro Disco, an awesome rainbow-y glitter topper. These photos are one generous coat over Wet n Wild On a Trip, with one coat of top coat.
This glitter is actually pretty cool. It gives a sort of scattered holo effect, without actually being a holo. It’s a little sparse if you don’t dab a bit, but I like that since it allows you to decide how much you want to build - a light glitter effect or full-blown glitter! Dry time was a little slow for me since I was a bit generous, so the clear base wasn’t as thin a coat as I normally like. But, that’s probably nothing a good, quick dry top coat can’t fix.
I honestly wasn’t too crazy about this one. It’s really pretty, but I guess I wasn’t expecting it to look so much like a scattered holo. I have a few of those kinds of glitters, and while it was fun to discover that this glitter had that effect, it just wasn’t what I wanted. That said, holos tend to shift and this glitter doesn’t, so it’s a neat twist on that rainbow sparkle. And to its credit: it had one of the best brushes of any of the mini bottles! That made it very easy to get the glitter just where I wanted it.
Again, thank you, Jennifer, for the opportunity to swatch some of your polishes! <3
