The other day I showed you my latest Mode hauls and expressed a desire to find time to swatch them this week. And huzzah! The weather obliged. I’ve tried to swatch most of them in direct sunlight, except where the clouds took over without me noticing 😄 I just want to say that Mode has some seriously beautiful colours, and I’m a bit sad that I’ve only found them at one pharmacy. I’ll just have to hope they don’t get rid of them any time soon!
Ready for some polish porn?
L-R: Party Girl; Midsummer Dream; Messed Up; Silk Champagne
Hint: Party Girl has some incredible shimmer, click for a full size pic!
L-R: (ignore the Depend, no swatches of that one yet); Glitterati; Frenemy; Bahama; Juicy Plum
Glitterati: First two fingers are 3 coats, second two are one coat Glitterati over Black. Click for sparklies!
Juicy Plum: Woah that shimmer! Oh baby!
I can’t even begin to explain how much I love my Mode polishes! They have great brushes and drying time, the formula is super easy to work with – not too watery and not too gloopy >_< Plus at the pharmacy I found them, they’re only $4.50 NZD a bottle. Fantastico! I always get compliments when I wear any of the colours to work (that’s secretly my favourite part of work – being complimented by customers!)
And hey, since I know you’re all totally interested, here’s my current nails…
This is after one day at home doing chores and one day at work, so excuse the chipping on my middle nail! Eep! I was going for a speckled-egg look. Sir Husband loves it, he says it’s the best nails I’ve ever done! >_< He’s a bit of a weirdo.
It’s two coats of Australis Sweetpea, one coat of Milani Gems, a coat of Seche Vite to seal, a coat of Jordana Soft Pink (a very sheer pastel pink to blot out and soften the glitter), then Seche Vite to finish. Ta-dah! Super fun and great for Easter next weekend ^_^
I love layering 😀
Now I’ve got a very busy next couple of weeks, what with birthdays this weekend, work in between, and an out-of-town wedding next weekend! So I’ll try to keep you updated on the Facebook page ^_^ Go Like us if you haven’t already 😀
Until I see you next~
First lot of Mode swatches are here.
