Mod Lacquer - High Strangeness

Last month the Indie Brand Mod Lacquer posted on their Instagram page that they were looking for swatchers, and of course I was interested. Jennifer, the creator of Mod Lacquer, makes the most amazing holographic nail polishes I've ever seen, but she also makes a ton of unique super sparkly glitter combinations. It's a 3 free hand blended nail polish brand.

I received three nail polishes to try out: High Strangeness, Aerial Phenomenon and Paranormal Paradise.

I decided to dedicate a different blog post to each nail polish, since I took about 100 photos of each of them.....

First up is High Strangeness, a very light violet linear holographic nail polish. It's even more holographic in real life than in these photos!

All photos are taken outside in direct sunlight. The holo is most obvious and beautiful in the sun, although you can still easily see the holographic effect in artificial lighting.

I used 2 coats for the photos and no top coat. I found the first coat was very sheer, and would probably look beautiful layered over another colour. However, the second coat completely covered everything up beautiful! Absolutely no visible nail line.

The formula was very smooth and applied evenly. Even with the sheer first coat, there were no streaks.

The polish dried quickly and applying a second coat was just as easy. With some holographic nail polishes I found that if you don't wait long enough the second coat will drag the first coat and create bald spots. I had no issues with that whatsoever.

A quick summery:
Easy, quick drying, non streaky formula
2 coats for full opacity
Insanely holographic, even indoors
Beautiful light violet shade
Hand blended 3 free formula.

The mini's retail for only $4 (US) and the full size polishes cost $11(US). Luckily for us UK girls, Mod Lacquer ships internationally! 

Mod Lacquers new Fall/Autumn collection The World's Fair will be released on Friday September 19th at 9 PM EST!
