Nothing to Disclose
Hello my lovelies! I want to first thank you for being patient with me and my spotty posting schedule here lately. I’ve been right in the middle of the end of semester, the holidays are here, and I’m going to try to pick up some extra hours at work during my school break. So thank you! Second because of my somewhat spotty posting schedule I’ve had these pictures in the vault waiting for a moment to be released out into the world to inspire wishlists everywhere! I have three delightful polishes from Mod Lacquer today! Let’s get started, I’m ready to roll!
First up I have Waxing Whimsical!
Isn’t this fun?! I adore colors like this. I tend to be very drawn to bright pastels and bright colors in general. This is a bright mint green crelly based polish packed with multi-sized matte hot pink square and hex glitters! It would almost be a jelly base if it were a little more translucent. It does go on a bit sheer but three thin coats and it’s all good.
I didn’t have any problems getting the glitter, even the larger sizes, out onto the nail. The glitter spread nicely and didn’t require any major manipulations. I do recommend doing your first coat especially thin and not to worry about getting too much glitter on in the first coat or two – that could cause the glitter to clump up and need a lot of manipulation if the upper layers of glitter are catching on the glitter that has already dried a bit. Bottom line: I love this polish, the colors are perfect for me, the formula was really nice and I would totally recommend it!

Next up we have the one that I thought was going to be my favorite from the bunch – I was wrong but I still love this one too! I present to you Radical!
Let me say – this is another polish that is right up my color alley as it were. I ADORE blues, greens and teals. I do wear other colors but I really am drawn to that part of the color spectrum! Radical is a bright blue crelly based polish with tons of tiny matte hot pink hex glitters meandering through the base. Again this is a crelly that could almost be a jelly if it were slightly more translucent. It is sheer like Waxing Whimsical but again this is three thin coats and it shows only the barest amount of VNL. As you know a little VNL never bothers me. I like the squishiness, and I do not like to layer crellies and jellies over solid opaque polishes because they seem to lose that quality to me.
This polish went on like a dream. Seriously, one of the easiest glitter polishes to apply. I really love the color on this one and I’ll definitely be reaching for it to overcome any winter doldrums that I may feel as the season wears on.

Ok last but certainly not least is my favorite of the three I picked up – Paranormal Paradise!
O.M.G. This is a clear based glitter topper. The amount of holographic glitter in this amazing polish is simply EPIC. Being clear based I did layer it over undies but honestly what you see is one dabbed coat…I think I could have build this one to opacity if I wasn’t hoarding up my bottle like a crazy polish lady! Packed into the clear base is BIG holographic pink, silver, hot pink, and aqua circle glitters, medium metallic red and pink hexes, tiny metallic lime green hexes, and throughout is fine holographic multi-colored micro-glitter.
There is so much glitter my camera really was freaked out and didn’t know where to focus! No digging or fishing was required, but I did turn the bottle upside down for about 20 minutes before I did this swatch. I do this with almost all of my glitter polishes, gravity helps pull the chunky bits up to the top where the brush can catch them more easily. This polish is crazy festive in my opinion and would be great topped over black, gray, or navy for the New Year!
