Spotlight On: Mode Cosmetics #10537 Say Cheese

Firstly, please read my post Introducing.... Mode Cosmetics Nail Enamel! if you have not done so already, as it contains general information about this brand of nail enamel.

Say Cheese is part of the current Mode Cosmetics collection and is a fantastic Tangerine yellow creme! A little tricky to apply, I found that I needed 4 (!?) coats to get rid of the streaky appearance, but the effort was sooooooo worth it! I love the boldness of this shade!

Nail art: I used Color Club's Art Club Nail Art Lacquer to create this look. First layer is NA10 Lite Pink (also referred to as 05C010) and the second layer is NA18 Crystal Glitter (also referred to as 05C018.) Allow nail enamel to dry before applying stripper polish. Starting in the bottom corner, sweep first lacquer shade "diagonally" across nail, then follow with two further strokes on either side of the first. When dry, apply the second lacquer shade in the same fashion, taking care not to completely cover the first layer. I find this style works best when the second layer is a glitter, or a lighter shade than the first. Repeat this technique on the opposite corner. Be careful not to apply the top coat too early otherwise you will end up with what I have done here - unsightly streaks! Oops!

I will be listing a bottle of this shade on OZtion for any Australian ladies interested in owning one! I will also be offering it for trade on MakeupAlley in the near future for anyone, anywhere! For ladies outside of Australia who would like to buy a bottle, please email me and I will happily list one on eBay for you. I will also be selling the Art Club Nail Art Lacquer colours used for anyone interested in replicating my nails! If you have tried these links and Say Cheese, Lite Pink or Crystal Glitter are not available on any of these sites, please email me, and I will endeavour to source them for you.
