Spotlight On: Mode Cosmetics #10633 XOXO

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.

XOXO is part of the current Mode Cosmetics collection and is a purple creme shade. It looks like a neon when in the bottle, but it dries considerably darker when on your nails. It was quite difficult to capture the true colour of this shade in my photos, but the image below is the closest representation. This shade was a little runny, but I was still able to achieve even coverage with two coats, so I was happy! If you happen to find this one, give it a go!

Nail art: I used L.A. Colors Art Deco Nail Art Lacquers NA924 Bubble Gum and NA922 Magenta to create this look. Allow nail enamel to dry before applying stripper polish. Starting in the center of one edge of your nail, sweep first lacquer shade "diagonally" across nail in a curved line, tapering the line toward the end point in the corner. Allow the first line to dry a little before repeating the step with the second shade right next to the first line. Repeat this step, alternating the colour until you fill the entire corner of your nails, ending with a "fan" pattern. Once you are finished and the polish is semi-dried apply top coat. Be careful not to apply the top coat too early otherwise you will end up with unsightly streaks! I hope my description helped!

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 Deco Nail Art Lacquer colours used for anyone interested in replicating my nails! If you have tried these links and XOXO, Bubble Gum or Magenta are not available on any of these sites, please email me, and I will endeavour to source them for you.

  4. Oh, me too! I'm fussy with purple shades - but this one was a winner!
