Spotlight On: Mode Cosmetics #10642 Solar Powered

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.

Solar Powered is part of the current Mode Cosmetics collection and is a shade of Bittersweet orange. It is an absolutely gorgeous soft, iridescent shade with a golden shimmer. I applied two coats, but depending on how thick you apply the polish, a third might not hurt. Easy to work with and no streaks to be seen! Please excuse the fuzzy pictures, my camera did not want to co-operate with this shade! Unfortunately they simply do not do this shade any justice at all! This is another of my favourite shades, and I'm sure it will be one of yours too!

Nail art: I used Crystallized Swarovski Flat Backs. These ones are Foiled Xilion Rose (2028/ss5.) Colour: 391 Silk. Set into wet nail polish and apply top coat. Voila!

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 sample packs of Swarovski Crystals for anyone interested in replicating my nails! If you have tried these links and Solar Powered or the crystals are not available on any of these sites, please email me, and I will endeavour to source them for you.


  1. I picked this one up this arvo (amongst about another 10 of them LOL!) and I am looking forward to putting it on my fingers.

  2. You won't be sorry! It's a very pretty colour! :)

  3. Although many people think of it as a female beauty product, it was historically very popular with males and it is becoming increasingly popular with them once again.Argan Oil
