Spotlight On: Mode Cosmetics #10660 Party Crasher

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.

Party Crasher is part of the current Mode Cosmetics collection and is a Royal Purple creme. Please excuse the less than perfect photos, purple looks blue as per usual! I found this shade to be a little tricky to work with – it went on thick, so thick I only needed one coat, and dried very slowly. I also found that my top coat (I use inm Out The Door) changed this shade so much that I swatched it without any top coat on at all. The top coat not only made the shade look twice as dark as it actually was, but it also made the colour streak. I would have tried a different brand of top coat to see if it behaved the same – but I don't have another one! I would suggest a drop of thinner in this shade to make sure you don't get bubbling too. If you have the time and patience for this shade then give it a go, because it is a gorgeous colour.

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. If you have tried these links and Party Crasher is not available on any of these sites, please email me, and I will endeavour to source one for you.


  1. That shade looks really great on you, it is fabulous!

    I wish I could get my purples to work on camera... I always end up giving up when trying to take pictures of them, they never come out right! That is probably why I don't keep a nail blog (also because I have shortshortSHORT nails, haha)

  2. Ohhh, I just bought this one! Haven't done a full mani yet but I'll keep the thickness in mind. Fine with me if it's a one coater:) I use Orly In A Snap at the moment. That seems to work well for me.

  3. This is alllmost my favourite colour.

  4. pretty color!
    my give away:


  5. Carley: Thank you! Purples are VERY hard to get good pictures of - try different lighting, or flash and no flash if you haven't already and see if that works for you! :)

    Millie: Let me know how you go with it!

    Jade: It is a stunner isn't it? How did you go with application?

    you nailed it!: Thank you! I checked out your blog too! :)

  6. This looks like the nail polish equivalent of the cult favourite MUFE #92 shadow <3

  7. Then hopefully this will become a favourite too! ;0)
