Indie Spotlight: Mod Lacquer Men In Black & Majic Eyes Only

*Nothing to disclose*

Hello, hello!  Do I have some gorgeousity to show you today!  Mod Lacquer LLC is a new-to-me brand and when I saw her latest collection, I knew I had to snag a few!  Above Top Secret is an all holo, UFO-themed, 7 polish collection.  I would have loved to buy the whole set, but since my budget isn't unlimited I picked my two favorites and I have those to show you today.

Majic Eyes Only is a silvery, lavender linear holographic polish.  As far as I can tell from the two I purchased, Mod Lacquer does not skimp on the holo...rainbows everywhere!  This color is so beautiful!  It's actually a lighter purple than I thought it would be from the listing photos, but I don't care at all.  

Seriously, look at that holo halo!  This polish will wow you in the sunshine, but the effect is also strong enough to be seen in regular indoor lighting.  The formula was easy and smooth, opaque in 2-3 coats.  I didn't not top coat this so all the shine is just Majic Eyes Only.  After I took these photos, I top coated Majic Eyes Only and wore it for 3 days and noticed only a small amount of tip wear, no chips.  Definitely passes for durability!  And the top coat did not dull the holographic effect at all.

If you're looking for a purple holographic polish that will knock your socks off, I'd highly recommend Majic Eyes Only.  And if you're saying to yourself, "Well, I already have 4 purple holos..." then you're probably in the wrong place ;)

Next up is Men In Black.  This gunmetal linear holographic polish is a stunner!  I had a hard time describing the base color of this polish.  I was expecting black, the listing says charcoal, and my boyfriend thought it was gold lol  Whatever you chose to call her, she's mysterious and dark...just like her classified namesake. 

Another beautiful formula here, again opaque in 2-3 coats and shown without top coat.   And again, the holo effect was easily noticeable in regular indoor lighting, though you'll get the strongest effect in sunlight.  I did top coat Men In Black after I took photos and noticed no dulling of the holo.

Overall, I have no complaints to report about either of these polishes and I'm hoping to grab a couple other polishes from this collection in the very near future!

Majic Eyes Only, Men In Black, and the rest of the Above Top Secret collection are currently available on the Mod Lacquer Etsy store for $11 for a full-size, 15ml bottle.  Please follow her Facebook page as well, to keep up with new releases, sales and other important info!
