Mode Swatches

Life is pretty stressful this week and the Cheetah is still on my nails so I thought I'd post some swatches from Aussie brand, Mode. For my Australian followers, I find mine at my local Chemmart Pharmacy priced at 2 for $4 or $2.50 each, but I have also seen them at a Price Cut Hairdressers.

Dressed Up. This is my go to Khaki. It's fine in 2 coats as suits my skintone.

Arsonist. A Dark red with gold shimmer. 2 coats. Just Yummo.

Blue Steel. Love this, it's a grey with all blue shimmer. 2 coats.

Trendsetter. 2 coats. A metallic bronzed gold.

Runway. A super dark and wonderfully pigmented Teal. This Konad's amazingly

Fabness. These pics show this color as a burgundy which it isn't at's a dark Grape purple...I dont even know why I'm including these pics. 2 coats.

Glitterati. An almost dupe for Zoya Mimi. A dark purple glitter in purple jelly. Just divine and 2 coats.

Party Girl. A darker version of Orly Bailamos with a Turquoise shimmer. Much nicer than this picture IRL and 2 coats.

Eurotrip. A dark brown with gold shimmer. 2 coats.

Hope you enjoyed my spam!


  1. I have always looked at these but never actually bought any! I'm going out now to get some! :P

  2. Awesome spam! They have some great polishes; I especially like Party Girl, Eurotrip and Glitterati. Might have to see if any of the chemists nearby stock these!

  3. Carina, if you cant find any lemme know as my local chemist has dozens.

    Thanks Danielle! Party Girl is a must have.

  4. I've only seen one other swatch of Dressed Up but I love the greige shade!

    Blue Steel looks quite similar to ulta3's Sweet Violet in base colour, but it has a little more shimmer.

    I am in LOVE with Runway!!! :D It is a spectacular teal.

    Party Girl is also quite lovely. But if what you say that it is better irl is true, then I DEFINITELY want it!

    Now I must go check out my local Mode supplier and hope that they have a wider range of colours in store! Usually they only have the ugly bright neon pinks and yellows. (shiver)

  5. Great swatches! I love Messed Up, Runway and another medium purple called Party Crasher. Most of all I love my frankened Chillax. It has the most amazing green shimmer and with gray and white added looks similar to RBL 360 with added subtle green shimmer (ala Essie Demure Vixen)!

  6. Blue steel, glitterati and runway, wow, I love.
    It'd be awesome if Mode were availible in my area c:
