Essie - Mod Squad

Hi everyone!!

I have a lovely Barbie pink polish to share with you this Pink Wednesday. I had Mod Squad on my wish list for a while and finally ordered it online from Ulta when I had a coupon. It's from Essie's Spring 2007 collection based on what I was able to find.

Mod Squad is such a beautiful pink, but the formula isn't the greatest. It's a runny, slightly thick crelly that did not apply very evenly. I experienced a lot of balding. I don't know if I got a bad bottle because I didn't notice this complaint anywhere else. I had to take extra care with this polish and wait between coats. I had to use three coats for full opacity. I used Orly Nail Defense as my base and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Isn't this a really pretty and girly pink?! I really do like it, just not the formula. I plan to keep it around though.

What do you guys think of Mod Squad? Is it in your stash?

  2. This color is so pretty! I don't have this color, but I have one similar to this from the summer collection. I hate that you say the application was so uneven and you had to wait in between coats.

  3. What a fantastic pink--it's so squishably yummy-looking! Shame about the formula, but I often seem to have that problem with Essies. Sometimes it's worth the patchy formula, though, for a colour as pretty as this!

  7. Definitely pretty. Shame about the formula though. Can't believe a polish from a 2007 collection is still around. I've heard that Essie polishes were not that good back then.
