Jindie Nails Mod Quad, Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! I've had these polishes for awhile now, and it's really inexcusable that I've taken so long to post them. Jindie Nails Mod Quad consists of four fun glitter toppers that are meant to be layered over a base colour. These were released last month along with the Summer Chic collection (see my review) and the two limited edition polishes, Moon Walk and She Blinded Me With Science (see my review).

I'm really impressed with these four polishes. I've seen a lot of glitter toppers but these really stand out to me. With the exception of Eclectric, they also have a shimmer to them, which makes them even stronger. I love glitter bombs that also have shimmer.

A History of Violets is a clear-based glitter topper with a beautiful iridescent purple shimmer that is really noticeable - especially when layered over a darker base. It has lots of white, purple, fuchsia, and pink, with a touch of periwinkle glitter. The glitter is a mixture of matte, metallic and holographic, as well as a variety of shapes - circles, hexes, squares, diamonds and shards. I absolutely love this one, it's so pretty yet complex. I used one coat with touch ups over China Glaze Charmed, I'm Sure.

Dancing With The Stars has white, neon pink, black and holographic silver glitter in addition to a silver shimmer. It's another one with a variety of shapes - circles, stars, butterflies, moons, hexes and squares. The formula was great and the glitter payoff was very good, no fishing or fussing required.  I used 2 coats over China Glaze Public Relations.

Eclectric has a very fun mixture of glitter - lots of canary yellow, but also neon pink, blue and green, and lavender, red, white, black and wine. The colours are mainly bright and very saturated, and the darker colours - black and wine - are very minimal and provide an accent. There's a mixture of large and small glitter and also a variety of shapes - circles, stars, squares, bars, and hexes. I used two coats over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

Sparkle On The Vine has lots of iridescent shimmer and is packed with pink, fuchsia, silver, teal, green, and purple glitter in squares, circles, hexes, and tiny bars. This is such a beautiful mixture of colours, and clearly a stand out for that reason. I used two coats over China Glaze Queen B - one would have been enough, but it was so pretty that I wanted another coat. :)

Overall, the formula on these is excellent. I had no issues getting enough glitter out and I didn't have to fish for the larger glitters. All four have a great variety of colours, shapes and finishes of glitter. My favourites of the four are Sparkle On The Vine and A History of Violets (I love the name on that one too - I'm assuming it's a play on the film A History of Violence, which I really enjoyed).

These polishes are available on the Jindie Nails website and from Llarowe. Jindie Nails is also available from Harlow & Co., Ninja Polish, Femme Fatale Cosmetics, and Mei Mei's Signatures. Follow Jindie Nails on Facebook and Instagram (@jindienails) for updates and new releases.

    1. Thanks so much Amey! The hand pose definitely takes practice and trying different things to see what works. And I'm glad you liked the polishes, even if it's not your thing! Chunky glitter is definitely something that won't work for everyone.
