Mohda nail polishes - Review and swatches of seven shades!

Hello lovelies,

Today I'm going to show you some Mohda nail polishes from Harlow & Co. It's the first time I've tried this brand and I have here polishes from two lines - Hi-definition Metallic and Hi-definition Glass. Each bottle has 8,5ml so it's smaller than the usual bottles of polish. The cap is plastic with blue pearl iridescence to it.



Atirada - light metallic turquoise shade with fine silver particles. It's a very pretty shade especially because of the silver particles that make it a bit special and it has slight duochrome effect to it. The formula was good as it applied easily but I have experienced streaking. The drying time was average and I didn't have any problems with removal.

Atrevida - dusty purple-grey. This shade is another one from the Hi-Definition Metallic. It has really good formula. It is slightly thicker but it still applied very nicely. I find it slightly streaky but less streaky than Atirada. I'm wearing two coats which were enough for a perfect coverage. No problems with removal.

Ousada - coral pink with gold shimmer. The formula is good - easy to apply and dries fast. The finish is quite streaky and glossy. I have applied two coats for full coverage and had no problems with removal.

Sensual - metallic burgundy shade. This is my favourite of all, very elegant colour. It has an excellent formula. It applies very easily and dried fast. As with all the other metallic shades it is streaky and I've had to be careful about the brushstrokes. I'm wearing two coats which were fully opaque.

1º Beijo - blue-based purple with blue shimmer. This polish is designed for layering as it is sheer and full of glass flecks. It applied easily but the drying time was rather slow. I have applied three coats and as you can see, my nail line is still visible.

I have layered 1º Beijo over black and blue so you can see the difference in colour when layered and worn alone.





1º Vez - glass flecked fuchsia base with blue-purple shimmer. This polish is more pigmented than the others and it's good on its own. This is two coats and the coverage was enough. It applied well and dried an average time.

1º Amor - pale pink with blue shimmer glass-flecked polish. This shade is very sheer so it's much better for layering than wearing alone. I'm wearing three coats and I can still slightly see my nail line. It dried quite fast and it applied easily.

Overall the Metallic collection has good formula and pretty shades and I've enjoyed trying it out. I would have liked the shades even more if they were not streaky. The second line - Glass was not as nice. I don't like sheer polishes and even though these look nice layered the formula wasn't as good as the Metallic line.

You can purchase Mohda polishes at Harlow & Co. together with many indie and harder to get brands. Mohda polishes

  7. They're gorgeous, but the Glass ones make me think of a rip on the Sally Hansen HD range. Even the logo is nearly identical.
