Mod Lacquer-Lightning Lime

I found an amazing new indie brand as I was perusing Etsy a couple of weeks ago!  Mod Lacquer jumped out at me (along with Indigo Bananas) when I added 24 new indie shops to my indie page.  She has shimmers to die for! She also has duochromes that stand alone without undies!  I was quite simply, intrigued.  Here's what Mod Lacquer says in her "About Me" section of her store:
Nail polish has been an obsession of mine for most of my life. I'm always searching for the most beautiful and unique colors, and that is what I focus on creating for my store.
Today, I have Lightning Lime from Mod Lacquer's shop.  
Lightning Lime is a dark green on the much darker side of lime.  I have to say that this polish stunned me. It was ALMOST a one coater!  The polish has a buttery formula and is very pigmented.  It glided onto my nails!  I was pretty shocked at the quality of this gorgeous gold shimmer!  Oh ya, the shimmer!  There is a very obvious lime shimmer in Lightning Lime!  You don't have to look for it. You don't have to put a macro lens on it to see it. It is in your face.  AND the icing on the cake?  It dried before I could even get the Seche Vite on it!  Lightning Lime has lightning fast dry time!
You may not need a macro lens to see the shimmer, but I can show you anyways!
Bottle shot!  The labels are only on the bottom.  The bottles are a cute shape-square with rounded sides.
I naively thought that Mod Lacquer Lightning Lime might be a dupe of Cult Nails Get Over It.  I was totally wrong!  Deal With It is much closer to lime in color, and makes Lightning Lime look darker.  The shimmer is more apparent in Lightning Lime by a fraction.  Lightning Lime took just over one coat, and Cult Nails took four.  Mod Lacquer may be the new kid on the block, but it is the real winner here!

You can buy from her Etsy shop HERE.  Mod Lacquer's polishes retail for $9.50
