Good morning lovely readers,
Last week I was contacted by Models Own on instagram as they liked my feed and wanted to send me some polishes! I was blown away! Now there’s a brand with good taste, ahem!
To follow me and see what you’re missing click here!
So they arrive very yesterday in the post and I opened up for a peek!
They sent me 5 shades, from left to right they are ; turquoise sea, malibu pink, cocktail hour, sarong wrap and beach hut.
Now normally I wouldn’t buy these. The real reason being I’m not naturally inclined to tan, though I made a concerted effort last week to get me some vitamin D.
Beach Hut is a super bright fluorescent orange. It’s cool, but probably not the shade I was destined to wear, even with my love of orange. Pictured here with coats. The formula is quite a bit thicker than;
Cocktail Hour! A really fun fluorescent pinky red. This is more my shade or pink/red. Thinner in formula and pictured with two coats.
I love this bubblegum pink colour, and would happily wear this daily and to work. Two coats but probably needed a third here and there.
I’m not normally one for yellow and this did nothing to change my mind. It doesn’t beat the yellow shade from the Barrym speedy quick dry collection (previously swatched here). I did two coats but perhaps could use 3. Not keen on the formula.
Turquoise Sea might be my total favourite from the 5. Formula is amazing and I got great coverage with two coats. I left this on afterwards and was really impressed with the shine and finish.
I’d be keen to try some more polishes from this range, though the formulas are somewhat hit and miss.
Thanks for reading, what do you think of the colours?
