models own nail polish haul

YesterdayI ook advantage of the great offer Models Own where running and bought a bunch of nail polishes. I woke up this morning with the parcel on my bed (my mum had put it there) and I couldn't believe how quick they came, I hadn't even paid for next day delivery! I opened the box and saw all the gorgeous shades in front of me. I was wowed at how richly pigmented they are, I have never seen so many beautiful colours of nail polish. I decided to apply the glitter nail polish first, I was very sceptical as glitter nail polishes aren't really up to much. I was amazed, they have managed to create an amazing formula with tons of glitter packed into the polish, yet it stays on your nails brilliantly. All the other colours where all just as gorgeous. I can't say enough great things about this company. I have always been looking for a brand that has great colours, the polishes are easy to apply, they stay on long and are at a good price. Well I found it! I have been collecting polishes from OPI, Essie, China Glaze & such for years now, but Models Own is by far my favourite brand. The only down side is that with the glitter polish it can be tough to remove, and the colour 'lime light' is slightly too opaque. To be honest, I will be buying from this brand a lot more often. Here are all the swatches, and please bear in mind some colours aren't completely the same in real life, but most of them look the same. 



^ Magenta Divine (it looks a lot more pink than this in real life, go on the website)


^ Purple Grey

^ Pearly Queen


^ Beth's Blue

 

 ^ Lilac Dream


^ True Blue


^ Lime Light


 ^ Fuzzy Peach (more of a pastel in real life)

^ Top Turquoise


^ Raspberry Crush
