models own ice neon collection

I always love to see new collections from Models Own, they never fail to come up with something interesting yet on trend and I was very pleased to receive two nail polishes from the new 'Ice Neon' collection to have a go with. The twist with the range is that it's advised that you keep the polishes in the fridge to prolong the neon effect, this is probably a bit of a marketing ploy but petty cool nonetheless. The bottles have a frosted effect and come with lids that match the colour of the polish which I really love. If you already have lots of neon/bright shades of polishes I wouldn't say you need to rush out and buy the whole collection however there are definitely a few shades well worth a look.

First off I tried the shade 'Luis Lemon'. After seeing the colour in the bottle I couldn't wait to give it a go but was a little disappointed with how sheer it was upon application. It took around four coats to get a good finish but it is worth it as the colour turns out gorgeous neon lemon. In my opinion this is the stand out and 'must have' shade in the collection.

Next up I got to have a play with 'Pink Punch'. Although you can tell just how bright this shade is, in reality it's slightly more pink toned, think fiery fuchsia. I do already have many neon pink shades in my collection but was surprised to find that this colour is different to them all. This polish has a shine to the finish compared to the semi-matte finish of 'Luis Lemon'.

The collection will launch in Boots stores on 22nd March and will retail at £5 a bottle.


  1. They look amazing, I love the thick finish they leave! And I do love the matte finish of the yellow.
    £5 sounds like a reasonable investment, these colours will be brill for summer :D

  9. How have I only just seen these? So vibrant and amazing, little gutted they take a few coats to build up though, I usually smudge it horribly after two coats of any polish!
    The tip of putting it in the fridge actually applies to all nail polish as it stops them clumping up therefore lasting longer. I don't think I'd have enough space in my fridge for all my nail polish!
