NOTD: Models Own

A while back I purchased my first nail polishes from Models Own when they had the 50% off offer, I can't believe I haven't tried them before but when I did last night I can surely say I'm loving them so far.

You've probably seen the nail trend going round lately where you paint your ring finger a different colour to the others and I thought I'd give this a try.

I used the colours Lilac Dream (main colour) and Mystic Mauve (ring colour), and I love these colours together. I figured with the sunny weather (which is a first for October in the UK) I'd paint my nails to match.

At first when I was painting my nails with Lilac Dream leaving the ring finger out it looked strange and I wasn't sure if I'd like it but once I popped a coat of Mystic Mauve I really liked the look of it and today it has really grown on me.

Here are some close ups:

(with flash)


I was really happy with the quality of these polishes, it dried quite quickly and I do tend to knock my nails after 5 minutes of doing them so this works in my favour. The glitter coat I found dried more quickly as it was thinner than the pastel lilac. My only gripe I found when doing my left hand the Lilac Dream was a bit too thick and my thumb has those annoying little dots but I couldn't be bothered to redo.

I haven't put a top coat of my nails either yet because I wanted to see how they lasted without so I'll be able to update you with that once they begin to chip.

I'm loving the shine on mystic mauve, I can see me wearing this colour on all my nails soon as it's really pretty. What's great about this is you don't need many coats either literally two were enough. When doing my nails last night my mom wasn't keen on the ring finger fashion but today she complimented me on how nice it looked.

These are £5 and are currently available on models own website or in Boots.

Have you guys ever tried Models Own?
