Models Own Artistix Duo Polish - Indian Ocean & Utopia

Models Own have come out with a new range of Nail Polish duo's that very cleverly and cost effectively come packed in a lip gloss like container. One end contains nail paint with more pigmentation for an opaque finish so that would be 'Utopia' the pale pinky taupe shade in this case which would act as your base colour. The second shade is a cover up shade that you can then use to oomph up your base shade. The one in this duo is called 'Indian Ocean' and is the most beautiful, pearlecent ice blue with duo chrome shimmer to it.

The quality of these babies is super as you would expect from a Model's Own Nail Varnish. They glide on easily and coat the nails in one-two coats. Drying them is still a problem for me as I've run out of my seche vite and am debating if I should repurchase it or branch out to try something new.

Apparently there are sprays out there that you spritz on your nails to help dry the polish in seconds. I quite like the sound of a spray than adding an extra layer to the nails like you would with the seche vite top coat. Plus mine dried out in a month and I felt it was such a waste of money!

Isn't 'Utopia' the most beautiful nude pink you have seen till date? It has a bit of taupe kicked in which lends it some cool undertones, making it uber flattering on my skin type. It has quickly become one of my go-to clean manicure shades for this season. 'Indian Ocean' on the other hand is a shade I would never ever let close to my nails but it's combination with 'Utopia' makes is so refreshing and apt for Spring.

You can get the Artistix Duo Polishes at Boots and the Models Own website for £6 in a tonne of drool worthy shades. The shade range is so wacky that you will be tempted to get your hands on one undoubtedly.

This is a shade I really liked the look of - I have wanted Utopia for ages anyway x
