Models Own New Releases: Pastels, Beads, Shimmer & Glitter

This gloomy weather is making me love nail products as at least they can add some sunshine to the nails and make me feel happy and bright! Especially the ones Models Own have brought out recently will be a huge hit as they are spot on trend. It's got shimmer, 3D glitter, some candy pastels and nail beads to create that textured runway effect.

I have used such nail art pens in the past and they have turned out to be weak in pigmentation, making it impossible to create a good pattern on the nails. These on the other hand as superbly pigmented. I absolutely love the milkshake like colours and although they are bright, they don't wash me out and look rather flattering. My personal favourites are dotting it on a contrasting base to create a polka dot effect or simply create little hearts on a plain white base.

I haven't actually used the nail beads as of yet to comment on how the work but you are meant to apply a base polish and then sprinkle these on until it's fully covered the polish. The polish just acts as an adhesive so don't worry too much about what shade you're using.

My favourite of these lot however are Bora Bora and Sunset Chillout. Both of them are extremely gorgeous and I cannot seem to get enough of them. Bora Bora is a neutral champagne shimmer that's very finely milled and doesn't look frosty or metallic but just modern and glamorous. If you find it difficult to wear shimmer polishes, you have to give this one a try for the Summer.

Sunset Chillout is your typical multicoloured concoction from Models Own but with more shapes and textures than other polishes of it's kind. It reminds of a similar shade from American Apparel that got a lot of love in the blogging community last year. It's fun, perfect for a casual day out or a festival and surprisingly not kiddish at all in real. It's so beautiful to look at - just what they call eye candy!

It's amazing when you look at the Models Own website and see this ocean of innovative shades, all retailing for a fiver. It can turn any nail polish virgin into a nail paint addict instantly.

Your nails look fab! In love with Sunset Chillout!

Sadly don't own many Models Own polishes other than Utopia and Peach Sherbert from years ago. Boots can be overwhelming!
