Models Own - Copper Pot, Indian Ocean & Juicy Jules
The first up is Copper Pot, it is a lovely multi-chrome metallic polish which flips from gold to copper with flashes of green hidden in there for good measure. I didn't expect to like this colour as much as I did, it is gorgeous! The formula is a little thin, but it is still only 3 good coats and a topcoat on my nails here so no biggie really. I also layered a coat over black on my ring finger to which greatly accentuates the green in the polish. I really love how this glowed in the sun and I will be wearing it again, a lovely colour for both Summer, and Autumn, its a keeper.
The second polish I have is Indian Ocean. So beautiful, insanely pretty and makes me think of faeries and insect wings. Another multi-chrome, this one flips from baby blue to baby pink shimmery glass fleck polish with flashes of gold. As with the previous one, the formula is a little thin, but the coverage isn't as opaque. For my pics I had four coats on and still there is visible nail line (but it wasn't as obvious in reality). I will forgive it this though because the payoff is very much worth it. I also layered this over black on my ring finger, which accentuates the pink, but also shows the gold flashes off a little more. I love it worn either way, so that makes it a 2 looks for the price of 1 polish, which for any lacquerhead is always a bonus.
Last but certainly not least, is the very sparkly Juicy Jules. This is a silver holo glitter suspended in a clear base. My pics don't do it justice it is beautifully sparkly and blingy, and topped over Indian Ocean looked stunning. It obviously works well as a topper, but I think with two or three coats it would be pretty opaque, so I will be wearing it with more coats over a silver polish too. There are a fair few of this type of glitter around, but if you don't have one already this one is definitely worth a buy, and at only £5 a polish from models own website, and widely available from www.littlewoods.com nail care section (and other outlets too of course!). I am loving Models Own polish right now. Bring on summer, I'm ready :)
