Models Own 'Emerald City'

Swoon... I am in LOVE with this nail varnish. Move over boyfriend, my heart belongs to Models Own now! I picked up both the Models Own mini sets (Beetlejuice and Glitters) the other week when they were on sale on - £10 for both!

I have to say though, it's not the easiest polish ever to work with! I layered one hand over a dark green (which peeled off almost immediately - in future I'll just do it straight onto my clear base coat) and one on it's own. The colour difference in the end was minimal but the layered hand took one coat less polish so if you're trying to cut down on the amount of Emerald City you use then this may be a solution. I suspect as well that a base colour that wasn't bought for £1 would work better too... 

However as you can see the glitter effect is totally worth it, and this polish is better than I ever hoped it would be. Admittedly, I'd prefer it a tiny bit more if it was a more grass green but the sparkles win me over totally!

Mm, lovely. Can't wait to try out Scarlett Sparkle and Bluebell!

    1. It really is! Really sparkly as well, you could blind yourself on it in the sunshine :D x

  2. That sparkle is to die for! I know Barry M released a turquoise one that looks pretty similar, but I can't resist a good, chunky polish.
