NOTW: Models Own Polish for Tans – Shades!

I know it’s September but I am not quite letting go of the summer feeling yet. I had been lusting after the Models Own Polish for Tans collection all summer but couldn’t seem to find them anywhere! I was over in England and I spied one left on a stand and it was the Shades shade.This is a gorgeous pink toned neon. It goes on totally opaque in two coats, I know this will be fab on toes as well but that may have to wait until next summer. I really want to pick up the Beach Bag shade in this range as well. The polishes cost €7.65 but are really worth it if you want a final hit of summer!

NOTW: Models Own Southern Lights

This has nothing to do with the nail polish but I am obsessed with seeing the Northern Lights, it’s been on my bucket list for years! So because of my obsession I really wanted the Models Own Northern Lights nail polish but unfortunately it was out of stock when I was placing a 50% off order online. So I opted for the next best thing… Southern Lights! This is a fine holographic glitter polish in a sheer grey toned base. It looks very sheer on its own so I think it really comes to life when used over a base colour. I used a baby blue polish underneath this and I think it really makes the glitter pop. I used two coats of glitter for this look. I wouldn’t normally wear glitters in the summer but I think this is very pretty when it catches the sunlight. What do you think? You can pick up Models Own polishes in bigger Boots stores for €6.

NOTW: Models Own Artstix Boogie Dream

I really am like a bit of a magpie when it comes to my nail polishes, anything that is sparkly is a winner in my book. I spoke about my Models Own haul recently here and as part of it I bought two of the Artstix polishes. These are cool polish duos with colour on one end and a bit of sparkle on the other. It’s basically nail art for dummies and I am definitely a dummy with nail art. Below is the pretty combo Boogie Dream, you can buy these from Boots for €9.15.

I love me a bitta Models Own, I have a small but blossoming collection of their polishes. They’re a great go to for a wide variety of nail colours and finishes. They recently celebrated getting 250,000 likes on their Facebook page by having a half-price sale on all polishes. I of course jumped on the bandwagon early in the morning when the sale launched. The site crashed a few times with the demand but I needn’t have fretted as there was a lot of stock.

NOTW – Models Own and Barry M!

I was feeling a bit down in the dumps the other day so decided to cheer myself up with a bit of nail art, as you do! :) I had a rummage though my stash and found this bright neon pink called Pink Punch. For some reason it’s coming out a little orange in photos but in reality it’s more pink toned. I had to jazz it up of course, so I dug out a Barry M Nail Art pen which I hadn’t even opened. The pen is brilliant I have to say, really easy to use, although it’s tricky doing your right hand. This is supposed to be leopard print style, not sure if I pulled it off but it cheered me up!

NOTW – Models Own Champagne!

This weeks Nail of the Week (NOTW for short – how cool am I?!) is an oldie but a goodie. I was heading out at the weekend and I was wearing a black maxi with gold accessories. I had a rummage through the nail collection and I came across this lovely from Models Own. I applied it and remembered why I liked it so much! Its a lovely creamy gold with an almost textured feel when on. It’s called Champagne and that’s exactly what it looks like. What do you think?
