I have been MIA this past week due to an awful tummy bug, unfortunately I'm still suffering but I am able to keep enough food and drink down to allow a couple of hours of activity at a time... Obviously the first thing on my to-do list was to paint my neglected, naked nails!... And luckily, my Models Own nail mail arrived just in time to play :)
As soon as I saw the previews of these beauts, I was in polish love! Now I've tried these, I might just have to complete the set; they are simply perfect...
First up is Oval Plum, a sumptuous magenta/purple polish with the diamond dust providing a red-ish shimmer with lots of depth. Two coats with topcoat.
This is the lovely Pear Purple, a delicate mauve polish with a pretty golden shimmer. Again this one took two coats and topcoat.
This is Radiant Pink and radiant is right! I real 'pow' hot pink polish with a pearly pink/white shimmer which just shines through! This one took three coats and topcoat.
Now for my favourite Asscher Blue, a light and bright blue base with stunning turquoise diamond dust shimmer. LOVE! Two coats with topcoat.
Last up, and for me least is Princess Pink. A soft baby pink with pearly pink/white shimmer and although pretty, just not the right shade for me. This one took three coats with topcoat.
So which is your favourite? I adore the Asscher Blue but it was a close call with Radiant Pink and Pear Purple... The Princess Pink, though lovely, was not my kinda pink once on and I think I've been spoiled by PP Grace which is PERFECT.
Altogether though this is a gorgeous collection of polish and the diamond dust shimmer is divine! I wasn't expecting it to be as good on the nail as it had looked in pictures or the bottle but I was not disappointed at all, stunning. Lovely smooth, quick drying formula but they does require a topcoat as it dried a little dull like some jellies.
