Arggghh I am so excited about these new launches from Models Own, HyperGel polishes (I keep wanting to call them HydraGel – I think it’s because they’re finish is so shiny it’s almost wet-look, if that makes sense) and my day was made when three of the pastel shades landed on my doorstep on Saturday morning – check out the three shades on my Instagram here – linkPIN IT – so it’s safe to say my next NOTD will feature one of these…but which one? I love them all and I seriously cannot decide so I might have to go for all three.
The HyperGels are pretty much Models Own’s answer to the Nails Inc Gel Effect polishes; a thick, juicy and highly-pigmented pop of colour with a seriously high-shine finish, not unlike the look of a gel manicure from Shellac and the like. The idea behind these ‘faux gels’ is that you get the amazing colour and shine without the faff involved with applying (and removing!) gel polishes.
The shade selection is awesome, containing 10 new colours with something for everyone, from brights, to pastels, to nudes; I will definitely be adding Cerise Shine to my collection. The bottle cap contains a glossy ‘swatch’ of the shade to give you an idea of what’s contained within the polish, and these will be a bargainous five pounds a’pop. They start rolling out in the usual stockists in February and March.
