Here we have some swatches of two shades from the Models Own Ice Neon collection: Bubblegum and Pukka Purple. It’s currently 2am and I’m running very behind on prep for my weekend away that starts tomorrow, but I HAD to have these on my nails before the weekend started. Therefore I’m apologising in advance for my tardy application.
Both shades are everything I hoped for, and I keep going back and forth with regards to which is my favourite. Pukka Purple is a brilliant, bright purple with heavy blue tones; annoyingly my camera has completely ignored everything other than the blue tones making this shade look almost like a royal blue, which it most definitely isn’t; it’s a brilliant, bright purple that I absolutely love.
Bubblegum is more of a crowd-pleaser being an easy to wear bright pink with a slight hint of coral that’ll stop this washing out warmer skintones. It’s just gorgeous and I can pretty much guarantee it’ll be on my toenails all summer, and will definitely make several appearances on my hands too.
Other than glitter shades, I’ve not previously tried Models Own polishes so this was my first real introduction. The formula is a great and can comfortably rival much more expensive brands.
Both shades went opaque in ONE coat and dried to a semi-matte finish. Both shades claim to be a matte finish but I definitely wouldn’t say they are as there was a light gloss finish before I applied the top coat.
I’m so glad I got to try these two shades as they really are glorious and I can see them selling out very quickly.
The Models Own Ice Neon collection pre-launches at the Bottleshop on 9th March 2013 before launching at Boots nationwide a little later on the 22nd March and will be priced at £5 each. You can also pre-order at the Models Own online store.
I like the colours, but I was expecting the purple one to be really bright and neon, I guess it is hard to produce one – if you say that it’s hard to capture, I believe in you, I guess I will have to see it live once it appears on the stores 🙂 it looks great and mood-lifting from all the cold weather -_- (a bit of heat is too much to ask, isn’t it?) Although I want to try and buy new colours, it seems like a waste of money to me – on my job I am not allowed to wear nail polish 😡 so I can only use it on weekends.
I hope you have a great time on your weekend 😀 Take care***
