I was only thinking over the holidays how we’re due a new Models Own collection, and here it is! The Models Own Colour Chrome Collection is a total stonker that I am extremely excited about as I love a chrome finish on nails.
The Colour Chrome collection is designed to give a liquid metal effect, and I think it does that really well. My painting skills leave much to be desired so I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the streakiness – I have seen other swatches that appear much smoother!
There are ten shades in total: Indigo, Mauve, Cerise, Rose, Pink, Gold, Silver, Olive, Green and Blue. I have five of the shades: Silver, Gold, Pink, Green and Blue.
I am very excited about the fact that there are three pinks in the collection – there’s a pink for everyone! I’m struggling to narrow down my favourites but I think it’s probably the silver and the pink.
I also love, love, love the ice blue finish of the blue shade, but equally the muted green is a very wearable take on a tricky shade and the gold is a spot-on, festive gold that would’ve done very well over Christmas.
I haven’t had a chance to play with them on my nails yet, so this post is more of a heads-up/intro. If I had the time, I’d love to do a gradient with the pink and silver – how pretty would that look?
This is a great collection of lovely shades with a fun finish. In all the swatches the left is one coat and the right is two coats, but there isn’t a huge difference between the two so they seem to offer a decent colour payoff. These launch on the 29th January at the Models Own site where they’ll be part of the 50% promo, so a great opportunity to stock up, but knowing what it’s usually like during these half off sales, you’ll need to move very, very quickly! The Models Own Colour Chrome collection also launches in to Bottleshops on the 31st January and Superdrug on the 11th February.
