BEAUTY: Models Own Nail Polish

I bought three Models Own nail polishes yesterday as they are currently 3 for 2 in Boots. I've never tried these nail polishes before so seen as they were on offer I bought some. I have to say I'm not that impressed with them, when you open them they have a really strong smell to them and the consistency is very thin and watery meaning you need quite a lot of coats to achieve a good colour.

L-R Lemon Meringue, Golden Peach and Red Alert

Lemon Meringue

This is a very pale pastel yellow and it took three coats to get the colour you can see in the picture below. This is my least favourite because I can't get used to the colour it's really different to anything I'd normally wear. However I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Golden Peach

I love this colour so much, it's a lovely peach shade with a golden shimmer, I'm pretty pale and it suits me so it'd look amazing with a tan! Again it took three coats to get the colour you can see in the picture however I think it'll take around 4-5 coats to get a good solid colour. There a three pictures for this one because I think the third picture captures the shimmer a little better however these pictures don't do the colour justise.

Red Alert

There's not much to say about this one, it's the best out of the three it terms of coats needed I put two on to get the colour in the picture. With this one though you can really so just how watery the polishes are. When I opened to bottle it looked very thin and a bit like red water.

In all I do like the colours of these polishes but I probably wouldn't buy more Models Own polishes. Five coats of a nail polish is a little excessive especially seen as my favourite (Golden Peach) needs the most coats. The only good thing is they dry quickly but thats only because they're so thin in consistency.
