Models Own - Pastel Collection


I thought I would show you all the Models Own Pastel Collection this time.  I won these in their 30,000 likes giveaway that they recently ran on facebook.  When they hit 50,000 likes they are giving all facebook fans a code for 50% off on their website so if you like Models Own and are not already a fan on facebook, get over there now!!!  I think they are almost at the 50,000 likes, just a few more hundred to go and 50% discount is definately worth having.  I already have the products I want to buy in my basket, I'm just hoping the code isn't issued whilst I'm at work as I think there may be a huge response and items will sell out quickly!  Anyways, this is the pastel collection :


For once my camera has done a good job of capturing the colours!

I think that Models Own polishes are up there with the likes of OPI and Leighton Denny in terms of application.  I think that I could have got away with just one coat of all except the blue and teal, they were the only two that had a streaky first coat, and in terms of drying time, they dry super fast, even after two coats they were dry within a couple of minutes.  Much quicker than the above mentioned brands. Pastel shades are usually a right bitch to get an even application with, not these little beauties!  Best of all they only cost £5 each whereas OPI and LD are £10 - £11 each.  I also like this brand as they have sooo many different "fashion" shades and glitter polishes too!  I soooo love my glitter polishes and it's so hard here in the UK to find anything other than gold or silver if you're very lucky.  I know OPI have some lovely glitter polishes but Models Own have more!!  Oh and Nails inc have some gorgeous glitters too at the minute but they are also around the £11 mark.

This is my mani for the week, using the usual base and top coat along with the pink and lilac from this collection with just a tiny bit of sparkle courtesy of China Glaze!

Thanks for reading!  Have a good week and see you next time!
