L-R : Models Own - Sophie's Pink, Topshop - Gypsy Night, Models Own - Pink Fizz, Essie - Fiji, Models Own - Sterling Silver
I spent a lot of my time ignoring the 'no nail polish' rule at work in favour of buying lots of nail polish. I tend to go through phases where I wear the same colour non-stop for a while. I thought I'd do a post showcasing some of my favourites, whether they be old favourites or new comers.
First up is Models Own's Sophie's Pink
. I'm pretty sure this is the first Models Own polish I purchased, around almost two years ago now. I love a good bright pink and I just think this shade is perfect. I need another one, but I can never seem to find this shade in store, and I've yet to get round to ordering it online.
I bought Gypsy Night from Topshop a few weeks ago as I had yet to own a black polish. I love the flecks of glitter in it and I think it'll be a favourite Winter polish. Unfortunately it takes quite a few coats to get it opaque, and when applied it seems to be more of a grey/brown than black as I'd hoped.
Models Own Pink Fizz is my favourite glitter polish. I love a good glitter polish and the colour of this one is great. Plus if I wear it as a glitter top coat, it keeps chipping at bay for a lot longer. Let's just not go into how long it takes to remove.
Essie's Fiji is the perfect colour in my eyes, and one I was searching for forever. Not quite nude, not quite pink, not quite white. It's the perfect shade for any season, and looks great with any skin tone! It's just a shame about the 'streaky' application.
I don't think Models Own Sterling Silver is actually anything special, yet it seems to be one I reach for quite a bit. It applies really well and although I tend to apply two coats, you can get away with just one. I was never really a fan of silver polishes until this one. I'm not sure what it is, but there's just something I seem to really like about it.
Obviously my favourite nail polishes change every now and then, but these are a few of my firm favourites that I go back to a lot.
