Models Own Diamond Luxe Collection

Models Own have brought out tonnes of collections over the past year and when I heard about the brand new Diamond Luxe Collection which contains a whopping 10 shades, I couldn't wait to try some of the shades out.

Diamond Luxe isn't your 'average' nail polish as it contains real diamond dust! Meaning you can feel like a Princess but still for the same Models Own price of £4.99.
The added diamond dust adds a gorgeous shimmer to the nail polish without appearing glittery and makes the nail polish look super elegant!
Models Own have also changed the bottle by adding a rather posh looking gold cap!

Below are the 10 shades in the collection - Princess Pink, Trillion Taupe, Heart Red, Pear Purple, Marquise Maroon, Carat Coral, Asscher Blue, Radiant Pink, Emerald Green and Oval Plum.

I decided to try out the shades Radiant Pink, Trillion Taupe and Marquise Maroon.

Radiant Pink - This is a bright Barbie pink that has a slight silver shimmer. This is the least favourite colour that I have tried out as it doesn't really go with my skin tone, plus I needed to apply 3 coats and could have done with a 4th as the formula didn't seem as pigmented as the others.

Trillion Taupe - This is a gorgeous creamy, taupe shade with an elegant gold dust. This shade suits my skin tone perfect but I think this shade is going to be like Marmite... You either love it or hate it. 
This shade was highly pigmented and I could get away with 1 coat if in a rush but I used 2 coats (as shown below).

Marquise Maroon - This shade is my favourite of the three. It's an elegant deep wine colour with a red and gold shimmer. Again this shade is very pigmented and can get away with only applying 1-2 coats.

These nail polishes are absolutely stunning and super pigmented, with the exception of Radiant Pink as this is my least favourite. The next shades I need to try from the collection are Pear Purple, Emerald Green and Oval Plum.

Models Own Diamond Luxe is now available Online, from Models Own Bottleshops and also from Superdrug Stores nationwide from the 24th September. RRP £4.99.

What are your thoughts on the Models Own Diamond Luxe Collection? What's your favourite shade?

NOTD | Pitch Black

Hi Lovelies, Hope you are all having a lovely week so far.
While shopping in Superdrug last week, I thought I would take a stroll past MUA to see if they had any more of their fab £1 nail polishes to add to my MUA Nail Polish Collection. To my surprise there were tonnes of new polishes that had been added to the collection so I thought it would be rude not to extend my own MUA collection a little more!

One of the shades I chose was Pitch Black, as one of my favourite black nail polishes had just ran out and I really needed a new one so I thought I would give MUA's black polish a try. Just like the other nail polishes in the collection they glide on to your nails with ease as their consistency is perfect and they also dry reasonably quick too. I love to wear a black nail polish to work as I think it looks really simple yet sophisticated on my nails and also goes with anything I decide to wear!

This nail polish has lasted for 4 days on my nails and has only just started to chip, for only £1 these nail polishes are amazing value for money!

MUA is available Online and also from Superdrug.

Have you tried any of the £1 MUA nail polishes? What's your favourite shade?

NOTD | Fizzy Cola Bottles

Hi Everyone! Hope you have all had a lovely week and weekend,
As you may all know Models Own is one of my favourite nail polish brands and they have now released their 'Sweet Shop' Collection which consists of 5 scented polishes inspired by some of our sweet shop favourites!

For today's nail of the day I thought I would try out Fizzy Cola Bottles, not only is this one of my favourite sweets but it is also one of my favourite polishes from the collection. This is a light coffee colour which also has silver micro glitter and a gold shimmer going through it to add some fizz to your nails. It also smells just like cola bottles too!
The formula is also great and it dries really quick. I only needed to apply 2 coats plus my favourite top coat - Seche Vite to finish.

I also have two other shades from the Models Own Sweet Shop Collection which I'm going to try over the next couple of weeks, Gumballs and Liquorice Allsorts. I must say I'm super excited about trying Liquorice Allsorts as I do love a good black nail polish in my collection!

Have you tried any of the nail polishes from the Sweet Shop Collection? What's your favourite?

Models Own Sweet Shop retails at £5.00 and is now available Online and in store from Boots and Superdrug.
