Models Own & Nails of the Week

I totally abused Boots 3 for 2 offer today. I got make up, some Real Techniques brushes (I will these review asap but I want to actually use them & get a feel for them first!) and some Models Own nail polishes.

Clockwise from top - Pink Fizz, Utopia, Indian Ocean.

I don't know about you but Pink Fizz was very hard to come across from December 2011 - present. When I saw it in the Boots stand today I almost fell over. Utopia I felt would be a lovely base coat for Pink Fizz and also lovely nude shade on its own. Indian Ocean was more of a impulse buy, the bottle just looks beautiful. I have a few blues in my nail collection so thought this would look nice over them. To be honest I probably could have done without Indian Ocean as it's very similar colour wise to O.P.I Save me by Nicki Minaj. But I love the pinky/purple shades within it.

Indian Ocean, Utopia, Pink Fizz

These are actually my first ever Models Own purchases! I must say I thought the brush was a little thin when I opened it but it applies really nicely and precisely. I would say that with Utopia you need 2 coats to make it opaque and of course with the other two you just apply as wanted. I'm really impressed with the brand actually - I want some more colours asap.

These are on 3 for 2 at Boots right now so I got all 3 for £10 which was the main reason I took the plunge! Very pleased I did!

Left to Right - Utopia with Indian Ocean over the top, Utopia on it's own, Utopia with Pink Fizz over the top and another Utopia on it's own!

Sorry for the rubbish nail polish applying skills but I just wanted to see what they looked like on!
