As a blogger, I start and stop a lot of posts and leave them sitting in my Drafts for ages. I like to make a start on a post so I know I can pick it up at some point and this is just one of those posts, except that I actually did forget about it and only just found it - Whoops!
Last year Models Own released a collection of duo-chrome nail polishes called Beetlejuice and it set the beauty blogging world on fire. On first glance, it looked like it was going to be an amazing collection with the colours being eye-catching and all sorts but once I swatched a couple of the nail polishes they just didn't do it for me. The consistency was spot on and only took two coats but it didn't last as long as I was hoping and there was just no "WOW" factor once it had dried.
After only one day there was already a bit of nail peeking out from under the nail polish which isn't a good sign as it only means that it won't last as long. There was also no major duo-chrome-ing going on either so that was another downfall considering the promo shots made the polishes look incredible. I also noticed how the polish is pretty similar to Barry M 'Racing Green' but the Models Own version is a touch darker.
Overall, I have to admit that I'm not that moved by the nail polish at all and probably wouldn't have bought it if it didn't come with two other shades from the same collection. Models Own nail polishes usually perform really well and I've got quite a few to show for it but the Beetlejuice collection fell completely flat for me. There are other brands out there that do duo-chrome perfectly but Models Own just isn't one of them. Harsh, but true.
What do you think? Did you buy any of the Models Own Beetlejuice collection or are metallic duo-chromes just not for you? Let me know!
Until next time...
