At long last, i have found the ultimate Barbie pink nail polish: Pink Blush by Models Own.
Ive searched long and hard to find a colour like this and although ive found some gorgeous pinks, they were either too bright, too dark or too much of a pastel shade to what i was looking for. There was a couple of pinks that I thought had that "Barbie" look about them, Models Own Sophie's Pink and Pink Blush, so i thought id wait until the Models Own 50% off sale to purchase them. However before the sale started, I had the chance to read Amy's blog where she wrote about Sophie's Pink by Models Own. I was sooo thankful to Amy for her review and swatches of this nail polish as its actually more of a neon colour and looks different to how it looks in the bottle. Her blog is fab and really helped me to make my mind up when deciding which polish to go for, so when the MO Facebook 50% off sale came around, i took the plunge and purchased Pink Blush in the hopes that it was the shade of pink i was looking for... and it sooo is!
Like most other MO nail polishes, application was smooth, even and streak free. The polish is so well pigmented that i could have left it at one coat but i always do two coats, just incase ive missed any edges or anything. For quite a matte nail polish it does have enough of a shine to it too that meant i didnt need to wear a top coat. Normally id apply one anyway but i was in a rush when i put this on and was quite happy with the results so didnt apply one later.
Pink Blush has so much staying power too- ive had it on for 5 days now and judging by the above photo- its still chip free!
I paid £2.50 for my nail polish as i got it in the MO sale, but usually these polishes retail at £5 on http://www.modelsownit.com/ or from selected Boots stores. They always have fab offers on so you can save some money too.
