One of my most worn shades this summer has to be Coral Reef from Models Own. Not another coral polish I hear you scream! Well this is different to the other coral shades in my collection as it’s more red toned than my usual pink toned coral polishes which makes a welcome change and gives me a bit more variety when choosing which one to wear. I’ll be wearing this on my toes for my birthday night out as it’ll go lovely with the coral dress I’m wearing from Simply Be. Coral Reef makes the perfect pedicure colour.
As with all Models Own polishes, the drying time is so quick. I always do two coats to ensure an even application and by the time I’ve painted one hand, then painted the next, my first hand is dry for me to apply my second coat. Absolutely fantastic. Coral Reef has a smooth consistency that provides an even application. As well as being a red toned coral and quite a bright one at that, it is very creamy looking which is great for a bright polish as I often find them to look thin and watery but not this one! The packaging of Models Own polishes is spot on too- the brush is just the right size, the lid fits perfectly into my hand with ease to apply the polish and the design of the 14ml bottles look smart on my dressing table.
I find Models Own nail polish to last about 4-5 days chip free on my nails and easily 7 days with my favourite top coat. This polish is easy to remove too and as long as you’ve used a good base coat it wont stain your nails either.
Models Own polishes are available to buy on their website and at Boots online and in store for around £5 each but they’re always having multi buy offers on. Models Own are now newly available in Selfridges and will soon be gracing the shelves of Harvey Nichols too, exciting stuff… and for all you international readers, fear not as Modesl Own are going global! Their award nominated Bottleshop will be opening up in key locations in the UAE like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and also in Bangkok, Taiwan, Korea, China, Panama, Iran and Kuwait!
