NOTD: Models Own Artstix in Utopia Ocean

The nail polish look I’ve been wearing this week is from my favourite nail polish brand, Models Own.  This is another one of their new Artstix polishes in Utopia Ocean which combines the GORGEOUS Utopia that I’ve talked about previously on my blog and the beautiful Indian Ocean polish.  I’ve written more about the concept behind the Artstix polishes in this post where I featured the Pink Stuff Artstix polish so check that out if you want to read more about Artstix themselves but for today I’ll be sharing my experiences with the gorgeous Utopia Ocean.

Models Own Artstix in Utopia Ocean

To start, I used the ‘Paint It’ shade in Utopia to paint two coats onto my nails.  Utopia is a grey lilac pastel shade that is gorgeously creamy.  It is opaque after two coats.  The application is smooth, even and it dries pretty quickly, as do all Models Own nail polishes.

The I jumped on in there with the ‘Cover It’ shade in Indian Ocean.  This multi-tonal shade was initially released in the Beetlejuice collection.  It is a beautiful iridescent blue polish with pearlescent soft pink undertones.  Again, it’s a smooth application that dries pretty quickly.

I found that the application of the Indian Ocean polish really transformed the Utopia polish into something even more special.  It looks gorgeous on the nails.  I’ve applied it to all of my nails but it could be used on top of just one nail to create a feature nail.

I wasn’t planning on painting my nails this week as I’m getting a manicure at the weekend but I’m so pleased I did.  This polish looks super pretty.

All that’s left for me to do now is a quick tidy up around my nails to neaten up the look.  To do this I tend to soak my hands in warm water either in the sink, but more often when I’m in the shower or bath, and I find that any excess polish comes off my skin naturally with ease

The Artstix Duo Polishes are available for £6 from Boots stores and direct from the Models Own website.
