If there is one type of nail polish that I an obsessed with, its glitter. I have always been a fan of glitter nails whether its on every nail or as an accent. With more and more brands releasing glitter polishes with different textures and finishes, I knew I needed to try out some new ones. Models Own have a Glitter Gel collection which includes five different shades and I have been trying out two of them.
Swatched: Sheer Sparkle & Red Carpet
The packaging is almost identical to the Hyper Gel polishes but with glitter accents instead to be able to tell the different between the two. Each bottle has 14ml of polish and will cost you just £4.99 a bottle. The two shades I have would have been perfect for the holiday season, Sheer Sparkle is a gold glitter and as the name suggests it is on the sheerer side but is definitely buildable. Red Carpet is a stunning pink toned red with shimmer running through it. There are three other shades in the collection, a black with glitter, a gorgeous baby pink glitter and brighter pink glitter.
I was expecting these polishes to have a slightly bumpy texture to them but they dry to a very smooth finish. Just like the Hyper Gels, the brush on each of the polishes is wonderful, wide enough to be able to cover the whole nail but not so big that polish ends up all over the skin around the nails. These polishes applied so smoothly and glided onto the nails with only a thin coat needed. Sheer Sparkle is on the sheerer side as the name would suggest however it is differently buildable, the swatches above are only two coats. Red Carpet is very opaque and only needed two coats to get the colour that was in the bottle.
Just like the Hyper Gels, they are incredibly glossy and the shininess lasts until you remove the polish. I love the sheen that the shimmer in Red Carpet gives the nails too! These polishes last well on the nails, after around three days I still had no chipping, which is great for my nails especially without base and top coat! Even when the polish did start to chip it was only minimal and wasn't too noticeable!
The Models Own Glitter Gels retail for £4.99 each and are available from the Models Own website - link.
