Haul: My First Models Own Polishes

As many others I jumped on the 50% off offer from Models Own, and I picked up 6 bottles. Wanted many more but had to limit myself :P I recieved them yesterday, and here they are:

L to R: Top Turquoise, Slate Green and Emerald City
I loved all these 3 colours, not much else to say about them. Pretty pretty pretty! I only wish the glitter in Emerald City was a bit more dense, tried them on a swatch wheel and I lost count on the coats I had to use to make it opaque.

L to R: Beth's Blue, Lemon Sherbet and Fuzzy Peach
Beth's Blue isn't really blue at all in my eyes, more lilac or maybe a pastel lavender, I'm happy though cause it's exactly how I had hoped it would be. Lemon Sherbet is as bright as in the picture, it's fantastic! Come on spring and summer, I want to wear this baby! Fuzzy Peach was alot darker and brighter than I had hoped, not sure if I like it at all at the moment. Had hoped for a more soft pastel'y peach colour, still need to try it on and see how it looks against my skin tone. Worst come to worst I'll just mix in a bunch of white to lighten it up.

After seeing swatches of some of these over at Plane Beauty I'm bummed I didn't pick up Purple Grey instead of Fuzzy Peach. I was looking at it when I was placing my order, I should have googled for swatches before deciding against it! Maybe next time, cause I'm sure I'll be wanting to shop for more Models Own!

You picked out great colors!

Great selection! I think a lot of people expected Fuzzy Peach to be a lot paler, I did too!

Rebecca said...

Purple Grey is definitely worth having!

But it is such a cool tribute to Bulli that I'm willing to look beyond it and think, "That's cool."

The problem appears to be your attention span, not the article. There are plenty of reasons to use Evernote mentioned in the article.

The Crimson Lounge sits behind some ornate doors in the lobby of the Hotel Sax in Chicago. It would be callously gauche to call this a hotel bar, because it is so much more. There are about a dozen little rooms, enclaves, and velvet-curtained grottos that make up a textured complex of rooms that are just waiting around for me to lounge in while drinking something with an absurd name. Thanks again to +Fiona Murphy for hosting our Chicago book party here!
