NOTD: Models Own Top Turquoise

I was tempted into ordering five polishes from Models Own the other week.  When they arrived, I was slightly surprised to see that the colours were somewhat different to how they were portrayed on the website.  This rather pretty spearminty turquoise cream was in the pastels section - but in real life it's rather bright.

Application is okay; the polishes are quite thick, and require fast work and at least two coats to get a good smooth finish.  The colour is beautiful; bright and clean, although it did require a good coat of Seche Vite to get a glossy finish.

Wear wasn't so fantastic.  One day after application, I had to touch up a few small chips and reseal the edges of my nails.  After another day, my nails were looking decidedly ragged.  So, not one to go for if you don't want to repaint every couple of days.

If you'd like to try it out for yourself, it's available from the Models Own website for a budget friendly £5.

  1. Ew maybe the Models Own people were on crack when they were categorising shades :| I really like this colour, even if the formula isnt particularly long-lasting
