NOTD - Models Own Pro, Midnight Blue

Models Own Pro in Midnight Blue is a black-based shade with a shimmer of multicoloured particles that are almost large enough to be called microglitter, but not quite. It's got a real oil-slick duochrome effect that I was instantly taken by when I saw in on the stand in Boots.

Unfortunately the multi-tonal effect was tricky to capture here, and it looks more like a straight-up metallic black. But I promise, it is there!

This is three coats. The base is a jelly-type consistency, which helps with application. It applies smooth and streak-free.

Here you can see some of the blue-ish particles in the bottle. There are purple and aqua shades in there too.

Finally an over-exposed close-up of the bottle, showing some of the colours that translate onto the nail, especially in bright sunlight.

I really enjoyed wearing this polish, and was constantly turning my hand this way and that to admire the duochrome effect. It's just a shame I couldn't capture it on camera. Wear was fairly average - I have to say, not noticeably better than with the regular Models Own line, but still a respectable 3 days before chipping.

Models Own Pro shades are available in Boots, costing £8 per 15ml.
