NOTD - Models Own Indian Ocean vs Essie Lapis of Luxury

Indian Ocean is one of the Models Own Beetlejuice duochromes. It's been knocking around for a while now, and I scoured Boots branches for it on release, but this was the first time I got around to wearing it. Following the advice given on other blogs, I layered it with a sky blue shade, Essie's Lapis of Luxury. The reason being that this polish is so very sheer that it's only a hair's breadth from being classed as a topcoat. It would have taken about 10 coats to hit opacity otherwise, and with a duochrome this pretty, I don't want the bottle to run out too soon.

A workmate described this as looking "like the belly of a really cool fish", and I think she's captured it perfectly. It has small glass-fleck particles - it's not quite a pearl or metallic finish, the particles are too big - that shift from pink to yellow. 

I wore this polish to the Olympics. It's got blue, and red (ish), and the white's kind of implicit, so it's maybe a patriotic manicure, just about?

Models Own is currently on a buy-one-get-one-half-price deal at Boots. You can buy Indian Ocean for £5

  1. This is the second time I have seen this polish today. It is so nice. I am going to have to stay away from Boots to stop myself from buying it!
