NOTD: Models Own Fireworks Collection in Sparkler

This utterly glorious polish is Sparkler by Models Own, part of the recently released Fireworks collection.  Like its fellow Fireworks polishes, it's a clear base packed with glitter particles - in this case, the glitter is made up entirely of holographic bars, which catch the light beautifully.

I've applied two coats on top of Cheeky Take Me Chrome, and the two work really well together - the metallic silver of Take Me Chrome complements the bar glitter in Sparkler, and it all looks a bit flat and silver until the light catches it at the right angle - then it bursts with multicoloured sparkle which changes as you watch.  Admittedly, Sparkler suffers from the usual glitter topcoat problems - there's a fair amount of poking and prodding that has to go on to get the bar pieces to lie evenly across the nail.  Totally worth it though - I wore this manicure for almost a whole week with no visible signs of chips or tipwear.

My nails also gathered a huge number of compliments whilst I was wearing Take Me Chrome and Sparkler.  In particular, one of my male, software engineer colleagues said my nails were mesmerising.  Can't do better than that.

You'll find the Models Own Fireworks collection online at the Models Own website, and in their bottleshops and select Boots branches.  Sparkler (and its equally sparkly friends) will cost you a mere £5.
