Models Own Colour Chrome

Chrome Indigo, Chrome Mauve, Chrome Cerise, Chrome Olive, Chrome Rose
Look at the finish on these!  Models Own's latest collection is called Colour Chrome, and it's supposed to give a liquid metal, chromed finish.  It absolutely delivers - each shade is beautifully metallic in a matte, glowing finish.  I've never seen anything quite like these shades - they're opaque in two coats and are the closest thing to a true chrome finish I've ever seen.

Unfortunately, that glorious chrome-ness comes at a price - your nails need to be in great condition, or every ridge and bump will show up, and as gorgeous as they are, you have to think of them as a one-night stand rather than a long term relationship.  Because the finish looks best without top coat, I've struggled to get more than a couple of days wear out of them before chips and tipwear sets in.

Small price to pay for a gorgeous finish, though, particularly for a big night out.  And talking of small prices, the Colour Chrome polishes cost just £4.99 each.  One thing to bear in mind is that the bottles are wrapped in chrome foil, so you can't really get any idea of the shades from the bottles - look up swatches online before you commit.  Find them now at Models Own's bottleshops, and online at their website.
