My first Models Own polishes!





I'm so excited to share my first 3 Models Own polishes from the Beetle Juice collection! I bought Purple Blue (left) and Emerald Black (middle) from Fingers Polish Mania.  I also purchased Aqua Violet (right) from a seller on Ebay. I really wish Models Own was more available here in the US. I did check out their website and saw that they have international shipping, so I may look into that a bit more. These polishes have a great formula and on the nail wheels, I only applied 2 coats. I love the shimmers that appear in these polishes. I've seen a few fellow bloggers with Models Own polishes and have always been curious about this brand. Any thoughts on the Models Own polishes?

  9. Nice! I don't have any models own, but I want some! Have you tried Harlow & Co? They sell Models Own and a lot of other international and hard to find polishes. They're in Canada but their shipping may be cheaper than buying directly from Models Own.

  18. I love dark shades on nails. They look very vampy and edgy.

  20. I can't attest to the MO quality but when the Beetlejuice collection first came out I was in love when I saw some swatches of them but ever since those first swatches that had some INCREDIBLE duochrome-iness (yes, that's a technical term, haha) going on I have never seen that same effect again and they disappoint me :( I planned on shelling out the $40-50 on Harlow and Co. for the entire collection but now I'm so glad I didn't. I think they're pretty... but they duochrome leaves a lot to be desired. Darn. I'm on the search for some serious color-shifting goodness! :)

    1. You know, I was really looking forward to the "duochrome-iness" (lol!) but I was a little disappointed that the effect wasn't as great. It looks so cool in the bottle!! But swatched, not so much :/ So I absolutely agree with you!! :)

  21. Emerald Black is such a pretty color. One of my BFF is moving to Europe in the summer so I'm going to be bugging her all the time to send me stuff now. LOL!
