I have two pieces of news for you…. First, I have discovered TK Maxx and their amazing nail polish section. I managed to pick up three Models Own polishes for just £5.99!! So cheap! They also have Leighton Denny and Nails Inc amoung others so I can definitely see a return trip coming on soon. Second piece of news, I managed to slice through my thumb nail the other day while making dinner. It hurt so much and now my poor nail is going to take ages to grow back so don’t be surprised if my thumb is missing from photos for the foreseeable future! Anyway, onto this weeks nails….I’m wearing one of my new purchased from TK Maxx, Models Own True Blue. It’s not my favourite polish – I think it looked a bit dull on my nails. It also wore on the tips really quickly. This photo was taken the morning after I applied it and you can already see tip wear so all in all I was a bit disappointed with this one.
This week I decided to try Models Own Indian Ocean over my Maybelline Forever Strong. I only used one coat of Indian Ocean and I love the result – I think it’s the perfect combination. It’s really pretty the way the pink shimmer is picked up in different lights.
This week has been super busy what with moving to Aberdeen and trying to get the flat sorted! Here is a really quick NOTW for you and I promise I will get around to writing some more posts this weekend!
I wanted to try out the Models Own Indian Ocean over a few different colour but even after wearing them for five days or so, I can’t choose my favourite! The blue colour really shows up the pink shimmer well but I actually loved Indian Ocean over the pinks as well.
The colours I used were:
No7 Stay Perfect Stand Back
elf Purple Dream
a pale pink Nails Inc with no name – I think I got it from free with a magazine!
Which combination is your favourite?
I thought I’d try Indian Ocean layered over my Nubar Vogue Vert but I’m not really sure I like the combination. I don’t think the green colour really showed off the blue shimmer from Indian Ocean properly. What do you think?
