I’m not a huge lover of Models Own, mainly because i’ve never really purchased any of their nail varnishes for myself but when I saw that they were releasing their Polish For Tans Collection I just knew I had to pick up a few shades for summer.
This collection is designed to highlight the skin with the use of vibrant tones, so it works similarly to how white nail varnish works when worn with a tan. As I fake tan a fair bit in the summer, i’m always looking for a way to spruce up my tan and make it a little more noticeable.
Out of the collection I own, four of the five shades but I wanted to talk about my two favourites as these are the shades that i’ve got the most wear out of.
First up is Models Own Sun Hat* (£4.99), which is a lovely vibrant pink shade. I’ve been wearing this on my toes as it looks so good with a pair of white sandals, the two combined really make a tan pop. The second shade i’ve been loving is Models Own Beach Bag (£4.99), which is a vibrant orangey coral shade that is to die for. I’ve been looking for a shade like this for such a long time. I love wearing this shade on my finger nails as it really does stand out and it’s a perfect summer shade. I also own the shades Flip Flop and Bikini but I haven’t really worn them enough to comment just yet.
As for the formula, I find two coats is enough to get a good coverage and with a top coat it stops it flaking off within two days. Overall it lasts a few days tops, but usually by then i’ll have wanted to switch up the shades.
Have you tried out any Models Own polishes? What shades should I try?
