say hello to the latest (and rather swanky) collection from models own, the diamond luxe range is it's most grown up release to date! complete with real diamond dust and gold capped bottles you might be fooled into thinking these would be more expensive.. fear not these are going on sale just shy of the usual £5.


now I'm not a shimmery polish kinda gal so I wasn't sure how much I'd gel with this release but actually the polishes are very subtle! this isn't a disco ball glitter finish instead it's an almost holographic sheen when they catch the light and the formula is very opaque so for 4 of the 5 I swatched you can just get away with one thicker coat.

models own diamond luxe collection*

from left to right is:

carat coral | this is a lovely vivid coral orange shade.
emerald green | this is a lovely bright colour and the finish was pretty perfect with one coat.
trillion taupe | despite the slight shimmer one you could still wear to work.
pear purple | a pretty pastel lilac purple.
princess pink | barbie in a bottle, a little to girlie for me!

the formula feels slightly rougher than normal due to the glittery content and isn't as shiny as say their hyper gel range so I've worn mine with topcoat as I like a high shine finish. the princess pink was the only polish that needed two coats and I found this one dried more 'lumpy' than the others (perhaps due to the extra layer.)

if you're looking for some more glam nails than these might be one to check out, available online  at models own from the 19th and in superdrug stores from the 24th.

do you like the sound of these?

back soon

  9. These are stunning colors, though a little more summery than I'm going for at the moment.
