new: models own speckled egg collection

models own are releasing yet another new collection.. I'd just overcome my excitement over their hyper gel range when this one arrived... wowza! the speckled egg launch has spring written all over it, think mini eggs but for your fingers.. I've tried this style of polish before in the form of illamasqua freckles so I was interested to see how the models own version applied.

first up is their pastel pink called 'dove' it applies really well (this is two coats shown here) and dries quickly. I haven't added a top coat here but I usually would as I love my nails to be glossy!

next up is their cornflower blue shade which goes by the name 'duck' this is the shiniest of the three I've tried and the pigment is the strongest.

finally I've tried the lilac 'swan' this is lovely and again takes two coats for full effect. I can't decide if this or the pink is my favourite!

these polishes look great blended to created a simple gradient effect too, I've dabbed some of the pink onto a lilac base in the photo above.

even though this 'speckled' effect polish isn't new I'm seriously impressed with the models own version, it doesn't chip easily, dries quickly and at just £5 a bottle is almost a third of the price of other similar polishes on the market.. I don't know about you but that's certainly good enough for me.

these are set to launch on the models own site and superdrug stores march 12th and boots stores nationwide from the 19th.

what do you think.. would you wear this type of polish?

    These polishes do look super pretty, I missed out on the Illamasqua ones due to the price putting me off. These are so much cheaper though :)
