Models Own ~ Peacock Green

Models Own ~ Peacock Green A Peacocky Teal shimmer

and


H & M ~ Confetti Kisses

Clear base packed with multisized silver glitter


The formula of the Models Own polish was somewhat on the runny side, so even though I found it to be very easy to apply, it kept flooding my cuticles, and I haven’t quite got the technique of how to completely clean that up just yet.

This is a very opaque polish, so one coat could have done the job just fine. But I wanted the extra richness and depth, so I applied two coats (no top coat yet):


And then I added a coat of H&M’s ‘Confetti Kisses’, which is *so* easy to work with. Here is the result, with one coat of Poshé top coat:


Drying time on Confetti Kisses was a bit on the slow side, but it was definitely worth waiting for!

  9. I've got a couple of the Beetle Juices as well, but haven't had the time to try them yet. I hope they're a little less runny.
