Models own has been continuously teasing me with their immense sale a few weeks ago on Instagram. At a grand total of 50% off it was very difficult to resist. I had seen so much great stuff models own offered in boots but I could never really afford to fork out on them. Now that it was 50% off, it was a whole different ball game. As I was expecting a visit from the uk, I knew I could order it and be reunited with it very quickly.
And alas, it has arrived!
I felt like everything from start to finish was so beautifully done. I was particularly impressed with the packaging and felt like so much time and effort was made into my order. Especially as it was a sale item, I expected to just show up in a box wrapped with bubble wrap. This exceeded my expectations by miles. And it wasnt just the box. Once I opened it, everything I ordered was neatly packaged
Once the packaging was removed this is what I got. I bought four nail art pens which in my opinion are the most basic and essential colours. I already have black and white from Primark but they are so gloopy and bad to use that I felt no choice but to invest in better ones, I haven’t used these yet but I will get round to get. I also got a erase pen that I was very intrigued with. Thus far I’ve used cotton buds and they’ve worked okay but I’m hoping the erase pen will simplify the process. Next is a matte top coat. I already own one from rimmel London before they killed the line. However, this one was such a bargain I simply couldn’t resist. Matte top coats are so expensive in the uk yet so cheap in the us where lower quality brands also make them as suppose to just essie in uk. I bought three polishes to try out its different ranges as I actually never owned models own polishes before. You will have to come back and see how I got on with them but here is a swatch for its latest gel polish range in green
I adore this colour. In fact I adore all the gel range colours but I wanted to test how they were like before I invested in the whole range. Frankly I don’t think my natural nails are up for the challenge of normal polishes yet. Since I’ve been using gel, I just can’t seem to get or appreciate any polish that doesn’t have that smooth sheen to it like gel. I loved the colour but I think I will be needing to wear it with a gel topcoat. It is like gel in a way but does not finish like the gel polishes I’ve been using.
