When Models Own released their Beetle Juice Collection, I wasn’t too sure. I ummed and ahhed, until, being the nail polish whore that I am, decided I had to have them – at which point the whole set was out of stock…. so I waited…. and waited… and here it is!
All of the colours have so many different dimensions to them that I have had to photograph them more than once to show you!
I’ll add them in the order of the photo above. First up is Emerald Black. I thought this would be my least favourite of the collection but it’s definitely one of the best in my books.
Most nail polishes that are dark green or purples tend to be black, or at least go black in some lights. This doesn’t at all, it’s always green, and that’s why I love it. It’s a really dark colour with the teeniest flecks of green micro-glitter in it. Sometimes it looks racing green, and sometimes teal. I’ve added a close up of one of my nails to demonstrate.
Pinky Brown is quite foil-like once it’s on the nails. The pink is a raspberry purple shade, while the brown varies from golden to a lovely chestnut colour. It’s one of the most multi-tonal of the whole collection.
Golden Green is exactly that – gold and green, except the gold was more of a green-tinged yellow.
I wasn’t keen on this to be honest – a bit too ‘snotty’, so I tried some Barry M Instant Effects crackle polish over the top, and voila – I loved it!
My other favourite from the Beetle Juice collection is Aqua Violet. It’s fairly metallic and is a true aqua blue colour. As you move your nails you see the most gorgeous soft purple colour. The two shades compliment each other perfectly.
Lastly was Purple Blue. I loved the colour that it went in the light, but the ‘resting’ colour of it I wasn’t keen on. It looked like a browny purple with flecks of aqua glitter. In the light, it was like a petrol spill – multi coloured beautifulness.
So finally, better late than never – my swatch pics of the Models Own Beetle Juice Collection. I hope it has been useful to some.
What do you think of the collection?
