|L-R; Beach Bag // Flip Flop // Shades // Bikini // Sun Hat|
I can’t remember the last time I got so excited over a nail polish launch. For the first time in a long time I had to rush out and buy the entire 5 polishes making up the new Models Own collection, Polish for Tans as I love the look of each of the shades.
The idea behind the colour selection is that they are all neon brights with white mixed in, designed to look fabulous against a tan, and give your tan that bit of a boost. The polishes in the collection are Beach Bag – a gorgeous bright peach, Flip Flop – a neon green, Shades – a hot coral, Bikini – a highlighter yellow, and Sun Hat – a bright pink. As soon as I got them home I put Shades on my toe nails, and Beach Bag on my finger nails, and instantly felt more summery. I do think the fact I was wearing fake tan complimented the colours and while I was wearing it, I had numerous people commenting on how much they liked my nails.

Because of the neon-ness, they do dry quicker than standard nail polishes, which is a bonus – but on the downside this also means (in my case) they tend to chip more quickly too. I’ve noticed that Flip Flop dries to a semi-matt finish, while the rest seem to be slightly glossy. If you prefer a shiny finish, just add a layer of top coat and it will help to lengthen the wear too.
This is a fabulous collection, I can’t wait for the sun to come out so I can wear them more and more and more!
The polishes cost £5 each and are available from Models Own stands and Bottle shops, or online.
