Models Own Colour Chrome - Swatches & Review

Sunday, 15 February 2015

PR Sample

I wanted to save this post until Valentines was over, not sure why but it seemed like a great idea when I was planning my posts, so today I bring you Models Own Colour Chromes. I know you've seen them before, I have no doubt you even picked some up in the recent sale (please can we have another one soon Models Own) but I would like you to humour me for a bit, look at my pictures and read until the end. Thank you.

Models Own Colour Chrome Collection

OK, before we move on with this post I have a nail confession I need to get off my chest, I really dislike foil polishes, like really dislike. When this collection was first released, I was more excited by the bottles than what was inside them. If I'm very honest, that hasn't totally changed, but I am loving the polish a lot more. It's saying a huge amount about this collection that I have warmed to foils, it's only a slight thaw, but its monumental as far as I am concerned. I may even use a few after this post goes live!

Application Tips:

  • Firstly I applied a coat of seche vite before swatching these polishes to try and smooth out any bumps on my nail surface. It meant that application was a dream, however I can not guarantee a long wear time, as topcoat on a plain nail usually chips off quickly (for me).
  • Secondly, these polishes dry quickly! If you don't apply them at super speed, the first swipe you put down will have dried slightly by the time you go to even up and then it'll drag and you'll need to start over,
  • Thirdly, make sure there is a good amount of polish on the brush before you apply, because it dries quickly you don't really have time to go back to the bottle to top it up.
  • Lastly, shake the bottle, I applied 1 coat of Rose without shaking and it looked like silver and red streaks. Pretty but not what I wanted.
Onto the polishes:

Chrome Blue is a gorgeous light cyan/sky cross. I used 1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Indigo is a lilac toned deep cornflower blue. I was so surprised with this colour, it's gorgeous on and made my top 4.1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Mauve is a bright amethyst colour. Again I needed only 1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Pink is a very soft pink with lilac undertones. 1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Cerise is bright, bold and beautiful. Clearly this colour has made my top 4, it may even be my overall fave. I used 1 smooth coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Green is a typical green colour. Application was lovely and I needed 1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Olive is a green tinged gold. Its very similar to Chrome Gold but that tiny difference is amazing. This is one of the most unique shades I've seen released this year, across all brands. I know that a lot of people who bought these polishes, tended to admit it from their shopping basket... big mistake. For this is much nicer than Gold and for that it makes my top 4. I used 1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Gold is a bright Gold. I used 1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Rose is undoubtedly gorgeous, it's slightly more coppery than the bottle leads you to believe, but looks like Rose Gold on. I love it. It is probably the most popular from the collection and with good reason. It snaps up my last space in my top 4. I used 1 coat, no topcoat.

Chrome Silver is ... uh well silver. I used 2 coats as it was sheer on the first coat, no topcoat.

So, my 4 faves are Cerise, Indigo, Rose and Olive.

Before I go I thought I would show you a quick comparison of some of the similar colours.

You buy these for £4.99 from Models Own online or Superdrug.

.S. I know a lot of people were interested in their 'Stamping' capabilities, however I am not a fan of stamping at all and so have no interest in them for that. I will however be trying water marble with them.

P.P.S I left all the uneven bits on the swatches and didn't edit them out, even though I was very tempted, as I think that most of you will experience this when applying and I didn't want you thinking they were going to look perfectly smooth.

What are your faves? Will you be buying any or have you already got them? Let me know what you think.

  1. Love these! I didn't think I would be a fan of the foil/metallic effect because I much prefer creamy polishes with no shimmer at all, but I did actually like the ones I bought (Rose & Indigo). After looking at more swatches I wish I'd also got Silver, Gold & Cerise! <3
