Models Own Festival Collection - Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Thursday, 23 April 2015

This year Models Own have been killing it on the nail front (but what's new) with the release of 30 new colours already and 5 more just around the corner! Check back next week to see what I'm talking about. Today I have the Festival Collection for you to drool over.

Models Own Festival Collection Nail Polishes

I get very excited when any brights/neons are released (I get excited when ANY polish is released really) from Models Own as they are always incredible quality. The new Festival collection is no exception, the 4 cremes and 1 glitter polishes make up what is a larger collection of products (see below) which are perfect for helping you stand out from the crowd at festivals.

If you're off to a festival and fancy making a statement beauty look, I suggest you pack some of these products in with your tent, after all who hasn't thought about dying their hair pink. I know I have many times but can't because I'm a boring adult and there's rules about that kind of thing when you're a teacher!

As much as I love the neon hair sprays and metallic face paints, I have no festivals planned in the near future, but I may buy these products for my niece and nephew (both under 10) and have a mini festival party in the garden come the summer holiday, followed by a water fight!

First up is Green Fields, a bold green grass creme. This is the second bright green released by Models Own this year and I am already becoming a firm fan of the shade. I used 2 coats of this polish and Hypergel topcoat for the swatch below.

Blue Skies is a bright cyan blue, ah how I love you! I used 2 coats again with Hypergel topcoat.

Purple Bandana is such a unique shade, it's what I'd call a bright pinky orchid (with me?). I used 2 coats and Hypergel topcoat for the swatch below.

Pink Wellies is a neon pink and it's perfect! I used 2 coats and Hypergel topcoat for the swatches below.

Colour Explosion is a mix of various sized, yellow, blue, peach and silver holo hexs glitters in a clear base. The glitters do need a little help onto the nail. I would suggest the sponging trick to really get a good coverage. I used 2 coats for the swatches below.

Overall I can not fault this collection, the formula is incredibly pigmented, smooth to apply and dries reasonably quickly (if using thin coats). The only improvement I can think of would be if Models Own used the flat brushes, like those seen in the Diamond Luxe collection.

Can I take a moment to express my love for the packaging ... it's perfect for summer and I honestly wish I could get a job at Models Own thinking up and creating new collections.

  1. Love these swatches! The shades are so fun for summer. We may be going to Lovebox so may have to do some neon tribals with these shades. Love your idea of a garden festival though! Oh and we're so excited to see the five other new shades soon. Emma & Jo xx

    1. Ooh tribal nails with these colours would look amazing. I can't wait to see your swatches!

      The other new shades look stunning, although I think this collection beats it! Vicky x

    1. Thanks hun, I was beginning to hate my nail shape, the edges kept breaking and my thyroid is making them so weak. I just needed a change. Plus I don't like long squares any more. I just needed a fresh start.

  3. I wasn't sure about this collection when I saw the bottles, they looked okay but didn't jump out at me but seeing these swatches REALLY makes me want to buy them! I definitely need these colours in my life LOL

    1. I was the same, I umm'd and ahhh'd for ages but once I had them I was so glad. I hope you get them and love them as much as I do, and I am glad I could help you make that decision xx
