Models Own Colour Chrome Autumn/Winter 2015

Thursday, 18 February 2016

Back at the end of January Models Own had a 50% off sale (heavenly) and I decided to whip up a wish list to help narrow down what to buy. It took me a little while to make a note of all the colours I didn't have (that I absolutely, couldn't live without) and in the end I had a mammoth 43 to choose from. As you can imagine I was very tempted to buy the lot, however even at half price that would have cost a small fortune.

In the end I purchased 20 beautiful colours and amongst them was the Autumn/Winter 2015 colour chromes. I loved the original 10 colours they released (post here) so knew I would love these too.

Before I show you swatches of these colours I must mention that they are a nightmare if you have nothing short of silky smooth nails. They show every lump, bump and niggle on your nail surface which can ruin the finish. I generally don't use a basecoat with these but I did give my nail surface a very light buff and a good oiling the morning before I did these swatches.

Chrome Grey is a dark gun metal grey. It applies like a dream and needed only 2 coats.

Chrome Red is a deep raspberry red with a slight silver shimmer to it. I needed 2 coats for this swatch.

Chrome Copper is slightly different to the others in that the formula appeared very runny and less chrome like (at least to me anyway). I needed only 2 coats.

Chrome Turquoise is very badly named, this is a gorgeous colour but not turquoise at all. It is however so pretty and brighter than Chrome Blue. I needed 2 coats.

Lastly we have Chrome Pearl, this colour is nothing like the bottle would have you believe. When I saw the bottle I was expecting something amazing, however it hasn't got any pink/purple tones in it at all and appears to be a lighter almost bleached version of Chrome Silver. It is a lovely colour but the bottle is so misleading that I can't help but be a little disappointed. I needed 3 coats of this.

So there we are. I think out of these new additions Chrome Red and Grey are my faves.

I couldn't let this opportunity pass without creating a collage showing all 15 colours together. For previous colour names see my original Colour Chrome post.
