Models Own: Firework Nails

I’m not quite sure how it happened, but Bonfire Night is practically around the corner. Soon the sky will be filled with extravagant lights, while the audience looking on will be joining in with collective ‘oooohs and ahhhhs’. Not a brand to ignore an occasion or buck a trend, Models Own have their very own collection of firework inspired nail varnishes. Shades include the firey Catherine Wheel, bold blue Banger and bright red Rocket, all of which have varying shapes and sizes of glitter held in a transparent polish. These can be worn alone or over a colour polish for depth and drama, but I personally love to wear them over a pale or neutral shade to really make the glitter pop. Unlike a lot of pretty naff glitter polishes, the saturation of glitter is strong; this provides a really strong result in only one or two coats, without the need to place each strand of detail individually. My personal favourite is Catherine Wheel, a golden topcoat with just a hint of firey orange and red, which leaves delicate sprinkles on the nail that look fab over a subtle base colour. Most importantly, these don’t flake or peel off easily but are still pretty quick to remove with nail varnish remover… Sparkly nails without the faff? An absolute winner, fireworks night or any night where you need some glitz.

The Models Own ‘Firework’ collection is available now in Boots stores and online priced £5.00 each. You can grab all five variants for £20.00.

    You can never have too much sparkle and these are really pretty. My favourite is the Rocket – would look lovely on some autumn shades :). Xx
