Inspired by the New York clubs of the 1970’s (and no doubt the shiny trousers from American Apparel everyone went crazy for in 2013,) the latest collection from Models Own is a little bit disco. Consisting of three shimmering shiny shades (pictured) and an additional two glitters (in blue and purple I believe,) these aren’t for the fainthearted. These polishes pack a serious punch and make a statement in-line with John Travolta’s iconic white suit. Although I was pretty dubious when these first landed on my desk, they’re a lot more wearable than I anticipated – in fact, the delicate gold shade is perfect for Autumn and matches any outfit you could possibly pull together.
The texture of the polish is quite matte upon application, but dries to leave a good amount of shine – without being OTT. With two coats you have a true-to-bottle shade, meaning you definitely know what you’re in for. Although the pink wouldn’t be out of place on the Moschino catwalk (it’s very ‘Barbie’ and not my personal favourite,) the green is a great alternative for Autumn; after all, green and berry shades complement eachother perfectly. It’s nice to see a different kind of collection launching just in time for the new season, and Models Own always deliver the unexpected. What do you think of this trio of nail glamour?
The Models Own ‘Disco Pants’ collection launches online from 17th October, priced £4.99 each.
