Today we have a swatch that I’ve been hanging on to since the weekend.
back in December there is nothing I wanted more than the Models Own Wonderland box set. Unfortunately for me, it was hardly ever in stock. I could have grabbed it back in January, but as Christmas was over, it didn’t feel worth it.
However, I was in Boots when I went back to the UK, trying to replace my broken Gold Rush from the Champagne Box Set (also Models Own), and fell in love with these two. They might be intended to be winter polishes, but the delicate colours seem perfect for spring, too, so I decided to bite the bullet, and grabbed Southern Lights and Northern Lights :
These babies are more glitter than polish! And darn, that holo glitter is hard to photo.
Here’s a first try :
Since the glitter is so packed in there, the formula is really gloopy. I mean, you hardly have any choice! But this is just two coats, no base colour. I am dreading taking these off, but we have some big meetings at work, so I’ll have to get on with it.
Here’s a daylight photo, to help you see the glitter. Excuse the cuticles, it really is impossible not to get this polish everywhere !
The texture is very very gritty, and unlike other glitters, they did take a while to dry. Maybe because the coats were so thick? Anyway, here’s one more photo so you can appreciate the awesomeness of the sparkle !
