Yesterday was my birthday and as far as birthdays go it was a bit of a let-down. Happily, I would write a whole post ranting about the ins and outs of why but I’m trying to refrain from my constant complaining on here! Despite my grievances (does that even make sense?) I did get spoilt and now have the money for a summer wardrobe, expect a haul post next month! I was also treated to what looks like half of Lush so I have loads of reviews in mind which will make a nice change!
Moving back to the point of this post, I went to Boots today and picked up some new nail polishes. I spotted the Models Own polishes on 3 for 2 so decided that today was the day I finally picked some up. I’ve seen quite a few bloggers posting about Models Own, the colours all look gorgeous and everybody seems to love them. However, upon applying ‘Blooboo’ I was not impressed (there’s a surprise). I found the formula really disappointing and hard to work with, being a complete ‘nail art novice’ this is the type of thing that deters me from painting my nails. I just don’t have the patience to try and even out the polish and I simply can’t be doing with that gloopy smudged look all around my cuticles. I also found that the polish had a really strong smell, obviously I accept that nail polishes do smell but this one took the stench to new extremes. Does anybody else find this with Models Own or is it just me being cynical again? Despite all of the above I’m pretty happy with the colour after around two coats and here’s what my nails look like with a layer of Models Own ‘silver smash up’ over the top.
Before I end this post I just wanted to vent some annoyance. People who can not distinguish the difference between ‘to’ and ‘too’ or ‘your’ and ‘you’re’ or ‘there’, ‘their’ and ‘they’re’ or, even more annoyingly, attempt to use ‘intelligent’ language but do so in completely the wrong context should not be allowed on social networking sites.
