Seventeen Rock Hard Nail Effects in Grey
Okay, I admit it – My name is Lex and I am a textured nail-a-holic. I can’t stop. They are everywhere at the moment and I can’t stop.
Seventeen (with their new branding, which I LOVE) do excellent nail polishes – great colours, keep up with the trends, long lasting. These are no exception. These are slightly grittier than the Barry M textured polishes and Seventeen have gone with edgier colours (grey, black and red rather than pastels).
I still love them. I still can’t stop touching them. I hope these new finishes stay around as they are the most interesting thing to happen to nail varnish in ages!

Model’s Own ‘Beetlejuice Purple Blue’
I finally have internet again and have a lot to catch up with. The first in a big batch is Model’s Own ‘Beetlejuice Purple Blue’. I waited for ages for the Beetlejuice collection to come out and was so excited to see them…and was then really underwhelmed. I was expecting really pretty duochrome polishes and they didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Don’t get me wrong, they are pretty but…I wasn’t thrilled with them.
This one is a purple blue (ummm, obviously Lex) and as you can see from the last picture, in artificial light it is quite dark navy and a bit blah. The purple and neon blue tones come through better in natural light and do make it quite an interesting polish. The finish does look quite gritty in these pictures and that does come across in person as well, which I hate.
However, I’ve been mainly using it for adding depth to galaxy nails (which it’s perfect for!), rather than as a stand alone colour for a full mani.
If you’re a bigger fan than me, you can buy it HERE.
How did you feel about this collection? I was pretty gutted that I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to. Too bad, too sad!
