Models Own Glitterball Range

I was so excited to try out the new Glitterball and Wonderland polishes from Models Own. Boots online decided to send me two bottles of Boogie Nights instead of sending that and Hot Stuff and missed Southern Lights off my order, which is fairly annoying but will be sorted tomorrow hopefully.

Here are the details of the polishes over a black nail varnish:

Models Own Glitterball Range

Dancing Queen (Glitterball) clear base with GLITTER. teeny tiny gold; gold, blue and green small hex; tiny gold circular; iridescent silver diamond-shaped; and irregular shards of blue, green and gold.

Disco Inferno (Glitterball) clear base with GLITTER. Teeny tiny orange; small green hex; medium sized gold hex; iridescent square; and irregular shaped gold.

Boogie Nights (Glitterball) clear base with GLITTER. Teeny tiny pink; small blue and purple hex; irregular iridescent lilac.

Blizzard (Wonderland) clear base with GLITTER. Teeny tiny silver; small silver, green and gold hex; small iridescent squares.

Snowflakes (Wonderland) clear base with iridescent green/blue/gold irregular shards.

I LOVE THEM ALL.

I ran out of fingers for swatching so will be doing the rest next week! They are all beautiful though and I’m so glad I ordered them. You can buy them HERE. Which of the Models Own Glitterball Wonderland range is your favourite?

Yes, I am *still* ploughing through the Collection 2000 nail art competition prize, they seem to be never ending. I think I’ve liked every single colour I won so far and this one is no exception.

Nails Inc’s new special effects ‘Sprinkles’ collection is inspired by baking, more specifically cake decoration. There are 4 in the range and I was at the counter for AGES trying to pick which one to get. But this one kept catching my eye more than the others.

A creamy blue sheer base with densely-packed baby blue, baby pink and silver mini glitters: this is a jelly sandwich manicure in one product! In the close up photos, you can see the first layer of glitter peeking out through the second layer of sheer base. I am in love.

The glitter goes on well, you don’t have to place the glitter in bald spots. And this is 2 coats of glitter, so you can see how well it layers.

The polish dries slightly matte, which I like. But I added a generous layer of top coat as it is a bit gritty when dry. I am happy to put up with that though as it looks just like frosting on cupcakes…so pretty.

I am going to have to get the other 3 in the collection as I can’t get enough!

This is another lovely Collection 2000 polish that I didn’t think I was going to like…but that has proved me wrong. Blue polish isn’t one of my favourites. I don’t know why I just don’t ever feel drawn towards blue so I wasn’t particularly excited about trying this. But this is an interesting cornflower blue with a slight purple tint that gives it something extra.

Collection 2000 is perfect in 2 coats, and has quite a shiny finish but these photos show the manicure topped with Seche Vite.

(EDIT Feb ’16: It looks like this nail polish is no longer available but you can see the current nail varnish range HERE)

SWATCH: Collection 2000 ‘All That Jazz (50)’

I am not usually a big fan of silver nail varnish as I think it looks a bit… teenage. But this surprised me. It has an almost foil-like finish and has a hint of purple mixed in with the silver that makes it a bit more grown up and classy.

Like all Collection 2000 polishes, this had full coverage in 2 coats and dried really quickly.
