Review: Models Own Beetlejuice – Golden Green

Evening ladies! Tonight I bring you a swatch of a Models Own polish from their Beetlejuice collection. Golden Green was delivered to me at the end of last week in a trio along with Pinky Brown and Emerald Black from ASOS, and I’ve been really looking forward to trying this one out.

The polish has such a lovely consistency, however I did have issues with it at first as there was a lot of polish that was hiding in the cap and as soon as the brush touched my nail, the polish careered down the brush and became a lake on my thumb. After a few bits of kitchen roll and a second base coat, I was ready to try again.

The polish definitely needed two coats, but it dried pretty quickly (but not too quick for the half-dry-drag) and I think the final colour is absolutely lovely!

Review: Models Own Beetlejuice – Purple Blue

Today’s review comes to you courtesy of my boyfriend. A few nights ago we met at a restaurant after work and he presented me with two nail polishes, one of them being Models Own Beetlejuice in Purple Blue. You can read what else he got me here.

When looking at this colour in the bottle it shimmers a mixture of blue, red and gold with a little bit of purple scattered here and there which instantly drew me to it as I have a real thing for polishes that change colour when moved at the moment. I now own four colours from the Beetlejuice collection, and I was in Boots yesterday trying to tell myself that I don’t need the new Indian Ocean one.

The application of this nail polish is really lovely. It is not too thick, but not too thin. Also, it doesn’t dry too quickly so you don’t get that annoying polish drag across the nail when you go over a bit you’ve already done. The polish looked very brown when I had finished the first coat, but after the second coat it really did look very special indeed. The photos show two coats of Purple Blue with a topcoat of Sally Hansen Instant-Dri. You can click them to make them big!
