Jade Sparkle!

It's official. I love it when boots have 3 for 2 on make-up! I ventured into the Ipswich branch on Friday and came away with 6 new nail polishes! I originally wanted the Barry M pink crackle and a Models Own polish, but when I saw the 3 for 2 I think I went a bit crazy.. I got 3 Models Own polishes, Jade Stone, Blooboo and Juicy Jules. 

I wanted to get more but I figured that I love all of the pastel ones so I might as well buy the set on the website! Jade Stone is very similar to my Barry M Mint Green, but the polish itself is so creamy it covers completely in two coats to a lovely even consistency! Even though I have a similar colour I am very pleased that I picked this one up! Blooboo I just couldn't put down once I had picked it up, the colour is so pretty and the subtle blue shimmer within gives it a lustrous quality! I adore this colour and I can't wait to use it! I got Juicy Jules because I am such a sucker for holographic glitters.. and I am so pleased that I chose to get it! The glitter particles are so densely packed inside that one application over a base colour gives an amazing glitter finish! It's truly beautiful and I can't stop staring at it in the sunshine!

I got my Barry M pink crackle and figured that I might as well pick up another 2 of their colours for an extra £2.99! I got Shocking Pink and Pink Flamingo. The former my friend Carrie got for her birthday and it's a really bright hot pink that almost glows! The latter I have had my eye on for a while, it's a lovely pink with a slightly orangey tone to it. Considering I don't really do pink it's quite something for me to come away with 3 new pink polishes! 

I saw my best friend Laura that night at her sister Beth's flat. I showed Beth my new polishes and did her nails for her! She adores pink so I did a Shocking Pink base with the pink crackle over the top and pink glitter to finish! I think it looks really good and she absolutely loves it! 

I really wanted to try out my new Models Own polishes, so I did a base coat in Jade Stone and covered it in a coat of Juicy Jules. It is stunning. Really. I was thinking about painting flowers on top but I love it so much that I didn't want to cover any of the glitter! It's going to be really hard for me to resist putting a coat of Juicy Jules over every polish that I use from now on! I am so hooked on Models Own now. How did I live without this brand before? I'm back at uni now and the Winchester Boots doesn't stock it so I have a feeling I will be making use of the website an awful lot!

Anyway, you should totally go to boots whilst the 3 for 2 is on and grab yourself some Models Own polishes! 3 for £10 is an absolute steal given the quality and colours of these polishes. You will not regret it!
