model's own sparkle set of 3

Last Saturday I received a late birthday present off two of my oldest friends that included a bracelet and these three nail varnishes. I was so excited to try these nail varnishes out because I've only ever heard good things about Model's Own polishes. I would just like to apologise before hand for the colouring of the photo's. I was losing light pretty quickly whilst taking them so the pictures darken slightly as the post goes on. I hope you enjoy it though!

Now for the review!

To start with all three colours are gorgeous! Absolutely lovely!

But Pink Fizz and Juicy Jules were definitely the most pigmented nail varnishes from the pack and only needed a couple of coats to get a thick, opaque colour whereas usually with sparkly nail varnishes, you either need a bottom coat of a different colour or many layers but not with these ones. Thunder & Lightning, however, didn't produce a very strong colour and I think if I wanted a colour similar to that in the bottle I'd have to do more layers.

On the other hand, Thunder & Lightning did prove to be easier to remove. I found that Pink Fizz and Juicy Jules involved 'scratching' the nail varnish off which is annoying when most nail varnishes just involve a scrub and it's done. Also, when removing the first two, glitter went everywhere! And when I say everywhere I mean it! It was all over my fingers and on my lap which is a bit of a downer on such lovely nail varnishes.

Overall though, I do really recommend these polishes and I think when Pink Fizz and Juicy Jules run out I'll buy them again. I think they'd look great as a thin layer over other colours too. I'm not sure about Thunder & Lighting but I think I'll give it a few more chances before I completely disregard it.

Also, just thought I would share with you, a few colours from the Models Own website that I would really love to add to my collection:
Strangely all pastels! I would also love the black nail art pen! Anyway, I hope you've found this review useful and also find some colours you like from the Models Own's HUGE collection!
