It’s not very often I post about nail polishes here on Tattooed Tealady; although I love a cheeky at-home manicure on a weekly basis, nail polish just doesn't excite me very much. That was until the Models Own Colour Chrome Liquid Metal Effect Collection landed on my doorstep this weekend, finally a nail polish collection to get excited about!
Perfectly on-trend, the new collection includes 10 gorgeous shades with a ridiculously beautiful liquid-metal effect. The shades include Indigo, Mauve, Cerise, Rose, Pink*, Gold*, Silver*, Olive, Green *and Blue*.The bottles for each shade are eye-catching and unique, certainly standing out from the usual Models Own bottles which are usually clear so you can see the shade inside. The Colour Chrome Liquid Metal Effect bottles are completely opaque, each with an intense chrome liquid metal effect finish akin to the shade it houses inside.
I've tried a couple of chrome effect polishes over the years, and I've never been overly impressed with the finish. Like many effect nail polishes, my experience with chrome polishes from other brands has been streaky polishes which chip fairly quickly.
Models Own have completely changed my opinion on chrome effect polishes, with a formula that applies effortlessly to create a true opaque, streak-free colour. Finding it hard to pick between the five gorgeous shades I was kindly sent to try out, my nails are currently like a rainbow using all shades, one on each nail.
I found application to be pretty easy; Gold, Pink, Blue and Green give off a lovely opaque colour in two coats, whilst Silver required an third coat to get the desired finish. With a good base and top coat, I expect these beauties to last chip free for a good few days if the usual Models Own standards are anything to go by – one of the brands which lasts the longest on me!
Costing just £4.99 each, they will be launching on the Models Own website on January 29th, you will also be able to pick up these beauties from UK Models Own Bottleshops from January 31st,, as well as Superdrug online and in-store nationwide from February 11th.
Are you as excited as me about the new Colour Chrome Liquid Metal Effect Collection?!
