Last month I shared the new Models Own Colour Chrome Liquid Metal Effect Collection, which had more than a few of you excited! You can check out my full review here, but it's safe to say I'm still smitten with the new collection; lasting 11 days chip-free, I am super impressed with the formula and beautiful shades. On a roll with another gorgeous new release, Models Own have released a gorgeous new array of shades to the pre-existing Hypergel line.

10 new spring ready shades have been added to the range, including Powder Blue, Long Beach Peach, Paradise Pink, Purple Orchid, Tropical Green, Midsummer Mauve, Prude Nude, Caribbean Crush, Persian Pink and Bermuda Blue. Designed with a gel formula that works to mimic the look and feel of a gel manicure without the need for UV curing, they have a lovely glossy finish. The finish of these polishes is pretty darn lovely, so you don't necessarily need a top coat - although I always like to use a top coat to make my polishes last as long as possible. The formula is a touch thicker than most Models Own and standard polishes, a self-levelling gel which gives a slightly raised effect with no streaking or dragging.

The colour pay-off for these polishes is so, so good. I've been giving Powder Blue*, Long Beach Peach*, Paradise Pink*, Purple Orchid* and Tropical Green* a try over the past week (multi-coloured fingers and toes right now!), and found each applied really well. Purple Orchid needed 3 coats for the perfect opaque finish, but the other shades all had a lovely opaque colour with just two coats. I find Models Own polishes last a long time chip-free, and having tried the Hypergel range before I'm expecting these to last just as well too.

At a bargain budget-friendly £4.99 for a 14ml bottle, you can pick up the new Hypergel shades from Superdrug, where they are currently on 3 for 2 offer!
