Review - Models Own Purple Grey


It's another nail polish review for you today, but it's not actually an Essie one (shock horror!) if you'd believe it; it's a Models Own review! ^_^

I'm very new to Models Own nail polishes, but I was in Boots with my sister a couple of months ago and saw that they had a 'buy one get one half price' offer on, so we got a nail polish each. :) I chose Purple Grey which, as suggested by the name, is a purple-toned grey. I was looking for a slightly more subtle colour that still had some colour to it and was a little but more unusual than the normal greys, beiges and...greiges. It's actually a bit more purple in the photo than it is in real life.  Purple Grey stood out for being a little bit different, and I thought that it would suit my skin-tone better than a brown based colour.

I've worn Purple Grey at least ten times since I bought it, which is pretty amazing considering that I've only had it for a couple of months. I guess that just shows that I love it! ^__^ It applies super easily and is completely opaque with two coats, but you could get away with wearing one coat if you're really careful when putting it on. With a clear base and top coat this nail polish lasts a good 5 days without chipping or fading, but it actually lasts about a week if you're okay with a few chips.

Overall I'm incredibly impressed with Models Own and will be buying more of their nail polishes in the future. :D You can get them in Boots for £5 each and they have offers on quite often so you can get them cheaper. I would actually say that they're just as good as Essie...O__O

Do you have any Models Own nail polishes?
