Models Own – Golden Green

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Golden Green from Models Own (the Beetlejuice collection) is a polish that I hadn’t tried until a couple of months ago. I don’t understand why I waited so long, it’s gorgeous! As the name implies the base color is a golden green, and it shifts to a deep grassy green. This is three or four coats with Seche Vite on top.

My cuticles looks awful on these photos so I’ve tried to blur them a little, don’t know if it did much of a difference though.

I’ll definitely be wearing this one again!

Models Own – Emerald Black with Extras

Monday, September 17th, 2012

I’m still digging around my old photos, and found this manicure from last year. Models Own Emerald Black is a very dark emerald green, hence the name. I’m pretty sure I did three coats. It’s definitely the least duochrome polish from the Beetlejuice collection, but you can get some blue to show in some angles.

Here you can see the blue tone in a more extreme angle. In most cases it will just look green, but that’s not so bad since it’s a beautiful green.


I decided to spice it up a little, so I added a coat or two of the flakie polish Nfu Oh 52, which has similar color shifts in green and blue. Beware of pic spam!

Here you can start to see some of the blue tones in the flakies and shimmer, in the next two photos with sunlight you can see even more of the blue shift:

This is me trying to do an Alizarine again, but my pinky just can’t pull it off.

Shame on me for not showing this earlier!

Models Own – Aqua Violet

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Wow. That’s the one word that describes how I feel about this polish. As the name implies, Models Own Aqua Violet is a duochrome that shifts between an aqua color and purple. And the color shift is pretty strong! I wore this in January so I don’t remember any details, but I think I applied four thin coats and then Seche Vite.

Now, let’s just sit back and adore this beauty:
