Model's Own Polish - Sophie's Pink

Boots are offering two Model's Own Nail Polishes for £8 at the moment so I seized an opportunity to grab a little bargain and two shades I have been after for a while - plus who doesn't love collecting boots points?

This shade I chose is called Sophie's Pink and although my camera makes it look a bit pastel like its more of a bright pink.

I only get to wear nail varnish at the weekend because I work in a laboratory and have to have clean hands and nails (I only just about get away with wearing my wedding ring!) so I like to wear the colours I love.

Excuse the badly painted nails on my left hand - I'm a lefty and have trouble painting the left side with my right hand!

Firstly I put on my Sally Hansen base coat and then applied two coats of the Model's Own polish. Once dry I painted over the top with the Sally Hansen again. The top coat makes my nails so smooth and shiny. I'd definitely recommend getting that. The problem is i'm a little too impatient waiting for nails to dry and I always end up smudging them! I need to learn to be patient!

Overall, I think the varnish is great value for money as it goes on really smoothly and so even I haven't managed to chip it.

I'd love to visit the Model's Own store in Shepherd's Bush, London, just look at it! Doesn't it look amazing! You can buy Model's Own at, Boots and Asos.

 Have you visited this shop? Have you tried any Model's Own nail polish?


  1. Wow that shop looks amazing!! I love the colour it's gorgeous, I may have to pop to Boots! XxxX

  2. I've been to the bottle, if you're in the area, it's worth a trip, they do better special offers than boots and the girls who work there really know their product!
