How are you all enjoying spring so far? Looking forward to summer? :) I love springtime as a season second to autumn, not just for the warmer weather, but also because it's a time when we can really give our beauty cabinets a good old spring clean! (Pun intended)
Now when it comes to nail polishes, I'm usually a fan of darker, more gothic hues. There's something about black, purple metallic and statement red shades that I just love! I think it's because pale skin pairs so well with deeper colours. But last week while shopping for make-up, I threw my usual nail polish rules out the window and bought this fresh sky blue bottle on impulse.
I've never tried out any Models Own beauty products before, so I'm always a little bit skeptical as to the quality I'm going to get with some high street brands. But after manicuring my nails with this gorgeous 'Blueberry Muffin' shade, I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely be buying more of these nail polishes in the future!
You have to apply at least 2 coats in order to get that bold pop of colour, but the product itself doesn't streak or leave a 'lumpy' texture like other nail products can sometimes do, so that's always a bonus. The only thing that did confuse me was the fact that this polish is supposed to be scented. Unfortunately I think this is more of a marketing gimmick than an actual yummy smelling nail polish.
Has anybody else tried nail polishes from the new Models Own #fruitpastel collection - what are your thoughts?
Here are a couple of images of my spring inspired nails...

Gotta include Lita Ford's 'Blueberry' as it's one of my fave glam rock classics! \m/
