April Nail of the Month - Under the Sea...

Hi all!

This month I've been loving Models Own nail polishes, to be fair I've never used them in the past and I really wish I had before, they are amazing. Here is the look I achieved....

I adore the result!! :-) The colour is so soo pretty and to quote my friend they are 'mermaid nails'. I tried my best to capture the colour but honestly its 100% better in real life, this picture doesn't to it justice. The colour is a duo chrome turquoise and pink which changes colour in the light.

So to achieve this look I used a base colour first, which was an MUA nail polish in shade 5, a mint green colour. The MUA polish is quite sheer so I used 3 coats to get an opaque finish but its such a lovely colour that I don't really mind. Plus it's only £1 from Superdrug so I can't really complain (click here).

On top of that I applied 2 coats of the Models Own nail polish in 'Indian Ocean' a very apt name as I'm sure you'll agree! :-) You can buy this polish at Boots for £5 (click here).

Despite both polishes being really sheer the result was a turquoise underwater dream! And I was so impressed with how the polish lasted, I wore it for 5 days straight without a single chip or any wear, which is so great. Frankly this nail combo got me through the wet English weather we've been having recently and took me to a very sunny place! ;-)

So what do you think of my nails?
