Models Own Speckled Eggs

Models Own Speckled EggsIt officially became springtime in the UK on Thursday 20th March, and what should be waiting on my welcome mat when I got home that day but this package of joy. Spring has well and truly sprung in the Models Own world with their latest nail polish collection, Speckled Eggs.

Models Own Speckled EggsThe colours are: ‘Dove’ (pink); ‘Swan’ (purple); ‘Duck’ (blue); ‘Goose’ (yellow); and ‘Magpie’ (green/turquoise).

They look like Mini Eggs – the ultimate springtime treat – and so look fab in a mix ‘n’ match mani like the one above as well as on their own of course. The formula is consistent across all the colours, on the thick side but easy to handle if you take your time and opaque in two coats. The speckles are made up of three different sizes of matte black glitter and didn’t require any special placement, just swipe on like a normal polish.

I absolutely love the look of these. They dry smooth and with a bit of a shine but I added a topcoat to up the gloss factor. I used the Boots Salon Nail Shine Solution.

Models Own Speckled EggsThese are priced at £5 each but Models Own currently have an offer of 6 for £20 on their website so you could get the entire collection with one for free and another to spare. I did this and picked up Cornflower Gleam from their HyperGel range. This was my first time ordering from their website and I must say I’m impressed with the service. I placed my order on the Monday and it had arrived by the time I came back from Paris on Thursday. The box they were delivered in was small enough to go through the letterbox (definite bonus as I’m never in for packages) but sturdy and the polishes were well protected. I wouldn’t hesitate to order from them again.

I completely love this collection. I can tell that I am going to be wearing these a lot, especially ‘Magpie’ and ‘Swan’. Which is your favourite colour?
