Beauty Review: Models Own Nail Polish in Gold Rush

Continuing my love affair with nail bling, this week's manicure is Models Own Gold Rush - which, as the name suggests, is a glittering gold shade. I'd been in two minds about this one because I didn't know if it was too much as it looks really glittery in the bottle, but in my eternal optimism I thought I'd give it a go.

One of the good things about Models Own, as well as the vast array of colours and the reasonable price, is that the polishes apply really well and last for ages. This is with three coats, but even with two the coverage was almost perfect (I personally like three coats just to ensure minimal streaking). As you can see it looks a lot less glittery on the nail than it does in the bottle and is more of a general gold shimmer:

I could quite happily wear this polish on its own without any nail art over the top on a day where I felt like having a bit of sparkle in my life, but of course I always get the urge to do something else to a manciure instead of just leaving it be. So once again I brought out my trusty Barry M black crackle polish, applied a thickish coat, and this is the result:

As always, base coat is Nails Inc Hyde Park and top coat is Seche Vite.

There is something a bit ghetto fabulous about this one, but I must confess I do rather like that as it's so different from the sort of thing I'd normally go for. It's quite out there so probably not for the faint of heart or if you've got a job where your bosses are very strict about this sort of thing (although I'm lucky enough to have a relatively casual office so could just about get away with it!). I think it'd make for a fab look at a Christmas party with a fairly simple outfit like a little black dress, so you can let your nails do the talking.

You can buy Models Own nail varnish from their website or in some larger Boots stores, and it'll set you back around £5 per bottle, although they do have three for £12 and five for £13 deals on the website.
