Models Own have taken the Nail polish market by storm by being one of the first companies to release a mirror chrome effect nail polish that doesn’t require a gel lamp or pigment powders 😍.
When I first saw the release for this I was so excited as the nail swatches looked amazing and so unreal. The kit retails at £14.99 and you can expect to receive a all in one top/base coat and the polish to create the mirror effect.
When using the polish it’s important to apply both thinly as you won’t get the desired effect otherwise and it’s also vital to make sure the base/top coat is completely dry before applying the silver polish.
As you can see the silver polish is so pigmented and I was super excited to get this on my nails ASAP 😍
After allowing the base/top to completely dry I then applied the silver polish which I found to be quite difficult as with the brush I wasn’t able to quite fully cover my nails without over applying the polish.
* By over applying the silver polish you will end up losing the mirror effect so it important to try and get your nails covered in a few swipes *
Here are my results:
As you can see I only managed to get a few nails that turned out decent. I’m going to be completely honest and say I don’t like this polish as when I applied the top coat it made me lose some of the mirror effect.
Also I was a bit disappointed when I read that the polish only lasts for six hours and then it begins to fade/chip. I found my polish didn’t even last two hours before it started to go all horrible and it was so hard to remove 🙈😩.
Overall I think if you manage to apply this polish correctly you will get the desired effect but for me personally I would be much happier if the polish would stay pn longer unless you intentionally want a quick fix for a night out or event.
