Models Own Wonderland collection swatches and giveaway!!

The Models Own mirror ball collection only came out a little over a month ago (see my swatches of that collection here) and yet we've been blessed with another oh-so sparkly set of polishes already.  This is the Wonderland collection.


Models Own wonderland collection | £5 each | Models Own (from 12 Oct)

I saw these on the Models Own facebook page and did a little swoon.  They launched in Boots and the Westfield bottle shop today, so I ran down to Boots this morning and managed to snag the whole lot like a greedy so and so.  Originally I had only intended to buy the glitter top coat style polishes from this collection, which are blizzard, snowflake and jack frost as I figured I didn't need another lilac or pink glitter polish.  But, you know how it goes, when I saw the polishes up close I couldn't resist.  Plus Boots had these on 3 for 2, so that sort of made it okay to buy the lot.

As soon as I got home I eagerly set about swatching, so here's the Wonderland collection in its full glory.  The  nails on the left of each set  are in daylight and the ones on the top right are with flash.






Ahhh so pretty.  Which is your favourite?  

Northern and Southern Lights are not opaque polishes but they are quite full coverage for glitters.  I think you could get them opaque in about three coats.  My swatches of Northern and Southern Lights are two coats over an opaque-ish Seche base coat. 

I originally swatched Jack Frost over some lighter colours before realising it showed up better over the dark ones above.  Below is an idea of how it looks over lighter polishes, but my camera found it hard to pick these up - it looks much more sparkly and pearlescent in real life.


And finally another look at the whole collection together - these are all with flash.  I'm pleased I got all of these - I hardly ever wear a simple block colour on my nails any more, I seem to always be sticking some sort of funky top coat on for good measure, so I'll be getting loads of use out of these.

  2. I think northern and southern lights are my favourites, they remind me of the polishes Topshop released, but think I need Jack Frost too. Thank you for getting swatches up so quickly, can't wait to see these in my Boots xx
