Models Own hedkandi 2013 collection - sunset chillout and bora bora review and swatches


We all know models own make some fabulous polishes, and there have been some great collections coming out lately (iced neons, fruit pastels and nail art pens), but when they release polishes in association with hedkandi, you always know there's something a little bit extra special on the way.  

The latest hedkandi releases don't disappoint.  *Sunset chillout and *bora bora are just crying out to be worn all summer long.  I thought I couldn't get excited about another gold polish, but bora bora has a special edge - it really does remind me of golden sandy beaches with its subtle fine glitter.  It works perfectly as a full coverage polish in two coats too.  

Sunset chillout is this year's answer to Ibiza Mix (I'm still in love with that polish too) - it's a multi-coloured, mixed-size glitter polish dominated by chunky blue glitter.  There's enough glitter packed in for it to be worn alone - although that's not my favourite look as I have an aversion to naked nails - but it looks great over pretty much any colour.  Here I'm wearing it over models own pastel pink as I thought it contrasted really well with the blue glitter in sunset chillout.  

I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of Models Own's new Splash collection which is due to hit the shelves of Boots on 15 May - how beautiful are these sparklers?  


From left to right they're called aqua splash, pink paradise, red sea, golden shores and mermaid tears.  I hope they look as good as this in real life!

Have you tried any of the new models own collections?
