NOTD: A sneaky try of Models Own Ibiza Mix

When Models Own Ibiza Mix first came out, I decided I didn't really need it as I heard another blogger saying how similar it is to OPI rainbow connection.  I'd forgotten all about it until the other day when my friend pulled Ibiza Mix out of her bag.  It didn't look much like Rainbow Connection in the bottle, so I asked if I could have a go.

Sorry for the not so great iphone photos - I hadn't gone out planning to be taking blog photos!  I put Ibiza Mix over a purple and a pale peach to see how it worked light and dark colours.  I think I like it most over the purple - it's like a party going on right there on my nail!  

I have to say I don't think this is like Rainbow Connection at all.  The glitter is not the same size and although they're both multi-coloured glitter polishes, they're made up of different colours.  Ibiza mix is mostly gold with a lot of green, turquoise and pinky coloured glitter and I love it.  It's not like anything else I own and I think I need to pick this up for myself.  

A good lesson for me to remember that other people's opinions are just that - opinions, not facts!  I'm glad I didn't totally let this one pass me by.  

Do you have Ibiza Mix - is it similar to any other glitter polishes you've come across?


  1. It really looks unique-I think I need it too! xo

  2. I love both this and rainbow connection, actually did a post comparing the 2 http://nevermindsuzi.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/notd-nails-inc-london-nights-models-own.html hope you don't mind me sharing the link but here is my comparison xo
