Model's Own 50% Off Haul

Hello everyone. Recently Model's Own done an online 50% off sale and I decided that I'd treat myself to a few new polishes with some birthday money. Model's Own are one of my favourite brands to buy nail polishes from but they don't have a stand in my town's Boots so I'm often left drooling over pictures of nail polish that I struggle to get my hands on. The deal was for 50% off purchases over £25 so I got myself 5 new nail polsihes for £12.50 and paid £2.95 for delivery. 


Model's Own have also just released their own take on the gel effect nail polish. I absolutely love gel/shellac nails but I hate the price and how long and boring it is to remove. So I knew that I had to try a few. I have a couple of the Barry M ones which are really nice, but I don't think that they feel like gel nails which have a smooth and thick, raised feeling.

The nail polishes that I picked up are Golden Shore, Turquoise Gloss, Red Lustre, Blue Glint and Absinthe. To be honest, I wish I'd bought more! The Hyper gel polishes are beautiful. So far I've only tried Red Lustre but it looked amazing on. It definitely isn't 'chip resistant' but I did get a little longer out of it than I do normal polishes. Golden Shore is lovely but not what I was expecting. It looked a lot thicker on the website but you really do need to wear some sort of polish underneath it. When my parcel arrived I was already wearing Beach Party and Golden Shore goes really well over the top of that. It is lovely but I'm not sure if I'll get as much wear out of it as I had originally planned. However the really gem for me is Absinthe which is from the velvet goth collection. It's a matte glitter polish! Definitely not one for spring/summer but I've got it on my toes and it looks amazing. I kind of wish I'd bought more from this collection. Maybe next time.


The delivery was actually really great and fast. There was a little warning that during sales the delivery might take a bit longer than usual due to such a large volume of sales. I ordered on Saturday night and got the polishes on Tuesday, not bad. Unfortunately the sale has now long passed so you won't be able to get any of these polishes at such a good price anymore. I'd recommend following them on Twitter/ liking them on Facebook. This is how I found out about the sale so it's the best thing to do if you want to keep an eye out for the next one!
Did you buy anything in the sale? What are your favourite Model's Own polishes?
