Models Own Beetlejuice Collection

 *Tomorrow is the last day to enter my holiday giveaway!

When I first saw a press release for this collection I was like O.O. I had a fear though since these were coming from the UK they'd be too pricey for my wallet. I was pleasantly surprised that cost of these was not that bad. I got the whole set with top coat plus shipping for $50. It's not cheap, but it's not completely unreasonable either. My second fear with this collection was since it was not really swatched on blogs prior to its release I was going to be making a gamble. I was fearful these would not be what I expected. Thankfully, I was wrong. These are pretty polishes!

The one problem with these is that my camera in no way could do these justice. I've noticed that bloggers with better cameras than me have had the same issue. These are just too pretty for cameras!


Pinky Brown

Pinky Brown is warm foil pink with golden/orange duochrome.

Aqua Violet

Aqua Violet is a aqua shimmer with purple duochrome.

Purple Blue

Purple Blue is a deep purple foil with bright blue duochrome.


Emerald Black

Emerald Black is a deep green shimmer with black edges.

Golden Green

Golden Green is a yellow-green shimmer with a golden duochrome.

These colors are great. Some of these were sheer when applied, but built up nicely. The only issue I have with these is that some of these are shimmers while others are foils. I wish they all were foils since I prefer that finish. The great thing about these is they're NOT limited edition. You don't have rush out to get these, because they'll always be around.

You can find the Beetlejuice collection on Models Own website.

Happy Wednesday!

  11. Is the teal at all frosty? I couldn't really tell in the photos. Also, what do you do to keep your cuticles in such great shape? They are lovely!

  17. I really like Pinky Brown and Aqua Violet. I've added these to my cart on the MO site, but I haven't decided if I want to splurge just yet.

  18. As much as I like these, it's not something I feel like you have to immediately jump on. I guess it's because it's not LE. I think they can sit in your cart for awhile until you make a decision. :)

  23. Oh geez...I'm not sure if I'd call it frosty...per say. These nail polish finishes sometimes confuse me. I really say it's a shimmer. Thanks, they still have their problems. I moisturize my hands a lot. Believe it or not I love this lotion at Dollar Tree called Dermasil. It seriously is the best. I also use Lush Lemony Flutter cuticle butters that's a bit pricey around $15, but so worth it. It lasts a long time too. I put that on before I go to sleep at night.

  24. If you have hesitations about these, I would suggest you really think about it before getting them especially since they are not LE.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, they'll be around so if you decide sometime you want them you can still get them!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you :).

  27. I totally agree. It doesn't have much of the duochrome factor but the richness of that green is amazing!

  28. That's a pretty one!
