I recently bought three Models Own nail polishes in the ASOS sale (see I do love them really) - I'm not to to say how cheap they were as they are all out of stock now, and I don't want to make you all jealous! But lets just say they were cheap!
I decided to buy shades that I wouldn't normally consider wearing, to just give them a chance and in hope that I would be converted.
So my first choice was Green Tea - now I have zero greens in my nail polish collection as who really wears green nails except for maybe on Halloween. But I liked the name ha, so I bought it.
Now I was thinking I could maybe pull off green nails, but green and matte...not a chance!
I really didn't realise until it dried that it was a creme finish nail polish and for me with this colour it just doesn't work.
Personally it's on a par with say yellow matte nails or a royal blue , it just looks about odd and wrong.
Also I found applying the second coat abit tricky, it was almost drying as I applied it and made the finish abit patchy.
Having said all that I wasn't to bothered by the finish as I knew a top coat would solve the problem.
As you can see my nails do match the shade in the bottle now and don't look that odd and plastic like.
But I am still not sure if this is the shade for me.
I was however looking at all the other shades that Models Own do and really want to try - Purple Grey, Nude Beige, Grey Day and Magenta Pearl.
