NOTD - Models Own Disco Heaven

Models Own Hedkandi Disco Heaven


Back in May I showed you swatches of Ibiza Mix from the Models Own Hedkandi range and it's still a favourite of mine. But I thought it was only fair to also show you Disco Heaven - another nail polish from the music label collaboration.

You can view my nail swatches of Models Own Ibiza Mix - here

Disco Heaven is a gold glitter with random blue iridescent pieces of glitter and is definitely a top coat unlike some of the other Models Own glitters that are quite opaque over the nails in 3 coats. So this works best over different shades as you only need one coat. You can find Disco Heaven at ASOS £5 - here, or Boots that have a Model Own stand.. though be warned it is sold out most of the time at Boots.
 
Models Own Hedkani Disco Heaven swatch Pink Punch

I first decided to apply this over a really bright base so I chose Models Own Pink Punch as it is such a lovely neon pink... but sadly for some reason this doesn't show up on my camera! The bottle shade is more similar to what it looks like in real life but more vivid and bright. Even though this doesn't look that 'wow' in the images I did really like the gold glitter against such a bright base -very summery. This is definitely a combination I would wear on my toes on holiday!

I only applied one coat but I did find more glitter being applied to the centre of the nails than the sides as I applied it... I guess because the brush overlaps into the centre as you are painting the side. Not really a big deal at all but most glitters don't do this on me. 

Models Own Disco Heaven Orly Black Out swatches
 
I am so glad I decided to also try Disco Heaven over a black base because it just looks amazing and really shows off the blue glitter amongst the gold. For the base I went for Orly Black Out (£5.00 mini 5ml size) which I love as you only need two coats and it isn't watery like some black nail polishes. Again I just applied one coat of the Disco Heaven top coat. This really have a clubbing/night out type aspect I think!

If I had more time to spare I would have tried the polish over a nude base as I think glitters can look really elegant over nude shades. But I guess that can be for another NOTD post. 

I really am a lover of the Models Own glitter nail polishes! 
 
Fee xo.
