Oh how excited I get when a new Models Own collection is launched! I seriously can't get enough of Models Own nail polishes and their new autumn/winter Elements collection £6 each (which launches in Boots stores and online from 7th August - tomorrow!) is serious to die for.
You can see the full collection below with a swatch of one of the shades... though more nail posts will be coming up soon enough to show the full range.
I'm already thinking of cosy nights in with my throw and better TV and rich autumnal colours, so this collection has come at just the right time for me. Yes, I know it's still summer but I do get bored of the seasons quite fast... so I'm already looking forward to autumn and even Halloween oddly enough!
The four new Elements Artstix Duo's join the eight existing Artstix duos (review post here), but the most exciting thing is these unique nail polish colours are NOT available as full sized Models Own nail polish shades... which is bitter sweet as I'm in love with two of the shades already and would without a doubt buy them as full sized bottles!
If you are totally new to the MO Artstix's the idea is simple. The stix consists of a opaque nail colour which you apply first as a base coat and then there is the glitter end which you apply over the entire nail or just on the tips or as an accent nail. Of course you can just wear the nail polish on it's own and use the glitter end over any nail polish, making it a very versatile nail product.
The new range consists of Terra Crystal (Terra Firma nail polish & Pink Crystal glitter), Blue Spray (Blue Maldives & Sea Spray), Ember Red (Hot Red & Ember Glow) and Cloud Drops (Cloud 9 and Dew Drops).
I personally feel this is a perfect transition collection from summer to autumn with shades Blue Spray and Cloud Drops being very wearable now and Terra Crystal and Ember Red being ideal for when the leaves turn orange and a scarf is needed!
My absolute favourite has to be Cloud Drops, pictured above, as the base coat - Cloud 9 is just an amazing creamy nude shade and the gold glitter of Dew Drops catches the light perfectly. But come autumn I know I won't be able to get enough of Ember Red as the burnt orange glitter is amazing!
I absolutely love Models Own nail polishes but I love that they have brought out so many new shades in the form of the Artstix (meaning you get to try out two shades for only £6) and that the shades are perfectly autumnal.
Let me know which duo you like the look of the most and I will make sure to do a nail swatch post of the most liked Elements Artstix this week!
