Just in time for Easter Models Own have gone and released a wonderful Speckled Egg Nail Collection. This lovely collection consists of 5 speckled pastel shades and has just launched today on the Models Own website (who are currently running a 6 for £20 deal!). You can also find these in Superdrug stores for £5 each as of today also.
Think ornate bird egg speckles on your nails and you are pretty close to the effect these beautiful nail polishes give. The collection consists of - Dove - a lovely dusky pink, Magpie - duck egg blue (seen in this post), Swan - a deep lilac, Goose - a soft mustard yellow and Duck a soft sky blue. Which as you can spot are all bird names... a lovely touch.
I will be making sure to swatch the full collection when the range fully launches into Boots stores next week but for now I thought I would share with you my favourite shade from the collection - Magpie.
For me this is the one to pick up from the collection as I know most people don't buy up the entire range! Magpie is the most perfect duck egg blue shade that I feel works best with the speckled matte glitter and is a spot on shade for spring/summer.
The formula of these isn't consistent with Model Own nail polishes, I found them slightly gloopy, however application is still easy and smooth enough, taking two coats for an opaque finish. These are also described as semi-matt but as you can see from my swatches they do have some shine to them but can of course be made extra shiny with a clear top coat - I personally didn't feel that was needed. Next one to try out on my nails will have to be Goose, I can't wait to see how the mustard yellow tone will look.
More swatches to come of this lovely collection!
