NOTD - Models Own Green Tea

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. 

What is your favourite shade by Models Own? 


  1. I picked up purple grey & grey day in the ASOS sale :)
    I have nude beige too and it's really nice, although a bit too pale for me.
    I seen green tea in the sale but it looked similar to their polish I bought a while ago, jade stone.

    What other colours did you pick up in the sale?

  2. Purple Grey and In The Navy are absolutely gorgeous shades.

    I'm doing a giveaway for a £25 homeware gift voucher. If anyone is interested click here.

  3. I really like this colour on you, have got it myself but not sure whether to brave it on my nails or keep it to the toes.


  4. I really like this colour! xo

  5. At least you have a polish to wear on Halloween ;)

  6. This is so similar to ditch the heels from ciate! so nice

  7. I have all four of the shades you're thinking about trying out - I adore them! Nude Beige is the perfect every day nail colour. I've only got one of MO's matte polishes - the black one. It's alright but like you, I had issues with the second coat.

  8. this is beautiful. My favourite one is Jade Stone and I want to try Purple Grey out next

    xoxo stay fabulous

  9. love this! reminds me of elphaba from wicked :)

  10. I also picked up some things in the Asos sale - so know how cheap you are talking.. So cheap in fact, that I managed to buy 13 nail varnishes.. Yes, 13.
    Plus 3 necklaces & some other makeup bits. Oh & 2 dresses. Ahem. Anyway..
    I think this is one of the shades that's winging its way to me - definitely prefer it with a topcoat :) I've not tried any Model's Own nail varnish before, so I'm looking forward to getting my new ones!

  11. I am awaiting my local big Boots to hurry up and stock so that I can go and have a good look - I like this green though, nice and bright. Jan x

  12. WOW what an amazing punch of color! Love it!

  13. I kind of liked the matte look! But I love green polish, in fact of have Ciate Ditch The Heels on now!

  14. Really fun colour!

    Green nails aren't just for Halloween, I like them year round - especially British Racing Green by Butter London. It's quite a dark, not too in your face shade.

  15. I really like this colour and I think it looks fine on you. It's certainly different, but thats all the fun in experimenting x

  16. Such a gorgeous colour!! i wanna get this now! x
