Monday's Mani


When it comes to nude nails, I think it's a marmite sort of thing. You either love it or hate it. My boyfriend for example hates it with a passion, I on the other hand think they're so classy and chic. It's a shade that you can get away with wearing all year round too! 
Today I'm wearing one of my all time favourite nude polishes (much to my boyfriends dismay); Models Own in the shade 'Nude Beige'.  

Sorry for the crappy photo quality. Today was a bad photo day and this was the best of a very bad bunch!  

If I'm honest my bottle has seen better days. Its nearing its end I think cus' its gone all thick and gloopy. This may even be the last wear I can get out of it *sheds tear*. It's definitely a polish I will repurchase though.

The formula is quite thick and would probably be okay with just one coat but I prefer to apply two coats for a fully opaque finish. I'm not wearing a top coat in the above photo and I think you can see that it has quite an impressive glossy finish left alone. The only niggle I have with this polish is the brush; I wish it was a tiny bit thicker (like the one featured in my last monday's mani post) but its something I can put up with, all things considered. 
Have you tried anything from models own?

You can pick up nude beige to try for yourself for £5 at Boots.

  2. I haven't tried models own, being I live in a small town with not a ton of variety of brands all the time. I do love a great nude tone nail though. I agree: very classy! My boyfriend doesn't get stuff all the time either. The other day I said to him "It's because boys only know stereotypical beauty trends, and women have moved on. The days of only red nail polish are over!"

    1. Oh no really! I've not had any niggles apart from it turning a little glooy (I've had it for a year though so I guess it's not so bad!) xx
