Models Own Festival Nail Polish Collection* Swatches and Review

Here we go guys, here are the highly anticipated swatches of Models Own new Festival Collection nail polishes.  What is cool about this release is that it's not just a collection of nail polishes but there are lipsticks, face paints and hair sprays to get you into the Summer mood.  I've been stalking my nearest Model Own stand for the lip sticks to come in stock to no avail so if anyone can point me in the direction of swatches, then go ahead!  Anyway, follow me under the cut so we can get looking at some bright and wonderful polishes :-)

GoT Dragon Egg Nail Art

 I'm sure a good few of you have been waiting in anticipation of the new series of Game of Thrones.  I was lucky enough to get to see the first episode of season 5 at a special screening by Belfast Film Festival.  I can tell you its a great season opener, opens up a lot of new story lines and teases us for future events.

Now, as I'm sure you're also aware, the first four episodes have been leaked.  I've decided NOT to watch them since I don't think I can wait another four weeks for the next installments but I fear getting spoiled, it's a double edged sword I think.  Any way, moving onto the nail art, in the first episode we get to see Dany's dragons again and I was also inspired by a publicity stunt pulled in Belfast this week so come on under the cut to check out my talons!

Lily Pulitzer Inspired Nails feat. Models Own

Superdrug have launched a competition to find their 'Superdrug Exclusives Blogger' and to enter you must write a blog post post featuring products found exclusively in Superdrug.  One of my favourite Superdrug exclusive brand has to be Models Own.  

The past few weeks I've been lacking a bit in inspiration but I always find fashion to be a good place to start for nailspiration so I had a nosey through the Lily Pulitzer website and found the Be Spotted print and fell in love.  It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of leopard print and I love this print's mix of leopard and zebra print with the occasional lion head thrown into the mix.  The colour palette is so fun too and I knew I had the perfect pinks from my Models Own arsenal to fulfil the brief.


Models Own Pink Paradise (Hypergel), Cerise Shine (Hypergel) and Pink Icing

This manicure was really fun to do and so easy.  Leopard print is definitely one of those designs you can pop on your nails in hardly any time and I think the mix of zebra, leopard  and polka dot makes the design a bit more wearable for those who find leopard or zebra print too overwhelming (whereas I think leopard print is a neautral LOL)


Models Own polishes are priced at £4.99 each and all the above polishes can be found in Superdrug, as well as the Models Own website.

What's your favourite go-to pattern for your nails?  Let me know in the comments below and be sure to follow, like and subscribe on all the social media channels below, until next time :-)
