Models Own: 'Black Magic' and a touch of 'Thunder & Lightning'


For a change this week I decided to go with classic jet black nails. I used Models Own's 'Black Magic' for the first time since I brought it. The formula was actually quite disappointing, while it did give a lovely rich black, it was hard to apply even with layers of thin coats.
It looks lovely on, but 2 days on it has already begun to chip at the edges of my nails! :-(

On my ring finger on each hand, I used a thick layer of Models Own's black/multicoloured glitter 'Thunder & Lightning' on top of a thin coat of plain black. I have to say that even though it is very subtle, it looks quite pleasing to see a splash of glitter and a hint of colour with my jet black nails. The glitter is wonderful in the light with specks of every colour :-)

All of Models Own's glitter polishes are very durable and long-lasting, hardly chipping at all and shimmering on for weeks and weeks! I highly recommend them to anyone who loves a bit of glitz on their nails, but a word of warning - they are kind of hard to remove as they stay on so well, so you better be in love with your glitter enough to keep it on for a long time before removing it! :-)

    1. You need an upgrade girl! :-) I wish I could recommend this black seeing as I am a dedicated Models Own fan, but it really isn't too great - I will be on the lookout for another fabulous black!
