I received the Models Own Pastel Collection as a gift for my birthday last year and that was the day I fell in love with Models Own! The colours came in a little black box (which I now use to keep my free samples in) and all looked great together.
Here's the basic lowdown on each colour! (L to R)
This nail varnish lives up to its name as it is a dream to wear! The colour is easy to apply and looks fabulous with just one coat, although you may add a second. The formula is bright, does not come out streaky when used, dries quickly and does not chip for quite a while (1-2 weeks wear). This lilac is fresh and light, making your nails look lovely and feminine :-)
This pink is a very bright and barbie-esque shade which applies easily with just one coat for a rich colour! Formula is quickly dried and lasts for a week or more without chips.
This blue is a delightful colour to wear, it is easy to apply with 1 or 2 coats needed for a lovely rich blue colour which is a perfect balance between a heavy blue and a light blue. You will see no streaks on application, no chips for a week plus, and will not have to wait long for it to dry. It is a lovely simple blue - a nail varnish which should be in your essential colours list! :-)
Unfortunately, I found this colour quite messy to apply as the formula comes out quite runny and streaky - you will need a few coats to balance it out! Also it seems to chip a lot easier than the other colours. Despite this, the yellow is lovely and bright whilst still appearing perfectly pastel :-)
This colour's name is slightly misleading as I would say it's more green than turqouise - it comes out looking like a healthy green grass colour. The formula is quick drying after 1-2 coats of healthy looking green ,and will last for a week or more with no chips.
This colour is lovely and bright, livening up your nails; it also leans more towards orange than peach, but still retains a peachy quality. The formula is easy to apply with no streaks, a quick dry-time (after 1-2 coats) and a low chip rate. It's the first orange-y nail varnish I have ever owned and I'm glad it is - it's perfect for a sunny day with a mouthwatering fruit smoothie... which I'm now craving as I write! :-)
I am very pleased to own this collection and think that it is a must-have for all Models Own adorers! The application of all colours is relatively smooth (with the exception of Lemon Meringue) and without chips for a week or more with a good top coat :-)
