Following my previous post where I've showed you bottle shots of the new Models Own Diamond Luxe Collection, here is the review! The collection consists of 10 colours infused with real diamond dust and I have 5 of them:
Princess Pink - cotton candy pink base with silver and pink flecks. This must be the girliest colour from the collection, it's very cute pink. I had to apply two thicker coats because it dries quite fast and when i worked slowly I started to get patches. The drying time was rather average probably because of the thicker coats and i dried nice and glossy.
Oval Plum - red-based purple with magenta sparkles. This is absolutely stunning polish, my favourite of them all! The colour is so rich and flattering ♥ The formula is much better than with the previous shade, it applied beautifully and I needed just two thin coats for full coverage. It dried fast and glossy, no top coat in the pics.
Marquise Maroon - deep red base with a bit of brown undertones and gold particles partly coloured in red. The brown undertones are more visible in the bottle than on the nail. The colour on the nail is deep and beautifully rich. This polish has also great formula and pigmentation. I've applied two coats, no top coat.
Heart Red - bright red with orange undertones and gold sparkles. This is a good shade for summer - it's vivid, bright and full of sparkle. It applied easily and two regular coats were fully opaque. No top coat in the pics.
Emerald Green - medium green with gold particles. In real life the green is more like a new grass with more yellow tones in it, not jade like in the pictures. Unfortunately I couldn't make the camera take accurate picture. I'm wearing two regular coats without topcoat. The polish dried glossy and application was without problems.
They are beautiful, right? Apart from the Princess Pink they all had great formulas and even Princess Pink problem was solved with thicker coats. I'm not sure how much of the diamond dust is actually in the each bottle but I'm glad they still cost the same as any other Models Own polish. My absolute favourites are Oval Plum and Marquise maroon, they are absolutely stunning!
The polishes will cost £4.99 each and will be available on www.modelsownit.com from 19th September, UK Models Own Bottleshops from 20th September and Superdrug stores nationwide on the 24th 2014.
I hope you've enjoyed the swatches and let me know which one is YOUR favourite! Lucie x
