Hello lovelies,

 

Autumn is not here yet so I'm still rocking neons! This time it's SpaRitual Jubilee, a bright orange with pink undertones. As always, my camera picked up more of the orange than the pink. In real life the colour leans to neon pink quite a bit.

 

Jubilee has good to apply formula and all I needed were two coats for full coverage. It dried fast and glossy but I still applied topcoat for the perfect finish.

I've paired the SpaRitual Jubilee with a Lipsy necklace I got from BANK Fashion.

I love the opalescent 'petals' and the pale gold metal which makes it perfect to combine with any clothes! In fact this is the most worn statement necklace I have and I got quite a few compliments on it too, especially during my holiday. Would you wear it?

 

As for the 'nail polish of the day', Jubilee is available at SpaRitual UK and SpaRitual US websites and in selected salons.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

As you might know, Models Own have released a new Sweet Shop collection that features 5 new shades. All of them are called after a type of sweet/candy and they also smell like them! Yes, the polishes are scented and smell really yummy! I have been sent Liquorice, Fizzy Cola Bottles and Gumballs (and a bag of sweets - thank you xx) so below are my swatches and reviews:

Gumballs - medium pink creme with a sweet gumball scent. Be careful not to attracts bees and wasps, this one smell nice and sweet <3 I've applied two thicker coats but three regular ones might be better. I would have liked the polish to be a bit better pigmented but two coats will still be enough. The formula was easy to apply and I'm wearing a topcoat as well.

Fizzy Cola Bottles - muted brown with gold particles and cola scent. I was sniffing my nails all the time, I love that smell! The formula was a bit thicker so I've applied two regular coats which provided full coverage. There are gold particles in the polish which make the surface a bit gritty so topcoat is necessary.

Liquorice – black creme with liquorice scent.  I'm not a fan of liquorice, I don't eat it but the scent is spot on. The polish itself has lower pigmentation so I've applied three coats to get full opacity. It applied well and dried smoothly and glossy.

I really like that Models Own is bringing back scented polishes. It's somewhat a refreshing change from the regular stinky varnishes. All three shades smelled nicely and strong after they dried and I'm very tempted to get the rest of the collection just for the smells :D I only wish that Models Own polishes weren't such a hit and miss formula and pigmentation-wise.

 

Sweet Shop collection is available now from Models Own website and bottle shops, Boots & Superdrug stores.

 

What do you think if the scents? Are you going to be getting any of these for yourself? Let me know! Lucie x
