Nailed it: Models Own AW15 Chrome Collection // Swatched

If there is one thing I am not very good at, it’s painting nails, but boy oh boy my talons are now ready for the festive season; I am so excited. Thanks to the new Models Own AW15 Colour Chrome collection*, my nail game for Christmas is on-point. I have only used one of these formulas from previous collection drops, but the five new Colour Chrome additions are right up my street. I was first drawn to the collection by the hi-shine metallic look of the bottles, which I am guessing most of you will be too. The nail polishes are said to provide a 'liquid metal' formula, which has a super-shiny finish and intense depth of colour to ensure a foiled effect finish. The five new shades include Red, Grey, Copper, Turquoise and Pearl (swatched below).

The only thing I would say about the Models Own Colour Chrome nail polishes that is a little disappointing is that the polishes don't look 100% like liquid metal as the bottle would suggest, but that's not uncommon in nail polishes as it's incredible difficult (i'd imagine) to match an exterior to the actual product. I don't even know if it's possible for nail polish to look like a direct match for melted down metals, but Models Own has definitely done a good job at getting as close as possible. A couple of coats create a strong metallic finish, and when applied with a top coat, your mani is all kinds of shiny (not used below).

Copper is definitely one of my favourites; it's reminiscent of the rose gold hue that everyone (myself included) is coveting lately, and I also really like Grey as it has a gorgeous purple hue to it. I was expecting pearl to be slightly holographic as the bottle looks very lilac, but in fact it is very much a block silver looking shade with subtle lilac tones when the light hits. Red offers pink undertones which would make the perfect festive nail with Pearl painted on the tip.
