NOTD #2 - Models Own (Hed Kandi) in Beach Party




I have been wanting this nail polish for such a long time and recently decided to treat myself to it. I was worried that it might go out of stock as it's in the Hed Kandi collection and I'm not too sure whether this is a permanent polish in their collection (it should be if it isn't!). 

I am a big lover of anything neon as of late and so I knew I would love this just as much as I love my favourite nail polish (Pixi Glow - the bright pink one from the fairytale/tinkerbell collection! - review coming soon). I just hoped it would be as neon and bright as it appeared in swatches. I painted my nails with it last night and at first I was actually a little disappointed with the pigmentation as it wasn't quite as bright as I thought it would be but when I woke up this morning, my first thought was wow! It was much brighter than I had thought it was last night - maybe it was the lighting, maybe I was just tired. I'm not to sure, but I'm in love with it! It's such a beautiful shade and it could possibly be taking over my beloved Pixi polish as my favourite... We'll have to see! 

I'm not going to lie, I am a little disappointed about the quality of the polish. It appears to have bubbled on my nails, but I'm pretty sure there are ways of getting around this as I have also had the same problem with some of my Barry M polishes. Any ideas? 

Even though I was slightly disappointed by this it doesn't actually stop me loving the polish any less than I would if this wasn't a problem - the amazing colour takes away from this! I can imagine it would look even more amazing on tanned skin as it would just pop even more - sun please come out so I can test this theory! but nevertheless, I am still loving the polish all the same. The perfect summer colour I must say. I am now very tempted by Hedonist and Baleriac Cool from the Hed Kandi collection as I can imagine they are both just as great. 

Have you tried any of the Models Own Hed Kandi collection? Do you love a neon nail or do you prefer a nude?

  3. That is such a gorgeous shade but would look awful on my pale hands. I have the ibiza mix and the pink glittery hed kandi polishes and I adore them both.

  4. It's bubbled because you need to let each coat dry fully before applying the next - I find that if I use a thick coat it bubbles to leave it 5mins longer between coats and use thinner coats and it shouldn't bubble :)

    1. you can order it off the internet or buy it in store. not to sure where it'd be in stock though. I bought mine off of ASOS but your next bet would be to buy it off of the models own store! Would definitely recommend picking it up, it's really lovely! xx

  7. Loving that orange on you! Such a yellow hued orange would look terrible on my nails but it looks pretty damn gorgeous in the bottle.
