NAILS | Models Own Polish for Tans

L-R Sun Hat, Beach Bag and Flip Flop
Remember when Models Own released their Ice Neon Collection last year? Well, I absolutely fell in love. I'd never rocked neon shades before, but even now, I find myself sporting Bubblegum on my toe nails. Whereas Ice Neon was bold and bright, Polish For Tans are more muted. Still neon, but the shades are more pastel-esque. The neon colours have been mixed with a white base which balances the intensity to create a hybrid of neon-pastel hues.

There are five different shades in the collection, Flip Flop* (green), Bikini (yellow), Beach Bag* (coral), Shades (hot pink) and Sun Hat* (pink). The collection has been designed to enhance and complement a natural tan but at the moment, I'm extremely pale and these polishes instantly make me look less ghostly. My favourite shade? Beach Bag. It's extremely unique and matches the colour of my phone exactly (iPhone 5c, in case you were wondering).

As always with Models Own polishes, they're opaque in two coats and last a good five days on the nails without any chipping. They dry to a matt-ish finish but I like making them shiny with a top coat. You can buy the polishes on the Models Own website, Boots and Superdrug where they retail £5 each.

Have you tried this new collection yet? Which shade is your favourite?
