Models Own Diamond Luxe collection with swatches

L-R Radiant Pink, Asscher Blue and Heart Red

I sorted my collection out the other day and discovered that I have more nail polish than I know what to do with. However Saturday saw me go and purchase even more. I was sent three polishes from Models Own's Diamond Luxe collection - Asscher Blue*, Heart Red* and Pear Purple* (which sadly smashed) - and when I saw the press release, I knew I had to buy Radiant Pink

The new collection is said to contain real diamond dust to deliver a unique, multi-dimensional super-sparkly finish. The glitter isn't too prominent - more like a subtle shimmer - which is perfect for adding a bit of sheen to the nails without it ending up looking tacky and childish. There is a total of ten shades in the collection all of which are different, unique and stunning.

In terms of formula, Models Own have nailed it again. They glide onto the nails easily and dry down to a beautiful glossy finish. I do add a final coat of the Hypergel topcoat though. The blue and the red were both opaque in just one coat whereas the pink took a bit more building up. But that wasn't an issue because they didn't apply streaky at all.

Have you tried the new collection? What do you think?
