Models Own Pro – Green Envy

22 Sep

So, a few months ago I did a five-week exchange term in Europe. The program was based in Manchester, UK, but we traveled to several places as well. After seeing a glimpse of Europe, I have to say that the UK blows every other place out of the water when it comes to shopping for clothes or cosmetic products. There’s just so much variety in the brands and they’re usually quite affordable. I, for one, was just excited to see with my own eyes the UK products and brands I’ve been reading and listening about for years now!

One of these products was Models Own nail polish. There were so many colours I wanted to pick up, but considering my excessively restrictive baggage limit, I had to resist the temptation to buy like 10 new polishes. I believe these was the only one I bought with my own money while abroad (will go into that later in another post :p).

Of course, Models Own Pro Green Envy is not part of the regular Models Own line, but the “Pro” line. Bought this at Boots at The Trafford Centre in Manchester (HUGE mall; if you’re ever in Manchester you must go, maybe after seeing the stadium. Also, shout out to Amy and Arianna, who went with me! :D). Around 8 pounds I think, which is 3 pounds more expensive than the regular line. Why the price discrepancy? Honestly, I’m not sure. Are the bottles bigger? I don’t have a regular Models Own bottle to compare it to. Could it be that the colours are more on-trend or edgy? Who knows.

Either way, I love Green Envy! A super dark green polish with tons of tiny shimmers. Or is it just a black polish with tons of tiny green and blue shimmers? Not quite sure, but either way this polish is beautiful. It applied beautiful in two effortless coats and dried quickly as well. No complaints here…8 pounds well spent!

    Random question: I was at London Drugs and saw this “magnetic” nail polish. You’re supposed to paint your nails and then use the magnet on the cap to create an effect. Have you ever tried it?

      I’ve never tried that brand from London Drugs, but my friend bought me some magnetic polishes a few months ago but they didn’t work very well. Though I have seen some photos of people using other brands of magnetic polish that look really cool! If I ever find one that works well, I’ll blog about it for sure. Thanks for stopping by :)

    I love your blog! Great pictures.

    I’d love to know how you keep your fingers (cuticles) looking so amazing – even with all the nail polish you wear (and remove).

      Thanks Rory! Cuticle cream/oil is your best friend, and try not to cut your cuticles if you can. I like to push them back after a shower with my bath towel. It’s actually really simple! :) And I haven’t found that my nails have gotten any worse from using polish so often.
