Models Own – Chrome Indigo

You may have heard that Models Own were holding a half price sale, around the same time as they launched the Colour Chrome Collection.  Its a series of 10 chrome shades and because there were on sale, I bought them all…. shhh… don’t tell anyone!  We will get through them all over the next couple of weeks or so, but this is the first one – Chrome Indigo!

Gosh I do love this.  Its STUNNING on the nail, stunning!

Care is needed on application, chrome finishes dry fast and can drag leaving bald spots.  Speed is the key.  Thankfully the Models Own brushes are quite wide, so on larger nails its two wipes (one each side).  What you see above is two thin coats, over a base of Nailtiques 2.  No top coat here.

I did worry about wear time and apart from a small chip – my fault, I was using my nail as a tool – the polish wore solidly for two whole days.  Colour me impressed!  I hope this is the start of a beautiful relationship!  And I hear they stamp well, so this could be a winner all around!

For those of you in the US, my experience with these is very similar to that of Sally Hansen Color Foils. So if you missed some, or if you are in the UK lusting after them, these will fill that need!

Did you pick up anything from the Models Own sale?  Does the Colour Chrome Collection catch your eye?
