I'm constantly writing little bits of blogs on the 'notes' section of my iPhone on the go and i've got such a big list of things to write it spills twice over. Unfortunately i've a feeling this might be the last one (unless I can squeeze a cheeky one in tomorrow) until after the weekend as I'm off to 2000 Trees festival with Team Frank Turner (which mostly consists of me, my friend Jack, and Frank). But I'm going to keep a two day festival diary about my outfits, experiences and coping with seriously minimal makeup...eek. Needless to say i'm very excited although a tiny tiny bit nervous cause i've no idea how to get there just yet...i'm sure it'll get sorted. I'm sure... *does nervous twitching*.
However, I was very excited the other day to receive my first Models Own order. I bought one in store when it came to Boots in Oxford Street but this time I bit the bullet and ordered five brand new shades.
The shades I chose were Pink Blush, Raspberry Crush, Purple Poppy, Silver Spangle and Matt Black. In the photo above the first two look really similar but they're not at all, it was late at night and I had to take the photos indoors so no nice natural sunlight.
They're all lovely, some take quite a few coats to build up but the matte one especially gives a gorgeous finish. I am a magpie so anything with sparkles is a win, so of course I love Silver Spangle! Pink Blush is a true rose pink compared to Raspberry Crush which looks red in some lights, berry in others and almost fuchsia in others! Purple Poppy is a true rich blue purple. They are all lovely and i'm pretty pleased with the colours I picked! I'd recommend Models own polishes but like I said I do find it takes a few coats to build them up. They retail at £5 each.
And just to finish this blog post here are some photos of my life lately with little annotations :) Enjoy!
