Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection Skittles and layering with Nubar Black Polka Dot

Hello lovelies,

I'm excited to show you a preview of the new Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection! I've pre-ordered it and it came extra fast. I've paid £20 in total because I've bought the whole set.

I didn't have time to do full swatches so I'll show you at least skittles as who knows when I'll be able to swatch them...

Lucy's Stash - Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection



They are all pastel shades which resemble the last year's Ice cream collection quite a lot but shades differ a bit. What's new though is that each polish is scented. These are the shades and their scents:
Blue - Blueberry Muffin
Purple - Grape Juice
Pink - Strawberry Tart
Yellow - Banana Split
Green - Apple Pie

I couldn't smell the scents while painting but they didn't stink much. After the nail polish dried properly the polish started to smell very nice, almost no chemical smell. They also got a cute stickers at their caps and when you scratch the cap it smells as well. The smell of the cap is stronger than how the nail polish smells in the end.

The formula of these was good application-wise. I needed two thicker coats for the coverage in the pictures. If you are used to applying thin coats then you'll need three.

I couldn't resist to doing something with the skittles so I have applied one layer of Nubar Black Polka Dot glitter....further nail art and tutorial coming soon ;)

  9. Stupid question time: does top coating this varnish eliminate the scent completely?

    1. Hi Charlie, sorry for the late answer. The topcoat does tune down the scent a lot I'm afraid
