I am back with my first Saturday post in a while and it's the return of one of my favourite posts - Brand New Beauty. It's no secret that I have slightly fallen out of love with my blog at the moment. Don't get me wrong, I have still enjoyed writing and sharing with you what I love but I just haven't been able to keep inspired like I used to. I think this shows too in my lack of social media, posts per week and certainly my views. I love what blogging has brought to my life and I couldn't dare give it up. However, I know in order to make my blog amazing for you my loyal readers and myself, I need to set more time and love during the week to make it as good as it can be. Sorry for the rather long intro, as you are probally here just for the polish but you know I can ramble! 

The latest edition to the Models Own family are a set of 10 brand new vibrant polishes that....wait for it...blooming only contain real Diamond Dust! What ever next! 

I was lucky enough to sample two shades from the collection, Radiant Pink c/o and Carat coral c/o (£4.99, 14ml) and I have to say, I rather liked wearing Diamonds on my fingertips. With a collection of hues that are suitable throughout all the seasons, from pastels to these hot fiery brights, the actual Diamond Dust is very subtle. I am not sure how easy it is to see from my swatches above but the polish really does only leave a slight hint of shimmer, which runs through the polish very evenly. As I am not a pink gal at heart, the Carat Coral was my dream shade for the summer. Even on toes, I think it would look amazing, especially with a tan (as I type its chucking it down outside!)

The polish itself dries quickly and covers the nail well. I found the pink shade needed at least 3 coats to be fully opaque, where as the coral only needed two at max but after one my nail looked perfect.

The whole collection has just launched in Models Own Bottlestores today, they are available online now and then rolling out into Superdrug on the 24th September 2014. What do you think of these newbies on the block?

  1. I know what you mean about blogging - lately I've just not managed to find the time to do it! I don't get in from work and the gym until after seven, and then it's making tea, and then it's washing up and making lunch for the next day - sometimes the last thing I want to do is sit down and blog even if I have so much to say! I think it's good to have a break sometimes :)

    These shades look so nice, and I love how you have photographed them! I didn't think I was bothered about this launch, but the colours are just so vibrant! I love the coral!

  2. These shades look gorgeous! I haven't tried Model's Own nail polishes before as they're not available in Canada but I would definitely like to try some some day.

    I have been feeling less inspired as well with my blogging lately. It's been harder and harder for me to come up with new ideas for new posts. I think it has to do with just being overwhelmingly busy with work but when I'm in a creative mood, I go crazy with the post writing! xx

  3. I have feel the same atm about my blog. I have taken a step back. Ive had a lot going on family wise & Ive been finding it hard to get motivated to write posts. Hope you're OK & I loved your photos from Canterbury. It looks beautiful there.
    I really like the look of the pink shade.
