Models Own Champagne

Today’s NOTD is Models Own Champagne, a gold foil. Now I don’t normally wear gold, I don’t think it goes with my skin tone, so it will be no surprise that this one was a present from my sister. But I popped this one for New Year’s eve mani and I was so surprised that it was lovely. Now, I’m probably wrong about this, but I think this is a cool based gold, whereas most golds are warm which is why I don’t like them on me. ( I’m never sure, if I get the cool/warm thing right, so please ignore the previous sentence if I’m talking twaddle! Up shot is that this is different to your usual gold!)
Let’s have some pictures, shall we. 
Up close and personal

and on the nail

and a little out of focus to see the shimmer,

The application on this was lovely, none of those usual brush strokes, you see in foils. The pictures show two coats. The wear one this was good for 4 days  and on the fifth day, 2 of my nails popped off (the polish that is and not my actual nails!) but it did withstand a whole day of cooking and all the hand washing and abuse that, that entails!

This isn't the only polish I got from my sister for Christmas, I got all of these!  She definitely knows what I like! 

Expect to see more of these in the coming weeks. My friend called over to my house on the day after Christmas looked at all of these sitting on the table and "oh, is this all your nail polish, no wonder your nails are a different colour every time I see you!", I sheepishly had to tell her these were only the Christmas new additions! 

Any of these you'd like to see?  Let me know and I'll add it to the list! 



  1. ooh the Model's Own is gorgeous. I think I have the middle bottle of Catrice (it's lovely on the nails btw)

  2. I don't know how I never say your comment, so sorry! It's a really nice gold colour.

    The middle Catrice is the only one I haven't tried yet, I'm now bumping it up the list!

  3. It's lovely isn't it! I loved this way more than I expected.
