Models Own – Obsidian | Swatch & Review

Hi everyone, another nail polish review blog for you today. 

I’m going to start off by saying that this is one of my all time favourites. It’s a black jelly base with silver glitter and holographic hexes. Here’s my swatch video. 👇

So, it’s a two coater. Which is good. It kind of comes out grey on the first coat, but the colour deepens on the second coat. You get a decent amount of glitter on the nail but it does take a bit of manipulation to disperse those holo hexes evenly. It is quite a thick polish, but it isn’t the type of formula that works with thin coats. I had to apply two relatively thick coats because the colour just doesn’t transfer to your nail, you get a tiny bit of streakage. (I don’t know if that’s a word but it is now. 😝) So thicker coats definitely works best, that’s probably why I only needed two. 

Like a lot of glitter polishes, it does dry matte and dull. But a thick coat of top coat works wonders. It really brings out that shine. 

This polish gets a 3 out of 5 from me.

Models Own – Sardonyx | Swatch & Review

Hi everyone, I have a nail polish swatch and review for you today. First of all, watch the video below to see how it applies and dries! 

So, it takes three coats to become completely opaque, but, if you’re not picky about coverage like I am, you could probably get away with two. 

On the first coat, it looks more of a pink colour. But the colour does deepen on the next coat. It isn’t one of those glitter polishes that requires manipulation to disperse the glitter evenly, you get a good amount of glitter with every stroke. The downside to this polish is that it dries very matte and dull. You will need a thick coat of top coat to sort this. However, once the top coat is on, it has a stunning colour. It’s relatively easy to apply, it is on the thicker side but it’s not gloopy at all. You don’t get brush strokes or streaks. Because it is a glitter polish, it is difficult to remove. But with a decent peel off base coat, it shouldn’t be a problem. 

Isnt it stunning? It’s a very classy looking colour. 

This polish gets a 3 out of 5 from me.
