It's time for my 3rd Littlewoods online Models Own nail polish review. First of all I wanted to quickly mention a few site updates I've made. I've re-designed the site to be fully responsive. It was sort of responsive before and also had a mobile version of the site but I've removed that now because it should adapt to the size of a mobile. I've also updated the lightbox so that when you click on one of my thumbnail images, the lightbox should now fit to the screen and also there is a pin it button so you can pin the full size picture. The front page now shows just a summary of each post so I can display more posts without it loading too slowly. Just a few little tweaks to hopefully make your experience on my site better :)
On to the important bit, the polish! Today I have the very vibrant Coral Reef. This polish does look red in some lights but it has a definite orange tint to it too, especially in bright light! I love red polishes and bright polishes so this is a definite hit to me, it'd look amazing on holiday for wearing on the beach!
Application wise, the polish is quite thin. You could probably get away with two thick coats but I ended up putting on 3 coats because I had some bald patches. But it goes on really smooth and applies easily so that wasn't too much of a problem. The dry time is fairly standard, but I always put a fast dry top coat on the final coat once it's almost dry as it saves accidental smudges!
I've found that these Models own polishes wear really well and don't chip easily! Which is great if you don't want to change your polish for a while.
I was really struggling with nail art ideas. I thought I'd done so many flower designs that I wanted something different. However, I want to make sure I show this beautiful polish off too!! In the end I grabbed my beloved Barry M Nail art pen in black and drew a silhouette of butterflies in grass. I've seen a few vectors which had inspired me. I dotted on tiny bits of gold paint to give it a bit of sparkle too! The butterflies aren't great in these close up photos but they are very tiny in real life so they don't look as bad at a normal distance!
I hope you've enjoyed my review and nail art. Would you wear Coral Reef?
