NOTD – Models Own Thunder & Lightening

Hey guys, Sorry for the lack of COTW post yesterday. After a few too many cocktails for L’s birthday celebration on Saturday night I was too tired to write it.

Hope you all had a good weekend! We had a great day and night on Saturday. This week I finally purchased my first Mac products. I was so excited and may have spent a bit too much. I want so much more already. I love all there lipsticks. I’m going to do a Mac haul tomorrow. I’m so impressed with all their products and think I should have definitely gone there sooner. On Saturday after having our make up done we had cocktails and donned are pretty dresses in the evening! Did you go out this weekend?

Anyway on to today’s post. A quick NOTD for you, we are both obsessed with painting our nails and do it a lot! On Saturday I painted mine with Models Own Thunder and Lighting.

I bought this nail varnish at Christmas time, and it got put in my nail varnish bag and neglected. It’s a gorgeous black jelly like polish packed with a fine holographic glitter. In sunlight it sparkles a gorgeous mix of shades which is stunning, I can’t stop staring at my nails. When in false light it’s an equally pretty silver. I really love the contrast with the black. I’ve been hunting a black glitter for a while now but can’t seem to find one.

After repairing chips to it on Saturday night (I rushed and smudged them) it’s stayed put for a good three days. Due to the glitter in it, it does need a good top coat to make it shiny or it has that slightly rough texture. I’m loving the No7 one at the moment. It’s super shiny and a Bargain £2 when the boots vouchers are out. Also as the glitter is held in a jelly base, it did need 4 thin coats to get a strong black colour.

Do you like Models Own polishes? I’m getting more used to the bottle shape now. At first I found the lid uncomfortable to hold. I think they are great value for the quality and Models Own regularly have offers online like buy 5 and save £7 what a tempting offer!!

Love M
