Nailed: Models Own Tropical Sun

Following on from my post about Models Own 'Indian Ocean' last week... The second colour I picked up from the new Beetlejuice shades was Tropical Sun.

I don't normally go for orange polishes very often but I think this is absolutely stunning. It's a slightly metallic peachy-gold duo chrome with tiny flecks of silver glitter in the mix to add a bit of sparkle.

I think it's simply perfect for spring and summer!
As with a lot of semi-metallic polishes, it can apply a little streaky but I find a good topcoat (hello Sally Hansen Insta-Dri!) solves this problem completely. I think it wears really well too. So far I've been nothing but impressed with the Models Own polishes, I'll definitely be checking them out again in the future!

The Models Own polishes are £5 from Boots and currently on 3 for 2.

  1. Ooh what a gorgeous colour! I love those polishes apart from the smell - wish they could do something about that! The darker colours also go on with 1 or 2 coats which is great when you're in a hurry.

  34. Hi Fleur, I am a loyal subscriber on your 2 channels on youtube but for some reason have never been on your blog! But, oh my what a lovely blog it is, I swear my friend and I have been sitting here for the past 2 hours looking and reading through each blog posts. I absolutely love them all! I really value your opinions and i am into a lot of the products you like (currently saving up for the Chanel vitalumiere aqua foundation). Thank you so much for putting in the time and effort on these blog posts as well as your genuine, kind and really fun videos.

    Definitely going to try this polish and the Indian Ocean one as well as your two Topshop polishes (hidden treasure and razzmatazz?.. not sure if i spelt that right)

    Thanks again!
