Models Own Copper Pot
Advantages: Long lasting
Disadvantages: Needs two coats to get a good colour
I love Models Own nails polish and their range is very extensive. I was looking for a new colour to wear to work and picked this out in Boots, you can get a 14ml bottle for £5 (May 2013). The nail polish comes in a clear glass bottle so you can see the colour and it has a plastic white screw top lid, underneath is attached the application brush.
The brush is quite small, but has a lot of thick bristles that allow you to apply the polish in one stroke, if you have small nails, as I do, the brush holds the nail polish well and this allows for even coverage of the nail and tends to take about two brush stokes and three for my thumb nail.
Copper Pot forms part of the 'Beetle Juice' Models own collection and it is based on the shimmering dual colours of a Beetle, the range also includes 'Aqua Violet, 'Purple Blue', 'Tropical Sun', and 'Indian Ocean'. I have been impressed with the colour and have picked up a few others in the range.
The colour is described as 'a complex shifting colour with flashes of vivid tones and ethereal hues giving it a shimmering duo chrome finish' - basically it is made up of two shimmering colours that when you move your hand around the light will show it looks like you are wearing different colours that contrast, yet complement each other and your nails will look fab, like the wings of a beetle ready to fly off.
I find that two coats give me a great depth of colour and that the nail polish tends to last for around 3-4 days before it needs either touching up or removing. I have also used it on my toes and it lasts a bit longer, around a week. To remove the nail polish I just use a supermarket own brand of nail polish remover and a bit of cotton wool, the colour comes off well and does not stain my fingers, though I always wear a base coat to help protect my nails.
Overall I would recommend this nails polish to others as it is a great vivid colour that you is very versatile. It is good quality, lasts well, removes easily and is well priced.
Summary: Well priced, shimmering colour that lasts well
