I love painting my nails and this summer I went for quite bright and bold colours to match my summer clothes.
It was the colour that really attracted me to this nail polish, it is named Fuzzy Peach and it is quite a bold, orange/pink shade that looks really nice and vibrant in the bottle.
Applying this nail polish was really easy, the brush is a nice shape and holds a nice amount to nail polish to glide it onto my nails easily and evenly. I found that this nail polish stays quite smooth and does not get 'clumpy' like other nail polishes, which is an added bonus, as this can leave it very difficult to apply.
I found that this nail polish took a little while extra than I expected to dry, however I am probably spoilt by the 60 second drying nail varnishes that I usually use. However it was worth the wait as when this nail polish dried, it looked lovely on my nails. It keeps its vibrant colour that I described in the bottle and it has a quite shiny sheen of it. I will definitely be trying more of Models Own nail polish products because I am so happy with this one.
I found that after a few days wear and tear, this nail polish had not chipped as much as other nail polishes I have tried in the past, it has quite good staying power and I almost got a week's wearing out of it before I had to take it off and re apply it.
I bought this nail polish in Boots for around £5, I think that this was quite a good price for this nail polish as it is really good quality and the colour is really nice.
Overall I think that this is a fantastic nail polish, it is a really nice colour and there are quite a number of great shades on offer in this range is fuzzy peach is not your cup of tea. Also it is easy to apply and has quite good staying power. I would say this is by far my favourite nail varnish in my makeup bag at the moment and would recommend this range to anyone who likes painting their nails fun colours.

With it being summer and with a holiday coming up in the next few weeks I couldn't resist buying this Models Own nail polish in the shade 'fuzzy peach'. I tend to wear bright colours during the summer as they compliment a tan and brighten up any summer outfit. I chose the models own brand in particular as I have tried other colours belonging to this collection and have only had positive things to say about it.
I really like the simple packaging of this product - it is contained in a glass container with a plain white plastic lid. It simply says 'Models Own' on the bottle in bold, white text. The shade of the nail polish can be seen clearly through the opaque glass meaning that the white text really stands out against the bright background.
The applicator, like most other nail polishes, is contained in the lid of the nail polish. I have no problems with the applicator brush. The chunky lid is perfect for gripping on to and the brush itself is small but easily fans out when it comes into connection with the nail meaning that it allows for an easy, even application.
The colour itself should be 'peach' but I find that after a few coats of the nail polish it looks more of a medium orange colour which I really didn't want as I don't particularly want orange nails! The pigment in the colour only really surfaces after three coats which can be quite time consuming as it isn't the fastest drying nail polish taking over two minutes to dry properly.
This nail polish cost me £5 from Boots but I am very disappointed with the colour. It won't put me off buying different colours in this range but I certainly wouldn't recommend this particular shade.
I picked up this varnish recently when Models Own had a two for £8 offer on. They usually retail at £5 each for 14ml and can be found online and in Boots. The bright peachy orange colour instantly attracted me and I looked forward to trying it.
The applicator brush is of standard size and length so I didn't anticipate any problems with applying the varnish. The varnish itself is a decent consistency - not thin or thick and gloopy.
The first issue I had with this product was that the applicator loaded up too much varnish on the wand. Because of this, the brush needed to be wiped on the bottle a couple of times to remove the excess varnish - this would normally be fine, but this left not enough varnish on the brush to achieve a smooth coverage on the nail! It seemed that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get the right amount of varnish on the brush! As a result my nails were either drowning in polish or streaky, messy and uneven.
I thought I could salvage the first bad coating of polish on the nails with the second coat. I waited a couple of minutes for the first coat to try, then applied another coat- but the same thing happened, my nails looked uneven and streaky. Even after 2 coats the colour wasn't uniform and opaque, so I had to apply 3 coats before the colour became consistent- this took around 15 minutes to thoroughly dry. Despite the look of my nails, the colour was pretty, ever so slightly darker than the colour in the bottle.
Even my Seche Vite top coat struggled to salvage this uneven nail varnish, but it did help in smoothing over the lumps and bumps.
After all the coats of varnish and the effort, the polish had only been on my nails 2 days before it started to chip at the corners! A couple of days later I took Fuzzy Peach off altogether as the overall condition of the varnish on my nails looked cheap. Thankfully removing it wasn't nearler as stressful as applying it!
Fuzzy Peach was the first colour varnish that I had tried from Models Own, and quite frankly it has put me off trying any other products in their range :( Although I have recently read an article and it stared that some Models Own varnishes are worse than others in terms of application and coverage - Fuzzy Peach being one of the worse - typical! it is such as shames as the colour is gorgeous.
Overall, I do not recommend this nail varnish, there are much better and cheaper alternative available. It looks cheap on the nails due to the difficulty in application and for an RRP of £5, I would expect a lot better.
