Models Own Grey Day
Advantages: Good colour depth
Disadvantages: takes a while to dry between coats
I was given this nail polish by my sister recently, I noticed that the price can vary and that currently you can buy the nail polish from www.nailpolishdirect.co.uk for £4.75, or Amazon for £6.70 (May 2013).
I have tried other Models Own products and have been fairly happy with the colours, application and general day to day wear of the product. The nail polish comes in a clear glass bottle which allows you to see the colour of the nail polish and has a white plastic screw off lid, underneath the lid is a small, but fairly robust application brush that is easy to use, holds the product well and does not leave small stray hairs behind to mess up the look of your nail or generally just make nail polish application more difficult.
The nail polish is quite thick and is easy to apply, evenly across your nail, I find that two coats are needed to give a good depth of colour and that you will need too invest a good 15-20 minutes drying time between coats to get the best results, due to the thick consistency of the polish.
The colour has a matte finish and looks like a lovely soft grey that is good to wear for work and also casually at the weekend, as it tends to go with most colours. I have a very busy life style and tend to get around 3 days out of this nail polish before I see the odd chip, but then I do spend a lot of time with my hands in water, so it may last longer if you have a more sedentary life. As with all nail polishes, it smells quite strong, but I find that it is easy to remove with nail varnish remover, I tend to use a supermarket own branded remover on a bit of cotton wool, which I hold on the nail for a few seconds before removing the polish. I have tried this nail polish on both my finger and toe nails, with good effect, but my feet are pretty white at the moment, due to the lack of sun and I found the colour washed out my feet, so its best used on your finger nails in my opinion.
Overall I would recommend this nail polish to others as it is a versatile colour, easy to apply and remove, is well priced and lasts ok.
Summary: Decent nail polish
