Models Own Fireworks Collection Swatches and Review

Today I have swatches of the Models Own Fireworks collection to show you. Lots of pictures and info ahead!

The Fireworks collection consists of 5 glitter toppers, all containing a myriad of glitter in different shapes and sizes in a clear base. Each one also contains bar glitter which gives them the fireworks feel!

It's best to layer them up to your desired coverage over a base colour (black is best if you want to echo fireworks) All of my pictures are 2 coats of base colour, 2 coats of fireworks and a top coat. 

Catherine Wheel contains 4 different glitters, including gold bar glitter and red hex glitter. Shown here over Models Own Peach Puff. 

Banger contains 5 different glitters, including long blue bar glitter, large blue hex glitter and smaller pink hex glitter. Shown here over Models Own Top Turquoise.

Sparkler contains just one glitter, holographic silver bar. Compared to the others, this one is quite boring. If you can get it in sunlight the holo bar glitter looks really good, but other than that it's not very interesting. Shown here over Models Own Black Swirl.

I used the flash on my camera for this one, looks like a disco on my nails!

Roman Candle is my favourite of these. It contains 6 glitters inlcuding black and silver long bar glitter and lots of different sized pink and silver hex glitter. Shown here over Models Own Lili's Pink.

Last is Rocket, which contains 7 glitters including red bar glitter, orange hex glitter and loads of little blue, green and silver pieces. Shown here over Models Own Black Magic.

My recommendations from this collection would be Roman Candle and Rocket, they really stand out! Formula wise I can't fault them at all, very easy to spread and not at all clumpy. I am not finding myself burnt out of glitter toppers just yet so these are a welcome addition to my stash.

What's your favourite and will you be picking any of these up?


The Fireworks collection retail for £5 each and are available from today in Boots stores, online at (individually or in a box set) and in all Models Own Bottleshops. They'll be coming to Superdrug on September 25th.
