Following last year's release of the popular Polish For Tans collection, Models Own have followed it up with 5 brand new shades for Spring/Summer 2015! Polish For Tans was one of my favourite collections of 2014 so I'm so happy to see some more added to the fold!
I spent a good portion of last Summer wearing shades from the first PFT collection, I even put a couple in my suitcase to take on holiday! If you're interested in reading more about what "polish for tans" means then take a look at my original post, all the info is in there.
The 2015 shades are once again beautifully bright and summer-ready, though the formula seems different - the original formula was quite thick and dried semi-matte, whereas these are thinner and have a bit more gloss to them. If you own shades from both releases please let me know your thoughts on the differences, I want to know it's not just me!
The thinner formula makes them a bit easier to apply, and they're quite smooth with no drag. You'll need 2-3 coats of each depending on how thickly you apply, and if you want super glossy then add a top coat.
Malibu Pink is a bright and sweet pink - if you were having a cocktail party on the beach with Barbie (and why wouldn't you be) this is what she'd have on her nails! 3 coats plus top coat
Beach Hut is a super bright and attention grabbing neon orange. I can just picture my hand wrapped around a Piña Colada wearing this shade! 3 coats plus top coat
Sarong Wrap is a happy, bright sunshine yellow. Don't even try hating on it, I won't stand for it! 3 coats plus top coat
Cocktail Hour is a neon coral and the brightest of the bunch. I mean just look at it! It's already booked it's spot in my suitcase this year! 2 coats plus top coat
Lastly, Turquoise Sea is a turquoise leaning blue (although I see much more blue than turquoise) this one isn't particularly bright but a lovely colour regardless. 2 coats plus top coat
I'm a huge fan of some of the colours here, but I must admit I preferred last year's shades! And although they're advertised as neons, I would only really call Cocktail Hour and Beach Hut true neons. I appreciate the good formulas though and I definitely welcome the additions (Sarong Wrap, be still my heart) What do you think, will you be grabbing any of these?
My picks: Cocktail Hour, Beach Hut, Sarong Wrap
