Just in time for party season, Models Own have released some shiny new polishes into the HyperGel range - this time with added sparkle! I've got all 5 of the new GlitterGel shades to show you today
I'm happy to see both Barry M and now Models Own spicing up their gel lines with glitter; I love both the Gelly an HyperGel ranges but it's exciting to see something different. The GlitterGel range have the same smooth gel-like consistency as the regular HyperGels and dry smooth to the touch, and since they contain no gritty glitter, removal is easy.
Glitter payoff is excellent, each bottle is packed full. The formulas are consistently good throughout, the thick brush can make getting a neat line around the cuticle a bit of a pain when it's loaded with glitter, but it's nothing a bit of cleanup won't fix. The finish is smooth and glossy enough to not need top coat (unless of course you prefer to use it, as I do, but I've shown my swatches without)
Sheer Sparkle is a champagne gold with gold shimmer and gold flakes in a clear base. As the name says, this one is sheer and I used 3 coats in my pictures. I didn't like how sheer it is at first but the effect has really grown on me; it gives a beautiful clean, classy look and the visible nail line is barely noticeable in real life. I can see this going beautifully with a Christmas party dress!
Starburst is a black base with gold and blue flashes. There's bits of green in there too but sadly not noticeable on the nail! The gold shimmer is lovely against the black base and the blue flash really makes it pop. 2 coats, no top coat
Crystal Pink is a sheer pink base with loads of pink and silver flakes. This is quite sheer but as with Sheer Sparkle, I love the effect it creates, and I'm impressed at how smooth it dries considering how many flakes are in it! I used 3 coats, no top coat.
Petunia Glitz is a hot pink base with pink flakes and silver sparkle. This one is super bold and out there, and again packs in so much sparkle! 2 coats, no top coat
Lastly, Red Carpet is a rich red with red/pink flakes and a bit of silver sparkle. We all know I'm not a fan of reds, but this is nice nonetheless! 2 coats, no top coat.
Models Own have definitely got us covered for the festive party season, whether you're a fan of subtle sparkle or statement pinks and reds. Let me know what you think!
