Models Own Polish For Tans 2016

Models Own Polish For Tans 2016

Press Sample

Today's post is all about the new Polish For Tans shades from Models Own. It may not be feeling much like Summer in the UK right now, but there's always a reason for brights, and maybe you're one of the lucky ones with your Summer holiday still to come!

I explain a lot more about Polish For Tans in my original post (Models Own Polish For Tans 2014) and all the information in that post still applies, except I feel like the formula has improved since then; I found these shades much easier to apply, and didn't feel the need for a white base coat.

Boat Party is a bright orchid. Lovely formula, just 2 coats plus top coat

Beach Fire is a pale orange neon. I found 3 thin coats worked best here, plus top coat.

Surfs Up is a neon coral pink. 2 coats plus top coat

Models Own always nail it for Summer with the Polish For Tans shades, they've become my go-to for holidays and a couple always find their way into my suitcase. They're also great for gradient nail art and bright, fun nail art in general. The only thing is I think there's possibly too many pink shades! I'd love to see less pink in the next release and maybe more blues and greens.

I've put together a comparison of all the pinks across the 3 releases so you can decide for yourself if you need all of them. Let me know what you think!

Models Own Polish For Tans Pinks Comparison

My picks: Beach Fire, Surfs Up


- Available now from, priced £4.99 each
- Also available at all UK Models Own Bottleshops and in Superdrug



  1. They are absolutely stunning! I love Polish For Tans collections and it's so good to hear that the formula improved too. Thank you for the comparison photo, that's very handy.

  2. I can't get enough of neons. Give me all the neons! Beach Fire is the most unique here and I would love it.

  3. These are gorgeous! I love Surfs Up and Island Hop <3

  4. Gorgeous swatches Allie and although I agree there's a lot of pink, you know I'm a massive pink fan and therefore need them all.
    I hope however that PFT '17 contains some more unusual colours, a teal would be amazing.

  5. I'm in love, definitely need to get myself down to my closest bottle shop! :)


  6. These are such gorgeous colours. Perfect for the warmer months, but that said, I do love shades like this for anytime of year, especially for pedicures!

  7. These are so much fun and gorgeous for summer! I'm particularly loving that neon orange!

  8. I got all of these except Surfs Up as it was out of stock! I agree with more blues and greens next time though I still love these pinks. Gorgeous swatches as always!

  9. Oooh! I especially like Surf's Up and Beach Fire!
