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
Island Hop is a hot pink neon. 2 coats plus top coat
Barrier Reef is a vibrant baby pink. 3 thin 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!
My picks: Beach Fire, Surfs Up
