Hey everyone! It's nearing the end of the month again, and that means it's time for another Paint All The Nails link up, and this month the theme is 'neon'. I wasn't actually going to join in this month because I don't own many neons at all and I didn't think I could create anything worthwhile. Just as I'd given up on the idea of participating, the new Models Own - Polish For Tans* collection dropped through my letterbox. I haven't received anything from Models Own for at least a year, if not two, so it was a nice surprise and also a strange coincidence. I felt like I had to create something using them for the prompt as it felt like fate, and so here I am! I used all 5 polishes from the collection for this nail art, and I'm still wearing them now. I'm not used to wearing something so bright so they keep catching me by surprise, but I ended up really liking them.
I used Models Own - Barrier Reef* for the base, then I used Boat Party*, Island Hop*, Surfs Up* and Beach Fire* along with a stamper to smush the colours together. Then I used acetone and a flat brush to create the negative space. Finally I finished with a coat of Seche Vite, and then a coat of Barry M - Matte Topcoat.
Also the neons were apparently too bright for my camera because the photo above looks super strange, but the one below is a bit more accurate.
The collection is available now online, and from all Models Own UK Bottleshops for £4.99 each.
