I bought Models Own ‘Smash Up Silver’ a good month or so ago and I haven’t got round to reviewing it yet! O silly me! Since I discovered Barry M’s nail effects a few months back, I was hooked. I loved experimenting with the black over different colours, and being amazed at the outcome. Soon later Barry M bought out different colours, and off I was to my local Boots to buy all of them and try them out. My flat mate then told me a few months ago that Models Own were planning on jumping on the nail effects hype, but bringing out different colours. Well I was more than excited! So when I saw that they’d released the silver and black, I was straight down to Boots to buy the silver. I already had black in Barry M, so I didn’t see the point in buying it in Models Own, but I’m looking forward to getting my hands on some of the other colours!
Just as quickly as I fell for Barry M’s nail effects, I’ve fallen for Model’s Own Smash Up. I painted it over Barry M’s strawberry ice cream, and the pale pink and silver colour go really well together. I find that it cracks more than Barry M does, but is just as easy to apply. I love the silver colour of it, its fairly subtle, so its not so in your face, but it also stands out at the same time. I can’t wait to get my hands on the other Models Own Smash Up colours now!
