Models Own Neon Pink Leopard Nails

I've done a fair few Models Own posts in the last week... but that's because I just love their polishes! When I bought their pastels last week, I also popped an Ice Neon into my box of 6 and since I took off my Easter rainbow gradient last week, this pretty pink neon (Bubblegum) has hardly left my fingers.  I just can't stop looking at it!




It's quite thick to put on, but it's smooth and even though it's quite opaque, the above photos show three coats for complete opacity and brilliant pop.  It dries to a matte look (earlier in the week I wore it with Butter London PD Quick top coat and it looked equally awesome), though has a bit of sheen.

I was more than happy to wear it on its own with no nail art throughout the week, but I couldn't resist having my first go at a bit of leopard print spotting (with a little help from this Nail Art 101 tutorial).  I used the Ice Neon Bubblegum base, with dots of Models Own Strawberry Tart (from the Fruit Pastels collection) and then used the Models Own Nail Art Pen in black to accent the spots and fill in the gaps.

I have now finished it off with two coats of Seche Vite, but it was too dark to take photos. I'll add them tomorrow and maybe see what it looks like mattified too!




This photo shows the neon pop-ness of the polish quite well!





So, there you have it, a neon pink leopard all over my nails. Have you ever done a leopard print mani? Pop your link in the comments below so I can have a look!

I'm linking up with Fabulous But Evil's Nail Files with this mani - come check out what everyone else has been up to!

    1. Thanks! Well it's a UK brand - they have a bottle shop in Westfield White City in London and they sell them in selected Boots stores and online on their website (http://www.modelsownit.com/) but due to new postal regulations in the UK they can't post abroad at the moment. Their customer service is great, though, so maybe tweet the. (@modelsown) and see if they have international plans?
