Roman Candle: Models Own Fireworks Collection*

Continuing day two of Models Own Week.  This is the penultimate swatch from the new Models Own collection - Fireworks.  The collection is described as the "latest glitter explosion!  Five ultra fun nail polishes, formulated with a clear base - each polish is packed full of numerous colourful glitters all in varying shapes and sizes.  The range of multi-faceted fragments in each polish allows you to choose the intensity you want depending on the effect you are aiming to achieve."

The fourth is Roman Candle - which contains six glitters - long black and silver strands, tiny pink polka dots, orangey pink hex glitter and silver flecks.  Because of the tiny particles in it, it has really good coverage and I love looking at all the different colours and shapes in it.  This is one of my favourites in the collection - I particularly like the black strands which I think are quite unusual.  The polish goes on easily and the clear base isn't gloopy, but I found that it did take a little while to dry. The glitter didn't take too much arranging because it's quite a dense glitter - one coat is probably plenty (I did two below and it's a bit over the top)!

I put Roman Candle on top of a variety of bases to show how it looks - from thumb to little finger: Nails Inc Phoenix Place, Models Own Snow White, naked nail, Models Own Black Magic, Models Own Grape Juice.
