Sparkler: Models Own Fireworks Collection*

It's day two of Models Own Week on Fundamentally Flawless! Today I've got more swatches to show you of the second of Models Own's new collections - 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."

I do love a glitter top coat - but I often shy away from them because they're such an effort to remove!  (I haven't yet tried the tinfoil method and I'm a bit too lazy and impatient to use the PVA glue base coat method).  Glitter top coats, however, are great fun and these new Fireworks glitters are no exception - and what I love about them is the difference in glitters in each polish.

The first is Sparkler - which just contains one glitter - holographic silver strands, which give rainbow colours in the light.  This is possibly my least favourite of the collection, just because there's no variation in the glitters like the other polishes in the collection.  That said, it is very pretty and looks awesome over a black base coat (I would definitely wear it over a coloured base coat rather than by itself).

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 took a bit of arranging to get it where I wanted on the nail but there was plenty of glitter so only one coat was needed on the nails which had a base coat.

I put Sparkler on top of a variety of bases to show how it looks - from thumb to little finger: Essie In the Cabana, Models Own Snow White, naked nail, Models Own Black Magic, Barry M Grey
