I wore a black and red tartan Hobbs dress to work the other day so wanted some nails to coordinate with it, but not be too over the top (or take me too long!) This is what I came up with - on my thumb and ring finger it's OPI Bastille My Heart, index and middle fingers it's Models Own Sardonyx* and on my pinky it's Models Own Obsidian*.
I've reviewed Models Own Sardonyx and Obsidian here - I haven't used them for a while and they're now a bit gloopy. I think it's possibly due to the density of the glitter in them. They still worked fine, but they were pretty thick to apply. OPI Bastille My Heart is my new favourite red for winter - it's slightly pearlescent, but it's such a beautifully rich red (and I'm not a red polish girl as a rule - but I think I found my red!) It goes on smoothly, but needs a couple of coats to look its best. The Models Own Velvet Goths dry to a matte finish, so I topped all the nails with a coat of No 7 Stay Perfect Quick Dry top coat, which is still my favourite!
