Models Own have released yet another collection in recent weeks - and this is one I'm particularly excited about because I'll put it out there: I Love Neon. I can't get enough of it - and now that the days are getting longer and lighter and the sun is showing its face a little bit more regularly, there's absolutely no reason not to wear neon at any given opportunity! This collection is the Polish For Tans collection and differs from last year's Ice Neons collection in that these are more pastel neons, since they've been mixed with white. I have to say I'm not enamoured with the name of the collection - I know that they've been designed to enhance and compliment both real and fake tans, but I think it could potentially put people off buying them if they're neither tanned nor a tanner. That said, I think these polishes will look great on all skin colours (again, another reason the name is a bit silly!) - they're so bright, cheerful and really stand out.
As usual for a Models Own collection, there are five polishes - (left to right above): Shades (neon red), Bikini (neon yellow), Sun Hat (neon pink), Beach Bag (neon orange) and Flip Flop (neon green, not pictured as I figured I'd never wear it so I didn't buy it).
In all the photos above I put the polishes over a white base to make the neon pop more. They all have a similar formula, which is on the thick side so I only needed to do one coat over the white base. Out of all of them, I found that Bikini (yellow) was the most tricky to work with because it wanted to streak a little. Overall though, they apply really easily and dry quickly to a semi-matte finish.
My favourites are probably Beach Bag and Shades - Sun Hat is very Beach Barbie and I can't really see myself wearing Bikini (because it just makes me feel like I'm 15 again and have 'painted' my nails with yellow highlighter).
The Models Own Polish for Tans Collection is available now from the Bottleshops, online at www.modelsownit.com, in Superdrug and in Boots from April 16th.
