Another brand new collection from Models Own was announced on Friday - the Disco Pants Collection, which comes hot on the heels of the Models Own Diamond Luxe Collection, released last month. There are five brighter-than-bright shades in the Disco Pants Collection - Sound Factory* (blue), Paradise Grange* (green), Studio 54* (pink), Copacabana* (gold) and Roxy* (purple) - all inspired by famous New York nightclubs which had their heyday in the 80s era of disco pants, leg warmers and massive hair. Three have a creamy pearlescent finish and two have an ultra-fine glitter in them (which - yay - is not hard to remove like normal glitter polish).
Copacabana, Paradise Grange and Roxy
Roxy, Studio 54 and Sound Factory
Copacabana is "a shimmering golden topaz" - I'd say it was a very pale gold pearl with a metallic satin finish. At first I wasn't a fan when I just tried it on one finger, but when it's on all of them it's beautiful. Reflecting the light, it'll be a great polish for Christmas parties. Formula is good, with the photos above showing just two coats (no top coat).
Studio 54 is a "pretty pink diamond" - super bright and also with a pearl slightly metallic finish this polish really pops on an almost neon level. I thought it was a bit too bright - and so very 80s - for my tastes, but to my surprise it actually doesn't look nearly as tacky as I thought it would and I've chosen to wear it to start my week off with a bang! Photos show two coats without top coat.
Paradise Garage is a "mesmerising emerald green" - and wow what an emerald green it is. It's the last pearlescent metallic satin finish polish in the collection and it is a real stunner. Very bright, very 80s. It hardly needed two coats the coverage was so good.
Roxy is a "majestic purple amethyst" and is hands down my absolute favourite polish of the collection. I love this. It has a really fine pink/orange/purple glitter in it which is so beautiful when the particles catch the light and doesn't scream "I'm a glitter polish". It's not got a rough finish like a lot of glitter polishes and is really easy to remove. The photos show two coats, lovely coverage.
Sound Factory is a "deep sapphire blue" and, like Roxy, has ultra-fine shimmery blue glitter in it. Although blue is my favourite colour, I don't wear it on my nails that much - it's definitely a fun electric blue though and with Christmas coming up would be a great base for some white snowflakes over the top. Photos show two coats, no top coat.
Overall I am much more excited by the Disco Pants Collection now I've played with them than I was when I first saw them - my picks would be Roxy, Copacabana and Studio 54.
