Models Own Sweet Shop nail polish review

If you like sweets and you like nail polish then listen up as I've got the perfect thing for you! Models Own have just launched a new collection of sweet shop inspired nail polishes*, each of which is scented like a sweet shop favourite when dry.

Models Own sweet shop scented nail polishes: fizzy cola bottles, gumball and liquorice

There are five shades to choose from:

Pear Drops - vibrant coral scented with pear drops

Fizzy Cola Bottles - a neutral brown-beige scented with cola

Rhubarb and Custard - dark red scented with rhubarb and custard

Liquorice Allsorts - an opaque black scented with liquorice

Gumballs - hot pink scented with bubblegum

I've been wearing Gumballs over the past few days and it really does smell like bubblegum when you wear it! The smell fades after about 12 to 24 hours depending on how often you wash your hands but it's definitely noticeable for the first day. If you use a topcoat this will dull the scent of the polish a little - I found it was much stronger when I didn't use my usual Seche Vite over the top.

The polish doesn't smell while its in the bottle so please don't try and sniff it then - you'll just smell normal nail varnish and probably give yourself a headache! Models Own have put a little scratch and sniff top on each of the lids so you can test out each scent before you buy.

It's pretty average for me in terms of wear time - I get about 2 to 3 days before any major chips start appearing, less if I have to do the washing up. 

I think this is a really fun collection and would definitely recommend it if like me you're a bit of a sweet-a-holic!  Each polish is £4.99 and can be found online from Models Own and in their bottleshops now. It will also be launching into Superdrug stores on 30th July. 

Do you like the sound of these sweet shop inspired polishes?

  1. I usually love Models Own but this is one collection that doesn't do it for me - though I seem to be the only one! I really don't like scented nail polishes as I don't see why sniffing your fingers all day is desirable ;) (and it means they're susceptible to picking up other scents) I also don't think any of the colours in this collection are particularly 'wow' shades that are any different to any of the other colours they already do/people have - most people already have black, red, coral and pink, and brown isn't on my list of 'to buy'.

    On the flip side, I love the photos you have taken for this post!

    Can't wait to see what they bring out next!
