Models Own HyperGel: Manicure Monday

Models own have released a range of ten ‘HyperGel’ Nail polishes which basically have a super glossy, gel-like finish. I was actually quite impressed by the shade range as they have some great bright colours as well as a white although I do feel it is missing some darker shades.

These are very pigmented and one coat is enough in all the shades I used, I didn’t get a chance to wear mine for a very long time but they are suppose to be chip resistant and long wearing. They applied beautifully with no streaks and dried to a perfect shinny colour. As they are inspired by the move towards in salon gel manicures (but without the UV light) they are quite thick on the nail which I actually quite like.

I have three colours and although I usually really dislike pink and red nails I would quite happily wear these as the colour is so vibrant. My favourite out of the three though is still Blue Glint and I am sure I’ll wear it lots as soon as the weather clears up a little.

Cerise Pink

Blue Glint

Red Lustre

Edit: These have a ever so slightly angled brush which actually makes application even easier.

The Barry M Gellys come to mind when I think of these but I actually think I prefer these just a little more, they are probably the easiest nail polish to apply and I really like the thicker, shinier finish!

I’ve also got my eye on all the other shades from the range and I can’t wait until the come out later this month, (8th Feb Bottleshops, 12th Feb Online, 19th Feb Boots, 12th Mar Superdrugs) and will also retail for just Β£5!

What do you think of these nail colours? Have you tried any gel-like polishes?

    I think it is important to have a nail polish to have a nice brush applicator to make it easier to paint your nails. I love the BarryM gelly polishes but i really want to try these Models own polishes too because they look a bit more glossier and thicker. All three of these colours are so pretty~ my favourite has to be the red lustre~ Great for valentines day ^^ <3

    Thank you for the post, have a lovely day! πŸ™‚
