Pastels are a massive trend for Spring/Summer 2012 and about this time of the year I find myself longing for warmer weather to hurry itself up and adorn myself in summer colours in the hope it will help me forget the grey days of winter. However I don’t think I can quite get away with summer dresses quite yet but my nails are always currently painted with summer colours so you can imagine my joy when Models Own released a new range of pastel polishes entitled the Freshen Up range.
I love Models Own nail polishes and have a current obsession with pastels so you can imagine how excited I was to see a new array of pastel colours and before I knew it three of the new polishes were on their way in the post. There’s a range of five new colours and I decided to go for just three (being very sensible here) and went for the shades; Bare Beauty, Soda Pop Pink and Peaches and Cream. The colours are even prettier in the flesh and have the same great usual Models Own formula; creamy, opaque and fast drying. One of the many reasons why I love Models Own polishes so much! So what are the shades like as you can never quite tell online…
Peaches and Cream: I love orange nails, they scream summer and I instantly fell in love with Peaches and Cream. A pastel version of Fuzzy Peach also by Models Own that reminds me of peach sorbet and will look gorgeous accessorised with a summer tan.
Bare Beauty: I’m really loving nude nails at the moment, they look sophisticated and polished, but nude colours are usually quite grey toned and wintry. Bare Beauty is a peach toned nude which is so up my street it’s untrue, I’m so happy to of finally found a nude colour that’s suitable for the summer months too.
Soda Pop Pink: This is my favourite polish out of the three, a gorgeous raspberry pink which is unlike any other pink polish that I own and I own A LOT of pink polishes. I have a feeling this will be my nail polish of the spring/summer.
All of the polishes are gorgeous and as always I can never recommend Models Own polishes enough, I picked these up online on the Models Own website and got them for 3 for £12.00 which is a pretty good deal in my eyes saving yourself £3 (every little helps eh) Do you like Models Own polishes? Will you be buying from the new Freshen Up range?
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday, I’m finally getting over my cold (hurrah) and I’ve bought the perfect Spring dress for my baby sister’s Christening but now I am on a definite spending ban!! Have a great day 🙂
Disclaimer: I bought these polishes with my own money. 🙂
