I have heard some really good things about the Models Own Hed Kandi range so I popped into Boots a little while ago to check it out. Imagine my delight when I saw the range on offer - 3for2! I just had to buy a few things. I went for Hedonist and Bora Bora from the Hed Kandi range as well as this Artstix duo in Jade Stone and Snowflakes.
This picture doesn't do justice to Hedonist. I tried photographing it in all different kinds of light but my camera doesn't want to pick out the fluorescent tones. The shade is a neon pinky/red shade which is perfect for Summer Lovin' kind of nights. Bora Bora is a much more subtle polish with the tiniest little flecks of gold glitter. It is a really gentle glitter which works much better as a top coat over a colour rather than on its own.
There were a few shades to choose from in the Artstix range but I went for the Jade Stone/Snowflakes combo as I love a mint shade. Snowflakes was a bit disappointing as I had to work really hard to get the flakes of glitter out.
I did me a little glitter fade with Hedonist and Bora Bora which worked quite nicely. With the nail duo I just did a straight polish with a little glitter on my pinkie.
I like the consistency of Models Own polishes and think that they are perfectly priced. Jade Stone is one of my new favourite shades.
