NOTD: Model's Own Green Flash

The dreaded flu has got me, so I couldn't make my YSL manicure yesterday. I had already painted the perfect picture in my head of the teal blue nail polish with the gold tips. Hey hoo, I'll have to get myself better as quickly as possible so I party with YSL Rock & Baroque nail colours.

In the meantime, to cheer myself up, while I drunk a mug of Lemsip (btw I hate Lemsip), I dug out this Model's Own polish I picked up earlier in the week. Its called Green Flash. A lime green with a touch of yellow currents and silver shimmer.

I still haven't decided whether I like green on me and I have tried many, many greens. My last go was with OPI's Jade is the New Black. Even though I got lots of compliments, I'm still undecided. Put it like this, it wouldn't necessarily be my first choice. But this green is bright, glittery and shimmery and the magpie in me was instantly drawn to it. I'm always giving greens 'one more go.'

The colour looks exactly as it is in the bottle, which is a good thing as its always a bit disappointing when you put a colour on an it looks different to whats in the bottle. Though the first coat was a tinsy winsy bit streaky (I think because of the glitter), but on the second coat it was fine and it produced this metallic foil finish look. I finished it of with Essie's Good to Go top coat.

I'm not a fan of metallic looking colours, so this green is out for me, but I do think is very pretty. What do you think?


  1. That looks really pretty. I'm not good with blues and greens myself but like the idea of them

    I hope you're feeling better soon! x

  2. I love it! Don't think my local Boots has this shade in yet. Will have to go on the mooch...

    ps - get well soon

  3. @ModestyBrown: I agree its a pretty colour, but not for me, but I live in hope that I (and you) will find the right shade at some point.

    @LeanneOCD: Glad you love it. Are you a fan of metallics? If you do pick one up, let us know how you get on!

    ps - I'm still on the lemsip and my top half is slathered in Vicks vapour rub :-( Should be fine in a couple of days x

  4. Err I don't mind metallics to be honest. I'm a dark varnish kind of gal. Although I am trying to branch out into different, brighter colours. This looks quite unique, so I think that's why I'm drawn to it. My Boots has only just got in the Models Own concession, so I hope they get this shade soon!!

  5. Now is a great time to try different brighter colours. This one looks silver at night for some reason. The boyfriend said he woke up one night questioning why I had tin foil on my fingers!Glad your Boots has Model's Own, mine is yet to be stocked.....

  6. Hahaha! Poor boy! The Boy was pretty shocked when I came home after a night out wearing numerous glow bracelets (don't judge me...I can feel you judging me!), he half woke up and decided he could see UFO's dancing around the bedroom... I was peeing myself laughing. Boys eh, what would you do without them??

  7. lol! I don't think we could live without them,as much as we like to think we can :-)
