NOTD - Models Own and No7 Combo

I was looking through my nail polishes last night and stumbled across Models Own Indian Ocean still with it's cellophane wrapper on! Oops! I decided I must use it straight away so I didn't forget about it again. 

I remembered reading about it a while back and bloggers mentioned layering it over another polish as it's quite see-through. I went with this advice and decided to use No7 Stay Perfect nail polish in Minty Fresh as a base coat. Ideally I should have used two layers as this is not the most opaque polish either but I was too impatient and left it at one. I then painted one layer of Models Own in Indian Ocean over the top. As you can see, my nail tips are still visible under these two coats but I didn't mind too much.


Indian Ocean is so beautiful. I love the two toned effect in lilac and baby blue. It has a gorgeous shimmer to it as well. I couldn't stop looking at my nails at work today!

What nail polish combos have you been trying out lately?

  4. Gorgeous combination! What's the consistency of the blue base coat? I have Barry M Blue Moon which looks similar - I love the colour but its so sheer that I have to do about 4 coats until its opaque! I need a replacement of the same colour!

    1. It's quite thin and sheer to be honest! Maybe there is a similar shade by Models Own, they tend to be quite opaque (apart from the one in this post!) xx
