Models Own – Red Alert NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 18 - 2010

Application was smooth enough on this 4-coater, but the formula was a little thinner than I’d have liked.  It has an almost semi-jelly finish with a undoubtedly glossy sheen.  Red Alert is an orange-based red that somehow manages to look ok on my skintone.  It reminds me of a 1950s pin-up red and I’m a definite fan of the shade.

I have an issue with longevity, suffering a chip within 24hrs of application is not a way to win me over, but strangely enough tip wear was non-existent even after a full 48hrs.  If you’re looking for a hot red with retro leanings for your tips or toes, definitely consider Red Alert by Models Own.  But maybe employ a good top coat.

Available from the Models Own website, priced at £5

    I got this colour too and absolutely love it on swatches but i haven’t tried it on my nails yet, hope i don’t need 4 coats!

    Very stunning indeed. I can’t wear bright colours anymore due to my job. Gutted as I adore colourful nails.

    I’m in love with Models Own’s nail polishes! I’ve used some of them and I didn’t need 4 coats O.o …However, this one seems really nice on your skin tone =)

    It looks absolutely gorgeous on you, but it would not be a shade I would rush and buy. You make it look classy, but I can already picture some teens (model’s own being so affordable) using and make it look a bit tacky. This gets my thumbs up on you, but i would prefer to wear a blue-toned red to wear on myself.
