Models Own Fuzzy Peach – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 24 - 2010

Now that Models Own have expanded into Boots stores nationwide, their legendary polishes are a whole lot easier to get your hands on!

The range is simply quite mind boggling, with a shade for every occassion.  They also sell other cosmetics including eye and lip products and I have a particularly lovely neon pink lip product to show you very soon!

I was sent this Models Own shade in Fuzzy Peach and it’s a touch more neon in real life than my photo shows… the colour is pretty spot on, but it’s a little more vibrant in person.  Application was….interesting.

First 2 coats were streaksville.  Worse than Eyeko’s streakiness…. I laid down the first coat… waited 10 minutes and despite feeling pretty dry to the touch, I got some crappy cuticle drag on the second coat.  Thankfully the third coat evened everything out enough for me to be satisfied with the finish but I made sure to top everything off with a quick dry top coat.

Put it this way, I was a bit disappointed with the formula.

However, there’s no denying it’s one helluva colour for summer!  Someone with a tan and warmer skin would knock ’em dead with this on their tips.

Models Own Fuzzy Peach is £5 and available online and instore at Boots.

    I also applied this yesterday for the first time and mine was streaky as hell too with the first 2 coats. It did even out on the first coat but I didn’t really like the finish on it with 3 coats.

    I’ll give it whirl another time though ha.

    I can’t find models own anywhere near me… I’m going to have to go and hunt these bad boys down!

    Sorry that was meant to say “It did even out on the third coat”

    My Boots doesn’t stock MO. It only just got Barry M! This week! This looks gorgeous. I am such a sucker for oranges and peaches in nail colour but my skin hates them.

    It’s so odd, nearly everyone i’ve spoken to has had problems with the Models Own formula, either with it streaking or taking forever to dry. But i find them fantastic! I have a tonne of them and they dry quickly and smoothly!

    Application problems aside, the colour is very beautiful!

    I love the MO shade range, it’s just fantastic but I too find that you need a good few coats to make the most of it. For the price though, I think that’s expected.

  8. Formula aside, this is one of the prettiest polishes I’ve seen in ages :O
