Ice Neon.

I recently purchased the Models Own Ice Neon collection for my holiday. The colours looked amazing so I really wanted to get my hands on the box set, which was only £20 for the 5 colours and a clear top/base coat. The nail polishes are £5 each but there are usually deals in boots and models own website like 3 for £12. My favourite colours are Pink Punch and Bubblegum, my photo's don't do them justice as they look pretty similar in them but are in fact very different (these nail varnishes look best in outside bright light rather than indoors, they do look much more subdued indoors, hence the camera shots not being great). Bubblegum is an obvious pink pink and is fluoro, the Pink Punch is a pinky orange and a bit more subtle, they are both lovely and perfect for Spring Summer. The other colours are also really nice but I feel a full hand of Luis Lemon or Toxic Apple definitely need to be on tanned hands to look like you haven't got some weird illness. The Pukka Purple is a deep purple but I wouldn't say it was fluoro which is slightly disappointing but nothing worth complaining about as it still looks bangin'.

The colours do come out matte which I don't mind but if you are not a fan the top coat will come in handy to give it that sheen. The bottles also come in specially designed frosted bottles that you should keep in the fridge to keep the fluoro-ness from fading. I've heard this myth before with nail varnishes being kept in the fridge, but I always thought that was when I lived in much hotter countries. I'm not 100% sure if this actually works or if it is a slight gimmick but none the less I like the idea, so therefore follow the rules. If you are looking for a reasonably priced set that offers all the neons you need to see you through the Summer days I would recommend this set. They last well and only really need two coats to look opaque. Have you tried out these polishes? If so what did you think?
