So, there we have my brand new 14 nail varnishes from the Models Own 50% Summer Sale. I made an incredibly dramatic saving of £35.00 on this haul!! I daren't tell my mum that I spent nearly £40 on a nail varnish order but my friends and boyfriend all think that I'm crazy. Before this I had never, ever owned a Models Own nail varnish before and a lot of them are quite well known such as Eutopia and Mushroom, and especially the Hed Kandi collection (Ibiza Mix in particular) so they were ones that I knew I had to try out and see if I loved them as much as everyone else does. The rest of them were more of a 'see the colour, like the colour, order the colour'. I definitely had A/W in mind when I was ordering the likes of 'Gun Grey' and 'Mixed Up', but I also wanted year round brights and pastels. Atleast now I have lots to play with and don't need to be buying any more for a while.
I put off doing this post for over a week because I ordered a large pack of nail wheels from eBay so that I could swatch the colours but they still haven't arrived yet so I decided to go ahead and post without swatches. Knowing my luck the nail wheels will arrive tomorrow!
So, did you jump at the chance of half prices nail varnishes like me?
And someone please tell me they ordered as many as 14 so I don't feel alone!
Link me your own hauls too please - I'd love to see!
And don't forget that I am currently running a celebratory 200 followers GIVEAWAY that ends at the end of this month.
Enter now if you haven't already!


  1. The Ibiza Mix looks lovely but is a right bugger to get off :)

    I’m also running a giveaway so would love if you could enter! http://champagnelambinibudget.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/models-own-giveaway-in-fuzzy-peach.html

  2. they all look so lovely, I was on the Models Own website earlier on but almost all of the nail colours are out of stock now. I can completely relate to spending almost £40 on nail varnish, I spent almost the same recently on Barry M nail paints lol. I bet you're going to have fun testing all of those out, you'll be spoilt for choice <3 xx

  3. Love those colours
