Models Own Wonderland | Jack Frost and Northern Lights


More nails! Yes, more nails! I've developed a new love for Models Own nail varnishes after a little splurge during their 50% Summer Sale and I've loved all of the ones I have tried so far so I'm pretty certain that my little collection of them will continue to grow, and grow, and grow!

Models Own recently brought out their Wonderland collection just in time for winter and the Christmas season, and when could you ever need glitter in your life more than you do at Christmas? The 5 piece collection consists of 5 different glitter polishes, all completely different styles of glitter which makes a nice change from just one polish in a variation of shades. Of the five beautiful polishes; Jack Frost, Blizzard, Northern Lights, Southern Lights, and Snow Flake; I showed some restraint and only purchased the two that stood out to me the most: Jack Frost and Northern Lights.

Jack Frost, pictured below, is described as 'a wash of iridescent soft sparkle in a cloudy translucent base' and is very sheer and only really suitable to wear over a base colour. It gives a lovely pearly glittery finish with hints of blue and purple and is great for adding a bit of sparkle to your base colour.


Northern Lights, pictured below, is my new absolute favourite shade ..ever! Described as 'a fine holographic multi-tonal glitter with a pink finish' it is far more opaque than first expected and can very easily be worn alone and just two coats can give opacity similar to the colour shown in the bottle. As described it is a fine glitter and a variety of different colours but predominately pink and the range of colours that catch lights different definitely give appropriateness to the name 'Northern Lights'.


Swatches

These swatches bug me because they're not fantastic quality and haven't at all picked up the fine details at all so don't do these gorgeous glitters the full justice that they deserve, but I hope you can get the jist of it them from my combined cheap camera and bad photo taking skills!

Have you got yourself any of these polishes yet? 
If not, which of the Winter Wonderland collection do you have your sights set on?

  4. Love the look of Jack Frost would look lovely over a white base coat. It would be a really subtle look.

  17. I brought these two before even reading this review lol!
    My favourite shade EVER is northen lights! Its so beautiful & gets me loads of compliments!
    I'm wearing Jack Frost over a turquoise-y blue colour right now, and it really lightens the base colour, bringing shimmers and glitter!
    I've also tried Jack frost over a pink, and it looked brilliant!
    I've found that the jack frost white colour is so.. transparent that it looks like the base colour. So I'm wearing a green, the glitter looks green etc!

  18. @Nic Nac Noo You should treat yourself, they're gorgeous and £5 each is a bargain! x

    ReplyDelete
  19. @lolakate It is! And I've since found that it changes colour depending what your base colour is, e.g. over a black or blue polish its a dark glitter :) x

    ReplyDelete
  20. @TheImperfectBeauty Hahaha! brilliant! I don't mind taking 100% responsibility for this :) x

  21. @abeautifultask That's how I've worn it recently - over white and it reaaally is beautiful! Looks like I've got snowflakes or frost on my finger tips haha x

  32. @Maya Oh I know exactly what you mean, I put Jack Frost over a navy blue yesterday and wasn't quite expecting for the glitter to turn blue too because I didn't realise it was translucent! Its so gorgeous though, I'll try it over pink next :D x
