NOTD: Christmas Nails #3 | Models Own Jack Frost and Utopia

 Christmas Nails #3
Models Own - Jack Frost (Wonderland Collection) and Utopia
RRP: £5.00 each

Ahhhh, 5 days until Christmas! Hands up if you're excited!
 
This nail combination is the second one from a pair of Models Own varnishes involving Utopia that I have loved to pieces; the first being Utopia and Ibiza Mix that you can see here: link. I find Utopia a little bit too bland to wear alone but it works really well as a base to a glitter top coat. Jack Frost is one of five nail varnishes in a new collection from Models Own - their Wonderland Collection. It is a very thick consistency, a little bit like a gel and contains translucent iridescent glitter particles that appear different colours in different lights, and also a different colour depending on your base colour, for example if you applied it over a blue base colour then the glitter would be blue, the same with red or pink, etc.
 
I spent a long time deciding on my base colour and swatched many different shades on a nail wheel, almost leaning towards an light blue for an icy look, but eventually settled on the neutral nude shade of Utopia for a very frosted shade. I feel that this looks very 'Snow Queen/ice palace'-esque and is so suited for these chilly December days. It's very seasonally appropriate making the tips of my fingers twinkle away in different colours like Christmas lights! There's hints of blue, green, yellow and pink, and it's very pretty.
