Pick A Polish: Models Own - Coral Glaze

Hi loves. I hope you've all had lovely Mondays. I have felt a bit under the weather today, so I am glad it's a bank holiday so I can hibernate in my flat. The weather is rubbish here so I'm not missing much outside!

For Pick A Polish this week I shall be showing you Models Own - Coral Glaze. This was released earlier in the year as part of Models Own's Hypergel line which are designed to be gel effect polishes (much like the Gelly's from Barry M). I've used this colour in nail art before but I haven't used it on it's own yet, so I was excited to give this a go.

Coral Glaze is a pink toned coral creme (surprise surprise). I used two coats without topcoat for this swatch. It definitely has a lovely, high shine finish so it does what it says on the tin. The opacity was nice and it applied pretty well. It was a tad thick but not so much that it was an issue. I often find Model's Own a bit hit and miss but I thought this polish was great.

I had an idea for a drag marble french tip so I thought I would give it a go. I used my V-shaped Nail Stickrs* to mark off my tips.

I then added blobs of Coral Glaze and Sinful Colors - Snow Me White to the tip area.

Finally I mixed the blobs together using a needle to create the marbled effect.

I am a bit of a sucker for corals, so I loved this polish - this is one of Model's Owns better releases. I was happy with my nail art also. It was so easy, but I still think it looks pretty good. It would be a great technique for beginners to try.

Have you tried drag marbling before? Let me know what you think in the comments.

See you next time.

  1. Oh wow, I love that colour! I've tried drag/pin marbling before, but never thought to try it just on the tips- it looks lush! I may have to give it a go some time ^^
