Monday Manicure Nails Inc Bluebell & Models Own Blizzard

Models Own Blizzard available here

Nails Inc Bluebell

It's two for the price of one on today's NOTD!

I wanted to try out Models Own Blizzard* and paired it with this special edition polish from Nails Inc for InStyle called Bluebell.

It's such a beautiful colour it's a shame they didn't add it to the mainline, but looking on the net it looks similar to Models Own Blueberry Muffin and Beth's Blue, Revlon Charming, Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream and Essie Lapis of Luxury, although none of them seem to match the incredible violet undertones of this polish.

I used three coats to get a very full coverage although you could get away with two. The colour is more than just a pastel, baby blue colour. It's really a purple blue, with lilac/lavender/purple tones, dries really quickly, and wears really well with a topcoat.

Models Own Blizzard is a very densely packed, highly reflective silver hexagonal sequins and tiny silver specks. It is very thick but that means that one coat gives you the freedom to move the polish around on your finger to get the right look.

I love this colour combination too, somehow reminds me of winter, snowflakes and Mr Frosty!

Keep your eyes peeled for reviews of the rest of the Models Own trio :)
