As a Christmas gift from my sister, I received a bottle of Model’s Own Disco Inferno Nail Polish. Due to having my favourite colours that I wear all of the time, it has taken me ages to get around to trying this one. This particular nail polish is the first in Model’s Own’s line of nail frostings. It can be purchased online currently for £5. Model’s Own do generally always have some kind of offer online though.
The nail polish comes in the usual Models Own nail polish bottle, which is round and made from glass. The bottle is clear with the Models Own logo on the front in white text while on the back is the company address and website information. On the bottom of the bottle you can find the name of the nail polish. The lid is white which matches the text on the front of the bottle. The bottles are very plain but it does make it possible to see the colour inside and it will match any other Models Own nail polishes that you may have.
This is not quite the same as a glitter nail polish but looks that way in the bottle. When looking inside the bottle before opening, this product looks like it is full of tiny pieces of metallic paper and gold leaf. The mixture of colours looks nice with golds, greens, reds and blues mixed in with each other. However, once you open the bottle and pull out the brush, it quickly becomes clear that this is not how the polish will look once on your nails. The brush comes out with barely any product on it, apart from clear nail polish.
After the first application, I was already disappointed. My nails barely had any of the colour on them. Mostly, they looked like they had clear polish on with one or two tiny bits of the metallic finish. After two coats, I was even less impressed. With two coats, my nails still were not covered and they looked extremely cheap and tacky. Think cheap Christmas decorations from a pound shop but worse. The Model’s Own website state that you can use this on its own or on top of another colour and I really wish I had used another colour underneath but didn’t have anything that would match to hand. I would strongly advise not to use this on its own as it doesn’t give the desired effect.
I did leave this to try before taking it off and it was a complete nightmare. The small pieces of metallic paper stuck to my nails like glue and I had a really hard time to get them all off. Not only does this nail polish look terrible but once you decide you don’t like it, it is so hard to remove which is definitely not a good thing. Unfortunately, I won’t be using this again.
