Models Own Mirrorball Collection

Hi Everyone!

You may or may not have noticed I have re-vamped my blog. I think this reflects my style better. The fact that I only had a right hand sidebar used to annoy me (I have a thing about symmetry) and now I've added a labels search bar, and a widget to show which posts are most popular each week. 

Let me know what you think about my new layout, and if you think there is anything I should change or add, by leaving me a comment. Or you can drop me an email at trulypolishedblog@gmail.com.

Anyway, as promised, here are my swatches of the Models Own Mirrorball Collection! This is my first time posting a whole collection at ones, and editing these photos took me AGES, that's why this post is so late, but it needed to be done. I won't go into huge details about each colour, they were all very alike formula wise. Great formula, I didn't need to dab anything on. The polishes dried really quickly, and relatively smoothly considering they have such huge pieces of glitters in them!

What I love about this collection is the shard type glitters. Each polish has a shard shape and they're colourful holographic glitter shards! They are so gorgeous!

I decided to make this post exclusively Models Own, so the layering colour is also Models Own in every picture. I layered two layers of glitter over the base colour in each photo. All photos are without topcoat.

Before I start the swatches, here is a collection of macro shots from the bottles!



Aren't they so beautiful? I love bottle macro shots, they really show off the glitter combination and give you an idea of possible layering undies!

Disco Inferno:

This has gold holographic shard glitter and green and orange hex glitter. To me this glitter mix screams both Halloween and Christmas, but as it's only October, I went for Halloween! I layered this over Zest-A-Peel.

Boogie Nites:

This has lilac holographic hex glitter with lilac bar glitter, magenta and blue medium hex glitter and pink small hex glitter. I layered this over Beetlejuice Purple Blue.







So there we have it, the Mirrorball Colelction. This is so beautiful, I'm so glad I bought it. The glitter combinations are different to anything I have already, and the limited edition metallic caps make them even more special!

The Mirrorball Collection retails for £5 per bottle here. It's currently out of stock but will be back online and in stores on October 4th, so not long to wait! 

These beauties are definitely worth a purchase. I don't know about you, but when the weather gets worse, I like to cheer myself up with some glitter!
