Models Own - Golden Peach
I saw this colour a few weeks ago at my local boots, but i ignored it, figured it wouldn't suit me, and that it would take to many coats to hide any vnl, well i admit, i have to eat my hat, it is amazing, a perfect coral, warm, a coral base, with gold and coral shimmer, which was very hard to capture! i could wear this polish for a few days without thinking its getting boring!!! this is a total of 3 coats, and no topcoat!! i loved the finish!! 

however i was bored of it by the next day, so i decided to try the;

Models Own-Silver smash-up

well i don't own opi silver shatter to compare this to, but from looking at swatches of it online, i think the models own is more of a silver colour as apposed to the glitter in the opi, it does however give off a nice eye-catching shimmer to the nail, the cracking effect is ok, i tried both thick and thin coats, with the thick being on the top 2 nails and thin coats on the bottom 2, i think with this polish the thicker coats have shattered better, the smash-up defo needs a top coat of something, as it is a rough glitter feeling finish, yuck lol, the pics are minus a top coat, as i knew it wasn't going to be long!!! lol
