Models Own Speckled Egg Polish Collection

Polishes with the finish of Easter Eggs… the perfect post for Easter Sunday no? Of course, Easter isn’t really just about the four day weekend and over-indulging in chocolate – but for the sake of this totally shallow and beauty focussed blog we’re going to talk about these three nail varnishes and how perfect they are for Easter.  These are three of the shades from the Models Own Speckled Egg collection – each with a pastel base colour and black matte glitter throughout. Creating a speckled effect on the nails – they’re not the first to do this, with Illamasqua (amongst others) creating this look previously. But these are the latest in the more afforable market and have some pretty cute colours in the collection.

Finish wise, they are quite sheer – they do have to be, if the pigment was thicker it would block out the effect of the black. But if you don’t fancy tonnes of layers, you could always do a base of a cream colour that’s a match for the polish shade and then layer the speckle over the top. Each swatch above shows two coats and you can see how on the yellow and the turquoise especially it is a little sheer.

The three colours shown are Lilac ‘Swan’, Yellow ‘Goose’ and Turquoise ‘Magpie’. My favourite is definitely Magpie, followed closely by Swan… I’ve never loved yellow, but for those that suit it this is a nice mid-shade yellow colour!

What do you think of these speckled finish? Like them… or prefer an edible sort of mini egg…?!

    These aren’t my cup of tea personally, but I can see why others may like them! I’d rather the edible version 🙂

    I was thinking about buying some of these yesterday but seeing as I’ve bought nearly 10 nail polishes over this weekend alone I thought I’d better leave it! However I love the finish of these!

      10 in one weekend! That’s impressive!

    I fell in love with Magpie as soon as I saw it, which is a little unusual as I’m not usually keen on green nail varnishes. I held off until I had a little bit of spare cash to treat myself to it and then discovered that it’s pretty much sold out everywhere including the Model Own website. Rather strangely though (but also luckily for me) I then found about four in my home Boots, so I now have my hands on it 🙂

    These are wonderful! Magpie is very sweet and I’ll be rushing right out to get it!
