I have a feeling that the ‘gel’ type of nail polish will basically become the norm – who doesn’t want super shiny gel-like finish? I guess there are those that want a matte finish but overall, those who paint their nails are probably opting for as shiny and glossy a finish as possible. Personally, I love the finish of these gel polishes – they just tend to have overall better quality of finish to a standard shade. These Models Own HyperGel Nail Polish shades are no exception.
These are three shades from the original Models Own HyperGel range – the pink ‘Cerise Shine’, the blue ‘Blue Glint’ and red ‘ Red Lustre’. All pretty bright colours – creamy shades with a bright super-shiny finish. The gel finish on these makes them feel a little on the gelly sort of shade wise, but not as translucent as a typical sheer gelly. Just the sort of pigment than looks strong, but doesn’t need thick coats to be opaque if that makes any sense at all?
I may surprise you here and say that the blue shade is actually not my favourite from this trio – the red is! It’s a proper bright red. The sort that manages to be classic and make a bit of a statement at the same time. It’s a good ‘if in doubt’ colour as red always looks good. I love this for a bright pop of colour with a simple jeans and striped top outfit (which is basically my uniform).
All in all though, the quality and finish of these gel shades is fabulous – and hopefully soon gel will be the standard rather than just a range!
