Models Own Scented Nail Varnish

A couple of weeks ago I purchased two Models Own Scented Nail Varnishes from Boots. I purchased the shades (or scents as you might call them) 'Blueberry Muffin' and 'Strawberry Tart', I was so excited to try these out as I love having different coloured nails and having a scent would be even better right? Anyway, as I applied the varnish onto one of my nails, I realised that the varnish was very, very runny and once I had finished all nails, the varnish was practically transparent! Not good. I had never purchased a product from Models Own before, so I decided to apply an extra coat to see if this would do the trick and make the colour stand out a bit more, but unfortunately it didn't, two coats and it was still transparent. I waited for my nails to dry to see if once dried, they would look better, it took so long for my nails to dry and I was not pleased as I thought that this would just be a quick application and I could carry on with my day, I thought wrong. Once dried, there was still no improvement and no scent whatsoever, so I decided to remove the varnish and use a different brand to paint my nails. I was so disappointed as I was really looking forward to having cute, pastel, scented nails. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to put these aside and continue to use my favourite brands.


  1. I don't like Models Own polishes either, mine always get air bubble in them and I thought the scents weren't very nice

  2. It's such a shame! These two polishes are such pretty colours. Its not very good when you have to apply endless coats but I guess you never know until you try, right? Great review!
