Coming back from a fun holiday away is always hard, but something that cheered me up massively was the prize Boohoo.com sent me for my festival blog post. One of the prizes was this cute and quirky scented Fizzy Cola Bottles nail polish by Models Own.
Now I know what you're thinking, this probably isn't a colour that I would think to pick up if I saw it in Superdrug, but my oh my is it beautiful! The light brown creme shade looks so lovely on the nails (especially with my hands being quite tanned at the moment) and I love that the gold glitter and silver shimmer running through it gives it a subtle 'glammed-up' finish.
Although I was seriously impressed with the colour, my favourite thing about the nail polish is the fact it actually smells like fizzy cola bottles! I'm a sucker for a novelty nail polish. Even though the scented nail polish label should have given it away, I really didn't expect the scent to linger on the nails! If I remember rightly my 'scented' Blueberry Muffin polish from Models Own didn't smell of anything! It was definitely a good surprise, especially with the scent being so true to that of the penny sweets.
The fizzy cola bottles scent stuck around for about a day, which I don't think is too bad to say I did apply a top coat to my nails. Oh and a word of advice, you can scratch and sniff the top of the polish or smell it on your nails dry, but don't try and sniff the actual polish. You'll just get a headache...
The nail polish is really easy to apply, though two coats is a definite must as it'll be too sheer with just one. I also recommend using a top coat like Seche Vite as glitter polishes are always a little less smooth on the nails.
I love this polish so much that I'm definitely tempted by some of the other polishes in the Models Own scented Sweet Shop collection, which include:
- Pear Drops - a bright coral-red polish with silver and red shimmer
- Liquorice Allsorts - a plain black creme polish
- Gumballs - a bright pink creme polish
- Rhubarb and Custard - a bright red polish with silver glitter
Models Own's Fizzy Cola Bottles nail polish is available at the purse-friendly price of £4.99 from the brand's website and Superdrug where you can currently pick up two polishes for £7.99.
