Models Own Artstix Review

I have a slight obsession with nail polish at the moment, and with so many new additions coming to the shops, I feel spoilt for choice. Only thing is, because each and every brand is trying to keep up with their competitors releases, they sometimes get it wrong. Like these. 

Now, don't get me wrong, I love Models Own. My collection is ever growing, with a huge variety of shades and topcoats, Models Own are definitely up there with my favorite brands, but with these Artstix I was left wanting more. 

The colours are amazing and it's extremely likely that I will be purchasing a full size Jade Stone as I just love it! But that to me was about the only good thing about these products. 

I whipped them out as soon as I got home to experiment with Jade Stone /Snowflakes  and on first application (even after shaking) all I got was a gloppy thick mess. I am really impatient when it comes to nail polish which is exactly why I bought these, as I thought it would be a quick and easy way to get a different look on your nails. It took a lot of work for me to paint my nails with the gloppy paint, making sure all was even with no bubbles and it then took ages to dry! 

I was disappointed to see there was no difference in the top coat on this, with the speckles of glitter barely showing up on the nail, giving a lumpy rather than classy looking effect. 

The same can be said about the Bubblegum / Blizzard duo, although these weren't as gloopy on application. 

As I said, I love the colours and I will be heading to Boots to buy a full size Jade stone! I love Models Own glitter top coats and it frustrates me that I don't like snowflake, but who wants bumpy fingernails?  

These can be bought from Boots for £6
