Models Own Review | Grace Green

NOTW – Model’s Own Grace Green

I’ve been looking for a green nail colour for my wedding day to match my dress, I don’t want to have a the traditional French/pale pink manicure as it’s really not me. This is my first time out with Model’s Own and I’ve got a few mixed feelings. I love the murky colour, it reminds me of French green clay but I don’t think it’s bright enough for my big day. I did my manicure in the afternoon with two coats and I had tell tale ‘sheet marks’ the next day which means it stayed soft after 10 hours which was disappointing. On the plus side it didn’t chip and I’ve had it on for a week. But I used my trusty Rimmel 3 in 1 as a top coat so that might have something to do with it.

Well it’s back to the drawing board for my wedding nail colour, but I’ve got colour expert The Nail Buff on the case for me. She’s already given me a few suggestions from OPI and China Glaze. If you haven’t seen her blog go have a look now, but be warned she’s kind of like Ikea. You’ll either get loads of inspiration to sort out your nails or you’ll just feel bad about how rubbish yours are as her natural talons are so lush. Love you NB!!!

What do you think guys and gals yay or nay?

    Hello Lela lubbins – Ha ha ha it does look like East Cleveland primer or Sommerville! Jade came out last year as a limited edition I think so it’s long gone. Yeah OPI does have good colour charts will do Beyotch!

    @TNB – He he Mwah!

    Thanks for stopping by ladies x

  4. I really do love this. I’ve been meaning to pick it up for so long and keep forgetting. It reminds me a lot of one of my favourites – Essie Sew Psyched.

    Hello @SMJ – It is lovely colour, I had a look at Sew Pshyched swatches on Temptalia and I think that one is a little darker than this. I was surprised that Jamie like it. It would be a good base for camo nails.

    Glad you stopped by sweetie been worried about you x

  6. It’s such a beautiful colour :)

    @Jessica – It is but not for the big day, that means I’ll have to buy some more oops!
    @Pinkty – They also have a professional range too, have you tried that one?
    @Aysh – My dress is going to be a dark green so I do need something lighter and brighter as this is too dull. I sent my mom the unze link and she likes the shoes! Will check out the champers too!

    Thanks for your comments beauty mavens! xoxo
