Models Own Hypergel Polish in Turquoise Gloss

 The Hypergel range from Models Own have been around for what seems like forever now. Available are 31 shades with around half being prefect for Spring or Summer. I'm really into mint greens, Tiffany type blues and turquoise shades come this time of year and when the time came for me to pick one up from the range Turquoise Gloss was an obvious choice and winner.

 I find the consistency to be a little thicker in comparison to Barry M's Gelly Hi-shine range but the results are quite similar, however, I find this lasted a little longer than the Barry M one's from what I can remember (not necessarily all of them just a couple that chipped within hours of application). The polish is quite thick in comparison to a regular polish so it achieve that much desired glossy, gel like finish.

 My swatch doesn't do the polish much justice due to the bad lighting but it was a gel like finish. I use 2 coats and it was fairly fast drying, but not fast enough has the first finger - with dent - like's to point out. These lasted around 3 days before I started to see some tear and wear on the tips. This particular shade is bright and beautiful, perfect for Spring and even more so for Summer. The Models Own polishes retail for £4.99 and available to purchase in selected Superdrug stores, online and on their website.


  1. This colour is so pretty ^_^
    I really need to get into wearing brighter colours on my nails, I go towards dark shades all the time.

    Funny you should mention Barry M Gel polish chipping quickly, I found that too - their normal polish lasts ages on me, but the gelly ones - within 24 hours, chipped. Glad this one give you a few days of pretty nails. :)
