NOTD - Models Own "Sterling Silver"

I know, I know. I don't have shares in Models Own. I don't work for Models Own. There are other nail polishes available blah blah ;)

But here is another NOTD of MO, this time another metallic in "Sterling Silver". This is Champagne's cooler toned sister! It really is the silver alternative for me which, given my love for Champagne (in all its forms, hic) is a good thing - it gives a very similar finish to Champagne but obviously in a bright poppy silver manner.

In my opinion it is very similar to Illamasqua's "Glory". It seems to have a bit more shimmer close up but it isn't too "in your face". If I'm honest I think I prefer the finish of Sterling Silver and it seems to be lasting longer. Oh, an it's less than half the price!

I love the fine glittery shimmer it gives - I think it's a nice subtle touch of glamour and between Champagne and Sterling Silver I think you would be hard pushed to find an outfit that neither would work well with.
Another keeper :)

  1. Gorgeous polish! I'm loving anything metallic at the minute (mostly gold and silver eye shadows) so this would be the perfect little addition to my collection :)

    How on earth do you manage to do anything at all with your nails so long? they look fantastic but do they not get in the way of everything?!

  2. After years as a nailbiter the novelty hasn't worn off ;) I filed them down a little a couple of days ago in a bid to make them a little stronger.

    The main thing I notice is sometimes I don't grip things very well. My poor phone has been dropped a lot more often since I've grown them haha.
