NOTD - Models Own Lilac Fantasy

Big apologies for being a bit AWOL at the minute. Work has got very hectic (which I can't really complain about) but it's meant less time for posting but thanks for sticking with me so far and I'll try to drop in with posts here and there as I can.

Today's post is on Models Own "Lilac Fantasy". I had bought this polish quite some time ago but it struck me the other day that I don't think I'd ever used it.

It has everything I expect of a Models Own. Well priced? Check. Applies smoothly? Check. Dries quickly? Check. But I'm just not sure it's for me.

The photo with the bottle shows how sheer it is under a flash (with 3 coats!) though I think the other photo shows it has got a beautiful almost slight metallic pearly sheen .

My only issue is the number of coats it requires to build up a more opaque colour as it is SO SHEER. It is pretty though. Personally I'm not a fan of being able to see the whites of my nails under a polish (unless it's a good old clear one) so for me I'm not sure of this polish on its own. I think it would be gorgeous on shorter nails or as a top coat over a more opaque polish.

Whaddya think?
