Models Own Sweet Shop: Rhubarb and Custard

When I first saw the bottles for Pear Drops and Rhubarb and Custard, I wondered why Models Own were releasing two colours so similar to each other. However, when you apply them, it becomes apparent that the two colours are very different. Whereas Pear Drops is an orange-red jelly with very fine glitter, Rhubarb and Custard is a deep red with textured grains of shiny glitter in it:

Models Own Sweet Shop: Gumballs

Today is the turn of the pink polish of the Sweet Shop collection: Gumballs. Of all the five sweets represented, gumballs are the one that I never really liked. That said, the smell of this polish still makes my mouth water.

Models Own Sweet Shop: Liquorice Allsorts

Liquorice Allsorts divide opinion. Either you like them, or you don’t. If you don’t like them, then this polish is definitely not for you. However, if you do, then you will LOVE the smell of Models Own Sweet Shop Liquorice Allsorts. It’s by far the strongest of the collection, and continues to smell for many, many hours after you’ve applied it. It’s also one of the thickest, gloopiest, bestest black polishes I’ve come across in a long while.

Models Own Sweet Shop: (French) Pear Drops

Models Own Sweet Shop: (French) Pear Drops

When Models Own latest range came out at the end of July, I was right in there – I am a huge fan of the Fruit Pastel collection of scented polishes, and the idea of traditional sweet scents sounded fantastic! I picked up all 5 of the Sweet Shop collection… and then they sat in my room while I didn’t manage to find any time to paint my nails. Slowly but surely I’ve been working on a little set of designs that showcases each of their special features, and I’ll be posting one every day this week! Better late than never, right?

I’m starting off with Pear Drops:

31 Day Challenge 2014 Day 16: Geometric

We’re over halfway there! And we get a new prompt!

My design for today feels both spurious and not well executed. I nearly trashed it and started again. The trouble is, once you’ve spent ages on something you just want to post it anyway – this challenge is so fast that there isn’t too much room for perfectionism!
