Nails: Models Own Jade Stone

Posted on: September 9, 2013

In one of my hauls for August, I was able to acquire my first Models Own nail polish. The shade is Jade Stone, and it is a wonderfully bright mint green. I bought this off Glamourbox’s online boutique when they held a two-day sale last August 15-16. The original price is Php365, but I got it at 25% off for only Php274!

Models Own is a UK brand. Some of their polishes are not 3-free, but the company is firmly cruelty-free. Glamourbox carries 16 shades of plain and glitter polishes, and 6 colors of nail art pen.

The bottle is a very even cylinder, including the brush handle. It is perhaps the polish  that I own with the biggest handle, which actually made the application a little difficult. It contains 14ml of product. Some information is printed at the back, and the shade name is written at the bottom of the bottle. It came sealed too!

I used two coats of Jade Stone here. It’s very bright and summery, and I love how it looks on the nail. It also dries relatively fast.

I also tried out the Models Own nail art pen here. This is supposed to be a weave pattern (inspiration here). As you can see it smudged a little, as I was too excited and applied top coat too early. Both my husband and my daughter say that it looks like some sort of techy thing from afar.

Pros: lovely, lovely mint green shade; dries fast; reasonably priced; cruelty-free;

Cons: limited availability; awkwardly large brush handle

Oh, oh, I love the shade! The nail art is pretty funky too.

Thanks Eula! 😀 I do love this color as well, and I am considering getting more shades to try. I’ll redo the nail art too and be a little more patient in the execution haha!
