Models Own Beetlejuice was talked about with such passion from Nail Polish loving bloggers that I just had to purchase all 5 of the colours on launch. I can see why people love it so much…it’s a gorgeous looking!
Each bottle contains four pearlescent colours mixed into one gleaming shade for an optimum high finish. Inspired by the beautiful wings of a beetle, this collection mimics the complex colour-shifting with flashes of vivid tones and ethereal hues giving a shimmering duo chrome finish. I find Models Own nail polish pretty standard in that I neither find it hard or easy to apply. It has a medium thick texture – for me the thinner a polish is, the easier I find it to use but I don’t find the formula too gloopy.
The colours are really pretty and have that duochrome effect.
From left to right they are: Emerald Black, Golden Green, Pinky Brown, Aqua Violet, Purple Blue. I am sure nail bloggers can talk to you all day about these polishes, I just think they are kind of unusual and interesting to look at! Anyway Beetle Juice is one of my favourite childhood films – it’s so grotesque so I thought I’d go through the film to see if I could find what these Models own colours have been inspired by.
Emerald Black – I struggled here. There are lots of greens in the film but I don’t know they were were black-green. How about this:
Golders Green – that doorway. Would you go through?
I remember Winona from those old days, Heathers, Mermaids…she was cool back then.
Purple Blue – I struggled here…
I’m a bit disappointed actually; whilst the colours do look like a pretty beetle’s shell, I wish they reminded me more of the actual film. What about Beetle Juice’s horrible black and white suit? Winona’s red wedding dress? That horrible desert?
Meh, that’s just me nit picking.
Pretty pretty polishes:
