Model's Own Purple Gray nailpolish
A while ago I blogged about the 50% off sale that Models Own was planning once they reach 10,000 followers on their Facebook page. Well, that sale has come and gone but a haul was indeed made. I have a full video coming up soon and lots of swatches.
But I wanted to give you a little preview of one of my favorites I bought during that sale. This is Model's Own Purple Gray. The name says it all - a nice mix of aubergine and "greige" to create this lovely fall shade. Some have said that it's a good dupe for the outrageously expensive Chanel Paradoxal ($25 and up for a nailpolish? No thanks) only the Paradoxal has a purple shimmer to it whereas the Models Own is a cream finish. But the base color is virtually spot on, and Models Own did have this color first. Was Chanel looking to this company for inspiration? Who knows.
All I know is that I love this color. It's so perfect for fall and is a nice spin on the "dirty" gray and taupe colors we've seen in the last year or so. I shall be wearing this frequently this season!
Model's Own can be bought in the UK at pharmacies, and online though their own website or Asos. Beware of high international shipping fees through their website, but more on that later in my full review!
