I had been lemming after the Models Own Beetlejuice collection for a really long time, their duochromes are just beyond magical. The catch though is that they're a UK brand and they're difficult to get here in the US. There are a few online retailers that sell them, but they're kind of pricey and shipping is a killer, especially for a college student. Not too long ago, someone discovered that Urban Outfitters carries 3 of the MO Beetlejuice collection! Unfortunately, the closest Urban Outfitters I'm ever around are usually about an hour away. But lo and behold, they had a free shipping sale going on with their website, where they carry the polishes! So, of course, I splurged on myself and bought all 3. And I am not disappointed.
The one I'm showing you today is Purple Blue. It's a super shimmery purple that has a blue to purple/pink shift.

I had to go outside to take these photos because I just could not get all of the color shifts in my light box, and I think I did a pretty good job of catching them, but this polish is so much more gorgeous in person.
I tried to capture the blue as much as I could, but it was very hard to get it to show up on camera. The first and last pictures seem to show it the best. The other two show the purple/pink shimmer really well.
The polish held up pretty well, this is about 2 days of wear. There were a few chips I had to touch up, but those were because I had some freak accidents with my nails.
I absolutely love this polish. It is so unique and colorful, definitely pick it up if you come across it at Urban Outfitters, so worth the $10.
ALSO, if anyone has access to Indian Ocean by Models Own, could you let me know? :)
