Models Own Purple Blue

Every now and then I come across a polish that just blows my socks off. This is definitely one of those polishes.

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.

Models Own Purple Blue, Urban Outfitters $10
This color is just amazing, I can't stop staring at my nails. The formula was a little thick, as you can see in the last photo where it got chunky around the sides. Maybe a little polish thinner would help, but I think just being more careful will help the problem.

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? :)

Happy reading!
