Models Own – Indian Ocean £5

I love Models Own nail polishes. They always seem to come up trumps with their new collections, and Indian Ocean from the recently released Beetlejuice collection is no exception. It is a mesmerising mix of an icy turquoise-blue base with fine reflexes of pink, green and silver running through it. The colour is ever-changing with every different light and angle, and is beautiful worn alone or layered over a stronger base.

Models Own Indian Ocean

Less like the Indian Ocean, and more like the multi-tonal mermaid tail in the Indian Ocean, capturing the beauty of this polish was an impossible challenge. One moment it is mysterious sea-green blue varnish shimmering brightly with pink glitter, the next it is an alluring aqua with a metallic silver shine. Either way – it is a gorgeous colour. The consistency is not at all gritty, and although sheer, the photos demonstrate the finish after three coats. It has an even more intense, oceanic appearance when layered over the top of turquoise or jade green nail polish.

Indian Ocean is definitely making waves in the beauty world and is a firm favourite of mine. Have you tried any of the new Beetlejuice polishes from Models Own?

    Haha! I appreciated the "making waves" pun at the end there. Very clever. Sadly, I don't think this brand is available in Australia but I'd love to try it out if I'm ever able to. There's an amazing orangey, yellow colour I've seen kicking about from this brand that looks absolutely gorgeous.

    My last NOTD was on Model's Own Beetlejuice but in purple blue, I think Indian Ocean is beautiful though! Such a pretty summery colour! x

    It's such an amazingly versatile polish.. I tried it over a minky/nude colour and it just became the most beautiful colour! I love it! :o)

    I have got the orangey coral one and the purple blue one and both are lovely too.. Indian Ocean is definitely my favourite though.

    Have fun trying it over other colours!
