Models Own: Purple Blue

Swatches & Review
Models Own Purple Blue is part of their 2011 Beetle Juice collection, which was released Fall of 2011. I believe there was six shades released in this collection, but I only own three.
Purple Blue has a glass-fleck duo-chrome finish. Since I have tried previous duo-chromes, they were not exactly my favorite finish. From previous experiences, duo-chromes do not show up as nice on the nail as it looks in the bottle & it comes out super streaky, BUT not Models Own! This nail polish is amazing! It looks like it has a dark brown base, but the nail polish itself is purple and blue. At some angles, this nail polish looks somewhat burgundy, which is a nice surprise and it is not streaky at all!
The end result of this was definitely not what I expected. I first tried it a few weeks ago and I can not believe it took me so long to try it since I had it for a few months.


This only required two coats, which is really nice. I originally thought it would be super sheer since the first coat was kind of sheer, but it was opaque by the second coat! It did not take too long to dry either. Since I liked this one so much, I purchased another one for my upcoming giveaway!. I am almost hitting one year on my blog and I have been planning a giveaway for a while, but I am almost done gathering some items for the giveaway so look out for that! :)
