I posted about the Models Own HyperGel Collection the other day when they arrived in the post, I couldn't wait to try them out so I did what any sensible person would do, skittles, meaning I got to try all 10 colours at once. Although not the best way to see how the polishes would look as a full manicure I thought it would give me a good idea of the colours and a rough idea how they applied.
The colours are (left to right, then thumbs): Pink Veneer, Cerise Shine, Coral Glaze, Red Lustre, White Light, Lilac Sheen, Cornflower Gleam, Blue Glint, Naked Glow and Turquoise Gloss.
They're all thick polishes and the photos of them are two coats, sadly I didn't feel like any of these were one coaters which is a shame, especially considering how thick the polish is. They all look pretty good in two coats though and they do dry to a glossy finish.
The paler shades (Pink Veneer, White Light and Naked Glow) were very streaky with just one coat and needed a second thick coat to even them out.
Although they probably don't need top coat - they do dry to a nice glossy finish - I still used some, I find quick dry top coat is the only thing that keeps my polish from chipping.
I'm still pretty impressed with the range of colours and although the application wasn't exactly what I had hoped (I had my fingers crossed for one coaters) they did apply pretty nicely and look good on the nails.
Without using each colour for a full manicure it's hard to properly judge them, I think, so keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for more posts on how I'm finding these polishes.
It's also hard to tell with all the different colours whether they do really look like gel polish so I'll hold off commenting on that until I've tried full manicures in one shade too.
