Payday treats: seventeen Colour Switch and Models Own Indian Ocean

Saturday, 25 August 2012

I accidentally (!) bought some new polishes the other day.  A friend of mine mentioned that the Barry M Chameleon collection is pretty good for stamping, and I noticed that 17 have bought out a similar range (£3.75 each) so I bought three of these; Lilac, Silver Blue and Pink.  I think the colours are lovely as they are, to be honest I'm not really interested in this making nail art on them using a clear top coat, as after I do my nail art, I then always apply top coat to get a smooth and shiny finish so I just don't get the idea of this, as surely if you say, did a dotty pattern, you'd have lumps all over the place?  Anyway, it's lost on me, but I think they are lovely colours anyway, and hopefully they will be good for stamping. 




I also bought Models Own Indian Ocean.  I don't know why I hadn't ever noticed this one before, but it's a lovely pale blue with a pink shimmer (£5).



I gave this a quick go, initially I was going to use it on it's own, but it's really too thin for that, so I put a pale blue base underneath (Beauty UK Blue Moon) and a couple of coats over the top.

These pictures do really show the SHIMMER (which is lovely) but I think they may have picked up a little bit too much of the pink tones in the polish.  This quick snap I've just taken at my desk helps you see the blue in there too.

    1. It's lovely isn't it? I can't wait to try it out over some different colours. I bet it's lovely over grey.

  2. Definitely do an update when you have tried stamping with them, then I can decide how many I need. ;)

    1. I've not stamped yet, but it is really thick,only one coat required, so I think it will be a goer. Thicker than say the Barry M foils / Denim.

  3. I tried the 17 Colour Switch in Silver and didn't have a good experience at all. You can read my review here: http://newwithhashtags.co.uk/17-colour-switch-nail-polish/
