Wooohoo! Who is ready for a bit of a swatchathon on this fine Tuesday morning..? Exciting news - Models Own have launched yet more fabulous polishes and this time they are adding some lovely autumnal shades to the HyperGel Collection.
These are mega shine polishes that are highly pigmented, long-lasting and chip resistant, and dry to give a shine just like a gel salon manicure.
There are five new shades being added to the collection, Brunette Red, Ebony Green, Inky Blue, Pitch Purple and Raven Red. To save repeating myself throughout this post, all of these swatches are two coats, and no top coat (yep - really does dry this shiny!). To be fair, most of these polishes are one-coaters, but I generally can't bring myself to only put one coat of polish on, it doesn't feel finished to me without a second coat.
Starting off with Brunette Red, this is a lovely deep red colour - a more sophisticated shade than a standard bright red.
With Christmas fast approaching, this is definitely a seasonal must-have.
Next we have Ebony Green. This is a dark green shade, that surprisingly works beautifully.
I'm not always a fan of green as it's slightly more unconventional and can sometimes look a bit weird to non-polish lovers, but this is a lovely dark colour that again manages to look quite sophisticated.
Next we have Inky Blue. This is a really lovely dark blue shade. Look at the shine - ridiculous - you can actually see my camera/tripod reflecting in some of the pictures!
Again, a lovely colour. Nice, subtle and muted for autumn,
Here is Pitch Purple.
Again, you can see the reflection of me taking these pictures in the second photo along - which I've only just noticed now as I'm typing this up - definitely very shiny!
Finally we have Raven Red. I'm not sure the name is that fitting, as this is a very deep brown shade.
Another perfect autumn shade - particularly for those who normally stick to black - this is as close to black as it can be whilst being a lovely brown shade.
So - what do you think? As a collection this really does hit the nail on the head with capturing the shades for the season in my opinion. And as always, these apply really nicely, and as I've said a few times already, the shine is soooo gooooood! I'm definitely going to get a lot of wear out of these pretties over the next few months.
Fancy getting your hands on the new shades?
