models own bora bora & sunset chillout

This morning these new Models Own Hed Kandi polished popped though my letter box and landed on my bed. I would say the horribly cringe expression of "landed on my desk" but that's currently still flat packed! Models Own have expanded their wildy popular summer Hed Kandi collection from last year with two new shades. Coming soon to Boots and the Models Own Bottle shop is the new shades of Bora Bora and Sunset Chillout. The Hed Kandi Models Own collection is inspired by glamour and the party capital of the world, Ibiza. The polishes are either super bright shades or premium glitters. The collection embodies Ibiza and brings nail looks from day to night. You can see some of the swatches of  other polishes in the collection including HedonistBalearic CoolIbiza Mix that I've already done, just click on the links.

Bora Bora is a fine textured glitter polish. The shimmer is very fine and gives the nail a multi tonal sand style look without the roughness of textured polishes. While I'd usually not be sold on this sort of shade but my Mum wore a colour similar while on Holiday last year and it looked incredible against her tan. I can only imagine this would look a bit like that with the added shimmer to it. I'm actually looking forward to trying this out because it's so different from anything I already own. Sunset Chillout is a beautiful multifaceted glitter bomb style polish. Packed full off purple, gold, red, green micro glitter particles, some larger dark blue ones and a few holographic silver strands popped in too. This will look absolutely stunning layered with lighter polishes. You guys know me, I love a good glitter polish! It's slightly like Ibiza mix in tones but the glitter shapes look much different on the nail.

I adore the two new shades and Bora Bora is definitely one worth trying out once you have a tan and Sunset Chillout is a pretty standard but still beautiful glitter topcoat. I reckon both are going to look absolutely stunning on. They both fit in well with the exicisitng shades on offer from the Hed Kandi Collection. As always Models Own polishes are typically two coats opaque and dry down in an average time. For £5 each they are impeccable quality and are always on trend with their collections. Big thumbs up from me for the new Models Own Hed Kandi additions!

Launches on the 6th April at the Models Own Bottle Shop, Online of the 15th April and in Boots nationwide from the 17th April

  5. I love both of these! Bora Bora is stunning and would look amazing with a tan, I also think that Sunset Chillout looks a lot like Disco Mix just a lot less purple!
