Beetle Juice

I have been lusting over these pearlescent tones of metallic nail varnish since last winter when the Chanel Peridot made its debut and I waited and waited for a cheap dupe to come out (because I just don't believe in buying expensive nail varnish because it's on for like 1 week max and then it chips and  then you have to take it off and blehhhhh)...

...and the ones which I had tried were absolutely rubbish, they would look awesomely metallic in the bottle with a few shades running through the varnish and when you put brush it on you can only see one colour with glitter mixed in it (hence why I think that cosmetics companies should allow you to try on their nail varnish...), so I went back to my muted single toned lacquers...

That was until the Beetle Juice collection by Models Own came out and when I saw the most perfect Chanel Peridot dupe I knew I had to get it, but I couldn't find it in stores... it's only now that I have been able to get my hands 1 YEAR AFTER I DISCOVERED IT!! 

This nail varnish did not disappoint!! 

The colour comes on exactly as it is on the bottle, this beautiful molten gold-green that glides on to the nail beautifully! I was so excited when I received my parcel that I just brushed the Beetle Juice over my already-painted black nails and it completely covered the black with one coat, HOW AWESOME!? On top of that I had already had the varnish on my nails for 5 days before I took the picture of my hands and it's still perfect! I'm definitely going to try out the other colours in the Beetle Juice range, maybe I'll get them all!

  20. I’m surprised you have the restraint to not buy Chanel! I have some on my nails right now. It’s already chipped because I was working in a warehouse so YAY. The color looks nice, but I don’t think it’s for me. It’s too green. But it’s a great dupe for sure and it looks nice on your hand.

    I just followed you. Love the clean aesthetic of your blog.
