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!
