I feel almost guilty showing you guys this polish today because tomorrow is Halloween and the current nails that I’m sporting are in full horror-glory. But that post will be a future post! And I feel bad showing you guys this polish because this was a huge lemming for me! I think you can find this on certain nail e-tailers, but I was never lucky enough to get my hands on it … until an angel named Judi, MiddleAgedBeautyQueen, sent this to me!
Models Own “Indian Ocean” is a sheer baby blue duochrome that shimmers from baby blue to pink and gold! I’ve wanted this polish ever since I saw swatches on Scrangie’s blog! Last August, Judi and I had a little impromptu mini swap and she included this in the package! And I immediately put it on.
These swatches are a little old, as my nails aren’t as long as they once were, but I figured that doesn’t take away from the amazing beauty of this polish! Just look at that pink flash! This polish reminds me of a fun baby shower where you don’t know the sex of the baby! The blue and pink means you’ve got both bases covered.
The formula on this polish was really nice but very sheer. I wore this polish 3 different times but only took photos of this manicure. I wore it on its own, which took 4-5 coats to be opaque. I wore it over a navy, which gave a cool pink duochrome in 1 coat (but didn’t show the blue very well). Then I tried it over white and found that the true color of the polish really sung over white! This is 2 coats over 2 coats of OPI “My Boyfriend Scales Walls.” And it shows the strong color shift! This polish dries quickly and applies really nicely as well! I absolutely love this polish and think this will be a spring and summer staple!
What do you guys think? What are your favorite duochromes?
