This nail varnish from the new Hed Kandi collection for Models Own is undoubtedly gorgeous. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come out exactly as it looks in the bottle but with a good base coat and a few layers it looks pretty damn good. It contains various coloured sequin style glitter. There are none of the hundred and thousand style flecks that you get in some other shiny nail varnishes, and I think that’s a good thing.
In the picture I only have two coats on (and no topcoat) and I felt that those were enough. (I only have it on one finger cos I really wanted to see how it came out but cannot wear glitter to work, boo). It is just as shiny as in the bottle, and depending on your choice of base varnish you can accentuate certain colours in the glitter. It dried v e r y slowly, although it is possible that this is because I put the two coats on immediately after each other, and to get maximum glitter you do need to layer it on quite thick. I’m not a massive fan of top coats but for this I would definitely recommend one, you don’t want rough textured nails and it would seal all the shiny bits in place.
