Models Own Beetlejuice Collection...

Hi everyone, first of all apologies for the amount of photos that are in this post. I spent a while taking all of these photos and editing them to get the true colours out. 


  The Beetlejuice Collection first consisted of five polishes but three more were released a few months back for Spring/Summer. The mini polish was part of a mini trio and was only available in that size. 


 So here we go............





Left - Right: Pink Cocktail, Copper Pot, Tropical Sun, Indian Ocean, Pinky Brown, Purple Blue, Aqua Violet, Golden Green, Emerald Black.

Pink Cocktail

Pink Cocktail

Pink Cocktail is a bright neon pink with a purple/blue duochrome. It also has a slight silver glitter running through it. I applied three coats for this swatch but I could still see the tips of my nails so I reckon a fourth would do the job. 


Copper Pot

Copper Pot

Copper Pot is a bronze polish with a gold/green duochrome. This swatch is with three coats which is pretty opaque. I found this colour to be very similar to Propper Copper or Bronze Rage but it is the green in the duochrome that makes it different.


Tropical Sun

Tropical Sun

This swatch is with three coats although it could probably do with four. It is a sheer coral base with a gold duochrome. When looking at it in the bottle it looked like a combination of Golden Peach and Fuzzy Peach although Tropical Sun does have silver micro-glitter in it which the other two don't have.


Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean is probably the least opaque of all of the Beetlejuice polishes although it is the most gorgeous in the bottle. Don't you hate it when that happens :( It is a blue base with a pink/green duochrome and a silver/pink shimmer. The swatch was three coats and I can clearly see the whites of my nails. I like to use this over a different base colour as it adds a lovely blue/pink shimmer to my nails.


Pinky Brown

Pinky Brown

This is a polish that is impossible to photograph. It is a shimmery brown base with a pink glitter/shimmer and is almost like a jelly consistency. I say it's impossible to photograph because I could not get a photo that captured the brown/gold qualities of it. You can sort of see it in the bottom photo (on the left side of the bottle) but apart from that you're just going to have to see if you can look at this beauty in stores. Oh as before this swatch is three coats.


Purple Blue

Purple Blue

I think that this is my favourite of the Beetlejuice polishes. It is a black 'jelly' base with purple and blue micro-glitter in it. I think it is gorgeous, beautiful, stunning... there are just no words to describe it. Three coats of this beauty and PHWOAR! It's just amazing to look at especially when light hits it.


Aqua Violet

Aqua Violet

This is a blue based polish with a purple/navy duochrome. It was opaque after three coats as in the above swatch and I think that this is a basic duochrome polish but lovely nonetheless.


Golden Green

Golden Green

When pictures of this polish were first released a lot of people were saying that it looked similar to Chanel-Peridot. Now I don't have that polish so I can't compare them but I do love this colour. It is an emerald green base with gold/light green duochrome and I think it is a gorgeous colour. It's opaque in three coats aswell.


Emerald Black

Emerald Black

Apart from Indian Ocean this was probably the least impressive of the Beetlejuice collection. It's very similar to Barry M - Racing Green in that it is a black base with dark green shimmer/duochrome. It looks black all of the time unless there is some kind of bright light shining directly on to it. It was opaque in two coats although the above swatch has three and as I'm not one for very dark polishes this was not one of my favourites.


So there you go....all of the Models Own Beetlejuice polishes in one post. 

You can find Models Own in larger Boots stores, the Models Own Bottleshop at Westfield, London or online.

Hope you enjoyed and I shall hopefully have another post up soon. Feel free to let me know any requests you have for posts and I shall try my best :)

Toodles, Amy xx

Bring on the summer...

Hi everyone,


  So I've now finished my 2nd year of Uni for summer and I'm looking forward to having some chill time. Unfortunately though my work has had to let me go due to a lack of hours and blah blah blah so long story short, I'm not going to have enough money to get half the things I wanted to buy and try out over summer. Some of the things on my wish list were Revlon Lip Butters, BB Creams and a pair of white Converse :(
  I'm going to go on a job hunt though so hopefully I should be able to get something sorted so I can start spending haha! 
  Until then though I'm probably going to do a few posts about my make up collection and storage :s let me know what you think. 
  Yeah so I shall try and get another post up on Sunday :)


  Toodles xx
