Models Own Boogie Nights

Hello lovelies! One more day and this week is over. I would say it was a pretty good week because I had a lot of spare time. However, a big exam is coming in 2 weeks and I really have to start studying. Oh well. Today I have another Models Own Mirrorball glitter to show you. It's the purple one and a lot of people have swatched it over all sorts of purple polishes. So I decided to do something "a little" different.

I decided to layer it over yellow! I think purple and yellow look great together because they are complementary colors. So I did one coat of Models Own Boogie Nights over my China Glaze Lemon Fizz mani that I showed you here. I was so in love with this combo!

Boogie Nights has all sorts of craziness in it. There are smaller and larger purple hexes, a few purple randomly shaped shards, small and larger pink hexes and also some blue hexes in there. In other words, a fun glitter bomb. I must say that I like the fact that even though purple is the predominant color, there is still some variety which makes this polish extra special and original. There is nothing like it out there!

Application was a little problematic with this because the glitter was very hard to apply evenly and the base was too thick. I had to place the glitter deliberately in some places to make it look more even. The glitter density is decent for one coat and I think it deserves the extra effort with application because of its gorgeousness. As usual with these, it did dry sort of matte so top coat was necessary to make it shiny.

Another thing to keep in mind with this collection is that they have a very strong smell, since they contain toluene. If you are willing to get over this issue, these are totally worth every penny. I wore this combo for 3 days straight, which is really unusual for me. That's how you can tell how much I loved it. What do you think?

  1. Very pretty.Too bad the glitter was hard to apply. I have a few like that and I don't even wear them anymore.

    Amazing color combination! I love purple with yellow together, especially that lighter, paler yellow.

  4. I'm sure I'm gonna wear this again because it's gorgeous. At least the glitter comes on the brush and you don't have to fish for it. Just a little extra effort to place it evenly and that's it!
