Models Own Fruit Pastel Nail Collection: Strawberry Tart

I may have mixed feelings when it comes to scented beauty products, but it’s a definite ‘Love’ rather than loathe when it comes to the Models Own Fruit Pastel, Scented Nail Polish Collection.

Available in 5 irresistible, juicy shades and complete with their own retro scratch and sniff sticker on the bottle, it’s easy to see why you’d want to collect them all!

Strawberries are one of my favourite fruits so it made sense to try Strawberry Tart, a barely there cheeky pink.

I loved the sickly sweet strawberry scent on the bottle and was excited to see how it would smell when the polish dried!

I did need to use two coats, but that’s not unusual with pale pink polishes as they can often end up streaky and uneven after just one coat.

While I loved the shade, I couldn’t help but think it looked slightly ‘pinker’ than it did online on the Models Own website- see their image and mine. What do you think?

There’s gives the impression that it’s a slightly duskier pink, where as mine is clearly very bubblegum pink.

That’s not to say I didn’t like it, the colours just didn’t seem to match up but hey, anyway!

Once dried the polish did give off a vague, strawberry scent, but let’s face it, the way a nail polish smells is not the primary reason for purchasing it!

Models Own Fruit Pastel Nail Polishes cost £5 each and are available from the Models Own website now.

    1. Don't you think the pack shot and the actual product look different shades though? x

  3. I much prefer the shade of pink in the stock shot! It looks so unique and like you said.. a duskier pink! The bubblegum pink, is available in every brand :( xx
