Hi dear reader!
How are you doing? I'm sitting outside with my lappy on my lap but it really is too hot here. Around twelve it already was 22 degrees celcius wich is pretty darn hot for this time of the year. The best thing that goes with this crazy weather are the thunderstorms that follow! Oh boy am I looking forward to this evening! :D
Today I want to show you Mixed Up, a polish by Models Own. Mixed Up has a clear base and is packed with small black glitter and a little larger holographic glitter. Sounds pretty good eh? I thought so.

Close up. It really sparkles!
You know, the polish looks pretty awesome. I love the holographic glitter in it, too bad it doesn't show up in the pictures the way I want it to. The second picture is the way it looks to me in real life.
Application was a bitch. I'm not going to lie about that. First coat was okay, - as always with these glitter polishes - not covering anything. Second coat got sucky, the polish really starts to thicken. And as for the third coat: ooooooh my gawd. Thick, goopy and it left me with big chunky nails. It looked like my nails were 5 centimeters thick. Drying time was pretty quick though! I needed three coats of Diamont to even the glitters out.
If you're willing to put this on your nails and accept the problems I have with it I salute you, I'm going to keep this in my Helmer for now. I'm not going to spend almost 30 minutes getting my nails cleaned properly anymore! Too bad because this is a friggin awesome polish!
Dear Models Own. I like your polishes. I really do. But this one applies too shitty to be good. Pleaaaaase make me a black based holographic glitter one, pleaaaaaaaase?!
Have a nice day dear reader!
