For some strange reason I was in such a summery mood today! In the frickin' Autumn! I'm really happy summer is over (love the winter so much!) but I know people are going to start wearing dark polish constantly. Don't get me wrong I love dark nail polish but I'll still be wearing my neon nails.
I finally got around to wearing Models Own Hedonist when I went to The Body Shop pampering treatment the last day. We were having such lovely wearing and I was debating wearing this or China Glaze Flip flop Fantasy. I settled on this just because I hadn't worn it as a manicure yet.
Hedonist is a bright coral/red creme nail polish although in certain lights it does side with orange more than red. This is part of the Hed Kandi collection that was released a while back now. Only 3 of the polishes in that collection really caught my eye but Hedonist was the one that stood out the most.
Here I have 2 coats of Hedonist. I didn't find this to be particularly neon, more a very bright polish. I like the rubbery matte finish that this polish has so I didn't bother with a topcoat. Usually adding on a topcoat just highlights the flaws in the polish anyway :P
I like the polish but I was a little let down that it wasn't as neon as China Glaze Flip flop fantasy. I remember wearing this as a pedicure a while back and it seemed to come across far brighter on the toes than the fingers. Maybe I'm imagining it :P Either way I think this is a brilliant pedicure polish :) The polish does smell a fair bit though. Maybe crack open a window before you start painting.
Models own cost around €7.57 in boots for 14ml. Boots always have a few deals on models own polish though. I bought Hedonist and Dream Stream when the buy 2 get 1 half price offer was going on. Way better value I think.
Have ye started reaching for the Darker shades yet? Don't do it! I'm serious, back away from the dark shades people!!
