Gel effect nail polishes are all the rage these days and I’ve well and truly jumped on that bandwagon because in my eyes, when it comes to nail polish, the shinier the better! As you can see from the photo above, Models Own HyperGel gives a beautiful, super glossy finish, it’s impressive!
I have it in the shade Cerise Shine, which is actually a colour from the original collection which launched last year. I can’t comment on the other shades in the HyperGel collection because I have found Models Own formulas to be quite hit and miss depending on which shade you go for, but Cerise Shine is smooth and opaque making it a dream to apply. It’s non-streaky and you only need one or two coats. I don’t know why but it never feels right to apply just one coat so I went for two to get the full coverage!
It was touch-dry in a about 2 minutes and I could apply the second coat after 5 minutes. It was chip resistant for 4-5 days but the shine did fade a bit. I didn’t apply a top coat because it didn’t look like I needed to but I would recommend using a glossy top coat to seal the polish and make the shine last longer. I really love the Essie top coats
for a high shine, they dry so quickly too.
Models Own HyperGel launched last year, and they have added 10 new shades as part of the Spring collection. I quite like the look of Tropical Green and Caribbean Crush – they will look AMAZING in the Summer time! No UV is required and you can achieve that gel effect nails in ten minutes in the comfort of your own home! You can find HyperGel at Boots and ASOS
, and retails at £4.99 per bottle and comes in a total of 31 shades!
