Models Own Sticky Fingers Nail Polish in Sweet Candy – Review

DSC_0001

Recently as you’ll have seen on my haul of Models Own products, you’ll have seen this nail polish in there. The Stick Fingers collection by Models Own is a new addition to their ever growing nail polish collections and is one I’m glad to have bought from.

I decided I was going to go for the 6 for £20 offer as soon as Models Own announced that their Speckled Eggs collection would be a part of the offer and as there are 5 polishes in said collection, I just had one more product to pick up. I didn’t really want any lip products and as regular readers of my blog will know, I don’t wear any other make up other than lip and nail products. So I left off ordering for a while so that I could have time to think what other product I could pick up.

After seeing Brit Nails review and swatches of the Sticky Fingers collection, I knew what I wanted to add as my sixth item! I also knew which one of the seven polishes in the collection I wanted, Sweet Candy.

As I just mentioned there are seven different nail polishes in this collection, Pastel Petals (which comes in Green Gladiola and Lilac Dream), POW Nails (which comes in Red Alert and Black Magic), Bows (Pastel Pink), Blobs & Drops (Snow White) and finally the one I have which is Sweet Candy (Nude Beige).

As I mentioned before Sweet Candy comes with a Nude Beige nail polish, as well as with some stickers that you apply to the nail. Each polish in the Sticky Fingers collection comes with these and due to the theme of sweets and candy, mine came with stickers related to these, such as ice cream, sweets, candy, candy floss, doughnuts, cake, cupcakes, cupcake sprinkles, lollipops, candy canes, as well as two cute little gingerbread men, which I doubt I will EVER use!

Now enough of the minor details! Let’s get really into depth about the nail polish itself, as well as how the stickers apply!

The nail polish is Nude Beige (sorry I know this is the third time mentioning this now!) and applies to the nail beautifully in two coats. One coat COULD be enough but as I wanted the colour to be pigmented I went with two to be on the safe side. Personally I felt that this dried with a slight gel feel, which I really did like.

Lasting power was really quite good with this nail polish and I didn’t even wear a top coat with it… Well apart from the middle finger that I applied one of the stickers onto. I got a lot of compliments on the polish itself when I went out wearing it and since then I’ve worn it quite a few times.

Even without the stickers this polish would have been gorgeous alone and I can see me wearing it like this in the future, especially for both spring and autumn!

Now onto the stickers! I would have worn a sticker for each nail but I want to make sure that the stickers last, so I decided just one on my ring finger would look gorgeous and alas, it did! The stickers apply really easily and boy, do they stay! I applied a top coat on top of the sticker mind to ensure to give it some staying power but I probably didn’t need it to be fair.

The way you’re meant to apply the stickers is to paint your nails as usual with the Nude Beige shade and when it’s dried you apply your stickers to the nail and hey presto, you’re done! Of course apply a top coat if you do so wish.

I won’t lie, a part of me did think that the sticker would fall off within a few days and begin to peel away but hell no, this baby stuck! When I sadly had to remove this nail polish for work, the polish itself came off with a few twists in my nail remover pot but no matter how much I scrubbed with cotton pads and twirled my nail around in the pot, it wouldn’t budge! In the end I had to pick off the sticker with my nails, which wasn’t so bad considering! It shows their staying power, which is pretty awesome!

Overall I LOVE the Sticky Nails collection and although this is probably the only nail polish from the collection I’ll have, I think it’s the best one of the bunch as the stickers are just so cute and due to the gingerbread men and candy canes as stickers of choice, this polish can be used at Christmas too.

Here are some pictures of my nails with Sweet Candy applied!

P.S. This is my 300th post on my blog! HORRAY!

Models Own Haul

Okay I know I’m meant to be on a spending ban, but I just couldn’t let this offer by Models Own pass me by!

At the moment Models Own have their 6 for £20 offer going on pretty much everything (well there are some things not on the offer…) and it was included on the Speckled Egg collection, which I’ve wanted since they announced it earlier this month. I calculated whether or not it would even save me money to just buy the 3 shades I wanted the most, but alas it wasn’t worth not taking up the offer and so, I went for it!

The Speckled Egg collection were all popped into my shopping basket and I had the choice of one more product to pick up, seeing as there are only 5 polishes in the Speckled Egg collection.

There are five shades altogether, Dove (pink), Goose (yellow), Magpie (green), Duck (blue) and Swan (purple).

So after seeing the polishes I also popped one of the Sticky Nails polishes into my shopping basket too. I opted for Sweet Candy as I thought it was the cutest of the bunch! The polish for this is shade Nude Beige and comes with lots of cute sweetie themed stickers! This was my favourite due to the fact you get some cute little gingerbread men on the sticker sheet, which I doubt I will ever use.

Upon ordering these I had the money to pay for them there and then but as I decided to pay with PayPal it enabled me the choice to pay for them two weeks after I ordered them. I love that PayPal does this, but I only thought they did it with eBay. So if you don’t have the cash straight away but will have it two weeks later, you can order away with no worries, which is awesome!

I ordered my polishes on the Friday after a long day at work and to my surprise they arrived on the following Wednesday morning. I wasn’t due at work until later that afternoon so I got to have a good stare at the polishes, but sadly due to my job I can’t wear polish for work… However I did paint my toes with these and they look gorgeous, so much so I can see me painting my toe nails with these for quite a long time now!

I’m really quite pleased with how long these took to arrive as it didn’t even take a week and Models Own did state in my receipt via email that it might take longer than usual for my order to arrive, due to how popular the 6 for £20 offer was turning out to be. So well done Models Own, this was my first order from them and boy am I impressed! Not only did my order arrive quickly, but it also arrived in lovely packaging and it made a nice change. I can’t see me getting rid of the box it came in! xD

As I don’t work weekends, I FINALLY got my chance to try these out, after what felt like years to finally try! I didn’t paint my nails all too great (well not photo worthy on this post anyway… Well maybe just to show them off!) as my boyfriend and I were in a hurry to drive over to Coventry after I finished work. So anyway! I painted my nails with two coats of each shade but I think I could have done with three coats, so I think next time I wear these I’ll be trying it them all as three coats.

I have found one problem with the Speckled Egg polishes and that is not all the brushes are the same… I don’t know if I’m the only one who has noticed this, but it’s certainly affected/affecting the way I apply some of the polishes. The two shades that are having this issue are Swan and Duck.

So far my favourites are seeming to be Dove, Duck and Magpie.

FYI I WILL be reviewing the Speckled Egg polishes as they’re all gorgeous when applied to the nails. So keep your eyes peeled for those. 😉

I still haven’t tried the Sticky Fingers polish I ordered, but I shall be very soon as I really can’t wait to give it a go!

Have you taken part in Models Own 6 for £20 offer? If not do you intend to and if you did, what did you buy? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time, take care all and I’ll see you again soon!
