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!
