NOTW: Models Own Beetlejuice Aqua Violet

Happy Weekend! This week I've been wearing the lovely Models Own Aqua Violet colour from the Beetlejuice collection, I only have one colour left to try out now!

I was a little disappointed with the formula of this colour, compared to the other 3 so far. It was a little weak and took me three coats to get the effect in the photos. It also took forever to dry which I've found is unusual for Models Own - 20 minutes later I opened a package and put a big smudge on my thumb because it still wasn't dry!

I also had real trouble capturing the colour change in photos with this one, the others were so easy! The change is quite subtle in real life compared to the others but it still is a really lovely combination. You can just about make out some of the purple colour in the next photo :S

The colour looks a little green in the photos but it is definitely more of an aqua blue and the purple is a really beautiful colour with slightly pink hues to it.

I'm sorry there's just a bunch of photos of the same colour polish - I was really hoping I would have got more of the purple in at least one of them :(

Overall I do recommend this colour as it looks lovely on and is definitely a little bit festive ;) ♥
