Model's Own Hedonist - The brightest, most summery neon polish ever!

I'm finding it hard to type this post ladies.  I'm in the process of being blinded by one of the brightest nail polishes I've ever owned!  Seriously, cyclists should wear it alongside their Hi-Vis jackets and make them visible a mile away.  Ladies and any gentlemen that might happen to be reading this post because they searched for "Hedonist", I would like to introduce you to Hedonist from the Model's Own Hedkandi collection.

Now, let me say that I took eleventy million photos of this polish and the photos don't do it justice.  It is the brightest, most neon colour I've ever had the pleasure to put on my fingers.  The photos show it as an orangey colour but in person it's a mad corally orange colour.  You need to see it.  And if you know me, come visit me so you can look it at on my nails.  You should be able to find me ok as I'm sure my office at work will be glowing from it.

Now, let me just tell you that the brush sucks.  It doesn't sit flat on the nail and because the formulation of the polish is quite thick, it makes it hard to get the edges and at the cuticles.  Because I apply polish so regularly, I'm pretty good at staying inside the lines so to speak, even doing my left hand, but this is what I had to clean up on the left hand today...  If I hadn't done that, there would have been gaps all over the edges of the nails, so Model's Own, sort it out because I love this polish.

As you can see from the photos above, it dries to a semi-matte finish.  I needed to have a shower and couldn't wait for them to finish drying, so out came the trusted Seche Vite and I love it Hedonist even more with a full shine finish....  Seriously, look at it.   Put your sunglasses on first, then look at it.

This is one of those "dangerous polishes" and what I mean by that is that when I'm driving, I find myself holding the steering wheel in a way I can see my nails, it's just fantastic.  I got mine in Boots for £5 and they sell for €7.50 here (Boots, what kind of mark up is that??)  I can't give you info on how long it lasts and to be honest, I'll rarely be able to do that with a polish because I change them so often.  I just couldn't wait to show you all this and urge you to get it.

Now I shall make a bold statement in a deep voice and with a big sweeping arm motion.  This is now the Top Polish For Summer Against Which All Other Polishes Shall Be Compared.  It's fun, bright, girlie, bright and bright.  I now have my eyes on Beach Party from the Hed Kandi collection as well.  Will it be better than Hedonist?

Do you like neon polishes?  What's the brightest colour your own?


  1. That's a great colour!! :D It would look bad on me :'(. But you totally rock it!

  2. Bahaha your comment about the steering wheel made me giggle, I do that too! Seriously hot colour, I love anything neon x

  3. It's SO GORGEOUS!!

    The Seche Vite is gorgeous on top (what's the deal with semi matte finishes anyway?!)

    I've a couple of neons (natch) I think China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy is my fave - a 'Have the eye out of your head' neon coral/pink though I rayley want Orly's new neons too. I have a problem.

  6. It's a shame the colour didn't come out the photos because it is insane to look at, your hands were literally glowing the other day!!!
