Models Own Ice Neon - Bubblegum, Pink Punch photos, swatches

2012 was the year of Hedonist from Model's Own.  It fast became my absolute favourite nail polish of the whole twelve months and I have a lot of polishes let me tell you.  When I heard they were bringing out an Ice Neon collection, my heart skipped a beat and I waited patiently for them to arrive on Irish shores.

Promising to stay brighter and more pigmented if they're kept in the fridge, the frosted bottle are designed to withstand the cold.  I think I'll be keeping mine with the rest of my stash because I'd feel sorry for them if they were in the fridge all on their own and knowing me, I'd forget they were there along with the half opened jar of mayo that I should really throw out at this point.

But back to the beautiful polishes!  I bought two last weekend and I'll be honest, I want more.  They were €7.99 each and Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on and I'd already picked something else to be my third product, otherwise the neon yellow would have been mine.  So I've made Pink Punch (left) and Bubblegum (right) very welcome at home and am going to get so much wear out of them over the next few months!

First up is Bubblegum, a hot bubblegum pink funnily enough!  It's in your face, will be absolutely perfect for fingers and toes and I know I say this when it comes to some polishes, but you need to see this one in the flesh, along with Pink Punch.  The photos don't do them justice and don't capture just how bright they are, so trust moi and go visit them.

Pink Punch is a bright coral orange shade that made me thankful I wasn't recording a video of it while I was applying it.  The dialogue went a little something like this "Oh this is gorgeous... Magnificent... Oh My God.... Bailey look at my nails...." It's probably a good thing I live on my own now... Of the two shades, this is my favourite but don't tell Bubblegum that.  

Both of these polishes have a semi matte finish and the photos here have no top coat on them, but I'd usually put Seche Vite on for extra shine and neon-ness.

They're probably not the most office friendly polishes in the world and you will most likely blind yourself and your chums with these polishes but they are just amazing!

Lads, if you have nails, you need these.
