Models Own ~ Beach Bag

Hi there!

When I was in London last month I picked up a few nail polishes from Models Own. I had seen swatches of their Polish for Tans collection on Brit Nails and fell in love with them. In contrast to the OPI or Essie summer collections, these are REALLY neon and bright. When I finally got the opportunity to shop at a Models Own Bottle Shop and saw all these colors in person, I couldn't decide which color to get. I ended up buying the bright peach shade called Beach Bag. Doesn't it just look lovely in the bottle?! But then I put it on...

Beach Bag itself was easy to work with and the color still is pretty on the nails, but it just looks strange against my skin tone. Yikes! As the name of the collection suggests, these shades are supposed to enhance the tan in your skintone. Well, on me there is no tan that can be enhanced and I am pretty pale all year round - which is ok, I have learned to embrace my porcelain skin. This neon peach shade, however, makes my skin look grey, dull and ghostly :( If you know me, you know that I normally do not care if a color suits me or not, I just wear what I like and what makes me feel good. But when I edited the photos of this manicure, I was almost shocked to see what it looks like on me. So while I really want to love this polish, it's going into the "give to friends or sell" drawer. Now I wish I had picked up another color from the collection, like the bright pink or green...

Have you tried anything from the Polish for Tans collection? Let me know how you feel about them!
