Model's Own Hed Kandi

So today's review is on the Model's Own Hed Kandi Nail Polish - we have Hedonist, Disco Heaven, Ibiza Mix, Beach Party, Balearic Cool (left to right and top to bottom).

Models Own have combined with Hed Kandi to create a collection inspired by the summer party capital Ibiza and I definitely think they've managed that.  The range is very bright and fun - perfect for a clubbing night out and at £5.00 each they're great.

Hedonist is a gorgeously bright coral that is probably for me the most wearable of the shades and a perfect colour for summer.

Disco Heaven is lovely, but I'm just not a fan of glittery polishes. K on the other hand loves them and this is right up her street.  Now you'll noticed that in the picture, the nail looks badly painted however I've included this image to highlight that you need to be careful as it blobs off the brush - nightmare.

Out of the two glitter polishes I could more see me using Ibiza Mix.  I love the different colours included and quite fancy this on my toes for summer.  Like with any glitter polish you need a couple of coats to get a good finish.

Now Beach Party is a very bright orange.  Honestly it looks a lot more OTT here and in the bottle than the end result.  I can see this working will with most peoples summer wardrobe.

Now I love Balearic Cool!  Fully admit that I was a bit apprehensive at first but once on it really does live up to it's name and gives just the most lovely sea blue colour.  This is going to be an absolute staple for me this summer and if I was off to Ibiza this year this would be my colour of choice from the set.  Possibly with an Ombre effect using Ibiza Mix on the tips.

Finally some extra pictures of Ibiza Mix used as a top coat.

Overall for £5.00 these are such a lovely bunch of fun colours for summer and I have to say that as a brand the polishes are great quality at a reasonable price.
