Nails - Models Own Scented

Scented nail polishes are a complete novelty; a novelty which I gave into during a visit to Boots the other week. Models Own have recently brought out a collection of 5 Fruit Pastel shades, and I bought Apple Pie and Grape Juice. I very nearly got Strawberry Tart, but swapped it for Grape Juice at the last minute as I thought it would go lovely with Apple Pie for ombré nails!

I added a leopard print design later as I love ombré with leopard spots!

I absolutely adore these colours - especially when put together like this. As for the scent, it does smell pretty nice although maybe not as strong as the handy scratch n' sniff on the bottle lid. But who goes around sniffing their nails? Exactly. That would just be weird.


  1. Love this ombre look! i'll have to give it a go :)
    Aww thank you for your lovely comment!
    No, the package wasn't from you :( it was a sticky out card that I had to pay £1.09 just to receive! :(

  2. What a gorgeous manicure. I've been pretty interested in the scented nail polishes but I'm not sure I need to be sniffing more of this stuff!

  7. Ooh this is gorgeous, I've just made a sneaky order to models own so I might have to have a go of this myself, even though it won't turn out nearly as good :)

  8. your nails look amazing! I've never heard of scented nail polishes, whatever next :p x

  9. Hmm, I'm not sold on the idea of scented nail varnish, in the same way that I never really liked scented gel pens as a teenager, but anything that takes away the nasty chemical smell is a bonus! How did you mix the two colours on your nails without getting two blocks of colour?

  10. wow I didn't know that models own do scented nail polishes! What a great idea as I hate the smell of nail polish. Lovely design as well :)

    By the way I am having a jewellery giveaway on my blog if your interested :) Check it out here:
