Review and Swatches: Models Own Colour Chrome Cerise and Silver

Today I’m going to talk about two nail polishes that won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. I’m talking about Models Own Chrome Cerise and Chrome Silver nail polishes from Colour Chrome collection. They have a special finish that most of people don’t like, but I adore. Why? Because they stamp really well. These polishes are supposed to be worn without base/top coat. 


Models Own ColourChrome collection contains 10 nail polish shades, 7 of them are available in Slovenian online store Click2Chic. Round bottles are in the colour of each shade and they have that smooth mirror effect. One polish contains 11 ml and on Click2Chic it costs 5,95 €

Colour Chrome collection has wide, flat brush that is easy to work with. The formula of both polishes is also nice, not too thick, but still, carefulness by application is needed. Because these polishes have a chrome finish, brush strokes can be visible, but that all depends from the thickness of coats and other factors. You know when I had biggest problems with application? When I was swatching them for this post. It was my mistake, because I didn’t wait long enough for a base coat to dry. Yes, always when I’m swatching I use a base coat, it kind of become a habit for me. When you use polishes with that kind of finish I suggest you to wait at least fifteen to twenty minutes for base coat to be completely dry (if you’ll use a base coat as I did), otherwise nail polish won’t apply evenly (I applied it three minutes after the application of base coat and came across this problem). Of course, chrome nail polishes can be worn without base coat and Models Own suggests you to do so. In that case I recommend you to clean the surface of your nails very well, because this finish can emphasize every imperfection. If you have any ridges on your nails, those will be visible, too. And don’t worry, these polishes won’t stain your nails. The usage of top coat is also not necessary, because chrome effect already looks amazing on its own. When polishes dry brush strokes are not that visible anymore, but I did notice that without a top coat they chip very fast, like in a day.


Chrome Cerise is a fuchsia pink shade and it’s one of my favourite polishes to wear lately. I used two coats for this swatch. The drying time is really short, even if you apply thicker coats. 


Chrome Silver is, as the name suggest, the silver chrome nail polish. I also used two coats for this one. Both polishes could cover the nail surface in one coat because they have great pigmentation, but because of brush strokes and more even application two are better.  


As I already mentioned before, these are great for stamping. I used Essence Black is Back as a base and Born Pretty Store BP29 stamping plate together with both Models Own polishes. 


I would suggest polishes from Colour Chrome collection to all who like this finish and to everyone who searches for a good stamping nail polish. At the moment I'm having shades Chrome Blue and Chrome Rose on my wish list and for shade Chrome Gold I'm still not sure if it's unique enough to end up in my collection.

How do you like polishes from Colour Chrome collection? Thank you for reading!

Ocena v slovenščini.
Danes vam na blogu predstavljam dva laka, ki pa žal ne bosta povšeči vsem. Govorim o Models Own lakih Chrome Cerise in Chrome Silver iz najnovejše kolekcije Colour Chrome. Zanju je značilen poseben chrome finiš, ki vsem ne bo všeč, jaz pa ga obožujem. Poleg tega, da, vsaj meni, lepo izgleda na nohtih, so laki s tem finišem popolni za štempljanje.
Colour Chrome kolekcija vsebuje 10 odtenkov, pri nas pa jih lahko v spletni trgovini Click2Chic dobite 7. Njihova značilnost je, da so v svetleči okrogli steklenički v barvi posameznega odtenka, posamezna steklenička pa vsebuje 11 ml laka. Pri nas je cena enega laka 5,95 €.
Čopič v tej kolekciji je širok in ploščat ter omogoča lahek nanos. Laka nimata pregoste ali preredke formule, vendar pa potrebna določena pazljivost je pri nanosu, saj so po navadi pri lakih s chrome izgledom na nohtih vidne sledi čopiča. Seveda je to odvisno tudi od nanosa, debeline posameznega sloja ipd. Dejansko nikoli nisem imela problemov z nanosom obeh lakov, razen takrat, ko sem ju swatchala za ta post. Kot da bi se bogovi lepotnega sveta zarotili proti meni, lol. Models Own priporoča, da na nohte nanesete 2 ali 3 sloje posameznega laka iz kolekcije Colour Chrome brez podlaka ali nadlaka. Sama sem sicer navajena na obvezno uporabo podlaka pod katerimkoli lakom, tako da sem ga uporabljala tudi tule. Če ga boste uporabljale tudi ve, priporočam, da počakate, da se podlak zelo dobro posuši. Sama sem nanesla lak na nohte tri minute po nanosu podlaka, posledica česar so bile težave z neenakomernim nanosom, ker podlak ni bil dovolj dobro posušen. Če ne boste uporabljale podlaka, priporočam, da nohtno površino pred nanosom dobro očistite z acetonom, ki bo odstranil vso umazanijo in maščobo z nohta. Zavedati pa se morate, da laki  s chrome finišem poudarjajo vsako nepravilnost na nohtu, tako da če njegova površina ni ravna oz. imate kaj na nohtu, bo to zelo vidno. Ti laki pa seveda ne obarvajo vaših nohtov. Tudi uporaba nadlaka ni obvezna, ker chrome finiš izgleda sijoče in krasno že sam po sebi, vendar pa nadlak skrije nepravilnosti in tudi podaljša obstojnost laka. Pri meni sta oba odtenka, če sem ju nosila brez nadlaka nadlaka, okrušila v roku enega dne.  
Chrome Cerise je roza odtenek s chrome finišem, meni pa je posebej pri srcu, ker ne gre za tipičen Barbi pink odtenek, ampak ima malce rdečega podtona v sebi. Nanesla sem ga v dveh tankih slojih. Lak je sicer prekriven že po enem debelejšem sloju, vendar pa zaradi bolj enakomernega nanosa in manj vidnih sledi čopiča priporočam dva tanka. Chrome Silver pa je, kot že ime pove, srebrn chrome odtenek. Tudi za tega sem uporabila dva tanka sloja. Oba laka se zelo hitro posušita, ne glede na to, ali uporabim tanjše ali debelejše sloje. Ker sta super pigmentirana, sta odlična za štempljanje. Za vas sem pripravila tudi manikiro, s katero se lahko prepričate o mojih besedah. Kot podlago za njo sem uporabila črn Essence lak Black in Back, motivi pa so z Born Pretty Store BP26 plošče.
Lake iz Colour Chrome kolekcije priporočam vsem, ki vam je ta izgled všeč in vsem, ki iščete dobre lake za štempljanje. Mene trenutno mikata še Chrome Blue in Chrome Rose odtenka, za Chrome Gold pa še nisem prepričana, če bo pristal v košarici ali ne.
Kako sta vam všeč ta dva Models Own odtenka? Hvala za pozornost!
*I got these products for review purposes./Ta dva laka sem prejela v oceno.

  3. Pri prvi sliki sem razmišljala, da morem vprašat, kako so kaj za štemplanje, potem pa vidim, da mi ni treba =P Super sta - za štemplanje. Kot samostojna laka mi pa nista kaj preveč všeč - brush strokes in to... ;)
