NOTD - Models Own Velvet Goth Absinthe

Last week I had Obsidian on my nails, this week I've switched to Absinthe.

Absinthe from the Velvet Goth collection is a beautiful emerald green polish, with lots of silver & green glitter flecks and larger hexagonal green sequin pieces.

Last time I layered the polish over a coloured base, this time Ive gone without and done two coats over a clear base coat.

This is really beautiful with the two coats, one coat gives you a sea green colour, similar to the colour of the cap, whilst two coats is much more emerald & glittery, like the colour in the bottle. I found this to be much glossier then Obsidian, but still with the matte texture.

This lasted around 3 days before I chipped it, but with a top cost it would probably last longer. Removal was surprisingly easy compared to other glitters. I think this will be on my nails over Christmas as it is very pretty and wearable.

You can pick these up from Models Own or Boots for £5, or if you're feeling lucky, why not enter my 250 Bloglovin followers give away to win 5 Models Own polishes of your choice?!

What do you think, a good colour? I'm sure the only absinthe I've ever had however was much more neon lime than emerald! Xx


  1. Hmmm...I have never tried this kind of color so I am excited to try this one out. Love the color of it and I think its perfect for any occasion.
