NOTD - Models Own Red Sea with Chevron Tips

Hello there lovely readers!

Yesterday saw me visiting the capital for a way overdue catch up with my lovely blogger friends Saf & Ayshe. The day consisted of much eating, tea drinking & macaroon sampling in one of my most favourite places in the world Laduree, before more eating was done in a gorgeous Moroccan Aladdin cave of a restaurant hidden away in Covent Garden & lots of talking! A spot of cheeky shopping may have been done also ;) Then in the evening I met up with the fab Rhamnousia who has been a twitter buddy of mine for yonks & fellow Henry Cavill obsessive, so to finally meet up with the lady herself was brill & filled with much nattering & giggles. So all in all...a pretty ace day :)

Today's mani I have to share with you lovelies features the purdy Red Sea, which is part of Models Own Splash collection that was released around summer time last year & consists of a selection of pretty jewel like flakie polishes. Now I do love me a good flakie, I do :)

When these were released I decided to have a look at a few swatches first on other blogs & noticed that all five shades did seem to actually be rather similar to each other with the exception of Red Sea which is far more pigmented so I ended up only purchasing this & one other from this collection.

Red Sea is a gorgeous deep red jelly with shards/flakes of glitter that flash in tones of purple & red. Where the other four polishes in the collection seem to have very sheer tinted bases, Red Sea has a much stronger depth of colour that allows to it to even be used alone. 
However these types of polishes often truly come to life when applied over black to I decided to do some quick chevron tips before applying a couple of coats of Red Sea, just to get a feel of both!

Black polish really does make flakie polishes party! The flashes of purple & red really come out to sparkle prettily over the black tips. Application wasn't bad however due to the size of the flakie shards, I did experience a bit of curling up on the nail so you will definitely need to apply a good few thick coats of topcoat. Despite that though I do love the juicy jewel like effect!

Thanks for stopping by dolls! Have you tried any of the Models Own Splash collection? Till next time!

Lotsa love to ya!
