Now that Christmas is out the way, the next big thing is the New Year! I'm sure many of you will be hitting the town on New Years Eve and partying the night away! So, how about matching your nails to your cocktail with this gorgeous trio of nail polishes? This limited edition Midori Collection* has been created through a partnership with Midori and Models Own.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Midori, it's a licquer made with premium Japanese melons for their juiciness and fresh, vibrant taste! It can be enjoyed in a variety of cocktails, long drinks and shots. You can check out some recipies to create your perfect cocktail here. The name "Midori" literally means "green" in Japanese, and is represented through the shades in this collection.
The three Midori inspired shades are a great way to add a splash of colour to your night out, and are also Melon scented to make your manicure smell as good as your cocktail tastes! Some of the scented polishes I've tried previously smell very strange and nothing at all like they claim to, however you do get a true melon-y scent from these polishes!
From left to right (photo's above) - "Golden Green" is a duo chrome effect polish which is very similar to the "Beetlejuice" collection from Models Own. It is of course a metalised green shade, with golden undertones, which makes it appear differently under different lighting. I think this is going to be the shade I'll wear most out of the 3. Next up is "Dancing Queen" which is a multi-coloured glitter top coat, what I love about this polish is that the glitter pieces are all different sizes, giving a really great effect on the nails. I've layered this on top of the other polishes in this set to show you the effect, and also I've shown you a swatch with 3 layers of this polish alone. Finally, the most vibrant in the set is "My Midori" which is a gorgeously bright and snazzy neon green shade. Ideal for party's to get your manicure noticed!
Overall this is a really great little set, and perfect for the party season, or even just to brighten up those dull winter days. The trio is available to buy at http://www.modelsownit.com/midori.html for £15.
