Review: Models Own Diamond Luxe Nail Varnishes

diamondluxe1

This isn’t the post I had planned for today but as I went into Tesco and found these nail varnishes at such a great price I thought the sooner it’s out the better! At the moment the Tesco near me has quite a few beauty lines reduced, I’m guessing to clear. They’re in baskets so there’s a bit of digging around to find the right colour if you want lipstick of blush but it had brands I didn’t even know they sold, like Models Own and Sleek and covered nail varnishes, blush, eyeshadows, bronzers and mascaras. I don’t know if these are end of the line products but if you have a Tesco with a decent sized beauty section it might be worth going in over the next few days if you want some bargains. They were mainly Revlon, Models Own and Collection but there were others mixed in there. You do have to check anything that’s not got one of those tear seals as quite a few of the lip products were obviously tested but it was pretty much half price from the things I looked at.

Anyway, onto the actual products I’m talking about in the post. I think that the Diamond Luxe range may be an older one from Models Own, it’s not one I particularly noticed when it was launched but in person the colours are so pretty I had to stop myself from getting a couple more. They all appear to be a cream finish but they have tiny shimmer particles in, most of them gold but the turquoise colour I bought has turquoise shimmer in, the gold isn’t obvious at all on the nails even if you can see it in the bottle. The colours that I chose are Trillion Taupe, Pear Purple and Emerald Green.

These are originally £4.99, like all Models Own nail varnishes, but I bought them for £2.50 and they were all sealed and in good condition. They didn’t have the whole range and some of the colours they had aren’t available any more but the nude taupe colour is still on their website here at £4.99 if you like the colour and can’t get to a Tesco. I think the others I have and that were in store might be the more summer colours as there was a pale blue too, which I kind of wish I’d bought now.
