Review and Swatches : Models Own Hed Kandi Collection

I couldn't help myself! I definitely wanted three of the polishes in the Models Own/Hed Kandi collab so in the end, I just bought all five. Why not eh? I like to tell myself that I do it for you...... ;)

So without further ado, picture time - 

From Left - Right - HK01 Beach Party; HK02 Balearic Cool; HK03 Disco Heaven; HK04 Ibiza Mix; HK05 Hedonist. 

Beach Party

Beach Party - A super bright, almost neon, orange creme. Glides on beautifully in two coats.

Balearic Cool

Balearic Cool - Pretty generic bright turquoise. Strange texture though! Super transparent, three coats. I'm gonna try out some layering ideas with this one I think :)

Disco Heaven

Disco Heaven - Mainly gold glitter with bits of multicoloured glitter particles running through. One for layering, I have about three coats on here. Again, nothing too out the ordinary, but still a lovely polish! 

Ibiza Mix

Ibiza Mix - What to say about this polish! It reminds me of confetti, so pretty :) All different colours and sizes of glitter. Would look fabulous layered, but I did get tonnes of compliments whilst wearing this on its own! Predictably, my fave of the bunch, even if it is a NIGHTMARE to remove!


Hedonist - Really bright red creme, with a coral undertone. I really like this colour as you tend to see so many coral oranges out there, that's it's quite refeshing to see a coral-ly red! Two coats.

I really like this collection. I think the polishes reflect the collaboration with Hed Kandi well, but obviously, you don't need to be a fan to apprectiate the varnishes! 

As far as Models Own goes, every polish I've used from them I've liked, I think they are consistently good, and bang on trend. At £5 a pop you can't really go wrong, and as they're buy 5 save £7 or buy 3 save £3 on the Models Own website there are bargains to be had :)

Hope you enjoy!

See you next time,
