Models Own Diamond Luxe

Hello and happy weekend! Autumn is bringing some exciting new nail polish collections. Models Own announced a new collection called Diamond Luxe yesterday. Models Own Diamond Luxe collections consists of 10 new luxurious shimmer shades. I have five of the new shades to show you today.

Models Own Asscher Blue

Asscher Blue is a bright sky blue polish with shimmer finish. On the swatches I am wearing two coats with no top coat. The formula was great and the polish easy to apply.

Models Own Carat Coral

Carat Coral is a coral red polish with golden shimmer finish. On the swatches I am wearing two coats with no top coat. The formula of this polish wasn’t the easiest to work with, it was very thick but looked okay after two coats (just not the smoothest). I think this polish would look best with an extra layer of top coat.

Models Own Princess Pink

Princess Pink is a baby pink polish with shimmer finish. On the swatches I am wearing three coats with no top coat. Similarly to Carat Coral the formula was a bit thick.

Models Own Marquise Maroon

Marquise Maroon is a dark red polish with red and gold shimmer finish. On the swatches I am wearing two coats with no top coat. The formula was great to work with and the polish had a beautiful glossy finish.

Models Own Oval Plum

Oval Plum is a purple polish with shimmer finish. On the swatches I am wearing two coats of polish with no top coat. The formula was flawless and the colour just perfect!

In conclusion, the formulas were mostly good but the thicker ones are slightly harder to work with and would need a top coat. Drying time was a bit slow for all the polishes so I’d top them up with a fast drying top coat.

The diamond dust shimmer finish looks really good with each of the colour, appears very vibrant with some colours and less with others. Very pretty nevertheless.

Overall I think there are some super beautiful shades in the Diamond Luxe collection, my personal favourites are Marquise Maroon and Oval Plum. These two are just perfect for Autumn!

I hope you enjoyed my Models Own Diamond Luxe swatches, let me know which ones are your favourites! xxx

    Your favourites are my favourites as well! Marquise Maroon and Oval Plum are absolutely jumm!

    Aww, I was curious to see them swatched and I’m glad you got some ’cause I’m deeply in love with your pictures and macros.

    This kind of shimmer, which looks like kind of a tiny glassflecked one, is really hard to resist for me. I must say I liked Marquire Maroon (with my big surprise) and Oval Plum, yet even Asscher Blue seems nice.

    Maybe not so autumn-like, except for the last two, the red and plum coloured. I think I love those two the most. Great swatches btw. :-)

    These all look so pretty! I think I’ll definitely be picking up a few of these when they are released! I love that these have diamond dust in them – it makes them unique! I think Marquise Maroon and Oral Plum are my favourites! :)

    I think the colors are all very pretty, my favs are Marquise Maroon and Carat Coral. ^_^

    As for the drying time, well I always use a fast drying top coat so I wouldn’t mind that too much but still, it would have been nice if they were fast drying themselves =/
