Models Own Beetlejuice Collection Swatches, Photos & Review

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice is here!

As you know, there has been much hype over the Models Own Beetlejuice collection ever since they announced it a couple months ago. I think nearly every nail blogger I am connected to on Twitter got it along with lots of you guys. But does the hype live up to my expectations? Yes and no.

Let’s talk formula. Some of these felt a tiny bit on the thick side, but I didn’t have any problems working with them aside from a couple being a bit streaky. I did use three coats for all colors just because I want maximum payoff and coverage.

Models Own Nail Polish Swatches & Review – Part II

Time for some more Models Own swatches sent to me from Helen, are you ready?

Let’s get down to business.


Slate Green

Slate Green is a medium slate green creme. This is a muted greyish slate color and it’s really beautiful. This went on extremely sheer and watery and I was kind of worried it was going to be sheer. But after three thin coats it built up nicely and is very shiny also.
