Models Own have revealed its new Velvet Goth Collection which will hit the shops later this month. Despite the name, these varnishes do not have a velvet finish. Instead, they feature a matte textured, glitter duality – where the finish is matte but still manages to sparkle.
The collection contains five colours:
- Absinthe – A teal/peacock green with Green glitter
- Amethyst – ‘Cadbury’ Purple (like the chocolate bar wrapper)
- Valerian – Light Saphire Blue with Blue glitter
- Obsidian – Grey/Black with Silver glitter
- Sardonyx – Ruby Red with Red glitter
The colour palette of Models Own Velvet Goth Collection is not too dissimilar from the colours we would expect to see for an Autumn/Winter range. Although Amethyst and Valerian appear to be brighter and more vibrant than the ‘goth’ element suggests. In terms of finish, the glitter appears to lay flat and the varnish does not seem to clump as seen with Nails Inc Beaded Polish. In that regard Models Own Velvet Goth Collection appear to have succeeded in making a subtly textured, glitter varnish that is more wearable than some of its counterparts. However, is it exciting enough?
What do you think? Will you be adding these to your wishlist?
Each bottle will retail at £5. Models Own Velvet Goth Collection will be available to buy from Models Own Bottleshops on 24th August and Boots & Superdrug from 4th of September.
