Bloo Boo | NOTD

Just have a quick NOTD post for you lovely lot today. Now spring is in full swing, I just love wearing all the pretty bright polishes and it makes me so happy looking down at my nails and seeing a pretty colour there. A lot of you may guess, it’s the simplest things that bring a smile to my face!

One of my favourite nail polish brands has to be Models Own, not only are they reasonably priced at £5.00 but I find the application of them is always brilliant. This week I've covered my nails in Models Own Bloo Boo which is a gorgeous baby powder blue and is just perfect for this time of year. Please excuse the state of my nails in these pictures they are in a terrible state right now, but I think you beauties will love the colour!

As you can see when the polish has been applied to the nails it comes up a bit brighter than what it appears in the bottle, however this is not a problem for me as right now the brighter the polish the better!

As much as I love this polish there was one teeny thing which did disappoint me. On a closer inspection at the polish in the bottle you can see that there are little flecks of iridescent blue and purple shimmers. These flecks of shimmer look ever so pretty especially when you catch the polish in the light. However this really does not transfer on to the nails, which is a shame as this is what got me excited when I saw the bottle on the Models Own Shelf.

I've tried to capture it in this picture as best as I can. If you look where the light is shining you can see these small flecks of shimmer. I would have loved this look on the nails. However it's not a huge deal as I still love the polish as it is. As far as blue nail polish goes, I find Bloo Boo is a really wearable blue and it’s not too 'out there'. It does dry slightly matte, but a good top coat will always give it a bit more shine.
Overall I love this polish, it stands out, will go with a lot of outfits and I always get loads of compliments when I wear it. Do you own this polish? Let me know beauties, I would love to know your thoughts.
