Model's Own: Amethyst Swatch & Review ★★★/5

Allo polish Pals,
How are you doing today? Have you had a good week so far? I have to admit I've spent the last few days in bed, luckily enough I've been taken good care of by Mr Bravo. I hope you guys are feeling in good health! I'm going to let you into a little secret that bares relevance to today's swatch. Back in my teen years I used to dress in what you'd consider gothic clothing, I had the lot. The black lipstick, spiky dog collars and even the 5ft platform boots with straps and lace all up the sides (The list goes on) While I say each to their own I am much happier with a wardrobe full of bright and colourful garments, Oh.. and shoes I don't fall over in! (That actually happened with said boots. In a store..) So... ♥ Today I have a polish I have been so keen to share with you, Amethyst from Model's Own's 'Velvet Goth' Collection.

Colour ~ Amethyst is a deep and gorgeous medium purple, delicately encrusted with an abundance of purple glitter. In the light it sometimes appears that the glitter turns into a gorgeous magenta shade which gives this purple a warmer feeling rather than cool.

Application ~ I can't lie to you guys... had some trouble. For one thing, because of the texture of Amethyst it meant that it was less easy than usual to get a nice clean coat by the cuticles. It also meant that covering the sides of my nail was a little trickier. Apart from that I was happy and with two layers of top coat she sparkled like a beauty.

Texture ~ Maybe its just me but I find the texture of the polish to apply a little troublesome. The texture of the polish is rather jammy and thick and will dry to a dull/matte finish that could be mistaken for a textured polish. I'm personally not a fan of Amethyst sans top coat which is why you are seeing the glossy version right now.

★★★/5 A little bit of a mixed review right? I absolutely love the finished result, the intense glitter is absolutely stunning to see in person but the application of Amethyst is a little tiring. I do think its totally worth it - Amethyst is an investment to any collection f you have nothing similar. And if you scared of the glitter removal it is easily a banished problem by using the foil-removal method.

What do you think of Amethyst? Have you tried any of the 'Velvet Goth' Collection?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Love
Ithi

  6. The polish looks gorgeous on you. No more gothic clothing but maybe more gothic nail polish for you? ;) Sad thing about the texture but the glitter makes it worth trying!

  7. Hey Ithi. I have the polishes from the velvet goth collection. Amethyst is the only one I've used twice and I was so disappointed to find it had gone thick and gloopy. I agree that it made neat cuticle lines hard to achieve so I felt disappointed. I love your swatches with top coat as it really brings out the depth of colour xx
