One Coat Wonder: Models Own Chrome Rose

9 August 2015

It's a rare occasion nowadays to stumble upon a nail polish that gives an opaque finish in just one coat. But after applying Models Own's Chrome Rose nail varnish for the first time a few weeks ago, I found exactly that (hence why I've called it a one coat wonder).

The pigmentation of this polish is great in the sense that it is very opaque, and I haven't seen a polish that quite rivals this rose gold colour before. I'd best describe this as a neutral metallic, so its perfect if you're a nude nail lover looking for something a bit more jazzy but no less classy. After application brush strokes disappear to leave a flawless metallic finish, almost giving the effect of a nail wrap - it is that smooth. The formula also drys quickly and seems to catch the light in the middle of the nail, giving off the illusion that you have longer fingernails than you actually do.

Although you can achieve a brilliant finish in just one coat I have cheated slightly with these pictures, as I move my hands about when I talk and 'Clumsy Charlotte Strikes Again' is an actual saying in my household - making me more than prone to chipping my nail varnish than most gals. However, if you want this finish to last longer than a day I'd recommend applying a top coat over this. The polish works well if you need a quick fix for a night out or meeting, but anything longer than that I have found it to chip quite easily. Also if you've had the product for a little while, I would recommend shaking it well before use as I have found the formula to separate a little.

All in all, this is a great polish for the price of £4.99, and I have received a number of compliments for its rose gold colour and sheeny quality. You know you're on to a winner when your friends compliment your fingertips - making my hand movements that much prettier...

Has anyone else tried polishes from the Models Own Chrome Collection? Would you try out this one?

  33. Looks like a great varnish! I suck at doing my nails. Usually the first coat comes out great then when I apply the second coat it pulls of the first layer in places & glugs up in others. A one coat polish seems like it would solve all my nail polish problems haha Must have a look into this.
