It was time to paint my nails again yesterday (they were naked for a whole day and it felt weird...) and for once there was no indecision about what I should paint next- Models Own Indian Ocean was simply screaming at me to use it! :)

I picked out a lilac shade as it's 'underwear'- I've seen it paired with a lot of blue bases, and I wondered how a purple would work; after all purple is basically half-way between blue and pink (the main shades in Indian Ocean) and I'm really happy with the results! The lilac shades do seem to bring out the pink shimmer more, and in some lights it also looks really golden, it's stunning and I hope the pictures below do the look justice.
As (I hope) you can see in some lights the duo chrome and shimmery effect is really obvious and bright, but in others it come across as a very subtle sheen over the nails- I love it! I'm quite excited by the golden effect it sometimes has, as I wasn't expecting it- you can't really see it in the bottle :)
Seriously, if you buy NO other nail polishes this year, get this one- it's awesome and I cannot say enough good things about it! (though one slight downside, it is a particularly stinky formula- use in a well-ventilated room!) It's amazing just how different it can look in different lights, and with different base colours!
Have you tried Indian Ocean yet? (it's included in Boots 3 for 2!) It's well worth a look :)
