Look what they sent me! Not just one for review, but also "a couple" (their words!) to use as giveaway prizes! This polish is only available on the Dogs Trust website here, with all proceeds going straight to the charity and helping to rescue and rehome dogs throughout the UK.
Now, this polish is actually a rerelease of the Models Own shade 25 Carat Gold, which I already owned. So I decided to swatch my own bottle, and give all six bottles away as prizes! Here are my Models Own golds to compare.
Left to right are Gold Rush, Gold Digger, 25 Carat Gold, and the Dogs Trust limited edition. I love all of them!
This is 25 Carat Gold, with 4 coats. It actually only needed two or three (three was perfect for me, because I like to use thin coats) but I was so absent minded that when I sat down after the third coat to add topcoat, I picked up the wrong bottle and instead added a fourth coat! But trust me, three was perfect.
I love how shiny and bright this is. It's a very warm gold, and looks great in sunlight - not that we're having much of that at the moment!
I then decided to add something relevant to the theme, and drew some paw prints freehand using a Barry M nail art pen in black, to echo the cute paw prints on the bottle cap and on the tissue paper they came in.
I'm really pleased with these!
While I don't have my own dog at the moment (I live on my own, and work full time, so it wouldn't be fair) I do love dogs, and would definitely rehome one if I could. I've always grown up with dogs.
This is me with Billy Muffin... He was a good boy!
And this is me and Badger, who was a lovely, affectionate girl.
And this is my 'little sister' Minnie, who died in 2012 at a ripe old age. The Dogs Trust logo always makes me think of Little Min!
If you fancy getting your paws on one of these bottles of 25 Carat Gold, check out my giveaway, here! There are six bottles to go to good homes.
