Models Own Diamond Luxe - Pear Purple

I'm sure you've seen the new Models Own collection on blogs by now - the Diamond Luxe collection contains "real diamond dust" and has fancy gold lids and bottle designs. There are ten colours in the range, and they're available online and at Bottleshops now (for the normal Models Own price). I popped over to Meadowhell yesterday and bought six of them from the lovely Bottleshop there. 

Up first is Pear Purple, a pretty lilac shade. It took me a while to realise that the name doesn't relate to the fruit, but to the diamond cut! 

This is two coats of Pear Purple, with topcoat and some added rhinestones, just to go with the jewel theme. 

The formula for this is a bit different to a normal polish - it feels quite thick and almost gritty as it goes on, but it was really easy to apply and needed no clean up at all. It dried beautifully, although it wasn't the shiniest of finishes, hence the topcoat. 

The shimmer in there is so pretty! I found it really hard to capture on camera, but it's really soft and shimmery and lovely. There's a sort of gold shade in there somehow, which makes the colour so rich and warm. I really like this one a lot!  And this is the one I liked least (at first glance) of the 6 I bought, so I'm looking forward to trying the rest!

In other news, Elanor's Nails will be THREE years old in October, and I will be having a giveaway mid-month, with all sorts of prizes! Follow me now on Blogger, Bloglovin, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for more chances to win!



  1. The gold really works in the purple. I'm not much good at thick polishes though - might wait a little while. Do you know if they're LE or going to be a permanent addition like Barry M Gellies?

    1. It's not very thick, just on the thicker rather than the thinner side. Not sure about them, I suspect permanent additions as I haven't noticed anything about them being limited editions. You might like the dark red & purple ones...

  2. This is a really pretty purple and I like the rhinestone additions :-)
