As mentioned in my Chester Haul post I recently purchased Absinthe from the Models Own Velvet goth collection. I have wanted to try this ever since I saw the first swatches but was hesitant as I really don’t like the feeling of velvet and this has a velvet lid.
I popped into boots and had a feel and decided I could just about cope with it. I’m so glad I did as I love this colour. I’m not a massive fan of matte finishes so I did put a top coat on. It’s a gorgeous emerald green with loads of sparkles in that glitter in the light. It lasted ages before chipping but as with most glitters it was a bit of a pain to get off but still worth it. I think it’ll look great paired with a red for a Christmas mani. The swatches below are just 2 coats of this polish with no base colour. I’m really tempted to get the rest of the collection.
Have you tried any of the collection?
Which are your favourite colours?
