Models Own Scented 'Apple Pie' Nail Polish Review

12 comments
 
When it comes to nail polishes, Models Own are a pretty firm favourite of mine. There's always a wide range of neon to pastel shades, what with their nail art pens and then came the scented polishes. Their scented polishes are no longer pretty new but I picked up the gorgeous pastel shade 'Apple Pie' a while back when it was on offer in Boots. I also picked up a Velvet Goth and neon shade, but that's a different story together.
 
'Apple Pie' is a stunning spring pastel green shade which I so desperately wanted to love but sadly, I just couldn't.  I like to think I'm not one for a negative review, but sometimes things have to be said. I am in no way bashing Models Own as I usually love their products but this polish was a big let down to me. Every Sunday, I usually pick out a new polish for the week and get cracking. So after picking up 'Apple Pie' from my collection I thought I'd be having a stunning pastel shade that could last me through the week, with an added little scent of Apple Pie too, sounds good right? The formula itself is way too thick and gloopy for me to work with. One coat wasn't enough coverage and two coats ended up 'bubbling' the polish resulting in thick and gloopy fingernails - not the look I was going for. Out of my ten nails, only two of them looked good. I decided to give it a chance as I get so frustrated taking off nail polish and trying again, but the next morning it was still looking bad and was chipping already. Not one to waste a product, I tried over again only to be repeated with the same experience. The polish itself costs £5.00, so it's reasonably priced but hardly cheap when I think of the quality I was faced with. My last gripe with 'Apple Pie' is that is supposed to be  a scented polish - note the word 'supposed'. I know it's not advised to sniff nail polish often due to the chemicals, but I couldn't smell a single thing! Overall, please accept my apologies for such a disappointing review, but as I said this is the only Models Own polish that has let me down so far.
 
Have you tried Apple Pie? x

  1. I haven't tried any of the scented polishes, and I think I'll probably be avoiding them now! I've been thinking about getting a couple of the velvet goth ones to try though.

  2. I got a couple of the scented polishes too but I was not at all impressed with the formula. The colours were gorgeous and the scents were cute, but every single nail chipped within just a few hours of application :/

  3. I had the same problem with the whole collection! I think the strawberry one has the best scent, but still suffers from the gloopiness :(

  4. Ahh that's such a shame the formula is a bit rubbish, especially because the colour looks really beautiful!
