Banana Split & Beach Bag

I went to Meadowhall at the weekend and had my first Bottleshop experience! It wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be, it was small, confined and very hot and busy! So I can honestly say, I'd rather just go into spacious Boots and take my pick. Nevertheless, I obviously treated myself to a couple of shades whilst there.

I decided to go for Banana Split from the Fruit Pastels range because let's be honest, if you've sniffed that lid, you'll know why it went straight into my basket. It's a beautiful, pale yellow that is perfect for these Summer months. Or any month for that matter. 

Secondly, I brought Beach Bag from the Polish for Tans range. This is a gorgeous peach/coral colour and again, is another perfect Summer colour and is supposed to give you the natural tan look, although I haven't trailed that theory yet. I was so close to buying the neon green from this range but decided to play it safe for now and purchase something I know that I'll wear! 

Both these colours are stunning and I know that Models Own lasting power is always pretty good and both of them will be coming with me when I venture abroad in TWO WEEKS.

What's your favourite Models Own shade?

  1. These colours look so fun and summery! I think models own polish is amazing value for money:)


  2. I love the colours you've chosen! I really love all of the colours in the polish for tans range. I didn't even know Meadow Hall had a bottleshop - is it new? I haven't been for ages! xo

  3. I really want to try one of the scented polishes! Love Beach Bag as well, if only I tanned then this would be perfect!

  4. The banana one smells amazing! Still after a day! And yeah, I agree :) brilliant value for money!

  5. Yeah, they do! I tweeted them and they ignored me so I had a look while I was there. I think it's only been there a couple of weeks! It was good to have all the polishes in one place!

  6. The banana one smells incredible. I've had it on over 24 hours now and it still smells!

  7. Oh I'll have to have a look next time I go! Me, you and Sian need a trip to Meadow Hall - James hates coming with me and I never think to go with my other friends as they're all Nottingham way haha! xo

  8. Yes! We definitely do! Stu isn't particularly fond of coming with me either :P
