Models Own Sardonyx review

 Before I even start my review of this varnish I have to say how in love I am with the bottle. Packaging for me is big part of whether or not I'll buy a product and this won me over instantly.

I really like this varnish, although it is part of the velvet goth collection it has that red and glitter Christmasy feel to it. 
Sardonyx is definitely a shade you need two coats with. The first coat just doesn't give it that wow factor that a second coat gives it and although they are designed to be worn matte I can't wear any varnish without a topcoat, giving it that shiny/glossy finish and making the glitter sparkle that little bit more. Without the top coat there is a small textured feel but nothing compared to many textured varnishes I have used in the past.

I'll be honest I was surprised how easy it was to remove, I often find with textured varnishes it can be a nightmare to remove them, little bits of glitter go everywhere and they stain around the nail but this was pretty good and easy to remove overall, on both false nails and my own. 

- Great consistency 
- Good brush
- Can be used without top coat
- Lovely shade
- Amazing bottle
- Great at Christmas

For me, this isn't a shade I'd wear on every nail. I wore it over Christmas on my ring finger with my false nails. I got so many compliments but it still isn't an 'every nail' shade for me.

Have you tried the Velvet Goth collection?
