Hi, everyone! I recently reviewed a new-to-me indie on the blog when Model City Polish came out with her Spring Collection. I was really impressed by the two shades and so recently when Jed offered to buy me a few polishes (this is a rare thing for me as I am a broke joke at the moment!) I decided to pick up another shade from her new Resident Evil-themed collection (S.T.A.R.S) and another one, Strawberry Jam! I also decided to try out the cuticle oil after hearing a lot of good things!
Model City Polish S.T.A.R.S is a rich blue jelly blend with gold holographic glitter in two sizes and a splash of gold holographic stars. I used two coats for the below photos with a top coat of Gelous + Out The Door. The formula was great, the perfect consistency & applied easily, no fishing required for the stars (and in fact, I had a bit of an unexpected star-splosion on my ring finger, ha!). I would recommend a thick smoothing topcoat so that the stars don’t stick out.
Model City Polish Strawberry Jam is a strawberry red jelly base with holographic red, silver, and pink glitter. I used two coats for the below photos with a top coat of Gelous + Out The Door. The formula was good, a little on the thick side but still pretty easy to work with, I may add a few drops of thinner to this for next time. The glitters also leave it a bit bumpy so I would recommend a nice thick top coat! This is so pretty & sparkly, photos just do not do it justice. I definitely need to stamp some strawberries on top of this sometime this summer!
As mentioned, I also picked up the Model City Polish Cuticle Oil in the Apple scent!
This cuticle oil comes in a bottle and contains sweet almond oil, avocado oil, vitamins A, C, D, & E, and fragrance oils. It’s easy to apply, feels very moisturizing and the scent is great!
I do hope she comes out with more scents in the future…she does have a ton available right now but a lot of them seem to be really sweet types of scents which I’m personally not a huge fan of. I’d love to see more fruity or flowery scents! But this one is fantastic, as you can see from this photo I posted on instagram of me sniffing my fingers like a creep all day after wearing it:
I don’t get to purchase polish often, so I’m so glad that these shades were as awesome as they were, totally worth it! Want some Model City Polish of your own?
