Model City Swatches and Review: Sweet Tart and Midsummer Night

Provided For Review

Happy It's-Tuesday-But-Feels-Like-Monday! :P

I've been longingly eyeballing several polishes at Model City Polish for quite some time, so I was thrilled when Nina emailed me and asked if I wanted to do a review for her. Of course, I was stoked and said yes!

Sweet Tart is a lovely white creme base filled with matte small and medium hexes, pink squares, and light purple hexes. Shown is 3 coats, no top coat (because I was so excited about the amazing formula!)

Application was amazing! I've been leery about white-based glitter-filled polishes because some of them don't go on smoothly (so I've heard), but the formula on this is fantastic! Dry time was quick in between each coat, no fishing for glitters (I turned the bottle upside down and rolled it around before I used it). As soon as I put this on, I wanted Sweet Tarts candy! :P This is definitely something I see myself using quite a bit. Nina did an excellent job with this polish! <3

Fun macro shot!

Midsummer Night is a bright cobalt blue jelly with two different sized holo glitters. Shown is 2 thin coats with 1 semi-thick coat. I did have some pulling, which happens with jelly-based polishes, but I think I didn't let my base coat dry long enough :\ This dried quickly, as well! :)

I loooove jelly polishes, and the holo glitters look awesome suspended between each layer :) After swatching this, I wanted to read William Shakespeare's A Midsummer's Night Dream <3

And another macro shot, taken with flash to show off the holo glitters! :D
