Gun Fingers

Models Own Hyper Gels ; Cornflower Blue, Pink Veneer & Turquoise Gloss

I expressed to you my love for these Hyper Gels already in my previous post, the quality is great and if you love the Barry M Gelly Shines then these Models Own equivalents are definitely for you .
First up Cornflower Blue..The name gives this a pretty accurate description of what the colour is like, this would be a great base colour for a floral design like daisies or Cath Kidston type chintz. I put a gun on mine...just because I wanted to and thought it looked quite cool, I've been doing guns on my index fingers quite alot recently - naughty I know. I used a black nail art pen to draw on the silhouette of a gun and then used a gold nail art pen just do draw a line horizontally down the gun just to highlight.
Pink Veneer , Im sooo in love with this colour, as you know I ordered another bottle with my second order. It looks sooo beautiful on its own, its the perfect springy pink. This would also be a good base for a floral and definitely a great base for a fruity nail art, the fruit trend is set to be back this season and these would match some of the cute accessories already becoming available in the shops! again I used nail art pens, I applied the white, then the yellow, let dry and then outlined using black. Its not much work and doesn't have to be tooo fiddly.
Turquoise Gloss is very similar to the Barry M Greenberry Gelly Shine, which was one of my favourites from that collection. Its again a very Spring ready shade and lovely worn on its own. Another great way to use this is for mermaid inspired nails. They're super easy to do and the result is always sooo nice. One coat of Turquoise Gloss, stippled over with patches of Cornflower Blue & a light coat of holographic glitter, then scales drawn over the top with a white nail art pen. Its that easy!!
