In my 10 Day Beauty Challenge: Day 4 post I mentioned this polish (Models Own 'Thunder and Lightening') as one of three nail polishes that I regret buying. From the title, I pictured a rich, deep black polish with silver micro glitter, but as I bought this online, I was quite disappointed with what actually came through my door.
The polish itself is actually a rich, chocolate brown colour - one I definitely wouldn't have chosen from an in-store display. I am also quite disappointed with the polish as it is so sheer. Here I show you what one, two and three coats of the polish look like. From the results I would have liked to put on another coat, but I hate putting on more than three layers of nail varnish!
At £5 I didn't find this product too disappointing for the price, but after hearing such great reviews from others about Models Own polishes I did expect more. Although the formula was so sheer, it was very smooth and didn't clump in the slightest, so I guess it's not all bad!

What do you think? Maybe I'm just being too fussy!
