Well, it looks like I've found a new favourite glitter topcoat! Models Own Ibiza Mix is from the new Hed Kandi collection, and despite not knowing who or what Hed Kandi is, I'm pleased as punch with this polish. Huh. Ever wondered about the etymology of "pleased as punch"? Well, turns out it's actually "as pleased as Punch", and you're welcome to click here to read more about the origins of the phrase. Although I think I might stop using it, as I've just discovered that Punch was, quote, a "wife-beating serial killer". Puts a rather different spin on the whole thing...
ANYWAYS. Ahem. This is the lovely Models Own Ibiza Mix, two coats over Models Own Dream Stream (a vibrant metallic blue):
Ibiza Mix consists of a mixture of shiny reflective pastel glitters in a variety of colours and sizes. I see smaller yellow, blue, and pink glitter, as well as larger orange, lilac, turquoise and yellow hexagonal glitter. I think this polish is unique enough to warrant owning, even if you already own one of the Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday/OPI Rainbow Connection glitters. I love the glitter in this because it's a fascinating mix of less-common pastel shades. They're still vibrant and eye-catching, but they're more interesting to me than the usual mixture of colours you see in a lot of multi-glitter lacquers.
Did I mention how crazy-shiny and reflective the glitter in this is? Check out the disco-ball reflection it created on my palm in the next picture. And it wasn't only like that in the bottle! I kept seeing little light particles dancing around my fingers when I was wearing it.
That's Models Own Ibiza Mix- officially my new favourite glitter topcoat. It's marvellously glitzy, eye-catching, and fun to look at.
What do you think of Ibiza Mix? And can anyone clue me into who/what Hed Kandi is?
