Models Own Utopia and Purple Smash Up

It’s Pink Wednesday and after a few weeks since my last PW post I’m back with a brand new polish to show you!
I don’t have very many light colours in my stash at all, and even fewer are pastel shades. I decided to pick up this colour from Models Own since the summer is coming and I want to wear some brighter, more jolly colours on my nails! I wasn’t sure if I would like it but I really do and I’ve worn it quite a few times since I bought it.
The formula isn’t great on this polish which I can only describe as pasty. There was a lot of dragging and splotchiness but it’s such a pretty colour that I can put up with its pitfalls.

While I was in Boots I noticed a lone bottle of Purple Smash Up on the shelf so of course I grabbed it straight away. I was really surprised to see it as I didn’t know the colour ones were released yet, let alone that you could buy them in store – I thought you’d only be able to get them online – so I think I was just in the right time at the right place but I’m still puzzled as to why it was there because this was at least a week ago and as far as I’m aware, they only launched online five days ago.
I think the Models Own Smash Up polishes are the first decent crackles that are readily available here in the UK, especially now that there are quite a few colours to choose from with more on the way. The Barry M Nail Effects just don’t do it for me because the colours are so boring and basic.

If you enlarge the picture, you’ll see that this polish is metallic. There are tiny pieces of blue, purple and even pink glitter.
