#OrangeOctober Tropical Sun

#OrangeOctober Day 26

The end of our little orange journey is in sight! thank heavens! I am starting to crave dark vampy purples, rich blues, and Bordeaux reds.

But were not there yet! Today's polish is one I have been wanting to try for so long; this is Models Own Tropical Sun from the Spring/Summer Beetlejuice collection. A collection dedicated solely to duo chrome gorgeousness. Thanks to the recent Models Own 50% off sale I finally gave in and ordered it. I mean who can resist a sale right?

Here's the swatches (sorry they are all taken using the flash, its getting cold and dark here in the UK - snow is on its way)!


This is four coats, the application wasn't good, but not the worst. The formula could do with being a little thicker, but as you apply more coats the colour builds up nicely.

The duochrome-ness isn't in your face in this polish. Its a subtle change from a golden orange to softer orange leaning on the coral side.


In case the duo chrome wasn't enough for you, this beautiful polish also has stunning silver micro glitter particles that almost appear holographic when they catch the light. This isn't just apparent in the bottle, it translates to the nail too! (oh how I wish I could say this for more polishes) - this polish is the perfect summer manicure colour!



  1. Purchased the same shade in their sale, got to love a bargain! Didn't realise it had glitter in it until it arrived, such a gorgeous colour xx

    1. Its a nice surprise right?! I'm happy you like it.
      Love this polish, I never say this... but I can't wait for summer so I can wear it!
