Model's Own: Pukka Purple Ice Neon


 Today I tried out Model's Own Pukka Purple, which is from their Ice Neon collection. Neon colours are perfect for summer, and will brighten up a rainy day, so I would definitely recommend you try them out.

 Here's Pukka Purple:

Model's Own Ice Neon: Pukka Purple


 I love this colour! I also have Bubblegum from the collection which is is amazing. So if these two are anything to go by, then I'm sure the rest of the collection is great, and I'm looking forward to trying them! 

 The formula of this polish is great, it applies easily with no streaks, and I only needed one coat. It was recommended to me to use a white base coat with neons as it helps to bring out the neon colour. However, I don't think this made as much of a different with Pukka Purple, so next time I won't be using one one.

 The lid of this polish says it has a matte finish, however I don't agree. In the picture below I've shown the polish on its own (left), with a matte top coat (middle) and a glossy top coat (right):

 I'm sure you will agree that the polish on its own is more similar to the polish with a glossy top coat than a matte one. And as I love matte nails at the moment, I decided to mattify this manicure using Rimmel's Pro Matte top coat:

Matte vs Shiny
 Do you prefer this polish matte or shiny?


- Nice formula, easy to apply.
- Vibrant colour.
- Perfect for summer!
- I wouldn't say it has a matte finish, but this is just my view.

 What are your thoughts on Pukka Purple? Will you be buying some neon polishes this summer? You can see/buy the Ice Neon collection on the Model's Own website. I'd love to see your swatches of other neons from the collection, so leave me your links in the comments :)
