Hedonist Paisley

Why oh why can no camera ever seem to pick up the true colour of Models Own - Hedonist. I love this polish, it's a super super bright coral shade but every time I use it for blog posts the photos just come out looking orange! I've not got anything against orange but it's just not doing this amazing polish any justice. 

I think the colour issue is why I don't use it as often as I'd like to, but as summer is rolling round I thought it was about time to get it out again. I've had it a few years and it's going slightly gloopy now *sad face* but is still just as awesome as ever. I painted the base colour before I decided what nail art to do, you can probably, it's a sure-fire way to a nail fail. Always plan in advance! 

I went for paisley with a metal nibbed nail art pen, but I haven't used them for a while and my lines were so wobbly! In the end I opted for only one nail of full paisley as it was taking me forever. In hindsight I wish I'd stuck to it as the half moons are really wonky and don't add a lot to the design. 
This is most definitely not my best work, but I decided not to through it in the nail fail pile as I do like how the accent nail came out. I really should buy some better quality nail art pens, my metal nibbed ones are all from Primark and although they're not too bad, you don't get the precision that you do with high end products. 

This polish is too perfect for summer, if you don't have it already, you should!

  1. I love this. And too bad we can't see the real color. Sounds amazing.
