Models Own -- Boogie Nights



Models Own Boogie Nights over American Apparel L'Esprit swatches & review

Today I have for you Models Own Boogie Nights over American Apparel L'Esprit.  Whenever I see the name of this polish, I always think of the Mark Wahlberg movie with the same name.  Shame on me!

Boogie Nights (the polish) looks fun but was not necessarily fun to apply.  The smell of the polish was awful.  The glitter didn't apply uniformly and I had to dig in the bottle for glitter and then try to apply it where I wanted it to be on my nails.  Even after two coats of top coat, I still had glitter sticking out past my fingertips.  Hungry glitter that definitely needed Gelous.  I didn't have any when I did this but I have since purchased some.

Boogie Nights is part of the Models Own Mirrorball collection.  This polish was one of the extras I received in a swap and was part of my first post showcasing my epic nail mail day.  Models Own classifies this as a "nail frosting" and a "glide on glitter".  I am not so sure I agree with either of those descriptions.  But, I am not part of Models Own (wouldn't that be awesome?!) and did not have the luxury to try and come up with descriptions.

I used one coat of Seche Clear base coat, two coats of the AA L'Esprit, varying coats of Boogie Nights depending on what nail needed what, two coats of INM Out The Door quick dry top coat.  In the future, when I use glitter polishes such as this, I will add Gelous before my top coat.

Boogie Nights can be purchased directly from the Models Own website and L'Esprit can be purchased directly from the American Apparel website.  I found L'Esprit much easier to apply than Coney Island (as used in my last post).

What do you think about all the different shapes, colors and sizes of glitter in Boogie Nights?  

Would you like to see bottle shots on the blog?  Do you think the pictures are too large?  Do you prefer smaller pictures on the posts and then the ability to click on an image to enlarge it?  Do the watermarks going different directions bother you? (Remember when I said I am a perfectionist with some things!)

Do you have short fingernails, too?  I enjoy seeing blogs where the blogger has fingernails like mine. That way, I know what a polish would look like more so than on really long fingernails.  Again, remember my cuticles are a work in progress :) but I did purchase a curette today so that should help.
