Models Own Purple Blue and GOOD NEWS!

I'm still here! I apologize for being absent, but I have a good reason for it. First, let's get to the nail polish. Even though I haven't been blogging, I have still been wearing polish and photographing my nails, so I have a backlog of posts that I am working on getting through. Up first is a polish sent to my by the ever-lovely Nicole at Top to Toe. Here's Purple Blue by Models Own.

Purple Blue came out with the Beetle Juice collection that made a big splash. My pictures are not the greatest, but it's a pretty duochrome that shifts between (you guessed it!) purple and blue. It was on the thin side - I used three coats - but it applied easily. I really loved looking at my nails and watching the colors shift back and forth.

Now, onto my exciting news. I've officially been accepted into graduate school! In London! Starting this fall I will be studying Art Conservation at Camberwell College of Arts. I am equal parts excited and terrified. This will be my first time out of the country, and my first time away from my family for so long. I'll be gone for two years. I am really excited to be back in school and back in an artistic environment. And I can't tell you how excited I am to (hopefully!) get out of retail.

As far as my little blog goes, I honestly have no idea what its future is. I plan to continue updating until I leave in September (though I have TONS to do, and don't know how regularly I'll post). But I only intend to bring a few nail polishes with me to London, as I'm trying to travel as lightly as possible. I'm sure I'll buy some nail polish while I am there, but hopefully not a lot as I will have to bring it all back or leave it. I will keep you all updated with my plans.

All that said, I'm sorry I was gone so long. I missed not only updating my blog, but commenting on your blogs as well. How have you all been?


  1. Congrats on your acceptance! And I looove Purple Blue. Awesome finish.

  2. Congratulations! That's a huge accomplishment. :) And Purple Blue looks really good on you -- just think of all the Models Own polishes you'll be able to feast your eyes on in London ... IN PERSON!

  3. Congratulations! Well done that's brilliant!
    I'm probably biased because I'm from London..... But London is the best place on Earth, you'll love it!
    Also, I love Purple Blue, wearing it at the moment funnily enough xoxo
