I thought I'd share some of the prettiest polishes I own with you today. I have half of the Beetlejuice collection from Models Own, which are colours with a duochrome running through them. The colours are supposedly based on the colours of a beetle's back, and I find them all gorgeous. I have Emerald Black, Pinky Brown and Golden Green. I still need to get Aqua Violet and Purple Blue. They come at £5 each, 3 for £10 at ASOS or all 5 with a top coat for £20.

It's really hard to capture the pearlescence and the duochrome to these gorgeous colours, so I'll sum them up verbally :)
Emerald Black: This colour initally looks black, but when you look closer, it's a beautiful dark shimmering green. It catches the light beautifully and glistens from teal to green
Golden Green: This colour is a very yellow green that in the light glimmers a dirty gold colour. This is my least favourite, and it's very sheer so you have to build it up quite a bit before it stops looking streaky
Pinky Brown: This is my favourite. In the bottle it looks an almost subdued fuchsia but when you get closer, you see reflects of gold and a little bit of green.
They all apply well, the polish is a little thinner than I'd like, but the polish is mainly microshimmer rather than flat polish, which helps give it that duochrome finish. The polishes last 3 days on me, with minimal tip wear (I don't wear my polishes for very long anyway), and I didn't use a top coat. The microshimmer particles are much more obvious in Pinky Brown, but as I said, I like it; it gives the polish a certain depth to it. The microshimmers remind me of the ORLY Cosmix polishes.
I think these are great polishes, and I can't wait to get the last two!
