Models Own Hypergel in Lilac Sheen

Models Own Hypergel in Lilac Sheen

It's been a while since I've looked through my stash of pastel nail polish shades so today I thought I'd go for something girly in the form of the Models Own Hypergel in Lilac Sheen.  Now the Hypergel range has been a bit hit or miss for me so lets see if this shade will live up to expectations.

Lilac Sheen is a gorgeous pastel purple shade with a glossy finish.  It's part of the Hypergel range which means it looks and applies like a gel polish but without the fuss and price tag of real gel nails.  I found it applied really well on the nails, it's quite on the thick side but I do often find that to be the case with pastel/lighter shades.

I found that two coats was just enough to cover the entire nail for a complete opaque finish and the polish dried fairly quickly.  As it's a "gel" I do expect the longevity of the polish to last a little longer than regular polishes but I found I could only get around 4 days of wear before any signs of chipping occurred.  Though to be fair, my nails have been through a little more action due to starting a new job so this might have impacted the chipping a little bit.

Overall, I think it's a gorgeous shade and I love the way it looks on the nails.  Is it the most perfect polish? I wouldn't say so but if the colour grabs your eye, it's definitely one you should pick up.

Where to buy: Models Own Hypergel in Lilac Sheen - Superdrug (£4.99)
