The Models Own Spring Beetlejuice collection is here! The colors are all duochromes like the previous Beetlejuice collection, but this time they're summer colors and they actually made the polishes look like the promo pictures (or perhaps the other way around):
Models Own Copper Pot, four coats. This one starts out as an orangey metallic copper with slight green highlights. Change the angle and it shifts colors entirely to a more neutral bronze with brassy gold highlights. Change the angle more and you get bright green on top of yellow gold. I don't see a whole lot of two-colors-at-once style duochrome effect, but it does change from one color to another pretty quickly.
Models Own Indian Ocean, four coats. This is a sheer baby blue base with glass fleck shimmer that shifts from purple and pink to orange and yellow. There's also some little flecks of gold throughout the polish that are visible even when only the pink side of the duochrome is visible. The yellow flash is shy on camera, but it's very obvious in real life, especially in sunlight. This is a really soft color but it doesn't lack intensity. Love it. Totally worth the four coats.
Models Own Indian Ocean, three coats. The only flaw with this color is that it is sheer. Here's how it looks with three coats. Pretty good, but still a little bit too much visible nail line.

The formula on these was workable but not perfect. The texture was nicer than the previous set of Beetlejuice colors. A little thinner, a little easier flowing, not as drippy. The colors are all pretty sheer, I did four coats of each and that seemed perfect. If you are going to do multiple coats instead of layering to achieve opacity, you must take your time, do thin coats and wait at least two minutes in between each or you'll experience bubbling and an extended dry time. I know I say that a lot, but I have a tendency to rush my coats and when I do slow down and do thinner coats I always get a better result. Dry time is pretty slow, but not extreme. Just don't forget the quick dry.
Overall, I think this trio of colors is gorgeous and perfectly summery. They're not as intense/as extreme of a duochrome finish as I normally prefer, but they're still fantastic and I don't regret buying them at all. I also like how they're not drastically different from the promo image like the last ones were. Probably why I'm happy with these instead of being disappointed like I was with the last ones. Only real problem with these is that they're sheer, but I don't mind doing an extra coat if the color is cool enough.
I ordered mine from the Models Own website, but, sadly, shipping to the States is £12.95 (about $20.60 USD) no matter how much you order.
