Right I think it’s time for a match, not the boring sports kind, but lets see how 5 Nails Inc polishes compare against 5 Models Own polishes. Let me show and review these polishes for you. Can you always assume good quality for a higher price?
From left to right Boogie Nights – Mirrorball, Northern Lights – Wonderland, Bubblegum – Ice Neon, Pukka Purple – Ice Neon and Emerald City – Glitter.

ALL £5 EACH AND THE DEAL OF BUY 5, SAVE £5!
Coat number two, really this polish needs a full colour under it to really make it pop, very rarely with a polish like this will you get a full coverage, but that’s what you want, otherwise you wouldn’t get the full effect of the polish.
Coat number two on the rest of the nails, all really good coverage and well you can’t see too well with the lighting in this picture but both the Bubblegum and Pukka Purple are meant to be matte. I have to say I wouldn’t overly describe them as a matte polish compared to other matte polishes I have from other brands, but I actually prefer Model’s Own’s level of matte and if you want it glossy, just apply your top coat.

From left to right, this is coat one of the polishes. When I first set eyes on Ladbroke I was pretty disappointed! The colour in real life was in no way neon and from the first coat on the nail I became even more disappointed! The colour was NOT neon and the polish is actually very thin and watery! Henley Regatta was also really thin but I assumed that was because it was a sheer polish and actually it did smell slightly different to the other polishes, I was convinced I could smell a hit of strawberry to the polish. Chester Street was a very subtle colour, that mum loved and I think would maybe look good as a base under some glitter polishes. Again I was disappointed with Holland Park as it no way looked neon, it was thin and when dry went matte, (yes I know that can be fixed no problem with a top coat, but that’s not the point, this polish was not advertised as matte!) Also this is basically the same polish as two other Nails Inc polishes I have – Union Street and Miami purple!
Shoreditch lane, hmm what can I say? Ok the shape of mum’s nail isn’t the best, so perhaps that put me off slightly and this is actually two coats of polish (I have somehow misplaced the one coat picture). I just don’t know, I’m not 100% convinced, maybe on my own nails and in Autumn/Winter I will like this more. I don’t think it really is that worthy of the £12 price tag.
All in all Nails Inc disappointed me, for the price overall and quality Model’s Own definitely won this battle and have swayed my in the future to buy from Model’s Own before I even think about Nails Inc! Model’s Own have a larger range of colours, they are a better price, good quality and they were delivered nearly a week before Nails Inc, even though they were ordered on the same day.
