Model's Own - Indian Ocean

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!  While this is a scheduled post, I'm sure that I'm sad that I have to end my time in Vegas today :(.  I'll be heading back to the real world very soon.

Today, I have a beautiful duochrome sent to me by my awesome polish friend Saira.  Indian Ocean is one of Model's Own recent releases in their Beetlejuice collection.  It's a sheer shimmer that shifts from blue to pink.  It's best used as a layering polish because it took me four coats to get good coverage.  It's really pretty on its own though.  Here I used Essie All in One Base, 4 coats of Indian Ocean, and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

When I did my last ombre manicure, I decided to try Indian Ocean on each nail to see how it would look on both dark and light colors.

I prefer it over the lighter colors than the darker ones.

I also wanted to try it over a pink, so I layered it (1 coat) over Brucci Heidi's Glow.  I decided to leave the ring finger with just Heidi's Glow for contrast.

How gorgeous is this combo with the pink?  If you'd like to see what I did with it next, check out the guest post I did on Refined and Polished here.

I'm loving Indian Ocean overall.  It's such a pretty and unique polish!

What do you think of Indian Ocean?  Did you pick up any of the new polishes from the Beetlejuice collection?

  3. I wasn't sure about needing this polish (I usually skip sheer polishes) but after seeing it layered on a periwinkle crème I decided I must buy it! It looks great on pink, too!

  4. Indian Ocean is super gorgeous! Out of the whole collection, it's probably the only one I really like. I haven't seen anything quite like it.

  9. I just picked this up while I was in Ireland (oddly, I didn't find any MO's while in London). I can't wait to try mine out over pinks like you did!
