Models Own Scented Polish: Blueberry Muffin

Hello lovelies, hope your all having a lovely weekend. So if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you would of seen that earlier this week I bought three new Models Own polishes from their two new lines, scented and neon. As you can tell from the title I am sharing my thoughts on one of the scented polishes.
Please please excuse the messy nails, for some un-know reason i have been awful at painting my nails lately which is partly why i haven't done any fancy nail art as i just don't seem to have a steady hand. Also in the swatch photo i have applied my matte top coat, it does have a glossy finish but as these are probably everywhere i thought i would show it in matte finish, and also because I'm obsessed with my matte top coat again.

 Before i go on to the scent i want to talk about the formula as i have found it different to the normal Models Own polishes as we all know i love and adore haha. I found this quite watery and runny, which leaves the finish a bit streaky so i needed three coats as it's a very pale colour. I did also find it took a little while to dry, which is a bummer as i needed so many coats so for me this certainly isn't a polish i could use in a rush to do my nails. However i do love the really subtle baby blue colour and think it's bang on for spring summer so I do still like the polish and will happily wear it when the sun comes out.

Now on to the scent, as you can see on the top of the bottle there is a little scratch and sniff sticker, so you can try them out while your in the shop. I personally picked the two colours i liked most over the scents, i think if i was going by smell i would of picked up the banana and grape polish. Now i don't eat blueberry muffins so i can't actually say if it does smell like one, but the smell isn't too bad although it does seem a little odd to me. Even with my matte and gloss top coat over the top of these i can still smell the scent, it just obviously isn't quite as strong. For me it isn't really about the scent though as i only pick it up if i actually smell my nails....now who actually smells their nails on a daily basis, hence why i chose the best colours over smell. So even if you don't like the smell but you love the colour i wouldn't feel like it rules that polish out for you. 

Models Own polishes retail at £5 each and you can pick them up from Boots, which is where i get mine as there seems to always be some kind of deal on them or you can visit their website. Have you tried any of these scented polishes yet, what's your favourite colour/scent? Hope you guys liked this post, I shall be doing more nail arty posts when my hands don't seem quite as crazy haha. Thank you all for reading, hope you have a wonderful day and i shall see you all again soon x
