Ancient tropical sun

Here's a shocker for you. Did you ever think the alizarine was going to wear anything like this? No, me neither. The polish I couldn't stand for more than a couple of hours: Models Own Tropical Sun. Shot in evening sun.

Three coats. Rather sheer, as earlier reports have already shown. A pink base with a shitload of orange shimmer and silver micro glitter bits. Really pretty in theory and bottle, but damn it made me feel like I was at least 70 years old. Not that I have anything against elderly ladies, but this isn't me in any aspect at all.

Supposedly a duochrome, but it doesn't show very well. There is perhaps a slight greenish tint to to shimmer in an extreme angle, but I really couldn't see it. There was just this almost frosty glow on my nails that made me feel like a 70's secretary. Goes in the swap pile.

Swedish word of the day:
tropisk -adjective tropical


  1. agree, i couldn't believe they brought this out when pinky brown was in the same collection!!!

  2. This color would look weird on my pale skin!

  3. really love this polish.. looks fab on you!

  4. This shade is just gorgeous and I love this shimmer

  5. Happy to have found your blog and to see some swedish polish reviews! Now I'll know what to buy, when I'm there. ;) Thanks!

  6. Ohhh, I hope I like it more than you did at least - I just ordered it actually, only because I wanted Indian Ocean which was sold out as a single but still available in the set of 3! lol
