Models Own HyperGel Review

L-R Naked Glow, Cornflower Gleam, Coral Glaze, Red Lustre RRP £5


Whilst shopping last week, I came across the Models Own pop up shop. They're having an offer, £20 for 6 polishes. Great price right? Indeed, I picked up 6 within 5 minutes. Four of them are the new HyperGels. Supposedly a gel effect polish, I am guessing the idea was influenced by shellacs and the signature mirror shine? I am a big sucker for super shiny nails so I was excited to try these out. I currently have Cornflower Gleam on my nails.
Having had a play with them, I realised what they remind me of, the Barry M Gellys! Formula, colour, shine and lasting power all resemble the Gellys. They're smooth to apply, opaque (you can get away with one coat) and last a good 3 days with no chips. The shine did seem to disappear after day 2 though.
I kind of prefer the Barry M ones. The Barry M ones seem a little shinier, have a better brush and is a pound cheaper! They also have a better colour selection. I can't say I am disappointed with these polishes but I am certainly underwhelmed. Maybe because I already have the Gelly's and it felt like I was purchasing the same thing, just by another brand.

What do you think? Have you tried them yet?
