Models Own New Beetlejuice Collection: Indian Ocean, Tropical Sun & Copper Pot Swatches

I've been looking forward to the release of Models Own new beetlejuice polishes since they announced it on their facebook page. I own the entire collection and I really like them, they are perfectly priced and although not completely original they're all great colours. They can be bought directly from Models Own for £5 each, or the collection (6 bottles) for £20 which is an absolute bargain.

I'll start off with a bottle shot :)

I was most looking forward to Indian Ocean (one on the left). It looked like such a delicate yet interesting shade. It was very sheer, with a glass fleck effect, so I think I'll be finding a nice baby blue to layer it over in future. I used 5 coats for the picture below.

And then I layered it over a few other colours (I love it over the pink and light blue)

Next I tried out Tropical Sun, which is a gorgeous tangerine shade with little bits of glitter in. I used 3 coats.
The formula is great on this one, not too sheer and dries pretty quickly. The finish was super shiny.

Last but certainly not least was Copper Pot, this is my favourite of the 3, I cant really explain why but the colour is really unique, too me, I own nothing like it.
