Hi everyone! The Dare to Bare collection from Models Own has been making waves in the blogosphere these past few weeks. A complete make-up collection celebrating all thing neutral, Dare to Bare contains lipsticks, eyeshadows, pressed powder and yes, new Hypergel shades.
I was lucky enough to be sent all five of the Dare to Bare Hypergels to swatch for you guys. You'll see just how hit and miss nude polishes can be if paired with the wrong skin tone. For full disclosure, I have very fair, cool-toned skin so if you have similar skin tone, then know that the polishes that look good on me will probably look good for you.
The following swatches are two coats each (except for Deep Tan, which is three) and no top coat, just look at that gloss!
Let's start with the shades that suit my skin-tone (at least I think so)
Now for the shades that don't work for my skin-tone...
I hope you like the swatches. Even though some shades don't work with my own skin tone, they might do with yours so I hope this post helps you out a bit. As polishes, these ones are pretty darn good, as Hypergel polishes from Models Own often are. All but Deep Tan only needed two coats for full opacity. Deep Tan was a bit of a funny polish to apply but I might have been too liberal with cuticle oil and not liberal enough with nail polish remover.
You can grab the new Dare to Bare Hypergel polishes from Models Own here as well as in their bottleshops and are £4.99. Which shade is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to like, subscribe and comment on social media (FLAILSANDNAILS errywhere) Until next time :)
