The Hyper Gel line from Model’s Own is relatively new and the first thing that grabbed my attention was the selection of shades. It’s got the white that everyone’s obsessed with at the moment, for pastel lovers there’s a lilac and for the bright nail lovers there’s a really pretty green, periwinkle blue and bright coral. There are also 5 other shades available in this collection. 

I assumed from the description that these would be just like the Barry M Gelly polishes but actually I think the gel formula is more noticeable in these. The first coat goes on quite sheer but then the second coat gives a really opaque finish with super shine. The formula is also enriched with lotus flower oil which I guess nourishes the nails but also will act as a barrier to water so the polish should last longer even if you’re washing your hands daily. 
They’re £5 each and are available from Model’s Own bottle shops worldwide. I’d say my favourite is the blue, which is yours?

    I have the nude Naked Glow shade and I love it. The formula is great, not too thick and it lasts for days! I did a review of it on my blog here x

    Models Own is probably my favourite nail polish brand for value for money as well as crazy choice of colours. I definitely need to get my hands on the blue and the pastel lilac!

    Hi Lily! Love this, I actually saw these on sale on They’re $14.00 for a duo of two Model’s Own polishes. They have a lot of finishes but, I saw the Hypergels on there! They only ship to the US but this is certainly a cheaper way to get a hold of these babies in the US. They’re on sale for another day, though!

  • Erin Jaine

    I’m yet to try these, but I’d go for a white. I love all white nails, but decent nail varnishes in white are hard to find

    I like the blue as well!! Would you mind checking out my blog?
    It would mean the world to me.

  • becky sumner

    I’ll have to try these at some point! Gel nails just aren’t for me because I can’t wear nail polish to work but I love the look of gel nails so maybe this will be a good alternative.

  • Gemma N

    I’ve got the blue, and it’s a lovely spring shade I think.

  • Jemm

    the red/coral is gorgeous!!

  • Lauren Marie

    I really didn’t like these, way too thick and gloopy, the white one is great colour thou, but too much of an effort to apply.

    WTH is with posts featuring only one photo or even just two??
    How that “blog post” or “review” differentiates from regular promo releases?
    Even those are sometimes more interesting. More effort, please.

  • Victoria Milner

    I love gel formula nail polish! These colours are so pretty too.
    I have written a post on my favourite Essie polishes if anyone would like to check it out :)
