Model City Polish Summer Collection

***Press Sample***

I feel like this year has been treating me well so far with regards to opportunities to work with indies I've wanted to work with since finding them.  Today, I get to check another favorite indie off my Indie Swatcher Bucket List, and that is Model City Polish!

Model City Polish is a brand I've been following since almost the beginning of my blogging adventures.  I think I've purchased at least 1 color from every collection/release she's produced in the last 2+ years.  She has some seriously amazing polish!!

So it's no surprise I squealed so hardcore that the neighbor's dogs went nuts when I got a message from the creator asking if I'd like to swatch her upcoming Summer collection :D  Hell to the yes!!  And I am happy to share it with you today!!!

For this year's summer collection, she took the "neon" craze in a more sparkly/shimmery/holographic direction so that these beauties would sparkle both indoors and outdoors.  All of them are named after some of her favorite poolside tunes - and they happen to be some of my favorite driving songs :P  Let's get right to them!

*Note: All of the swatches are shown in 2 coats with topcoat, shot in indirect evening sunlight.

First up: Boys of Summer





Boys of Summer is a bright sky blue blend with holographic pigment and ultra holo glitter.  This one is my second favorite in the collection - the blue is really much brighter in person than any camera could capture.

Next up: California Girls





California Girls is a bright bubblegum pink holographic with holo glitters throughout.  This shade is one of the few of pink that I like, and I actually think it looks alright with my skintone.

Next: Cruel Summer





Cruel Summer is a nice bright nude orange holographic with holographic glitters.  This polish was such a unique blending, it's one of the better oranges I've seen on the market!

Next: Sunglasses at Night





Sunglasses at Night is a nice black holo with ultra holographic glitters throughout.  It's so tough to find a black holographic that stands out from the many others, but I feel she absolutely made one with this polish!  It's my favorite of the collection :)

Next: Surfer Girl





Surfer Girl is a beautiful bright purple holo with ultra holo glitter throughout.  This one is definitely a must for all the purple polish lovers out there :D

And lastly we have: Working for the Weekend





Working for the Weekend is a fantastic bright money green holo with ultra holo glitter throughout - my third favorite in the whole collection, because it's such a perfect bright green without being too lime-like in color.

Overall this collection is fabulous!!  The formula is super smooth, dry time is very quick, and the colors are all spot-on!

And...

THEY WATERMARBLE!


How freakin' awesome is that?!!  The watermarbling detail was lost in this photo since I decided to do it over the dark Sunglasses at Night as opposed to a lighter/white color, but it still stood out, just more in person :D

Each of these polishes will be available today at 7pm CST!!  Here are some links for you:


So what do you think of this collection??  Which one strikes your fancy most?  Let me know in the comments!
