Releasing my inner Minaj

I can't believe how hot and sunny it has been lately and I have got just the brightest polish to give the bright sun a run for its money. This is aciiied from Models Own.


It's definitely not safe for office work, it's loud, in your face and it reminds me of Nicky Minaj luridly bright hair, outfit and makeup. In fact it's too bright for me and had I seen swatches of this 9 months ago, I probably wouldn't have bought it. Yes this is how long it has taken me to play with it.


Aciiied offers a superb coverage (the photos show 2 coats of polish) but application was a bit laborious. It's not streaky, nor patchy but the formulation is quite thick and I found it quite hard to control the flow and place the polish where I wanted to. It felt as if the polish was controlling me. My first attempt at painting my nails was a disaster. The second one was much better: I had to take my time, I made sure the brush was lightly loaded (I usually load it up and wack it on) and just go very slowly basically.



If you like bright acid green verging on neon yellow, you'll go past the distinctively strong smell of the polish and its application woes. I think it would make a perfect dupe for OPI 'did it on em', but at half the price.  Aciiied made me realise that I'm much more a lime green type of person and that my favourite lime green to date was not so bad after all.

I love wearing yellowy green shades, they're just so...weird. Nobody really wears them. Not a huge Models Own polish fan, though :( Barry M do a nice one, though!
