Models Own | Scented Fruit Pastel Collection & Swatches

L-R - Banana Split | Blueberry Muffin | Strawberry Tart | Grape Juice | Apple Pie

"Five pretty pastel shades that cleverly release an infused fruity scent, keeping fingers fresh and fashionable! Once dry they emit a subtle, but pretty perfume that matches their name. Complete with retro 'scratch and sniff' stickers!"

If you read my blog regularly you know I am a huge fan of Models Own nail varnishes and own quite a few of their collections now. So when I heard they were releasing a new 'scented' range, I was very intrigued to see what they would be like. Models Own nail varnishes cost £5 each but this collection costs £20, so that's saving you a fiver! Who doesn't love a saving? 
These are all such pretty colours and have such sweet names! I am a big lover of pastel shades, so this collection was right up my street. They even come with little 'scratch 'n' sniff' stickers on the top of the bottles, so you get to try before you buy I guess! ;) (Totally reminds me of my 90's childhood with those scratch and stickers you could buy, oh and gel pens!)
At first glance I thought I was going to end up with a couple of dupes of shades I already own. Grape Juice reminded me of Lilac Dream and Blueberry Muffin looked like Beth's Blue but after swatching them together this collection is a much lighter, pastel version! 
As for the 'scent', you still got your typical nail varnish smell when applying them but as they dried you do get a slight hint of what they were supposed to be. Strawberry Tart is the strongest of scents and smells so yummy. The nail varnishes consistency itself was a bit watery. You needed to apply quite a few coats to get a decent finish. I found they streaked a lot more then the normal Models Own Polishes.
A fun little gimmick which doesn't last long but I will love and use the colours nonetheless!
