Model City Polish 1 Year Holobration! Swatches + Giveaway!

Hello all! I'm SO excited it is finally the day I can share the news with you! Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the Model City Polish Etsy shop, and I have got a wonderful surprise for you. In honor of this milestone Nina is celebrating, several bloggers and I are "Holobrating" in a very special way. Nina has created a custom, limited edition polish to honor her supporters, and it is called Holobration! Bottles of this polish are numbered, and very limited.
First, I want to say that I have had nothing but positive experiences with Model City Polish, and I am thrilled to be celebrating this milestone with her. Her polishes are wonderfully creative, beautiful, and reasonably priced - plus she's just a super sweet person who makes each customer feel special. :)

Oh, forgot to mention before - there will also be a restock today. Here are the times, for all the different timezones:
8:00 PM EST
7:00 PM CST 
6:00 PM MST
5:00 PM PST
Don't miss it, there are some absolutely fabulous summer colors coming out, 3 of which I will be showing you this week! If you miss out on the polish you want, don't worry too much - Nina plans to work her butt off to restock what sells out, by next weekend!!
Now, I've got some swatches of Holobration for you, over two different bases to show the versatility of this polish. So without further ado, check out the photos of the amazing Holobration - but don't stop sure to read all the way to the bottom for a chance to WIN your very own bottle!!

Everyone, meet Holobration. It's a clear base packed full of large blue dots, orange hexes, pink and purple squares, and tiny silver holo micro bars.

Here's Holobration intentionally blurred to show the holographic rainbows in it!

First, I knew I had to layer this polish over black. I knew all the different colors and the large blue dots would really pop over a dark color! This is 2 coats of Holobration over Milani Black Swift. 2 coats of Seche Vite for topcoat. Let me save time here by saying the formula is great, especially for how packed it is with glitter. The large blue dots come out all on their own without a problem, but I found I preferred to drag them around and place them where I wanted them instead of leaving it random. The teeny little bars were NO problem at all, no sticking up, no curling whatsoever. Get ready for a lot of pics - this polish deserves them all!

 Then I wanted to try something brighter, more reminiscent of a celebration! I chose Milani La Vie En Rose for the base this time! Same deal, 2 coats of Holobration followed by 2 coats of SV. I think I actually prefer the pink base! So summery and fun. :)

And now for the part you've been waiting for - what you could win!! Nina was generous enough to send me an extra package to share with my lovely readers!

Here's a peek at the goodies inside! The package the winner will receive is the unopened one in the left top corner, so everything you get will be brand new and unused. These following pictures are of my items.

The winner will receive: 1 full size Model City Polish Holobration (very LE), an amazing hand made hair tie, and a mini glass file (perfectly purse size)!

  1. What a fun glitter to celebrate the anniversary! It looks awesome :)

  2. Wow that polish is so gorgeous. I love the different kinds of glitters. My favorite is on the black.

  3. It really pops when jellied over black!

  4. Just FYI, I may have messed up and entered twice for following you? The page is being weird. So if that happens, I apologize!

  5. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as +447053820826 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
