Models Own Ice Cream Sundae coll. swatches

I recently bought Models Own Ice Cream Sundae box set
They are all cream colors and I found that most of them are a bit brighter than the bottle show. Here you have them shown in two coats, and as always I'll later show you the colors with nail art...
A quick question: I love to see swatches on your blogs. But nail art is where my heart is, so "real swatches" doesn't quite give me pleasure to do myself. But I like to do them on swatch sticks, because I focus on the color, nothing else - and I try to show them very true to color (if you screen is calibrated correctly).
So how do you feel about this kind of swatches?
Jeg købte fornylig Models Own Ice Cream Sundae box set
Det er creme lakker, og de fleste virker en smule klarerer/stærkere i farven end flasken giver indtryk af. Her har du dem i to lag, og som sædvanlig vil jeg senere vise nogle af farverne med nail art...
Og et lille hurtigt spørgsmål: Jeg elsker at se swatches på andres blogge. Men nail art er hvor mit hjerte ligger, så "rigtige swatches" giver mig ikke længere glæde at arbejde med. Men jeg kan faktisk godt li' at vise farverne på på swatchs sticks som her, fordi jeg fokuserer på farven og intet andet, jeg viser dem tæt på den rigtige farve, hvis din skærm ellers er rigtigt kalibreret.
Så hvad synes du on denne måde at præsentere farver?

Beth's Blue - maybe a little lighter IRL
Fuzzy Peach - is just a little dustier than shown
Jaded Stone
Lemon Meringue
Lilac Dream

  1. I like blogs that vary a bit. I don't mind swatches, but I tend to get bored with the blogs that only show swatches. I like to see a little bit of this and that, if that makes sense :)

    1. Thank you so much Rainbowify Me - I can see my questions was a bit unclear, so I just changed it in the above - I meant if swatches on swatch sticks are OK vs. on nails :)

  5. Jeg er til det hele indenfor negle, men kan ikke leve uden swatches, jeg bliver utrolig inspireret af dem. Lakker jeg ik' troede jeg gad, må jeg bare eje efter at have set gode swatches. Men synes din måde at swatche på er fin, jeg sidder da i hvert fald og overvejer om jeg lige skal købe min første models own :)

  7. Lovely colours, very soft, great for the summer! I like swatches. This way I can choose or select the polishes I like at home already and am I sure about how it will look like. If the swatches are on real nails or sticks doesn't matter to me.

  8. Ah, what pretty colors! I so wish I had easier access to Models Own in the US.

    As for your question, I don't mind either way. As a blogger myself, I think it is most important to do what you like. You shouldn't feel pressured to do something just because others are doing it. If you love nail art, you should concentrate on that, and swatches on sticks is totally ok! :-)

  14. Thanks for showing these. This brand is really hard to get in the US without paying an arm and a leg for over seas shipping. I am so glad you showed them on their own before you did any flower art with them.

    Svar
    1. Yes, I can see their overseas shipping is expensive, but when you live in Denmark you are used to having to pay and arm in freight from the US - and the polish is still cheaper than in our shops LOL
      I'm happy you like them, thanks beachgal - flowers??, how could you guess ;)

  19. Wooo what a lovely collection!! I think it is a great idea to use the sticks! :D That way if you keep them, you will be able to whip them out at any time to remember the exact shade of a polish, compare it with other ones, etc.. :D

    Svar
    1. Thanks a lot Ashesela, I do keep them, I have them color sorted on chains, that makes it easy to ad a new stick the exact right place without removing a lot to get it in there. You can see them on the DIY page in the top menu!

  20. all these shades are soooo pretty!!!
    i think it doesn't matter, if you swatch them on your nails or just on swatch sticks. i know how time consuming it is, to swatch the colours on your nails...
    your nail art is lovely and i love to see what you create, but i think swatches are interesting too. they help me decide, if i buy a polish or skip it.

    As for swatches, I liked the post because it was short and showed a brand I can get but in general I don't really like swatches, especially for brands I will never have access to, I much prefer nail art.

  27. I like the sticks a lot, when you show the bottle just behind the stick it is probably even better than ordinary swatches because it shows if the color changes when on "the nail". I don't do swatches either, just notd:s, unfortunately minus your great nail art
