Models Own Festival Nail Polish - Pink Wellies

I admit it's been a few years since I went to a festival. Even when I did go I can't say any of them were the best experiences of my life. I remember lots of tantrums, arguments, warm wine and a general feeling of icky-ness. I don't think I'm made for the camping lifestyle! Though it can't have been all bad as I returned 4 times, 3 being Reading Festival and the last try was V Fest.


I'm not a huge fan of camping, that's the biggest problem, I have a rule: 'if you re doing a poo on somebody else's poo then you've made a wrong decision' -I can't take credit for that, Joe Lycett said it on an episode of 8 out of 10 cats and I completely agree. 

There are some ok bits though, the music is good, there's a great atmosphere and I do enjoy the dressing up part of it. Long-gone are the days of slumming it, I never believed in the 'just using a wet wipe to wash for 4 days' thing. I'm a high maintenance camper. I always brought a cordless straightener with me, I used the showers (well, the tap in the campsite if the queue was too long) I drank my wine out of plastic champagne flutes and even my tent had a duvet and air bed (I'm not even joking).

My festival look was heeled wellies (or knee boots before I discovered my healed Hunters), knee socks with denim skirt and a  black t-shirt with a name on the back that matched the rest of my group. We did this properly!

One year we used very bright pink and orange lipsticks to draw all over ourselves and compliment our glow sticks .

Thankfully there are a few more options to have more of a festival look. I know some fashionistas have the whole Coachella thing down but it doesn't all have to be hard work. 

When I think of make-up and nails at a festival I want it to be fairly low maintenance but still have a bit of a fun look to it. It's a time to let our hair down after all.

Models Own have hit the nail on the head with their Festival Collection. They know bright colours are essential so have created a range to add some colour to your hair and body with their hairsprays, lipsticks and body paints. If that's a bit much they have a selection of neon polishes that will brighten up any mud covered outfit. 


Pink Wellies is a really bright neon pink. Think 'school highlighters' and you've got it. Unlike the Hypergel collection that I have a love/hate relationship with (great colour and finish but barely lasts about 5 hours on me!)  these last really well which is perfect for a weekend in a 
field full of people.

Even if neons aren't usually your thing they are a great way to loosen up a bit and try something different. for £4.99 it's a great price even if you only wear it once or twice then return to the office after the bank holiday with nude nails.

I really love a bright nail so this collection is right up my street, I already have my eye on the shade Purple Bandana which is a really vibrant purple unlike any shade I've seen before.


These are currently 3 for 2 at Superdrug so it's a great time to pick one up -technically it's free!

*I was kindly sent this for review purposes but as always all thoughts are 100% my own



  1. Haha I'm with you on enjoying the more glamourous side of life at a festival - gas cannister straightener all the way! This shade is perfect too, if I was going to a fez this year then this would definitely be gracing my nails :)
