Hello ladies! How is your week going so far? I had a rather hard day yesterday but hopefully I’ll be okay soon. For the past two days I’ve been having a massive macaroon craving so I’m determined to go and get me some later. A little sweet never killed anyone, am I right? Plus, I’m sure they will cheer me up, so as soon as I’m done with this post I’ll head out the door and go indulge myself! Yum! <3

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, I’m sure you already know how much I love my minty / blue nail polishes. I absolutely love how they look on me and I wear them all year round. I know that some people think these shades are too daring and they’d never wear them (*cough* my best friend) but I am absolutely obsessed with them and I think they are a fresh change to your normal pink or red nail polish, which can get a bit boring sometimes. What do you guys think?

Without further ado, let’s get into the review, shall we! So I got Blooboo (how adorable is the name!) two years ago in London and what caught my eye was the unusual shade. It is basically just a pastel baby blue color but for some reason I hadn’t seen a shade similar to this one so I decided to pick it up. The nail polish has a lovely creamy finish and doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter in it. Blooboo is relatively glossy but if you fancy a bit more shine you can always put a top coat on top. :)

As far as the formula goes, Blooboo and I have a love-hate relationship. There are times where it applies like a charm – super easy and hustle-free and I’m left with a beautiful manicure. However, sometimes it decides to piss me off and my nails are left with a million little bubbles on them. It almost looks like I’m wearing a sugar / textured nail polish; it’s ridiculous! I have no idea why is that, I thought it’s because my first layer is not completely dry but it turns out it’s not the case so I’m clueless! Any suggestions? Apart from that, Blooboo (unlike Coral Reef) dries out pretty quickly, which is always a plus in my books. It stays on my nails for about five days without chipping and with minor tip wear. And as per usual with all Models Own nail polishes I review, the brush of this is way too small! It’s tiny, which sometimes may result in streakiness but I’m now pretty much used to this and doesn’t bother me as much. Oh and you’ll need two coats of this polish if you want to get full opacity. :)

Overall, I think that Blooboo is a gorgeous pastel blue shade and I really do love it. I have a slight concern about the bubble overload I experience sometimes but on those days when the polish likes to cooperate I don’t have anything negative to say. I would recommend checking it out if you’re a bit more daring and you’d love to make a lasting impression. <3 Models Own nail polishes retail for £5, which seems reasonable to me considering how long lasting they are. :) 

Have you tried Blooboo before? Which is your favorite Models Own nail polish? Do you have any suggestions on how to prevent the appearance of the annoying bubbles I tend to get? 

Lots of love,

  3. Hey hun, the pastel colour is gorgeous. I'm not sure why your experiencing bubbles, I did experience it once with a nail polish and found that the cap wasn't closing tight enough, so it was exposed to too much air. Not sure if you have the same problem though, xoxo.

  7. Love this colour, it looks really nice on you! I always find Models Own is a bit watery and gives me bubbles too which is annoying as they have the most beautiful colours

  9. Beautiful color, and wonderful thorough review, as always! I've never tried Models Own but the bubbles would definitely bother me too. But I'm always willing to look past those irritations if the color is spot on!

  30. Gorgeous colour! Bubbles tend to happen in heat or if you shake it too soon before applying. If it's a hot day put it in the fridge for a while before applying to stop the bubbles! And if you need to shake it make sure you do it at least half an hour before, that way you won't have any bubbles :) Hope that helps!
