Models Own Mirrorball Collection - Boogie Nights, Dancing Queen, Hot Stuff, Freak Out! and Disco Inferno

Thanks to an angel from the UK who sent me these (you know who you are!), I am now the happy owner of the Models Own Mirrorball Collection.  I love glitter, but I am new to shredded glitter, so I was a bit scared that I wouldn't like them.  Oh my god, what a relief after I swatched, I loved every single one of these.  They are so strikingly gorgeous.  Boogie Nights is the purple blend, it looks great over lighter colors.  I love the lilac shreds in it, they are super sparkly.  Dancing Queen has blue and green tones, I was initially going to wear it over a green creme, but then I remembered that my friend also sent me a Nails Inc pouch with orange accents, and I wanted to take a picture of it to show my appreciation, so I went for it.  Since they are all glitter toppers in a clear base you can wear them over virtually anything.  Hot Stuff is my favorite, so much so that I changed the background of my blog to it.  I'm pretty sure the name was inspired by that Donna Summer song, it's really catchy, all day long in my head.  This has unexpected holographic gold squares and the color of the pink glitter is just perfection.  I took a video so you can see how awesome it is.  Freak Out is the blue mirrorball in the collection, it has bar glitter, so if you are like me, and love bar glitter, then you will love it.  Disco Inferno is the christmasy one, I absolutely loved this, and will be wearing it again around the holidays for sure.  The gold shreds look like real gold flakies, just stunning in real life.  Overall, great glittery combinations on each of them, I was very surprised at all the details that went into making these lacquers.  The formula requires dabbing and they smell like magic markers, but I honestly didn't care, I mean just look at them.
