Models Own Nail Polish in Red Sea – $3.50
The Models Own SPLASH collection dives straight into summer. Revitalize your entire polish collection; wear alone for a wash effect, or over your favorite color polish for a glistening top coat. Inspired by the sea and distant shores, this pretty collection will have you dreaming of summer haze and tropical sun.

Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. I love seeing what comes my way each month! The value received this month was $23.05, even lower than last month’s value. I must say, the recent bags I have received have been more disappointing than thrilling. I happen to love receiving eyeshadow and eyeliner, but the sizes of these samples put a damper on the products for me. I hope in the future I will get bigger sample sizes or more full products, or I may have to cancel my subscription. I also love receiving nail polish, but I have not tried this one yet and the reviews I have read of it have unfortunately not been good. I have not had occasion to try the spot treatment product as of yet. As for the tanning oil, I am not one to lay out and tan – I had enough bad sunburns in the past to risk doing so at this point! I normally use SPF 30 or higher at the pool. I did use this spray on my arms on a day that we were outside but I did not use sunscreen. It felt and smelled good, but I didn’t see any benefits of using the product regularly. If you’d like to sign up to receive your own Glam Bag each month, click here!
