Model City Polish Strawberry Jam and PB&J Swatches & Review

Hello readers! Today I have two awesome polishes from Nina over at Model City Polish. I have been admiring this brand from afar for a while now so I was very excited when she contacted me asking if I'd like to write some reviews. Obviously my answer was YES!!!  Here are two MCP polishes with tasty names and even more delicious styles.


PB&J features a dark grape purple jelly base filled with small and medium iridescent gold hexes.  The formula was amazing.  It was super easy to apply and the glitter didn't require any dabbing to get it all over the nail.  It took three coats to become opaque are dried quite smoothly.  I used a thicker top coat to get a glassy smooth finish but you could definitely get away with a thin top coat too.


Photos show three coats of PB&J with one coat of Seche Vite in natural sunlight.  I ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches every day for lunch for several years in a row as a kid and eventually got so sick of them that I still can't eat them to this day.  However, I feel exactly the opposite about this PB&J inspired polish.  I feel like I could wear it over and over and never get sick of it.

Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam is a rich red jelly packed with two sizes of small iridescent red, silver and pink glitter.  The formula was fantastic and it applied easily.  It took two coats to become opaque but I added a third to get a more sparkly look.  Despite all the glitter this polish dried quite smoothly.

Photos show three coats of Strawberry Jam with one coat of Seche Vite in natural lighting.  I think the name is quite fitting.  The polish looks so squishy and scrumptious just like the real thing. 


I'm really loving these two polishes though I think I have to choose PB&J as my personal favorite.  First of all, jellies that go opaque in a reasonable number of coats? Yes please! Then add in the glitters that dry quite smoothly.  Even better!  This just means that I'm going to have to add some other MCPs to my ever growing wish list.  If you want to get your hands on either of these polishes check out the Model City Polish shop.  Don't forget to visit the MCP facebook page for lots of swatches and updates too!  I hope you got your fill of polish today because tomorrow I'll be back with the first ever Off Topic Tuesday.  Until then, happy polishing. :)
