I've been looking at the Model's Own Beetlejuice line for a while now and am finally rounding out the collection. As I can't seem to leave a mani alone, I tried out the fabulous black glitter LA Girl Uninhibited!
Golden Green is a duochrome switching between gold and green, funnily enough. I wasn't super impressed with it actually. It's really sheer going on so you need at least three coats going on. It also seems to take a long time to try and is easy to mess up. Finally, it really isn't much of a duochrome going on. It's pretty much just all green, all the time.

Given I was not especially impressed with Golden Green on its own, I decided to add a glitter gradient using LA Girl Glitter Addict in Uninhibited. I'm a lot happier with the colour now! Uninhibited is one of the few black glitters out there and you can create some really interesting effects with it.
The Verdict: Golden Green? Meh. I may not be the biggest fan of greens but I had high hopes for this one and was disappointed. Uninhibited though is great and I can see this looking really good with a range of colours.
Bonus Tutorial: Quick tip on how to apply a glitter gradient.
- Apply base colour
- Paint the glitter colour three quarters of the way down your nail in a thin coat.
- Repeat step two but stopping half way down your nail
- Add another thin coat a quarter of the way down.
- Finish with a top coat.
