Hedonist Butterflies NOTD

This is Models Own Hedonist from the Hedkandi collection.

This bright matte shade has been plastered over the blogging world recently. I first saw it in the bottle store in Westfield White City and knew instantly that I had to have it. 

I don't own many matte nail polishes but I do love the love of the finish. However, matte polish is far less resilient so I will mostly apply a layer (or two) of a strong top coat to make sure my manicure lasts me!

Originally, I tried using a konad-like stamper set to create some white butterfly patterns but the white didn't come out very opaque on top of the hedonist. 

After the stamping, I took a leaf out of Leanne's (Do Not Refreeze) book and layered over Models Own Tropical Sun - a beautiful sheer duo chrome peachy gold polish which almost brings the colour alive. 

However, in real life, you couldn't really see the white butterflies so I decided to remove my design and play with black and white decals. This is definitely more what I was going for! 

(I think flat sticker decals are great! They look so perfect and if you use the right top coat, they don't even look like stickers and last for about a week)

Do you own this polish? What do you think of the shade?

Love love and hedonistlove!!
