'Glam it up a Gear' with Ford Retail and Models Own


Hey girls, have you heard the news?

Ford Retail have teamed up with one of my favourite makeup and nail brands, Models Own, to develop a bespoke nail polish set for this Autumn/Winter. The bold nail varnishes have been created in three gorgeously vibrant Fiesta colours and will be initially available exclusively to people testing the new Ford Fiesta's for the month of September at a Ford Retail new car dealership!

The limited edition set includes a Hot Magenta, a lively Candy Blue (if I were to buy a Ford Fiesta then this would be the colour I'd want, hehe) and a statement Gold; the party appropriate Fashionista.

If you want to get your hands on these specially designed colours - and believe me, you really do - all you have to do is visit the Ford Retail site: Glam it up a Gear, register your details and then head on over to one of the 45 new car showrooms at a Ford Retail dealership around the country. Once you've enjoyed a test drive, the nail polish set will be posted out to you, just in time for the new season.

The new Ford Fiesta combines contemporary style with state-of-the-art technology, and every feature is designed to make the driving experience fashion forward. The new Fiesta also comes with Ford SYNC which allows drivers to stay connected to friends and family whilst on the move and play music from USB, MP3/iPod or via Bluetooth. With simple voice commands, the system allows for calls to be made as well as messages to be read aloud, which can then be responded to using pre-selected commands. The new Ford Fiesta's 1.0 EcoBoost petrol engine combines satisfying power with exceptional fuel efficiency and it comes in a range of twelve striking colours.

Ford Retail's Group Marketing and E-Commerce Director Celia Pronto said, "With London Fashion Week coming up, this is the perfect time to be launching our road-worthy nail polish collection. It's exciting to team up with Models Own to create a bespoke set of colours matching our new Ford Fiesta range; and we are thrilled with how they have turned out. With such a high gloss finish, the colours lend themselves perfectly to the stylish new Ford Fiesta's and are ideal for keeping your nails on-trend as the Autumn/Winter season starts".

Kayleigh Holder, Head Manicurist of Models Own said "The bold colours we've included in the Ford Retail 'Glam It Up' nail polish set are an easy way to add a touch of glamour to your look. The on-trend Magenta helps keep your nails classic, whereas the Candy Blue and Fashionista colours can help make a bolder statement, especially for the upcoming party season".

So, will you be booking yourself in for a test drive in order to get your hands on this awesome trio? As always, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading.

    1. It really is! I have my nails painted in it at the mo. They look a bit rubbish though as half of them broke last week and I haven't had chance to neaten them up. Hence there being no accompanying pic ;) xx
