I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. Welcome to my little world :-)

Zoya - Happi

 




This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a thin brush but good to paint with. This is a gorgeous pink with a golden/greeny shimmer. Lasted really well.

China Glaze - Meet Me Under The Stars

 




Last photo in the sun, all others inside.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (2-3 on the first coat, bit slower on the second about 8 minutes). It is lovely and sparkly! It is a black based polish with silver and blue glitters. It sadly chipped after 24 hours but was doing heavy duty housework!

Quo by Orly - Mega Orange

 



This is a gloopy and thick bottle, but was okay to use, okay to apply and fairly quick drying for a gloopy formula (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous sparkly orange with a golden shimmer and it is slightly textured. I think it looks amazing and was a one coater! Lasted really well. Despite it being thick, it performed well.

China Glaze - Don't Let The Dead Bite

This is one from a Hallowe'en range a while ago! Finally getting around to wearing it!!!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a lovely pink based polish with red glitters. It is something a bit different and cool! Sadly didn't last so well as some of the glitters near the end of the nail chipped off, so wear a top coat with it!
