About Me

My photo
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. I have also started wildlife photography, which I enjoy very much. Welcome to my little world :-)

OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It

Yet another Muppets OPI! I put this one on top of Rimmel's Black Out for my Christmas nail effects! It's a red glitter with silver glitter.

Without flash.

With flash.

How pretty are both? The green can be found on the other blog!!! All above are of 1 coat.

This is an OPI so it's easy to use, easy to apply and has a good brush. It's also quick drying but to a dullish finish, so if you want it shiny, use a top coat. I would say to you need to be careful when applying it so you get even coverage.

7 out of 10 for this. Easy to pick up online or in John Lewis!

OPI Animal-istic

Another of the OPI Muppets Collection. This time a festive red glittery one.

Without flash.

And with flash.

All above are 2 coats.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and the brush is excellent. It's very quick drying and dries to a good finish. It's a very pretty and festive colour! Eye catching as well.

7 out of 10 for this one. can be bought from various places online or John Lewis!

Color Club Santa's Cinnamon

Another fantastic scented nail polish from Color Club, this time a sexy glittery red one.

This one is so lovely!
With flash.

And without.

All above are 2 coats.

This is easy to use and easy to apply. It's slightly thick though, well mine certainly was but didn't find that a problem. Drying time was okay, could have been quicker I guess. The smell was apparent after about 5-10 mins I'd say and it reminds me of Jawbreakers the Fireball ones - anyone remember them??? 2 coats is enough, but it did dry to a rough finish and it was fairly matte like. It lasted well and didn't scuff but the smell faded after 24 hours.

Loved the colour and loved the smell. 8 out of 10 for it. Got it from US seller on eBay.

Deborah Lippmann Good Girl Gone Bad

I had tried my best to get the new Lippmann's in the UK a few months back, but couldn't. I had to order them from the US Amazon site. Most of them are currently available from Frasers (yah). Good Girl Gone Bad is a glittery purple colour that's awesome!

Indoors with flash.

And without.

All the above are 2 coats.

I love this polish and couldn't wait to try it. So when it was time to wear a Lippmann, it was top of the list. It's easy to use, easy to apply and mega quick drying! It's very sparkly and such a pretty colour. 2 coats did the trick and it dried to a smooth finish. It was slightly matte as you can see from the flashless pics, but that's not a bad thing! Next time I wear it, I'll try it with a glossy top coat and see how that looks. AND it's easy to remove, I had actually worried about it and thought I may need the tin foil!

A definite 8 out of 10 for this winner! Currently £14 from Frasers or slightly varying prices from the US.

OPI Warm & Fozzie

A new nail polish from a fairly new collection! This time from the OPI Muppets, which is doing the rounds. This is a browny colour with hints of shiny pinky orange glitter.

Indoors with flash.

And without flash.

All the above are 2 coats.

This, like all OPIs, is easy to use, easy to apply and very quick drying. The brush rocks, goes without saying really! This polish is shiny, glittery and a fairly decent colour. It dried to fairly smooth finish and was easy to remove.

7 out of 10. Easy to pick up in the likes of Sally Salon Services, John Lewis and online.

China Glaze Snow Globe

OMG Christmas is here again! How quick was that? Another of the China Glaze Christmas Collection. A sparkly top coat this time. And what a winner.

Glittery or what! I put if on top of Rimmel's Cranberry Zest.
With flash.

And without.

I love this nail polish. It's easy to use, easy to apply and dries quickly to a fairly smooth finish. Only 1 coat is required for good coverage. Hehe it looked like I had snow on my nails :-p and I'm pretty sure it would look good on any colour! It's very multi coloured and sparkly.

A certain 8 out of 10. Easy to pick up on eBay or in Sally Salon Services.

OPI Swimsuit... Nailed It

One of the fairly new OPI Miss Universe polishes. A delightful blue.

It's dark blue and glittery!
Indoors with flash.

And without.

All above are just 1 coat!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and 1 coat does the trick! It's fairly slow drying for an OPI! Very glittery and good brush. Lasted well but it was a pain to remove, very messy. Probably be better to use the tin foil!

8 out of 10 for this one! Great colour. Easy to pick up from online.
