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 :-)

Deborah Lippmann Here Comes The Queen

This is from the Juicy Couture set that I found VERY hard to come by at a reasonable price. I was reluctant to pay over the odds as I already have Believe from the set. This is a goldy glitter top coat. Popped it on top of the previous post.



Natural light.



Artificial light.
All above 1 coat.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. Like all Lippmann's the brush is good. I'd say it works well as a top coat. Think it would need a good few coats on its own. Lasted well and looks awesome :-)

8 out of 10. eBay at various prices.

A lot of the Lippmann polishes I want seem to be quite hard to get in the UK *sob* And some are just darn near impossible to obtain. Where do you guys, in the UK, get the ones that Frasers don't sell?

China Glaze Sexy In The City

This is an absolutely gorgeous colour. Spotted it in Sally Salon Services and just HAD to have it! I'm bad hehe.


All in sunlight.

And in the shade.
All above 2 coats. Just how gorgeous is that colour :-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and very good brush. It's quick drying and lasted well. No complaints whatsoever. Excellent quality. It's such a lovely colour, love it.

Zoya Gwin

Yah another one from the Zoya Reverie Collection. This is an orange colour with a golden shimmer.


All artificial light.


All above 2 coats.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The brush is pretty good and the lid is nice to hold. It's sort of orange with a golden shimmer and a wee bit of green, not that you can really tell from my pics (soz). I'd say it reminds me of a sunset orange. Lasted well. Like it.

7 out of 10. Dear but worth it, eBay or online at a few places in the UK.

Color Club Warhol

Yah another mega bright one. This time we have a pinky neon colour.

In sunlight.




And in the shade.

All above 2 coats.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and the brush is pretty cool. 1 coat is quick drying but 2 coats is a wee bit slow. It's mega neon and pretty. Lasted well so no complaints.

Nails Inc Garrick Street

My first Nails Inc post! Yah. This is an iridescent lovely. Mr Posh doesn't understand what my obsession with iridescence is. I'm the same when I see cars! How cool. This is purple and blue and amazing.



Artificial light.
All natural light.






All above are 2 coats. Tried my best to capture the change in colour.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and has a good brush. It's also quick drying which is always a winner. It's gorgeous and got some really nice comments from peeps. It looks quite sparkly in the sunshine as well. Didn't last well, once it got chipped it was very flaky and keep coming off. So need to use a top coat with it for sure. It's hot and lovely!

8 out of 10. Most Nails Inc retails should have it.

a-england Bridal Veil

My first ever a-england nail polish! Yah. This is the black holo-ish one.



Many pics to follow all in natural light.






All above 2 coats.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The brush is really good and the lid makes it easy to hold and paint the nail with. I'd say it's black sparkly and then holo in sunlight. Looks amazing in sunlight! Absolutely gorgeous. And it lasted well!! Love this one.
