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 :-)

Chanel 563 Vertigo

This is one of the new (well over here certainly!) polishes from Chanel. I'd say it's a hard colour to describe! Hmmm grey in some lights and brown in others with a red shimmer to it!



All with flash.



This is easy to use, easy to apply and very good quality. LOL you would expect it of Chanel! It is quick drying and lasted well! Not sure how to classify the colour but I love it nonetheless!

China Glaze Deviantly Daring

Couldn't resist when these came out, just HAD to have them!

Artificial light.



Natural light.


This is sooooo cool! It's easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's a lovely metallic iridescent nail polish. It goes from green to blue and is even golden in certain lights. It's absolutely gorgeous, haha don't tell Mr Posh, but I'm in love ;-). Lasted okay, did scuff a wee bit though.

Illamasqua Collide

Another bright one! Pink this time from Illamasqua.

All natural light.





This is easy to use, easy to apply and this brush is good. The 1st coat dries quickly but the 2nd coat is very slow. It's very bright! It lasted well at least and didn't scuff.

Deborah Lippmann Almost Paradise

This is from the Footloose collection that was released a while ago and was hard to come by over here! It's a lovely light green.

Artificial light.

This is easy to use and easy to apply, BUT the first coat is fairly streaky. The 2nd coat is fine though. It's quick drying and lasted well. It's such a lovely pale green.
