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 :-)

China Glaze Sci-Fly By

This is one of the new-ish holos from China Glaze.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's a light blue with a subtle holo effect. I used the Nfu Oh Aqua Base with this. I'd have to say it looks pretty poor in other lighting but looks awesome in the sunshine, so a summer nail polish for sure! Lasted really well.

Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 8/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = holo
Removal = easy enough, aqua base makes is tricky sometimes
Overall = 7/10
Purchased from = eBay as a complete set

My Personal Rating = 7/10 it's not as extreme as some of the other holos I've got, but it's alright!

I'm back!

What an unbelievable two months we've had! Needless to say it's all over and I don't really want to think about it anymore.

Sadly my nails aren't in the best condition with packing and unpacking. My photo gear is still packed away! Will need to think of some other way of getting photos lol.

I sadly missed the 3-4 weeks of gorgeous sunshine we had in Scotland and I could have worked my way through all those holos!!!! Oh well.

I've got a few polishes that I wore before that fateful day we were told we no longer had a home (13th June). I cannot believe the last time I painted my nails was the 11th of June!!!!! Today I'm wearing Perceval and this is the first time I've painted for ages, will need to get back into the swing lol.

What I've learned from this? Don't ever rent privately, they can just chuck you out 'your' house at any time. This is the 2nd time it's happened to us in 3 years!!!

Thankfully we are in a much better frame of mind now :)
