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 :-)

Color Club Seaside

Ugg not been posting lately, been quite tired. Maybe it's the weather over here?
This is okay to use and okay to apply. It's quite slow drying compared to other texture polishes I've tried. The first coat is fairly streaky and I had to use a thick one for the second. I'd say it is quite a gritty one and got caught in my hair, something I hadn't really noticed with other textures. I think it is a lovely colour but certainly not as slick as others polishes of this type. Lasted really well. Part of Color Club's new Sea Salt Texture range.

OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby

One of the new Gwen Stefani polishes!
This is easy to use and easy to apply. It's also quick drying too. It is has a 'satin finish' which I understand now having had the polish on. It's absolutely gorgeous and lasted well.

I'm more a fan of Bush than GS or No Doubt, but I do really like the tracks Ex Girlfriend and Hella Good and I do own a few of their albums and her first solo one.

a-england Avalon

Not had an a-england on in a while!

This is okay to use and okay to apply. I found this one slightly trickier than the others! It was also slower drying than other a-england polish I've tried before. But all those down sides don't matter because it's a gorgeous purple colour! Lasted well.

OPI Wonderous Star

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's golden with black dots in it. Make sure you have lots on the brush to get good coverage and I found that I had to play about with moving the dots on some nails! Lasted well.

Deborah Lippmann Run, Run Rudolph

Hope everyone had a great new year! Mine wasn't great was in bed for most of 31st and 1st. I'm a lot better now and back on track with things!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's a gorgeous red with flaky flecks in it. They look red and golden in certain lights. This was a pain to remove, didn't use the foils - lazy! Lasted really well.
