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 :-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (2-3 minutes). I was quite surprised with this one. I had expected the polish to be much more purple than this! Just look at the bottle shots! I think it is just like a black. It is okay I guess. Lasted well.

    1. Yeah sadly. A few were okay (Tess and Shalott) and I've not tried Dorian Gray yet. I really didn't like Jane Eyre though :-( I can understand that! :-)

  6. It's pretty, though I wish more of the purple came through. But it still looks very pretty on you. :)

  12. I though it's going to be some kind of dark-blue-purple or something, but it's totally black. I thought it's bcuz you wear a lot coats for each, but I read that you only wear 1 coat. Well, still pretty black :D

  17. hmmm.. you know, I really hate it when a polish looks one way in a bottle and then it turns out differently on a nail. This looks totally black!! And this purple shimmer would be spectacular if it actually came out... I"m so disappointed for you!!

    1. It is very annoying isn't it!!!! It really does! It would look amazing if it did come out like that! :-)

  18. :'( i love the purple shimmer in the bottle! i hate it when polishes end up being darker than they look in the bottle!

    1. That's how I felt *sniff sniff*! I know it's amazing. Annoying especially since it was expensive! :-(

  19. All the "dark ladies", as I call them, were more black on nails than in the bottle (maybe just the green had more visible shimmer). I didn't mind much, as I love dark polishes, but I understand that being a bummer for someone.
    I read about a trick (on Pshiiit blog, I think) to make the shimmer more visible: you should use some polish remover to "remove" some polish (a sort of sponging it away), then the shimmer is more visible and you apply a coat of top coat.

    1. Lol good name for them. Yeah the green one was a bit more visible on the nails. Dark polishes are nice. I will need to check that technique out one day :-)
