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 Purple Rain



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 2 minutes a coat). It's a pretty lilac metallic polish. Brush strokes aren't too bad - but still visible on macro! Lasted really well.

  1. Oh this sends vintage vibes my way - I'm sorry but this is to me a granny polish (even if I don't wear them) - I'm guessing it's the metallic finish that gives me that feeling ;)

  2. It's funny how the camera seems to pick up brush strokes that you can't see in real life :)

  5. Yeah, a bit vintage yet nice, I wonder how it would stamp. You know, I've bought Margaret Asor lately that should be gelly and appeared vintage gelly ;), what more - pearly :O Brush strokes were awful in this one but it appeared very useful for stamping.

    1. I'm sure it would stamp quite well! Vintage gelly - that sounds interesting lol! Yeah sometimes they can I guess :-)

    2. I've just noticed the Asor thing :D hehe :D yeah, I was surprised about the finish too but it looks so much brushstrokey that I don't know if I want to swatch it solo!

    3. Yeah I know what you mean, sometimes it's good to see the polish as is though! :-)

  6. For me looks very pretty, delicate and probably could go very well with some stamping or freehand designs.

    1. Yeah delicate is a good way to describe it as well. I do quite like it. Some flowers or something like that would look good with it :-)
