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 :-)

OPI Super Bass Shatter

This is the shatter I put on top of Maybelline Green Zing. It's kinda my Hallowe'en nails ;-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and really quick drying (about a minute a coat). It dries matte so I added a top coat to the ring finger *gasp*!!!! I think with the topper, it shows the sparkles more! It's nice and certainly makes that green look better ;-) Lasted well with top coat.

China Glaze But Of Corpse

One of last years Hallowe'en China Glazes. Picked up last year....just getting around to wearing it this year.....sounds familiar? ;-) :-D

This is easy to use, easy to apply and mega quick drying (less than a minute). It's a pretty matte polish with black dots and it's slightly textured. Really is the ideal Hallowe'en polish! I do like it a lot. Lasted really well.

Jade Galaxy

This is easy to use, easy to apply and really slow drying (8 minutes a coat). It's a pretty gold polish with holographic glitters! The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. Lasted well.

Ciate All Aglow

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). I would say, make sure you have plenty of polish on the brush for good coverage. It's a nice festive glitter. I tried it solo to see what it was like, but I'm sure it would look great over darker colours! This lasted okay.

Morgan Taylor Fit For A Queen

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-1.5 minutes a coat). It's a pretty red glittery polish. I think it looks very festive and like blended raspberries in the last photo! I'm sure the addition of a top coat would make it look smoother! Had slight tip wear but lasted well otherwise.
