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 :-)

Models Own Disco Inferno

I put this on top of Avon Lavished Blue!



And with the flash:



This is okay to use and okay to apply. Make sure there is plenty on the brush for good coverage. Dip it in and out a few times before applying to the nail. It is really slow drying (at least 10 minutes a coat). It is a pretty cool looking glitter and looks good over the blue! Lasted well.
