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 :-)

Ciate Day 20 - House Of Mirrors

We are nearly there!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a holo, but not that intense or strong! Sadly there was no sun in Scotland, so I couldn't get decent photos! It is okay I guess, but there are much better holos out there! Lasted well.

Ciate Day 17 - Nail Super Hero


This is a nail treatment and I didn't review it. I think to get good results you would need to use it for a few weeks. Sounds like a good thing though! :-)

Ciate Day 14 - Nail File

A nail file has featured before: 2016 and 2015! 2015's was the best and I got photobombed in those photos too :-D
This is exactly the same as 2016! It isn't as good at the 2015, as this is a standard type that you would find in most stores!

My Personal Rating = 6/10 again!

Ciate Day 13 - Moondust

This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (6-7 minutes a coat, at least!). It is a gorgeous shimmery polish and iridescent too. 1 coat would have done but I used 2. I noticed dents after 45 minutes so be patient with this. It really looks fab and lasted well once dry!
