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 - Chameleon

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a greeny blue iridescent polish. It is also very shiny too! Sadly it is slightly brush-strokey so careful application is required, though I think it looks less in the green form compared to the blue! Lasted well.

Color Club - Hot Like Lava

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It is a lovely magenta foil colour and it is very shiny! Would be great for stamping I think. It think it looks amazing. Lasted well.

OPI - Yodel Me On My Cell

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4-5). It is a nice tealy blue with a subtle shimmer. I did notice tip wear though, so top coat recommended for duration.

OPI - Shim-merry Chic

I don't often like browns, but this one is an interesting polish.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a chocolate brown with iridescent flakies. It is nice and I was impressed with it. I think it must be one of the few browns I actually like ;-) Lasted well.

Butter London - Jack The Lad

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (7-8 minutes a coat). It is a blackened green base with lovely glitters that are slightly iridescent going from green to blue. I did get tip wear after basic housework though, so top coat is recommended for longevity.
