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 :-)

Color Club - Marina

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. It is a gold texture polish. I think it is one for the die-hard texture fan as it is very textured and quite rough. I must confess I do love a good texture and I like this one a lot. Lasted really well.

Hits - Unconventional

I bought this many years ago and it had slightly dried, so thought I'd better swatch it!

The formula is gloopy and thick. This was hard to apply and slow drying (10 minutes a coat). It is a gorogeous iridescent polish. Purples, pinks, blues and oranges can be seen. I think a normal bottle would be fine. I cannot find my thinner so will need to invest in another bottle of thinner. It certainly is gorgeous and has a great shift.

Dance Legend - Celia



This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (5-6 minutes a coat). It is sheer on the first coat, but the second coat is okay and builds up nicely. It is a lovely purple iridescent polish. Purples, pinks, bronze and blues can been seen. Noticed slight tip wear after 3 days, but lasted well otherwise.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a lovely pink colour. Sometimes I just fancy wearing pink, even though I'm not really a girlie girl! Lasted really well.
