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 - Otherworldly

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It dries matte and the glitters aren't at all sparkly like in the bottle! Despite this, I do still like it. It looks cool and it lasted really well. It also did not stain!

China Glaze - IDK

First and last photo indoors, all others in the sunlight!

This is okay to use, okay to apply and mega quick drying (less than a minute a coat). Like the others in the set, it is prone to bald spots so make sure you have plenty polish on the brush. It is a lovely purple holo polish, the effect is very strong with this one. Unlike this others before, this lasted really well!

Dance Legend - Green Monster


This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It take 3 coats but gives a great finish. It is a gorgeous green with a blue and pinky shimmer and it is a glow in the dark polish too! I think it is pretty cool! Lasted really well.

Dance Legend - Inception

First 3 indoors and last photo in the sunshine.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and very slow drying - it was still tacky after 1 hour! So this is definitely not one if you are in a hurry! Or cheat and use a quick drying top coat. It is a lovely pinky red jelly glitter bomb! It last okay. It is nice and the only downside is the drying time :-|

China Glaze - BFF


This is okay to use, okay to apply and very quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). The first coat is quite patchy so make sure you have plenty polish on the brush. It builds up nicely on the second coat. Lasted okay.
