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 - Chrome Green

 



This is okay to use, tricky to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). These type of chrome polishes are prone to bald spots and quite brush strokey too and this one certainly is. Careful application is required, try to reduce how many strokes you do on each nail. It is nice enough and quite a shiny green. It did last well though, usually these sort of polishes don't in my experience!

Zoya - Happi

 




This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a thin brush but good to paint with. This is a gorgeous pink with a golden/greeny shimmer. Lasted really well.

China Glaze - Meet Me Under The Stars

 




Last photo in the sun, all others inside.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (2-3 on the first coat, bit slower on the second about 8 minutes). It is lovely and sparkly! It is a black based polish with silver and blue glitters. It sadly chipped after 24 hours but was doing heavy duty housework!

Quo by Orly - Mega Orange

 



This is a gloopy and thick bottle, but was okay to use, okay to apply and fairly quick drying for a gloopy formula (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous sparkly orange with a golden shimmer and it is slightly textured. I think it looks amazing and was a one coater! Lasted really well. Despite it being thick, it performed well.
