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 :-)

Morgan Taylor - Sunset Yellow

This is the first of the jelly toppers you put on the Chrome Base.




Last photo is from my phone all others normal lighting.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is one coat over the Chrome Base. It looks great and like a golden colour. The brush was good and made application easy. Lasted really well.

Christian Louboutin - Coccinella

 


This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). The brush is really good and it is easy to paint with despite being a very long lid! 1 coat would have done but I used 2 here. It is a gorgeous orangey/red colour. Lasted really well and great quality.

Morgan Taylor - Chrome Base

 


This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (5-6 minutes a coat). It is slightly brush strokey, but not so bad! It is a mini bottle but the brush is really good. It is a gorgeous and shiny silver, very bold! It is from the Chrome Set that was a gift. The idea is you have the silver base and jelly colours on top. So I will post them over the next few weeks! This lasted well.

Yves Saint Laurent - Holographic Black

 



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a nice black polish with silver glitters. The polish is slightly matte too. The brush was good. The polish wasn't rough at all. Lasted okay and it is a nice black.

Color Club - Gingerbread Man

 


This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a nice gold foil and it is scented too. The scent is very strong when painting - just like sweet ginger cookies - but faded soon after drying and I could barely smell it. It is an old polish so maybe that is why is scent was weak? Sadly this polish didn't last well either, it chipped the next day! So if you want it to last longer I suggest a top coat!

OPI - Manicurist Of Seville

 


This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4 minutes a coat). It is a rich berry colour, hopefully I have captured it well! 1 thick coat would have done but I have used 2 here. It is really nice and lasted well.
