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 - Sorry, Not Sorry

 




Last photo in the sunshine all others indoor lighting.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4 minutes a coat). The brush is thin but okay to use and the formula goes on nicely. It is a lovely iridescent polish that goes from bronze to rose gold to pink! It is quite interesting! This lasted really well.

a-England - Spirit Of The Moors

 



Last photo indoor lighting all others in the sun.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). The brush is medium sized and good. The formula goes on nicely as well. BUT this polish smells really bad, like TCP the antiseptic liquid. I've had this issue before with another blue oddly enough. I would say, the smell does disappear after a while maybe 5 or so hours. The polish is a lovely blue with a very subtle holo effect. It lasted really well and did not stain!

Chanel - Intemporel

 


This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). The brush is thin but it is okay. Sadly the formula ain't so great and this polish is slightly brush-strokey. Make sure you apply carefully to minimise the brushstrokes. It is a very nice silver and lasted really well.

OPI - Muppets World Tour

I put this over Kiko Sweet Pomegranate from the other blog!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). You get really good coverage for 1 coat! The brush and formula are both good. This glitter is slightly rough but doesn't catch on anything. I think it looks nice on the darker colour and you can really see the mix of glitters in this! Lasted really well.

a-England - Whispering Waves

 




Last photo in the sunshine, all others indoor lighting.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). AND it is a one coater! Both the brush and formula are really good. It is a kinda teal blue holo that is slightly iridescent. I found this quite hard to capture! This lasted really well too. Great quality.

Orly Color Blast - Granite (Luxe Shimmer)

 



Last photo in the sun, all others in the indoor lighting.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). The brush is medium sized and good. It is a black based polish with silver and holo glitters. It is slightly textured but not too much and doesn't catch on anything. I took the last photo in the sunshine at a pond that I visit most days. I love ponds and all the wildlife and creatures that live in and around ponds. Anyway this lasted well too.

China Glaze - Petal To The Metal

 


This is okay to use, tricky to apply and okay drying (5 minutes a coat). The formula is very streaky and runny so be careful when applying. It is a nice bold pink though and I really liked this. Lasted really well too.

OPI - Boris and Natasha




This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The brush is really good, it is a medium sized one. The formula is great and this goes on nicely. It is a lovely deep and rich plum colour. This type of polish is usually prone to tip wear in my experience, but this one didn't and it lasted really well.

Revolution - Yellow Tropic

 



Last photo under UV light.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is slightly streaky so keep brushstrokes to a minimum. It has a nice kind of pearly finish. It looks more like a lime yellow to me, than yellow! And looks fab under the UV light. It is certainly disco ready haha if only we had discos. Lasted really well too.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The brush is really good too. This polish has a great formula. It is a gorgeous green holo and really shows off the rainbows! It is almost glowing! Lasted really well and it is amazing.

Color Club - Call Of The Disco Ball

 



This is easy to use, okay to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). My bottle was slightly gloopy so reckon application would be okay with a good bottle. It is a nice peachy colour with iiridescent glitters and glows in the dark! It looks super amazing in the dark I think. This lasted really well. WARNING.. this gorgeous glow in the dark polish may cause issues with sleeping as you will want to look at your nails haha!

China Glaze - Creative Fantasy

 


This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is very sheer and patchy to apply. This was very runny too. It is a sheer jelly that is slightly matte and required 3 coats. Brush was good. Sadly got bad tip wear with this one. Maybe better over a white? Not impressed.
