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 :-)

a-England - Heathcliff

 



This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a black based glittery polish. The brush is good and the polish is easy to apply. SADLY this chipped within 8 hours of wearing :-( So best to use a top coat with this one. It is nice but just didn't last long.

China Glaze - 2030

 



Last photo in the sunshine all others in my regular lighting.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and mega quick drying (1 minute a coat). The first coat is okay but slightly streaky. Levels out nicely on the second coat. The brush is good and easy to use. Sadly a bit flaked off after a day, but didn't get any tipwear!

Illamasqua - Nurture

 


This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). It is a lovely bold and bright green with a rubbery matte finish. The brush is really good and makes painting easy. It looks amazing I think and lasted well.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4 minutes a coat). The brush is nice and good. It is a cute pink with holographic glitters. It is a smooth nail polish and not rough in anyway. Very sparkly and pretty! Lasted really well.

Color Club - Almost Famous

 


This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a nice bright yellow and stands out! The brush is really good and the formula is decent too, it isn't streaky like some yellows! It is really nice and was impressed with it. Lasted really well.
