About Me

My photo
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. I have also started wildlife photography, which I enjoy very much. Welcome to my little world :-)

OPI - Chic From Ears To Tail


This is hard to use, hard to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The formula is very streaky and awkward to use. This is a mini bottle and that didn't help having a mini brush either. Make sure there is plenty polish on the brush and keep strokes to a minimum to reduce drag and streaks. Maybe the normal bottle with the regular brush would be better? It is a lovely pink and has a really subtle silver shimmer that doesn't really show....though you can see it in the bottle in the middle photo. Nice enough but hard to work with. Lasted really well.

Easy to use = 5/10
Application = 4/10
Drying time = 8/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 3
Finish = creamy with subtle shimmer
Removal = easy
Overall = 6/10
Purchased from = can't recall

My Personal Rating = 6/10

Dance Legend - Supergalaxy


This is okay to use, okay to apply but kinda need to dab glitters on and it is really slow drying. The others from this collection (Round Space) where also very slow drying. After 1 hour I put on a top coat as I wanted to get on with my life! The polish is dark green black based with holographic glitters of different shapes and sizes. This polish didn't catch either with or without the top coat. The brush is good but the formula isn't and said before, you need to dab on the glitters. The last photos is of the little light that is in the lid. Some of them still work! Lasted really well.

Easy to use = 6/10
Application = 6/10
Drying time = 0/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = jelly glitter bomb
Removal = easy with foil method, let it soak for 2 minutes
Overall = 6/10
Purchased from = Rainbow Connection

My Personal Rating = 7/10 despite the drying issues I still like it!

Deborah Lippmann - Believe

I am finally back. Not had a great few months but doing better now. I doubt I'll be posting everyday but will try to post every few days. Thanks to everyone for their kind words :-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The brush is thin but very good and applies the polish nicely. The formula is very good too. It is a nice metallic champagne colour but not really sure it is an ideal colour for me. It lasted really well.

Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 8/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = metallic
Removal = okay
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Frasers

My Personal Rating = 6/10 good quality just not my colour
