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 :-)

Seventeen Mix Mosaic Nail Effects Pink Mix

I put this over Dance Legend Teliko.

This is okay to use and okay to apply. It is more like dabbing onto the nails than painting. I dipped the brush in and out a few times to make sure I had plenty of glitters on the brush. Drying time was okay about 5 minutes. It's a nice mix of colours and I think it looks nice on the silvery colour. Lasted well.

I'm back!

Hi everyone!!!

I'm back, finally.

Thanks to everyone who wished me well. And sorry for not being about! It will probably take me about a week to get back into the swing, so bear with me!

I have been painting and buying! But for now here are photos of the 15 month old puppy! He's a crazy puppy!

Aldi were selling some nail polishes before Christmas so I picked up a few!

This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (3 minutes a coat). It is very prone to brushstrokes so careful application is needed! It's a nice enough polish and the husband thinks it looks kinda pearl-like! Lasted well.
