Scotland
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 :-)

Colour Alike V Village

It was a sunny day in Scotland, once, so holo time!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). As with all CA polishes this dries and had a slight scent. It is a gorgeous green holo! I was impressed as it looks fab in the sunsine. Lasted well.

Avon Galaxy

This is easy to use, okay to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). And it is a one coater! It is slightly brush-strokey, so be careful with application. I think 2 coats might have been better. Noticed slight tip wear too.

Colour Alike 606 Yellow Flash

This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (5-6 minutes a coat). The 1st coat is streaky, but I used a thinner coat and for the 2nd coat was less streaky as it was thicker. It is a very nice bright neon! Lasted well.

And with all CA's polishes this one is slightly scented too!

Holiday Hauls

I have been travelling a lot lately and decided that every country I visit, I would buy nail polish. Only seems logical ;-) Not sure the boyfriend agrees, but at least he puts up with it LOL ;-)

First up was Greece:



Then Albania:



Then Amsterdam:



And finally Paris:



We visited Belfast too, didn't get the chance to buy any polish. So will need to visit Belfast again ;-)

Colour Alike 608 Hot Red


This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). Like all CA polishes, it dries and is slightly scented - kind of like sweeties! It's a gorgeous bold neon. I would say it is more a coral colour than red - but I still like it a lot. Lasted well.
