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 :-)

NYC Starry Silver Glitter

This was the glitter I put on China Glaze Glow With The Flow.





This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (3 minutes a coat). It's a pretty glittery topper with holo particles. Make sure you have plenty on the brush for good coverage. Looks nice on the pink. This was only swatched.

Rimmel Green With Envy




This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (about 4 minutes a coat). I got this polish back in 2007! It's a gorgeous green colour with a very subtle blue shift. You can just about make the shift out! Lasted well.

Colour Alike 550






This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat, but still tacky after 10 minutes). It's a nice pinky colour with lots going on! It's iridescent and holographic. I really hadn't realised it was holographic until I was talking the photos. I sadly didn't manage to capture it in the sun though! It is slightly scented but it really isn't that strong compared to other CA polishes I've tried! Lasted well.

Essence Bubble Bath




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a pretty baby blue colour and it dried to a satin finish, which I hadn't expected! I really like it. The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. Lasted well.

NYC Blue Majesty

Eek a week since my last post. Sorry.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and variable drying time - 1 coat is about 3 minutes and the 2nd coat took about 10 minutes! It's a really pretty blue glitter. Lasted well. **WARNING this polish stained my nails quite badly**

Sally Hansen Sea And Be Seen

As some of you may know, I got a little puppy. Here is another photo of him:
His name is Marlowe and he was 8 weeks old on Monday there. This is a photo of him playing with his Kong. He is a Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla. I hope to be about as much as I can :-)





This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a fairly sheer polish and did need 3 coats. The last coat did dry a bit slower about 5 minutes. It's a pretty blue polish with a slight purple shift. Lasted well.

Make Up Gallery Scarlett Sparkle

A new brand to the blog today. This one comes from Poundland and it's called Make Up Gallery. (Poundland is a discount store we have in the UK, it sell all sorts of things for £1 for example: food, cleaning products, make up, toys, pet accessories etc..)




This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4 minutes a coat). The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. It's a pretty raspberry red with holo sparkles with a sort of jelly finish. Noticed slight tip wear but lasted well otherwise. I like it so much that I bought a few more ;-)
