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 :-)

W7 Twinkle Toes

This is the glitter I put on top of Orly Be Daring!!




This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (5-6 minutes a coat). Just dip the brush in and out a few times to get plenty of glitter on it for good coverage. I think it looks really nice over the purple Orly! Lasted well.

I'd just like to pay tribute to Pavel Srnicek who passed away today aged 47. He was one of my favourite goal keepers :-( RIP.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). This is a nice texture glitter and it's not too rough either! And it's a one coater! Lasted really well.

Sally Hansen Velour




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a lovely purple with a kind of velvet finish. It really does look and feel velvet-like! Noticed tip wear but lasted well otherwise.

Avon Titanium



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). It's a nice textured polish and it's not too rough either. Quite glittery! It's a light-ish brown and I did quite like it. Lasted well.

Barry M Black Grape




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It's a nice dark blue colour and it's very glossy! Lol with the name I kept thinking about Shaun Ryder!!! Didn't stain - so that's good. Slight tip wear though.

Rimmel Love Bug




This is difficult to use, difficult to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It's really streaky and prone to bald patches. The brush is very thick, which is good because I would advise to keep brushstrokes to a minimum for better coverage. It's an okay yellow with a sorta matte chalky finish. Lasted well.
