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 :-)

Models Own Disco Inferno

I put this on top of Avon Lavished Blue!

And with the flash:
This is okay to use and okay to apply. Make sure there is plenty on the brush for good coverage. Dip it in and out a few times before applying to the nail. It is really slow drying (at least 10 minutes a coat). It is a pretty cool looking glitter and looks good over the blue! Lasted well.

Dance Legend Chumash

This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (5-6 minutes a coat). You need to shake the bottle every time you paint a nail, this ensures your get good glitter coverage as there will be plenty on the brush. It does apply nice though. Looks pretty funky and gorgeous. Lasted well.

I would say that I was happy with this years calendar. I only got 2 doublers and there were some really nice polishes. I didn't like the design of it though.....poorly thought out as the boxes kept falling out. I preferred the little doors like they did in previous years! :-)

Ciate Day 22 Raincheck

Had to cut the nails really short, as one had ripped again! Not ideal, but these things happen :-|

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It's a nice blue, kind of like jeans blue! And it didn't stain! Slight tip wear, but last well otherwise.

Ciate Day 21 Cupcake Queen

This is a doubler of a doubler! Was bound to happen at some point! From 2012 and 2014.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a lovely pink with a subtle shimmer. The shimmer certainly looks good in the bottle and isn't as obvious on the nail. Noticed slight tip wear. I still think the 2012 version is the best!

Ciate Day 19 Nail Saviour

This is a nail treatment and I didn't review it. I think to get good results you would need to use it for a few weeks. Sounds like a good thing though!
