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 :-)

Marks & Spencer Crystal



This is easy to use, easy to apply and very, very slow drying. I ended up using the Nubar top coat to speed things up! It's a gorgeous white colour that looks like snow. Lasted really well.

Illamasqua Serenity

This is one of the 'rubber finish' polishes.



This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's a lovely light blue colour. I can see what they mean by 'rubber finish'! Lasted well and really liked this.

Butter London Disco Biscuit



And with the Nubar Top Coat *gasp*


This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's pink with blue speckles in it. I'd say it's slightly textured and a wee bit gritty, though the application of the top coat removes that feeling and makes the nails shiny! Nice enough and lasted well with the top coat on.

Deborah Lippmann It Girl

This is part of the Run The World Girls set and it's awful, bloody awful! I've never felt so disgusted by a nail polish in my whole life! On with the show....



This is easy to use, easy to apply and mega quick drying. It's absolutely horrible. It looks like I had nicotine stains on my nails, not the lovely yellow in the bottle. Why on earth was the nail polish ever created????? I took pictures of this and then removed it. I've tried a few others from the set and been impressed, but not with this. Yuck!

Ruby Wing Sand Dune

I decided to wear another Ruby Wing colour changer as the sun was out. So when I decided to take the pictures after I was happy the polish was dry..... the sun went home :-( To my surprise, the colour changed! Mr Posh didn't seem that impressed that it changed, he thought it would.



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. The first coat was very streaky and I made sure I had plenty on the brush for the second. It's a coral colour in the shade and a sort of deep, dusky rose in the daylight. Was okay, but I don't think the colour excited me that much.
