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 :-)

OPI It's All San Andreas's Fault

I finally received the San Francisco collection, had been saving up for it. I'm hoping to work my way through them all! First up one of the liquid sand polishes and it's brown!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and mega quick drying. I think it looks like chocolate, but wasn't tempted to lick my nails!! Lasted really well and it's alright for a brown. Even Mr Posh liked it *gasp*. My only complaint is the name, "S'S" really annoys me, I prefer S'.
