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 :-)

China Glaze Tongue & Chic



This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's quite a thick polish so one coat did the trick. It's a lovely green and looks quite Christmassy. Lasted really well. Gorgeous!

China Glaze Whirled Away

I popped this on top of Marks & Spencer Duck Egg.



This is okay to use, it more like dabbing on than painting the nails. I found it to be fairly slow drying too, so quick drying top coat next time! I think it looks fabby on the opal green colour. It lasted okay, but I was sadly tempted to pick the bits off lol.

China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans



I ordered the Autumn Nights Collection from America and this one arrived injured! I lost about half the bottle in transit. The formula was gloopy and okay to work with. I would assume an uninjured bottle would be easier to work with!!

It was okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying. It's a gorgeous blue colour that knocked me out! Lasted well.

OPI Gone Gonzo

I put this on top of OPI's First Date At The Golden Gate



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. You get really good coverage with one coat and it looks good on top of the red. Lasted really well!
