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 :-)

a-England Merlin

This is glitter topper I put on Deceit from the other blog!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 2 minutes for a coat). I think it looks gorgeous over the black. One thing I would say about it is the smell, it was slightly stinky - something I hadn't noticed before in any of the a-England polishes I've used :-| Lasted really well.

Chanel 593 Rose Moire



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (about 3 minutes for each coat). It's a nice rosey pink colour - but it's not really my kinda colour. I was talking to the husband about it and he was quite surprised I bought this one as it's not my thing! It's a great quality polish and it lasted well.

Revlon Chroma Chameleon Rose Gold

Ahh look at the time! Just after 10pm and I've been busy all day!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 1.5 min for each coat). It's quite subtle iridescent wise, I had hoped for a stronger effect when I saw the bottle. It doesn't look too bad in the last photo - but it rarely looked like this in real life. Was quite disappointed that it wasn't stronger. That aside, it is a nice golden colour, with very slight green. Lasted well.

OPI Divine Swine

This is the glitter top I put on the Inglot polish from the last post. It's from the first set of the Muppets Collection way back when!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 1.5 mins for 1 coat). You get really good coverage with one coat. I think it looks really nice on top of the blue :-) I only photographed this so no idea if it lasted long!

Butter London Gobsmacked



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 1 min for each coat). It's black and sparkly and very like a textured polishes. It's not too rough - kinda similar texture to the Rimmel Sweetie Crush collection (on the other blog). It also looks kinda greyish and pewter in some lights. I think it's quite nice and it lasted well :-)

Nails Inc Emerald Street



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 3 mins for 1 coat). It's a nice shade of green - I do like this green colour. The brush was good and the lid is okay to hold. You'll get used to it if you struggle at first! I noticed slight scuffing after a few hours :-| but no chipping. It was one coat - so I think that's maybe why. I've noticed 1 coaters tend to scuff more than 2 coaters!

Ciate She's Eclectic

I purchased this a few days ago and when it arrived I just had to wear it. Now don't be fooled by the internet or google because they would lead you to believe this is called "She's Electric" which it isn't! That's a song by Oasis - now it's going through my head lol!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying ( a few minutes between coats). It's purple with a blue shimmer to it. From the bottle I thought it would be more iridescent - I think I'm getting too used to the Dance Legends! The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. Lasted well.
