Scotland
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 :-)

Orly Crawford's Wine

Thanks to everyone for your kind wishes. I'm feeling a lot better now :-)




And guest appearance..I don't think my wee boy would suit this polish!:



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes). It's a mini bottle and really easy to use, the brush is excellent and the lid is really comfortable to hold. While taking photos one of my cats jumped up, I think he wanted some air time! It's a gorgeous red and so shiny. My husband was very keen on this! Lasted really well.

Dance Legend Between Angels

Sorry I've not been posting lately. I've been feeling keech, as we Scots would say ;-)



This is a cool glow in the dark polish!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 2 minutes a coat). It's a pretty coral pink with a gorgeous golden shimmer. AND it glows in the dark! It looks amazing and I could not stop looking at it in the dark! Lasted really well.

Jade Magia



This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (over 5 minutes a coat). I used this with a normal base coat and all the holo goodness shows! It's really gorgeous. Noticed slight tip wear but lasted well otherwise.

a-England The Blessed Damozel



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). This is an absolutely stunning purple! It really is gorgeous and it's a one coater! It is very similar to Queen of Scots, the only exception being this doesn't stain! Lasted well.

Orly Tropical Pop



This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). The formula is slightly awkward to use, quite streaky and does drag on the first coat. It's okay on the second coat though. It's really bright and bold! Lasted well.

Dance Legend Rain



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). This is a gorgeous thermal polish with iridescent flakies! It's black when cold and purple when warm. It does dry matte, but I like it matte. Very good changer. Slight tip wear but lasted well otherwise.

Ciate Naughty Or Nice

Sorry for the lack of posts I've been getting really bad headaches. I've been put on meds and they are making me really tired :-(



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It's a pretty multi coloured glittery polish. I wanted to show it solo, but I'm sure it would look great as a topper too! Noticed slight tip wear, but last well otherwise.
