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 :-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It's a gorgeous holo that is slightly iridescent and has a subtle shimmer too! It's really pretty. Lasted well.

China Glaze Glow With The Flow



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a gorgeous barbie pink colour with that neon rubber finish. This one has a really good formula and these CG mini mini bottles are really good, especially the brushes. Lasted well.

Dance Legend Amethyst




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). The brush is really good. It's a lovely texture polish with lovely little sparkles. I thought it looked like crushed crystals lol! It is a texture but not really rough, so that's good. It's really pretty. Lasted well.

China Glaze Violet-Vibes



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. Make sure you have plenty of polish on the brush for good coverage. I was really impressed with this formula and the mini bottle. They are really good. It's a pretty bright purple with a rubber finish. Lasted well.

Ciate Mango Martini



This is okay to use, okay to apply and slow drying (6-7 minutes a coat). I really don't think this colour looks great on me :-| I had expected it to be a bolder orange but it's more peachy in colour. Noticed slight tip wear and a small chip.

China Glaze Daisy Know My Name?



This is okay to use, hard to apply and okay drying (3 minutes a coat). The formula is quite streaky and does require 3 coats and careful brushwork! Make sure you have plenty on the brush for decent coverage. The colour is okay but the formula is really poor. I was a bit fed up with this so I only swatched it.

China Glaze Red-y To Rave



This is easy to use, okay to apply and okay drying time (4 minutes a coat). The first coat is slightly streaky and second is fine. The brush is really good with the "mini-mini bottles" as I call them! They are similar to the OPI minis but I think the brush is a bit better on these as it's slightly bigger. It's a pretty coral neon colour with a kinda rubber finish. Not sure about the red in the name though! I was very impressed with the little bottle! Lasted well.

Deborah Lippmann Bitches Brew



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4 minutes a coat). It's a nice deep red with a subtle shimmer which was quite hard to capture. It doesn't look too brown in other lighting, which is good. The brush is really thin but good to work with. It's also a very good album by Miles Davis :-D Lasted well.

Nails Inc Holland Park

I've not been about for a few days and this is why:

We got a new puppy on Friday and I've been really busy with him. His name is Marlowe and he's a great wee guy. I will try to be about as often as I can. :-)



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (3 minutes a coat). It's a nice bright purple shade with a sort of rubber finish. And it's way better than the OPI Push & Pur-Pull, which was a disappointment. Slight tip wear, but lasted well otherwise.
