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 :-)

Sparitual Hugs



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a pretty dark purple, husband thought it was similar to Vendetta by Chanel! It has a nice shimmer that you can make out in the second photo in the bottle, this wasn't so easy to capture on the nail! It's a one coater as well! Lasted well.

Dance Legend Termo Shine 182



This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (10 minutes a coat). The formula is quite thick and I'm not sure if it's because I got it second hand. I know the Mortal Kombat Collection I bought new and they are quick drying. It's a really nice dark purple when cold and a lovely magenta when warm. Lasted well.

Revlon Wild Strawberry



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. It's a really gorgeous colour with a subtle shimmer, you can just about see it in the bottle photo. I was confused about the name, I've never seen a strawberry this colour before!! Lasted really well.

China Glaze DJ Blue My Mind



And with UV light:



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It's a nice enough blue. These bottles are really good but make sure you have plenty of polish on the brush for good coverage. Hannah at The Makeup Junkie's Diary had asked if the collection glows under a black light (UV), so I ordered one to try it out! I think it looks pretty funky actually. I will try it with the other colours too and make a post about them! Lasted well.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). This is an older one with the black label so it was slightly smelly but nothing major. Formula was really good. Lasted well and husband loved it :-D
