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 :-)

Avon Alloy

This is another of those new Avon Color Trend polishes. This one is kinda brown and rosy, depending on the light.
With flash.
Artificial light.
And finally natural light.
This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It does looks sort rosy pink in certain lights I think! It lasted well. Nice enough colour.

Nina Ultra Pro Jiggi Pink

This is quite a subtle pink, but pretty!

With flash.

Natural light.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying! Yah. It's fairly weak and I used 2 coats, probably could have done with 3 but I was lazy that day! Good brush and good lid. Lasted well. I think it's more a summer pink than an autumn pink!

Barry M Boots Limited Edition Silver Glitter

Picked this one up a wee while ago. It was free when you spend over £6 I think!

With flash.

Natural light.


This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's not gritty or rough. It's okay as a glittery top coat but not that fussed with it really. Good quality though.

All About Nails Blueberry Pie

This is another of those All About Nails from Tesco. This is a blue polish that looks purple-ish in certain lights.

With flash.

Artificial light.
This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's a cute wee bottle that is cool - lid is comfortable and the brush is pretty good too. Can't believe that is one coat!! Lasted well and it's lovely I think.

Accessorize Boho Nail Wardrobe Grey

This is another from that set I bought a while back. At first glance I thought it was blue-grey but I looks more grey on the nails.

With flash.

Artificial light.







This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. Just because it's a wee bottle with a wee brush, make sure there is plenty on the brush for good coverage of the nail. The brush is nice and easy to use and the lid is good to hold. I'd have to say this was a nice colour and it lasted better than I could have ever hoped for!

Avon Midnight Green

Having picked an Illamasqua (Muse) polish to wear, this arrived putting me in an awkward position regarding the Illamasqua! I didn't want to cheat on it, but I JUST had to wear this one instead! It's one of the fairly new Avon polishes.

With flash.


Artificial light.


This is easy to use, and okay to apply had a tendency to drag - or maybe that's just me? It's fairly quick drying. And lasted okay. It's a lovely shade of green that has a subtle sparkle to it. Kinda reminds me of a forest lol.

Sally Hansen Ruby Rush

I managed to pick up a few cheap Sally Hansen polishes the other day. Thought I'd try this one first!

With flash.
Natural light.






I thought the name really didn't suit the colour, certainly looks purple huh? And then in poor lighting I saw this.

It looks red! Finally haha.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. The first coat dried very fast but the second was a bit longer. The brush is excellent and the lid is nice to hold. It's funny that it looks purple then in poor light is does look red! Odd. Lasted well.
