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 :-)

W7 Blue Debris

Oh new W7 polishes always excite me! The new range is pretty cool - glitters and flakies. This is the first one I decided to wear and I put it on top of Marks & Spencer Lacquer Red.
This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. You get quite good coverage with 1 coat and it's easy to paint the nails. I think it looks pretty cool on the red! Lasted well.

Stargazer 106 Purple

This is an oldie!

Despite being old this is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying! It's still in good condition after all these years. I think I picked up in the early 2000s and have no idea where from! It is an absolutely gorgeous colour and lasted well.

Marks & Spencer Duck Egg

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's an opal minty colour with a slight shimmer, lol almost iridescent! You can just about make it out in the last picture. I used 3 coats: 2 thin ones and the final was a thick coat. Lasted really well and it's so pretty!

Asda George 61 Flamingo

This is okay to use and okay to apply. The first coat is very streaky and patchy but the second coat is fine. It's very quick drying as the polish is matte and mattes usually dry quickly! Prone to slight scuffing. Lovely colour tho.
