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 :-)

Stargazer 129 Black

On this very sad St Andrew's Day in Scotland it only seems fitting to post a black colour. My thoughts are with everyone involved and beyond. :-(


This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. It's quite old, maybe about 10 years or so but still in good condition. Lol it was the first black polish I ever owned.

All About Nails Emerald

The name of this totally confuses me, you'll see why.....

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying wise. It's a lovey black/charcoal colour, not emerald!!!! It has a subtle sparkle to it. Lasted well and it's cool.

MeMeMe 80 Impulsive

It seems like forever since I last wore a MeMeMe polish. Picked this one.
This is okay to use, okay to apply and fairly quick drying. The brush in these newer bottles is huge and it's okay to work with on the whole nail. The first coat was quite streaky but the second was okay as it was thicker. It's a mega bright acid greeny yellow colour. Lasted well.

Technic Turkish Sea

As promised, here is the colour I had to transfer into empty bottles.
The lid snapped from the brush so I had to transfer this into an empty bottle I bought from eBay. The bottles themselves are easy to use, the brush is pretty good and they are easy to work with. The polish was okay drying time wise. It's a gorgeous blue colour! Lasted well.

Empty Bottles

I recently had a minor accident with a Technic polish, that I'll post about next. I didn't have any empty bottles so I thought it was about time I ordered some!
These bottle are pretty good. They are only 5mls though, but that will do me. It's very easy to pour into them. The brush has some gunk on it, but you just need to flick it off before use. I was very pleased with these and highly recommend having empty bottles for emergencies!!

Here's a link to them, from eBay: empty bottles

8/10 for sure!

Technic Christmas Cracker

I put this on top of Siona Island.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. You get good coverage with 1 coat. It's a lovely red glitter and looks cool on the green. Christmassy or what! Lasted well.
