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 :-)

Flormar Duo 2X Chrome DC02

This is another of those Flormar polishes!






This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. The brush is very good making painting the nails easy. It's gold and green but the iridescent nature of the polish is quite subtle. You can make out the colours in some of the pictures! It does look very obvious in the bottle though! It kinda reminded me of this polish link ;-). Lasted well!

Perfect Holographic H3

The sun was out in Scotland so it was Holo Time in my household! Yah!





ONCE YOU HAVE GIVEN THE BOTTLE A GOOD SHAKE, it's easy to use, easy to apply and really quick drying. The holo particles settle at the bottom and you need to vigorously shake for a few minutes! The sticker in the top pic says "Shake well before use" they ain't joking! The lid is comfortable to hold and the brush is small but easy to manage. It's gorgeous and lasted okay. Used NFU Oh Aqua as the base coat.

Rimmel Sherbet Sweetheart

I went into Superdrug last week to check out the new Barry M range, they had sold out :-( And then I spied new textured Rimmels - ahhhhhhh. They have 5, this is the first one I picked to wear.




This is easy to use and easy to apply. The brush is wide but really easy to manage and it's very quick drying. It's quite sparkly! Lasted really well.

All About Nails Southseas





This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's a nice light green with a subtle shimmer to it. The shimmer can been seen, above the watermark, in the second picture. It doesn't really translate well to the nail but can be made out in the last picture, just about lol! Lasted really well.

Barry M Pearl

This is another of those new Barry M silk polishes. Wow!




This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying time. Certainly quicker than Blossom. It was quite streaky on the first coat but the second was fine. It's really pretty I think :-) Lasted really well.

Maybelline Lava Shimmer

This one is quite old but I picked it up fairly recently, within the last 2 years certainly!

MUA Starfish

I'm feeling a lot better, nearly human. The sun is out in Scotland and I'm over the worst of my cold! Yah. Long may it continue and I can dig out the holos!




This is okay to use and okay to apply. The brush and lid are annoying at first, but you will get used to them. It's quite slow drying too. But boy it is a lovely pinky colour. It has little bits of glitter and an almost blue shimmer to it as well. Lasted really well too.

Barry M Blossom

Barry M have recently released a set of satin finish nail polishes. I managed to pick up a few in Tesco last week.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and very slow drying. The first coat is quite thin and streaky but the 2nd is fine and gives a good finish, just be careful with the brush strokes or they'll show. This is a very pretty polish and even Mr Economy like it! Lasted well.
