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 :-)

Sally Hansen Lava

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying - about 5 minutes a coat. Some nails seemed to dry quicker than others - this confused me as the coats were the same thickness! The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. It's a lovely iridescent colour, flashes of orange and pink can been seen. Lasted well.

    2. I think these must be my ridges and also very visible nail tips...

  8. This is gorgeous.
    Somehow it reminds me a bit to Orly Brush It On. So may be the Sally Hansen could be used as an effect topper as well?

    Kind regards,
    Elena

  11. How did you manage with just two coats? I needed at least three to have such coverage?
    The result is really great - I got Lava and I love it, but it looks even better on you!
