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 :-)

Essence It's Hot Stuff

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes. I'm feeling a lot better :-)






This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a thermal but I don't think the change is really that dramatic! I found in the first few photos I was quite warm and it was hard to capture the original colour. You can make out the two colours in some of the photos though. I wish it had a better effect! Lasted okay.

On the mend

Sorry I've not been about lately. Had a virus and just starting to feel human again. Can you believe I didn't paint my nails in the last week or so!!!!!!! :-O

Will be back soon though :-)

Kleancolor Melon Green




This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (8-10 minutes a coat). Most of the Kleancolor polishes I've used before have been slow drying! It's a really pretty yellowy green colour with subtle flakies. I know many of you don't like the smell of the Kleancolor polishes. It doesn't bother me, but oddly enough I find it really difficult to wear most perfumes! I had a Chanel (Eau Tendre), both times I wore it I was really, really sick and had a bad headache. Gave it to my friend in the end. It's funny how the body works! Lasted well.

Miss Sporty Jellied Lime Fruit

This was the glitter I put on top of The Blessed Damozel.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). You get good coverage with 1 coat. It's a nice green and white glitter with little holo sparkles. I think it does look nice on the purple. Lasted well.

W7 Pink Shard

This is the glitter polish I put on top of Morgan Taylor Denim Du Jour




This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (about 5 minutes a coat, but it's quicker than I would have expected!). 1 coat gives really good coverage. It's a mixture of different glitters and I think it looks nice on the blue. Lasted well.

Avon Plush Pink



This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The first coat is kinda streaky but the second is fine. I really thought the colour looked more purple than pink! It's pretty and it lasted well.

Technic Jasmine




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). The formula is quick thick but easy to use - not sure if I got a dodgy bottle though! It's a lovely teal-like colour with an amazing gold shimmer. Really nice. Lasted well.

Colour Alike 535(H)

Sun last week could only mean one thing...holo time!




And in the artificial lighting:





This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It's a really pretty holo and it's iridescent too! It looks quite different in the different lighting. One of my male friends said I had rainbow trout on my nails! This one is slightly scented but not very strong at all. Lasted well.
