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 :-)

Lacura Beauty Mirror Shine Bronze

Aldi were selling some nail polishes before Christmas so I picked up a few!

This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (3 minutes a coat). It is very prone to brushstrokes so careful application is needed! It's a nice enough polish and the husband thinks it looks kinda pearl-like! Lasted well.

Revlon Frankly Scarlet


With flash to show off shimmer!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (3 minutes a coat). It's a gorgeous red with a pretty shimmer. You can just about see the shimmer in the normal photos but the flash one shows it off nicely! Noticed slight tip wear but lasted well otherwise.

Make Up Gallery Silver Storm

Happy New Year to everyone :-D
This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). I would say it was still quite tacky and got dents after a half hour. The brush is quite thick but okay to use, but be careful of painting as this can be prone to brushstrokes. I must admit I was in a hurry when I used this and due to the dents I took it off! So no idea if it lasted well as only swatched!
