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 :-)

Home Bargains Born To Sparkle Set - Nails On Fleek

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a nice purple/pink iridescent shimmery polish. Looks really good on the darker colour than the light! And pretty cool solo too. Pinks, purples and peaches can be seen. Gorgeous. Lasted really well.

Kiko - 490 Pearly Salamander Red

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (4 minutes a coat). It is a nice coral red-orange colour with a subtle shimmer. I'd say more orange than red - but I don't name polishes! It is nice and lasted well.

All About Nails - Caribbean Coconut

This is easy to use, easy to apply and slowish drying (6-7 minutes a coat). It is a very pale colour and sheer too! It is a light creamy colour, fancied something light on, but this is too sheer for me and shows all the imperfections of my nails - just look at those ridges yikes! Lasted well.
