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 :-)

Kiko - Cherry Cake (Sicilian Notes)


This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous red that has slight orange undertones. It is also a one coater! So good for just 1 coat! Got slight tip wear but not a lot.

Primark - Golden (mini)


This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (5-6 minutes a coat). The brush is very good for a mini bottle. It looks okay with 2 coats and could be used as a topper as well, with one coat. It is nice enough, but not really my colour. Lasted well.

Barry M - Iced Latte

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It isn't streaky and applied nicely. It is a very light nude brown with yellow undertones. I think it is yellow enough for me to like haha! Lasted really well.

Avon - Eclipse

Last photo indoor lighting, all others in the sunshine!

This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). The formula is kinda thick but okay to apply. It is a nice dark holo polish, it looks slightly darken green in some photos and black in others! The holo effect is okay and looks pretty decent indoors too in bright lighting! Lasted okay.

Kiko - Golden Champagne (Holographic)

Last photo indoor lighting all others in the sunshine.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (5-6 minutes a coat). I think it is a lovely golden holo polish and looks great in both sunlight and indoor lighting. It lasted very well.

NYX - City Lights

I put this on top of the last post!

This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (4-5 minutes a coat). The glitter applied okay, but make sure you have plenty on the brush. I think it looks nice over the orange. Lasted well.
