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 :-)

Primark - Galactic

 



This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3 minutes a coat). The brush is really good for a mini bottle too! The colour is gorgeous and it has a slight shimmer. This lasted really well too and I think it is gorgeous. You may notice a few cat hairs on the nails, one of my cats was walking all over my table while I was painting and a few hairs must have landed on my nails!

Kiko - Ravishing Ruby (Holiday Gems)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy Holidays :-D



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (5-6 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous red that required only 1 coat! Has anyone else used this as I was sure it was slightly scented when I was painting! I didn't noticed a scent when it dried though! It lasted well and it looks super amazing.

Maybelline - Marshmallow

 


This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a nice pearly colour but sadly prone to brush strokes! It think it is nice enough, but sure there are better quality pearly polishes out there. It did lasted okay.

Primark - Evergreen

 



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1 minute a coat). It is a mini bottle but the brush is really, really good. It is a nice green and I really like it. I did use a top coat with it, but only on 3 fingers: index, middle and pinkie....it lasted well with and without the top coat.
