About Me

My photo
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. I have also started wildlife photography, which I enjoy very much. Welcome to my little world :-)

Marks & Spencer Emerald

Another of those winners from M&S from their £3 range! A dark green one this time.

Indoors with flash.

All 2 coats. At first glance I thought it was very similar to Deborah Lippmann's Don't Tell Mama but it's not that close really.

It's easy to use, easy to apply, easy to hold and the brush is top notch. 2 coats are required though and give a good finish. It certainly lasted well, had it on for 4 days (not like me)!!! In very good light, it certainly has very subtle specks of glitter.

£3 from M&S shops, usually the bigger ones. 8 out of 10 from this polish.

Kleancolor 94 Holo Chrome

Another fabby Kleancolor! Purple, glittery and holo - what more could I ask for??
Glittery or what!
All indoors with flash.

Holo-tastic! And only 2 coats ;-)

This is easy to apply, easy to use and the brush is super. It does need two coats though. Slow drying to a rough, but good finish. Very sparkly! Easy to remove with tin foil, so better buy a roll of it! It got an unbelievable amount of comments.

8 out of 10. I absolutely love this nail polish. eBay is where I found this winner.

Kleancolor 198 Bite Me

Yet another!!! This time a glittery red.

How lovely!
Indoors with flash.

1 coat, but could have done with 2!
Indoors without flash.

Another winner methinks! This is easy to apply and easy to hold. They really have good brushes and lids these Kleancolors! Again, like all previous posts, slow drying! But hey I don't mind. It lasted well and was easy to remove, but 2 coats are needed. Glittery tastic and Christmas tastic too!

7 out of 10 for this, such a good polish. eBay and Amazon America.

Kleancolor 157 Metallic White

This one is a frosty white, almost silver! Oh how I love the Kleancolor polishes!

And in natural light.

Just how pretty is that colour! All the above are two coats. It was easy to apply, easy to use and has a good brush. Slow drying like always! And it lasted well. Good finish. BUT it's quite tricky to remove, get the tin foil out girls!

Another winner from Kleancolor! 7 out of 10 and eBay for purchases!

Avon Pink Radiance

Another of those Avon nail polishes. I picked this one up for £2.50 from an Avon Rep.
A pinky shimmer colour!
All indoors with flash.

And my right hand with a pretty little butterfly sticker.
All the above are 1 coat! Yikes 1 coat city.

This is a lovely colour. It's easy to use, easy to apply and the brush is really good. It's got a good formula and 1 coats gives a good finish. It is also quick drying and lasted well.

7 out of 10. If you can't get it from a Rep, it's easy enough to pick up online!

Kleancolor 202 Party Fever

Yikes how many Kleancolor polishes can one girl have ;-) Up next we have a glittery Lippmann-esque polish.

Glittery or what!
Indoors with flash

And without flash.

And finally in natural light.

It's a very pretty nail polish, but isn't ideal for solo. Will need to try it with a red or a blue next time. All the above are 2 coats and were a pest to get off. Took about 5 minutes!!!!

It's easy to apply, easy to use and subtle (see above better as a top!). Again like all Kleancolor polishes, took a wee while to dry. No complaints apart from that!

7 out of 10 for this. eBay as always with these.

Kleancolor 225 Gorgeous Surprise

Yet another Kleancolor! I do like these polishes, they sure do rock :-) and this one is no exception!

Can you see that blue shimmer? Wow!
All in natural light.

And lastly, one indoors with flash.

Gorgeous indeed, well named! I love this polish, it's so pretty. It's easy to use, easy to apply and the brush rocks! All are 2 coats. My one issue is it does take a while to dry, so be patient, it's worth it. Lasted well without a top coat, good quality. This one is slightly iridescent too :-D

A possible top 10 favourite! 8 out of 10 for this gem. eBay, people, eBay.
