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 :-)

All About Nails Let There Be Lime

Haha it's late and I've had too much coffee. Another of these Tesco All About Nails polish. A nice grassy green colour.
Indoors with flash.
And without flash.

This is a good polish for the price - 99p! It's easy to use, easy to apply and very quick drying. All the above are 2 coats, which gave a good finish. It's a nice colour and the price is good also!

7 out of 10 for this! Found in all big Tesco stores.

And just for fun, I put MUA's Purple Crackle on top of it. The results got many comments :-)

I hadn't realised how Halloweeny they looked until someone pointed it out! Just how cool are they ;-)

Avon Star

Another Avon!!! This time a pearly white colour.
Indoors with flash.
And without flash.

All above are 2 coats.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and needed at least 2 coats! VERY slow drying and scuffs easily so a top coat is recommended. It's a nice colour and certainly got a few comments, but I think that might have been because my nails were long at the time, before I started playing bass!

I'd give this one 6 out of 10. I like it and would wear it again with 3 coats and a top coat. Avon shop online or your Avon rep, is where to get it.

Avon Mercury Metal

I saw this one recently in the catalogue and just had to have it. It's silver-tastic.

And without flash.
This one is so nice! Metallic silver, how lovely! All 2 coats.

It's easy to use, easy to apply, good brush and the lid is good to hold. It needs 2 coats for a good finish and is slowwwwwwww drying. It scuffs easily so a top coat is needed.

7 out of 10. Available online or from the Avon reps for under a fiver.

Collection 2000 31 Spangles

I was in the mood for a greeny colour. I hadn't worn a C2000 in a while so it was a close run thing with Spangles and Ninja! Spangles won.
It's a limey yucky green, but it's nice!

Doesn't really look that neon in real life!

A much truer representation of the colour!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and the brush is fairly decent. However it's slightly streaky so you have to be careful when applying it and it defo needs 2 coats at least. It's quick drying - yah! All pictures are of 2 coats.

6 out of 10 for this. It's an okay polish and the colour is okay. Might be right for you. Easy to pick up from supermarkets or chemists (Boots, Superdrug or the likes) for under £2.

Asda George 49 Hoax

This might be the first of many posts with short nails :-( *sniff sniff* I wanted to learn how to play the bass and my husband is teaching me, but said I'll need short nails on my left hand. So I've had to cut them really short, for the love of the bass!

Indoors with flash.

*hehe* I kept my right hand nails long.

Gorgeous purple colour, a must for all purple addicts out there! This is easy to use, easy to apply and has a fairly decent brush. 2 coats are needed as 1 is too streaky. Quick drying, as the bottle states! And surprisingly didn't scuff, like some of the other George's I've used! So no top coat if you are only gonna wear it for a few days.

7 out of 10 for this. Used to be £1 from Asda, but now £1.75 - still a bargain!

Kleancolor 29 Aurora

OMG how cool are the Kleancolor nail polishes? I love them! This is a very pretty glittery polish. I put it on top of the previous post. The pictures are better at explaining than my humble words.

And without flash.

This is another amazing nail polish. It's easy to use, easy to apply and has a great brush. 1 coat is enough on top of a bold colour and it's quick drying (for a Kleancolor :-p). Pretty or what!

A sure fire 8 out of 10. I love it. eBay or American Amazon.

All About Nails Wild Cherry

Yippee Tesco have released a new range of nail polish and it's very cheap :-) All About Nails, I think, is the sister of All About Face. Please correct me if I'm wrong! I picked up a few of them at £1.49, but they are currently selling for 99p! Not bad for 7ml bottles. The colour range is pretty cool too, with colours to suit us all.

First up is a deep cherry red.

Now how gorgeous is that colour? :-) I have to say this was easy to use, easy to apply, 2 coats gave a good finish and it was quick drying. Does need 2 coats though. It certainly lasted well without a top coat. So far this brand has impressed me. Need to try the others and see how they are.

7 out of 10 for this. Most of the big Tesco store have them for 99p currently.
