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 :-)

Rimmel 270 Life Force

Picked this one up very cheaply from the Bay. It looks awesome in the bottle and even better on the nails. It's an older one and forn. Greeny with a golden subtle shimmer.

Natural light, no sun out.

With flash.

 All above 1 coat!!!!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and 1 coat gives great coverage. It's one of the older ones so the smell is noticeable but not bad and it's slow drying too. That golden shimmer is lovely. Have to say it lasted well and looks good in sunlight (which silly me didn't get pics of!)

8 out of 10.

Technic Gunmetal

Picked this one up a while ago and when I was looking for something to wear, it caught my eye.

In sunlight.

And in the shade.
All above 2 coats.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. This bottle was slightly gloopy but that didn't affect application, not sure if that's the formula or just the one I picked up! It's got a slight greeny shimmer to it. Lasted well and it's lovely. At first it reminded me of Chanel's Black Pearl but it's not quite a match!

7 out of 10. Good for the 99p I paid from Bodycare!

Beauty UK Silmaril

Having tried Elfstone and purchased the other Beauty UK gemstone Posh Polish collection, I decided to try another one. This one is Silmaril, a kinda bronzy goldy colour.

Sparkly goodness!

All in sunlight.

All above 2 coats. Nice and sparkly!!!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's lovely in sunlight. It's smooth and nice. BUT it didn't last well at all compared to Elfstone! Couldn't believe how much it chipped! So wear a top coat with this one.

6.5 out of 10. Nice to look at for sure. Superdrug or their official site.

Nina Ultra Pro Tickle Me Pink

This is such a good brand of polish and such good quality for the price. This is a "pinky" rosy colour with a subtle gold shimmer.

In natural light.

And artificial light.
All above are 2 coats.

This was easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The brush was really good too. It certainly needed 2 coats as 1 coat is too weak. I'm not sure about the name as I don't think it looks pink really, but rosy with that subtle golden shimmer. It did last well and is so cute.

7 out of 10. Got it from Sallys for about £3.50 ish. I'm bad for remembering prices doh!
