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 :-)

MeMeMe 72 Loyal

Picked this one up ages ago and lucky dipped it out of the drawer! It's a lovely silver colour.

Natural light.

And in artificial light.

Shiny! All above just 1 coat!

This is easy to use and easy to apply. It's got a good wide brush that's very good. This polish is very quick drying and is lovely! It's metallic and like a foil type polish. It certainly lasted well for 1 coat. Nice.

7 out of 10. I got it from Superdrug for under £5 not sure how much they are now!

Barbara Daly Amethyst

Thought I'd give one of my other Barbara Daly polishes a go after the disappointment of Denim. This is a lovely purple colour, which I got reduced. Check out where they put the sticker!

All in natural light.

And finally artificial light.

All above 2 coats.

This is easy to use and easy to apply. It is certainly better quality than Denim and easier to use for sure. 1st coat dried quickly but the 2nd was a wee bit slower. I'd say it's a purple-mauve colour with a subtle sparkle that needs good light and eye sight to catch. Lasted well.

7 out of 10. Got it reduced from Tesco for £1.50, but I think it's normally £3.

Kleancolor 135 Holo Blue

This one is quite nice, but not what I'd call a holo. Certainly not compared to Nfu.Oh!

Sparkly or what?

All in sunlight.

My poor wee sore finger :-( Just ignore that! All above 2 coats.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying for a Kleancolor. The brush is pretty good and the lid is comfortable to hold while painting the nails. It's quite gritty and I'd say it's more glittery than holo. I think it would look better on top of a bold colour for sure. Lasted well and I like it.

7 out of 10. eBay or Amazon.
