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 :-)

Sally Hansen Snappy Sprinkles

I put this on top of: OPI's Dining Al Frisco

This was okay to use, I had to dab the polish on rather than paint the nails. It's very slow drying as well. Dabbing on seemed to do the trick as I managed to get the coverage I wanted. Looks pretty cool on top of the blue.

Easy to use = 6/10
Application =6/10 but easy to dab on
Drying time = 4/10 really slow
Lasted well =N/A as swatched
Coats = dabbed
Finish = sparkly
Removal = easy, but it hadn't fully dried as was still tacky. Tin foils
Overall = 6/10
Purchased from = Fragrance Direct's official site

My Personal Rating = 7/10 even though it was a pain to work with and slow drying, I thought it looked cool!
