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. Welcome to my little world :-)

Miss Beauty - Neon Green

 


This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (3-4 mintues a coat).  The brush is good and medium sized. Sadly the formula is quite streaky so needs 3 coats for good coverage and a nice finish. I wouldn't say it was "neon" as such but I do like it and it is bold! Lasted really well. This polish, for me, falls in the Hallowe'en category haha!

Colour Alike - 108

 



Last photo in the sunshine at the pond. All others indoor lighting.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The brush is good and the formula goes on nicely. The brush is medium sized. It is a nude holo. I am not normally a fan of nudes but love holos! So dilemma for me haha! It has a nice holo effect and the colour grew on me. I doubt I would wear this if it wasn't a holo though. Lasted really well.

Kiko - Blue Planet (Ocean Feel Collection)

 


This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The brush is really good and wide. The formula is okay, slightly patchy on the 1st coat but builds up nicely on the 2nd. It is a nice blue with white glitter! At first I thought the glitters were purple, but closer inspection revealed they are white! This lasted really well.

Marks & Spencer - Gold

 



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). The brush is small but good and the formula goes on nicely. This is an older polish that I got about 10 years ago in a set of 3. I have already blogged one and will get around to doing the other. It is a lovely sparkling gold. Lasted well.
