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 :-)

Essence - Polka Holga

So this is what I wore for Hallowe'en...yes, yes I know I am a bit late! Better late than never I say ;-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2 minutes a coat). The brush is wide and good and the the formula goes on nicely. It is an amazingly bold orange colour. I put a white and black crackle polish over it to make it even more Hallowe'en like! I do think, though, that the crackle somehow made it appear more red than orange! This lasted really well.

Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 8/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2 
Finish = creamy
Removal = easy
Overall = 9/10
Purchased from = Wilko

  6. Better late than never is a good saying, and this polish looks ideal for Halloween. Also the pumpkin head makes a good addition to the photos.

  7. Wow, that looks fabulous! :) Merry Christmas! :)

  8. That's a lovely shade. So bold I thought it was red, but that just makes it more fun for Halloween.
