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 :-)

Colour Alike 608 Hot Red


This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). Like all CA polishes, it dries and is slightly scented - kind of like sweeties! It's a gorgeous bold neon. I would say it is more a coral colour than red - but I still like it a lot. Lasted well.

Seventeen Foil Fusion Pink


This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It is slightly brush strokey so plenty on the brush for a decent finish. It is a pretty colour and lasted well. One coater and I think this would be a great polish for stamping!

Rimmel Cheeky Chap


This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (3 minutes a coat). Make sure there is plenty polish on the brush or you will get the crackle/shatter effect!! So thick coats are the way forward with this polish. It is a nice enough chalky matte polish. Noticed slight tip wear, but last well otherwise.

Technic Ice Cream Ella

I put this on top of Morgan Taylor Cruisin' The Boulevard.




This is okay to use, okay to apply and slow drying (5-6 minutes). You need to dip the brush in and out a few times to get plenty glitter on the it. This does give good coverage with 1 coat. I think it looks nice on the red. Lasted well.
