Welcome to my blog and NOTD Collection 2000 BMX Bandit

Welcome to my first post!

I decided to start a blog after reading all the amazing nail blogs out there. My blog will be mostly nail polish related, hence the nailish and I ramble a lot, so I came up with the name nailish ramblings!

I'm currently studying for a PhD so spend a lot of my time writing at the computer and thought this might be a welcome distraction. I also hoped that putting NOTD pictures out here may improve my application! As I'm based in Ireland, I'll also post about some UK/European brands that I don't see swatched a lot online, which nicely brings me to my NOTD.

This is a collection 2000 polish called BMX bandit. It's a blurple cream polish. First up a picture with Flash (we haven't had sun in days so has to be indoor pictures I'm afraid)

Now, with no flash.

The no flash picture is a little more colour accurate, but in real life the colour is a little more purple but not much more. The application of this wasn't great, although when I got finished I realised I should have thinned it and maybe that would of helped. There's one coat of CND Stickey, two coats polish and one coat Seche vite. The polish was very pigmented and might have been a one coater if I had thought to thin it before hand. The wear on this polish was very good, in fact the pictures were taken on the fifth day because I'd lost the charger for my camera, and there is minimal tipwear and obvious regrowth at the cuticle.

All in all, a great little polish for around 3 euro.

I'd love to hear any comments, if anyone has any!


  1. I have never tried collection 2000 nail polish but I like this colour so it's on the list.

  2. I got it in boots on 3 for 2 and think it worked about 6 or 7 euro for the three, happy hunting!
