Bling It On! Review

One of my most recent purchases of the month, was Nails Inc's Bling It On-Emerald! I fell in love with the polish colour when I saw it on the stand, it really is a beautiful colour.
Average Overall Rating: 9/10
Colour & Effect: 10/10
Durability: 10/10 -Amazing!
Removability: 6/10 without glitter- The colour stains a bit.
                 4/10 with the glitter- The glitter is really hard to take off!

The "Bling It On! Emerald" kit comes with! Queen Victoria Street nail polish, a little bottle of emerald-green coloured "Bling" (glitter), an application tray to avoid mess and savour the sparkle and an adorable sparkly green brush.

Queen Victoria Street polish is the (darker) green you see here (highlight nail is the Queen Victoria Street covered by Nails Inc's Holographic polish)

Now the whole idea with the kit, is that you paint one coat of the Queen Victoria Street polish onto the nail, and then roll the nail around in the glitter which has been poured into the application tray (when wet, of course)
 And then voila! Pretty sparkle for everyone to see! 
Now, let's talk about the bad sides to this very very very pretty effect. Taking it off. Before I bought it, I asked the Nails Inc woman how you would take it off, and her reply was to file off the majority of the glitter before trying to remove the whole thing with strong polish-remover, as in remover containing a lot of acetone. And I have to admit, it is quite hard to remove, but if you're planning on keeping the effect on for quite a while (i.e. Longer than the 2 days that I've been wearing it for) then it is completely worth it! It'll just take a bit of patience and an old nail file (so you don't ruin your favourite one!).
I leave you with one last (slightly blurred) moment of epic green!
Will you be buying the Nails Inc Emerald green kit? What are your thought on it? :)
If you have any questions, just ask away!

Swatch Watch: OPI 'Sprung'


Wooo time got away from me for a couple of weeks. Has it really been so long already? My apologies to any of you who have been eagerly waiting for new swatches (I know I have)! To make it up to you I've got a swatch for you today which, in my opinion, is pretty "in season" right now. I'm talking about the Rose Gold trend that's been going on for a year or two now - who would of known it would become so popular?

Today's nail polish is: OPI 'Sprung'. It sounds like it should be a spring green kinda colour... but nope! This polish is a beautiful rose-gold kind of colour with a perfect amount of shimmer to be classy and sophisticated. Don't believe me? Here it is!

Fact File:
Brand: OPI
Polish Name: Sprung
# of coats: 3 + (applies quite thin)
Finishing Texture: Smooth, shimmer
Cost: £3.10 at the time of writing, on

So I paired this polish with this gel-finish dotty topcoat... thing. That sadly, has no name, and was bought by my roommate…

Avril "Mille et une nuits" #32*

*This post contains an item sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is a nail polish by Avril, called "Mille et une nuits" - No32.

Hello folks!

How are you all doing? How am I doing? Where am I? Who am I? So many questions...

To answer a few... I hope you are doing fine.
Yes, I am fine thank you.
I am in England, once again. For a long while this time.
I am Rachel, as always. And I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of months.

The past 2 weeks I have spent job-searching (with success, yay!), catching up on Suits, and binge-watching Scandal. I want you all to go and do some homework and watch Scandal so I have somebody to talk to about it. Seriously.

Anyway, a few months ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by Avril - a french beauty brand which pride themselves on not testing on animals, and ensuring any of the ingredients used are also not tested on our furry friends. I highly respect this, and think that all companies should follow their …
