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!

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 …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
