Nailing Around: McFly!

It's time for a little introduction to a new kind of blogpost- "Nailing Around"
I'll be posting pictures of my nails if I ever do some cool designs to go to certain places (like gigs and concerts and what not) or if I just go anywhere pretty awesome generally :)

So for my first Nailing Around post, I want to introduce you to the band Mcfly!
Definitely my favourite band of all time, hands down, no competition. Me and two of my friends went to see them in April :) April 25th! :D

To celebrate the occasion, I painted and designed some falsies for two of us to wear, featuring the McFly "M" and also the four band member's badge designs.
Here's the fella's badge designs, taken from (copyright all to them).

Here's my design!

Colours used are: Thumb Nail- OPI Russian Navy;  Dougie Nail (Red)- OPI Cha-Ching Cherry; Harry Nail (Orange)- Barry M Gelly Satsuma; Tom Nail (Green)- Barry M Spring Green; Danny Nail (Blue)- Barry M Gelly Watermelon
For the details: The "M" on the thumb is done with Barry M Silver Nail Art Pen, and the other designs are done with Barry M White Nail Art Pen. Now these pens are good, but make sure you give them a good shake and a good 'blot' on paper before drawing on your nails. And make sure that your under colour is dry too, otherwise the pen might drag the colour a bit :)

And now I leave you with more pictures! Yay! :D
(You can click on them to make them bigger if you wanna see better ^^')

Do you like the idea of this design and want to create it yourself? Go ahead! Just send me some of your pictures so I can see your pretty effects! :D Email them to or tweet them to @Nail_Parade

Thanks for reading, see you soon! xxx

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.
