Nails as good as new!

First of all, wow. Just wow. That was completely unexpected!
I've just been doing my pre-colour nail prep to find that my Mam's added a new little bottle into the bag-now it looks really shabby and poor, but wow, it works a dream!
Introducing... Boots Salon Nail Care Cuticle Remover!
Here's the little tube it comes in! :)

It comes in this cute litte box (as shown on for a mere £4.20

And I am still in shock at how much it worked! I think my biggest mistake here is not taking before and after pictures, but before I had scabby little cuticles at the bottom of my nails, and now they're completely clear! All you need to do is follow the very simple instructions that come on the back of the tube:
1. Massage into the cuticle area- the liquid is small and white and contains little grainy pieces, though I'm not entirely sure what these are
2. Leave for about a minute
3. Grab an orange stick, wrapped in cotton wool (though I admit, I didn't wrap it in cotton wool and just made sure I was careful not to scratch too hard around my skin) and scrape away the excess cuticle (that should be pretty dead and bedraggled by now!)
4. Go wash your hands in nice warm, soapy water to make sure you get all of the cream that's left on :)

Personally, I'd finish it up with a bit of moisturiser, or go back to doing what I would normally do in my nail-prep. I'd probably do this instead of using cuticle oil.
It's recommended you do this once a week to keep them looking pretty and perfect! ^^ Though, I may lack to once every two weeks simply because I don't mind having a little bit of my cuticle showing and I'm just lazy really.
Now why are you still here? Go get some now!

Do you have any favourite nail care products? I'd love to hear what they are and why they work so well for you-comment below!


  1. OOH i will have to try it !

    1. Yes, yes you will! If you're outside of the UK/in a country without Boots stores then I'm sure a national drug store/beauty retailer/department store will have a similar equivalent :)

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

Finally, the time has come for the ever-promised "Barry M Gelly Polishes Review & Swatch" Post! YAY! Now, now, settle down, settle down, and prepare yourself for an image-heavy post!

Okay, so that picture isn't too great. But there's the colours that between us (Me and Rhian) have in the Gelly range. We're only missing "Grapefruit" I think...

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 …
