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 :)

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.
