So I decided that I was going to try and start a system of using up my nail polish by using them in alphabetical order... (I'm crazy...)
And then every time I use one, I can buy a new one, yay! But only when I have to throw one out cause it's gone gross or has ran out (boo D:) although, this will only start when I have an good round number of polishes.

Which means it's spreadsheet time-yay! So I get to write out all of the colours I have, brand, shade, effect, etc. and I figured the easiest way to do this was to shove them all in a bag and start randomly.
This was a good idea, except using a superdrug carrier bag-not so much of a good idea. Wow, these things are heavy! Like heavier than the pile of school books I'm using at the minute! The carrier bag nearly broke-just look at this!

I swear this is heavier than around 75% of the tents we use at scouts- and some of those are pretty dang heavy.
My arm hurts now haha, so I'm off to go and write them into the spreadsheet-wish me luck, it might take a while!

I'll also make the spreadsheet into a list to pop on a page on here at some point this week so if there's ever any colours you aren't sure about and might want to see in swatch form then I can pop a picture on or send one to you!

How many polishes do you own!? I'd love to know-leave a comment!

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 …
