Revlon Moon Candy

Hello everybody!
One (or two...) of my recent purchases have been of Revlon's Nail Art Moon-Candy in the colours "Orbit" and "Meteor".

Average Overall Rating: 7/10
Colour & Effect: 10/10
Durability: 4/10 -Actually quite poor
Removability: 7/10 -It removes quite easily considering the glitter flakes




Orbit (On highlight nail)
Meteor
They're actually really nice polishes once you get them on the nail- a pretty deep base colour with the holographic glitter flakes in the top coat that give off a glowing appearance. 

I really do love the colours-they capture the "space" element that i think Revlon were looking for, and really look amazing-plus there's nothing else out there in the market (that I know of anyway...) unless you want to buy completely separate and probably not matched colours! I do, however, have a few issues with the polish (though, the amazing finish does make up for them!).
Issue Number 1! As one of those "Oh it's midnight, I think I'll do my nails" kind of people, I found the base coat to lack the one-coat power that I like. Even the two-coat power for some nails (especially the thumbs), so this was a little bit of a downside for me, but it's fine, I can deal with it!
Issue Number 2! The polish has chipped away at the tip of my nail after not even 24 hours. I find this a little odd as I have never had this happen to me with any other polish before, even a different Revlon polish! You can see in the images above how there's a little space in some of the nails between the edge of my nail and the nail polish (images were took after around 20/21 hours of wear, and considering I was asleep around 7 hours of that time too). It was really weird. I'll re-apply this some time in a week or so and let you guys know if it's any different, maybe it was just me!
Issue Number 3! The flakes kind of lifted up a little... You see those little holographic glitter-flakes? Well after applying them I noticed that there was one on my little finger near the cuticle-edge that was folded upright a little bit. It was a bit strange and unexpected, as I've never known any glitter to do this at all, so I got a normal top coat to brush over the top, which seemed to fix it a bit. So I recommend that if you do get this polish then go over the glitter coat with a top coat, just to secure the flakes. Though, the top coat obviously didn't keep the ends from chipping (still puzzled on this...).


Anyway, I think that's it! I've seen a few bloggers complaining that the flakes don't spread equally and that the base coat takes a while to dry enough to put the glitter on, but honestly, I think if you apply the base coat in quite thin layers, you shouldn't have a drying problem, and I found no problems with the glitter flakes, though I did end up applying two coats because I just got dazed in the sparkle!
So, enjoy your Revlon Moon Dust (I'm assuming you'll go and pick some up, cause it looks so amazing!). Thanks for reading-don't forget to subscribe/follow and leave a comment below! :-)

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'

Greetings!

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 tnbl.co.uk



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 …
