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)
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! :-)

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.
