New Polishes, New Swatches, New Sunshine! :D

To start things off... YAY! NO MORE EXAMS! If you still have some to go, then good luck to you my friend!
To celebrate the finishing of exams, and partially cause me and a friend were a little bored, I bought some new nail polish, yay!!

From left to right: Barry M Confetti Polish in Bubblegum, Barry M "SNP" (Sequin Nail Polish) in Black, Barry M "SLE" (Summer Limited Edition) A, Barry M "SLE" B, Barry M Gelly Mango, Barry M Gelly Passion Fruit, Rimmel London Salon Pro with Lycra Kate in Disco Fever.

The two Summer Limited edition ones you see there are super amazing, they're slightly neon but they're kinda translucent really, so I'm thinking about experimenting with using them over different shades of that colour, and I shall let you know how that goes! Otherwise, put a white base down underneath the colour if you want it a bit more vibrant! :)
The Gelly polishes, as always, are amazing! The colours are b-e-a-utiful!
And I'm yet to try the rest still but since they're all new colours I'll be sure to swatch them up for you soon!

Onto some swatchy goodness! I have two swatches for you today! Yippee! 
Barry M Spring Green~

 As you can see, it's super duper, mega shiny! This is without a top coat too! :O

And I also have a nice OPI swatch for you today! OPI Russian Navy! I love love love this shade, but the polish has gone all gloopy, so I'm going to have to go put it into some boiling water for a bit! :O

Here we go anyway, due to the gloopiness it's a little messy and so I didn't take many pictures, sorry!

Yay! Blue! Pretty blue! It's so pretty, I love it so much!!

And finally, we have something else new for England... SUNSHINE!
It's come at the perfect time too, my exams are finished, so I get more time to do things and chill in the garden and sit in the sun and what not! Here's a few pictures of yesterday, I had a little walk in the forest :) Nothing naily here cause they were looking a little bit shabby, but just for your own amusement you can have some pictures of trees and sun shine and there were some of me but then blogger squished my face! :O So never mind!

Enjoy the sunshine guy! Thanks for reading! <3 And Good Luck for your exams if anybody still has any? :D

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 …
