Shades: Neon

Today's nails are bright and happy and ready to part-ay! :D Wahoo!
So today I have used:
OPI Nail Laquer in Alpine Snow as an under-neon coat just to brighten up the colours ^^
Barry M's Summer Limited Edition in A (neon pink)
Barry M's Summer Limited Edition in B (neon green)
Rimmel London's Lasting Finish in Sunshine (yellow)

So for the two Barry M Neon paints, I used the OPI white underneath just to give them a brightness boost cause when I tried putting them straight on my nail they weren't very colourful even after like 3 coats ^^; so the white really does bring it out nicely! :D
You can pick up the Barry M Summer Limited Editions from Superdrug for free when you spend £6 or more on Barry M Cosmetics, or you can purchase them for £3.99 a bottle :)

Rimmel London Sunshine
Note: Neon Colour can dye your fingernails pretty badly, so make sure you use a clear base coat, and a white coat if you want them nice and bright!

Also, I snapped a nail today *cries* It was terrible too, you see my index finger up there? Yeah, that one. And now it's remarkably smaller than the rest. *huff*
Do you hate it too when you break a nail?

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 …
