Today's the day...!

Well, yesterday was the day really!
Haha, I had a really good day, and it was just fun in general, so here's a little pinch of what happened!
First of all, in the morning I did my nails, of course ;)

I'd also took lots of polish into school cause someone wanted to borrow some but didn't specify a colour :) And somebody else wanted me to do their nails too, so I also grabbed my strengthener and buffer/shiner tool as well!
I ended up doing like 4 sets of nails (including my own), and it looked like a mini nail salon in the dinner hall at school-even the dinner ladies came over and started asking if I would do their nails, hahaha! 
Here's Rhian (aka Bonjour Beauty)'s nails (before clean up!)

And Beth's dazzling gold ones

(God help her when she tries to remove that though!)

And then all of ours together!
I didn't take a picture of the other nails I did (though I should have!)

Whilst doing people's nails and just generally yesterday we also discussed weddings. And, of course, mine is already planned mostly! The general theme would be like either lion king or sea-themed, most likely the latter cause I love blue and it would probably be a little easier ;) So at the reception there'd be like bubbles and stuff but the first dance has got to be "Can you feel the love tonight" :) Anyway, I have my dresses and cake all planned out! And everyone thinks I'm crazy but I'm just so excited!

Then the bridesmaids would wear this (in this colour) and I'll have a bracelet or something to match the colour :)

And then for the evening time, we'd all wear this dress! Bridesmaids in the green and me in the blue! :)

Now... Just to sort the rings and the veil and venue and guests... And of course, the guy! Haha, anyone else have any wedding plans, or is it just crazy little 16-year old me? :3

Also, most importantly, yesterday was the day that Animal Crossing New Leaf came out! It's such an amazing game, I'd been excited about it for weeks before! :)
(I'm not biting it haha, I was just super excited! I'd also like to think I don't look this weird, or this tired on a daily basis!)
If anybody else has it feel free to email me ( or DM me on Twitter @Nail_Parade your friend code and I'll reply back with mine! I'd love to see everyone else's towns!

And I think that's it! It was such a good day! :D 

That's all for now! See you tomorrow, where I'll probably do another Challenge Day!

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 …
