What's going on!?

Guys..... I have big important news to share.

I'm leaving you on Wednesday for a much nicer place. It's called a holiday, have you heard of it? :P
I'll be away from home for 3 weeks (oh my, 3 whole weeks of sunshine- bring it!) as I jet off to see my father in California for a week and a bit, then we (my Dad, his girlfriend, her son, my brother and myself) jet off to the Bahamas for a week, and then my Dad, brother and I run off to Disney for a couple of days! Yay! :) So while you're all moping around here trying to sniff out a new post, I'll be off doing crazy things.
The chances are, really, that you will see a few posts from me dotted here and there (especially if I decide to tell my Dad about this crazy blog thing, and if I can convince him to buy me a camera for my birthday), but they'll be less about nails and more about what I'll be getting up to! That is, apart from whatever I end up buying while I'm there, there'll be plenty of pics of all that :P
You may find me tweeting more than I am writing blog-posts, so make sure you are definitely following my twitter! @Nail_Parade :) 

Okay, so to finish, there may be a post from me tomorrow so do keep an eye out, and keep checking here in case I do get a chance to blog while I'm away! They won't be fun, spiffy, colour changing posts though, because I can't do that on my phone. *grumpy face*
And, more importantly, have a great Summer!
Stay safe, out of trouble, and please please please- wear suncream!

To finish, in true music-geek style... Don't worry,

That's all from me for now!
Goodbye dears! <3

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 …
