Liebster Award!

I was nominated for the Liebster award by HelloEmski :D (Click the link!) It was such a surprise for it, and I had no idea what it was either haha! But yay, thank you Emski! :D

1) You link back to the person who nominated you
2) You answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the person who nominated you
3) You pick 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to nominate
4) You ask 11 questions for your nominees to answer
5) You go to each nominated person's blog and let them know you've done the post


1) What made you start blogging?
Me and my friend Rhian had contemplated before that we should get blogs, as she's obsessed with make-up and I'm obsessed with nail polish. XD The contemplation first happened in sixth form one day during a 'free' period and we just started talking about how cool it would be and then realised that we could make one together, or make sister-blogs. So then one Friday night I was super bored and we both decided to set them up :)

2) You can only eat one food for the rest of your life, which food is it?
I'm going to have to go for..... Sweetcorn! Mmm, sweetcorn!

3) Favourite place to shop for fashion/beauty things?
For clothes and stuff, New Look :) Definitely New Look! And for make-up/nail polish, Superdrug is definitely cheapest and has the best variety, but I don't like their points system so I think I'll have to go with Boots :D

4) What post would you like to do that you haven't already done?
A post reviewing Barry M Gelly polishes! It's on the way guys, I promise!

5) A random fact about yourself is?
I..... I.... I like to eat sweetcorn straight out of the tin... Yes. I'm weird, but it's just so nice!

6) Favourite item of clothes?
My blue lace dress from New Look :) Though I think it's getting a hole in it *sad face*

7) What can't you live without?
Is this not an obvious question? Nail polish! Duhhh!

8) Somewhere you want to visit?
I really really really would like to go to Canada some time, and Yellowstone National Park :)

9) Favourite tv show?
Oooo I have so many... I'll list a few. Doctor Who, 90210, Criminal Minds, Two and a Half Men, and Friends

10) One thing you want to try doing but haven't yet? (Like horse riding etc)
Scuba Diving! :D

11) The ultimate question, dogs or cats?
I love both but, I'm going to have to go with... Dogs :)


I nominate...


Now my little nominees, I proceed with my questions, to you!

4. Do you prefer having male friends or female friends?
5. What's your dream job?
6. Favourite nail polish colour, design and brand?
7. What's your favourite book series? (Or film series if you aren't into reading that much)
8. Come up with the most random, craziest sentence you can think of right now? :)
9. What are your favourite baby names? (One for a boy and one for a girl!)
10. When's your birthday? (And a very Happy Birthday to you for this 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 …
