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?

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!)
11. Why is my eye itchy? :O

And that is all! Enjoy answering the questions hahaha :3

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 …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
