Cute Hearts| Breast Cancer Awareness Week

Hello!
Serious topic this week, over the next 5 days, I'll be posting 5 different designs each containing a pink feature to try and raise awareness for Breast Cancer. In each post I'll include a tutorial, and a 'how you can raise awareness'.

How You Can Raise Awareness
Today's is so simple, all you have to do is wear a pink ribbon! Wearing the pink ribbon shows that you're supporting Breast Cancer Care, and it doesn't matter how you wear it!

Monday's Design: Cute Hearts!
Today's design is super easy to do, and looks so cute! Plus it's actually the first design I've thought of 100% on my own :D
All you need to complete this design is 3 nail polishes!
Ta-Daa!


So all you have to do is:
Paint the base colour on your nails! I've used Barry M Matte Caramel (the beige/nude) and Crush (the burgundy)
They're just so pretty! I love the mattes so much, they're just so amazing!

So next, to make the basic heart shape; (I used Barry M 'Hot Pink')
You just have to paint one line, straight down the side of your nail, like this:
And then add another one at a slight diagonal. Voila!

Repeat this on all of your nails, and then repeat again with the third colour! :) I used Barry M Royal Textured Glitter in Princess for the centre of the heart. 
For the ring finger I just used 'Princess' as a french mani tip for a nice highlight nail that wasn't too plain.

Here's a few more pics in different angles/lighting:









Hope you like it! And don't forget it's all to help raise awareness for Breast Cancer. 
Let me know if you try out the design! ^^

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'

Greetings!

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 tnbl.co.uk



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 …
