Cute Hearts| Breast Cancer Awareness Week

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!

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! ^^


  1. Such a good idea! Love your nails.
    And it's amazing that you want to raise awareness it's such an important thing and this is the platform to do it.

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 …
