Doing a simple post today- a Nail Polish lover's Must Have's!

1) A White Polish
Definitely a must have if you wanna be doing some creative work :)
I haven't found an 'amazing' one yet- but my favourite so far is Barry M's "Matt White" which gives you a decent covering two-coater for a mere £2.99 (from Superdrug, Boots or

Do you have a good white in your collection? I wanna try it- so share in the comments!

2) Barry M Gelly Polish
At LEAST one of them, they're just so amazingly perfect! <3

Left to Right: Blueberry, Greenberry, Guava, Papaya
3) Liquid Sands (Or Equivalent Glitter-Textures!)
They're just so perfect and... yeahh... *sigh/swoon*
OPI Liquid Sand "What's Your Number?"

OPI Liquid Sand "What Wizardry Is This?"
Barry M Textured Royalty Glitter- "Princess"
4) Glitter Polishes!
I love sparkles- do you too? If not, then I am extremely disappointed in you dears! Extremely. (I'm kidding, you can like whatever you want)

You just gotta have some sparkle in your life :)

5) Gems!
Gem wheels are possibly one of the best things in the world- they can add a bit of sophisticated interestingness to your mani- amazing! :)

You can get them for cheap on amazon and ebay :) (Cheap being under £5 (inc postage))

6) Crackle Polish(es)!
Crackle polishes are definites for those 'I wanna be interesting but can't be bothered' days, and can really make your nails stand out from the crowd. Bring back the crackle trends guys!

7) Black Striper!
Black stripers= also a life saver. So you want to do a funky design, like a zebra print one! But the brush on a normal polish is just way too think and you do SO not want to do that with a toothpick- the striper's your answer :)

8) Matte Top Coat!
Another beautiful discovery by those nail experts out there. An amazing addition to anyone's collection, the matte top coats can make a design just that teeny bit extra interesting- even more than it was just before! :)

Beautiful! :D

And I think that's pretty much the must-have's of my nail collection :D
Oh! And a dotting tool, because dots are awesome! ^^
That's all for now, see you's soon! :)

  1. A good white polish I use is Sinful Color in Snow me white.its good quality and not to thick.great for using alone or as a base colour.
    Great shades here I like the glitters :) you should try 2True pro glitter range is just as good as Barry M in my opinion!

  2. Ooo I'll keep an eye out for those thank you very much! :D

    1. I'm so obsessed with Barry M that it litterally makes up half of my collection... Woops! :D They're all amazing polishes (with an exception to the sequin ones....)

  4. This is such a fun post! Huh... I only have 3 of these things... is that bad? :) But I live in the US so I can't get Barry M polishes (unless I want to pay like $20 for shipping)! Grrr!

    1. Thanks! I may have to do more fun posts like this haha :) and I'm sure there are alternatives for Barry M Gellies! Nails Inc just released their gel polishes- my friend got one and the colour is gorgeous!

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 …
