Nails of the Day!

Hello! Nice to see you stumbled across my little blog (or welcome back if you've visited here before!)
Today's just a quick little post to show that I'm not neglecting you, I'm just trying to sort some ideas for new posts on top of sixth form, homework, driving lessons, volunteering 2 nights a week, volunteering on Saturdays and still having time to myself ^^; Plus, sixth form have now dropped a bomb on us (not literally), giving us a mere 2 week warning that we have presentations to prepare for our Extended Project Qualification. Busy, busy, busy!
Anyway, on with the post!

What's been used?

  • OPI's Designer Series (DS) Radiance
  • Nails Inc Bling It On Emerald kit (includes glitter and Queen Victoria Street polish)
  • Nails Inc Westbourne Park Holographic Polish
  • Revlon Plum Night (Discontinued :< ) 
  • Barry M Jewel Glitter- Diamond
A cute little glitter gradient never goes amiss :)
Holographic spots? Yes please!
How lush is this colour!?

I am literally SO gutted that Revlon don't sell 'Plum Night' anymore- it was just that perfect shade that was professional and sophisticated. :( I'll have to find a replacement shade somewhere (Damn, what a good excuse for some polish shopping!)

See you guy's soon, probably for some halloweeny nails! Ooooo! 


  1. These are beautiful, fun, and cute at the same time! I love the unexpected combination of the red with white dots and the elegant glitter gradient :)

    1. Aww thank you so much! :) I'm glad you like them! :D If you follow me on twitter (@Nail_Parade) I have a new NOTD image up from my nails last night/today :))

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 …
