Textured Gradient| Breast Cancer Awareness Week

Hey everyone ^^
As you can probably see, yes, it's Thursday today! Which means I missed a day out of the week, but oh well!
I shall include 2 ideas to help to make up for the loss!

What Else Can You Do To Help?
1) Wear pink! That's right- all pink! This will be a distinctive way to show that you support the cause, and to spread the idea around too! (Offical 'wear pink for breast cancer awareness' day is this Friday 24th October '13 so make sure you get your outfit planned by tomorrow!)

2) Hold a bake sale? Bake sales are such a fun and easy way to make money- you get all the fun of making the cakes (especially with a friend!), you get the excuse to eat one to "ensure they're fit for sale" ;) plus the amazing time to decorate them, and you get to raise money for such a good cause! I mean come on, who wouldn't buy a cake for Breast Cancer Research?

The Mani
Today's mani is a bit of a re-do, so you may have seen it a little before!
Both polishes are Barry M, as per usual... The base is their Textured "Kingsland Road" (Oh em gee. It's that band on X Factor!) and the glitter is their Diamond Glitter.
Of course, both polishes are amazingly beautiful and I wish they'd just bring out some more Textured polishes! Gah! I need some darker textured please Barry? PLEASE!?

Anyway, have some pic's! I'm off to go and do tomorrow's Mani before I get distracted :P

Ta-da! Hope you like them! They're a little messy hehe but oh well!
Bye for now! <3

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 …
