The Pink Ribbon| Breast Cancer Awareness Week

Hello again :)
So today was a major fail on the design front... it kind of worked, but not really.
In short, I salute all of you who do ribbon designs! They aren't easy to do at all!
Anyway, on with the show!

How You Can Raise Awareness
Give money to cancer research charities, such as Cancer Research UK, Breast Cancer Campaign, Breakthrough and Marie Curie.

Tuesday's Design- The Pink Ribbon
I feel like this is the 'typical' design that people use for supporting a breast cancer cure, featuring the pale pink ribbon. 
Let's just say that a dotting tool was soooo not the tool that should be used to draw the ribbon. Won't be making that mistake again!
So everybody, my biggest apologies for the mess that is supposed to be a ribbon on my ring finger there. Shan't happen again!

(I'm only showing one hand because the other one is extremely bad- even the dots look bad...) 
I'm going to assume that the messiness of the design is because I did it at around midnight. Woopsies!

Polishes Used:
  • Leighton Denny- "Spoil Me" (base colour)
  • Rimmel London Long Lasting Colour- "Baby Pink" (ribbon/spots)
Have some more pictures, anyway!

I guess the ribbon is the most common design for this sort of thing because it's a recognised symbol to show that you care...
Anyway! Check out the first post if you missed it! (Clickety Click)
And keep your eye out for tomorrow'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 …
