Models Own Sterling Silver Swatch!

Hello! Yes, this is an actual post! Woop!
I've been soooooo busy/distracted lately haha, woops. I guess sometimes life just gets in the way of things that you want to do most, doesn't it?
Anyway! I've been on a bit of a spending spree (kind of, not by much though hehe) and I now own 5 new polishes- yay!

(And a lipgloss- Rimmel London Apocalips Stella)

These polishes are: Maybelline Brocades Rosy Rosettes; Maybelline Brocades Woven Skylines; Models Own Sterling Silver; Maybelline Pro 'Purple Reflect'; Maybelline Pro Carbon Grey (or Gray)

I plan to swatch these as the month goes on before diving into some festive designs during December! On with the swatch!

This polish may possibly be my new Winter love. It is genuinely the prettiest silver polish in the World- it's silvery and... more importantly... sparkly! It's like a shimmer-sparkle too, which kind of reminds me of fresh snow when the sunlight's on it and it just looks amazing! :D

Here's some pretty pictures ^^;

The difference between one coat and two coats:

Isn't it pretty? :D 
I've tried the purple too (the purple reflect one) and it's really pretty! It's such a rich colour and nice and shimmery too, but I fell asleep on them when they were still sticky so they smudged and are definitely not image-on-the-internet worthy! So all shall be revealed soon! 

Next swatch will be Nails Inc Beaded (Chancery Lane) :D 
And then I'm all Minnie Mouse-y on Friday so I may have a red nail post too, just because I can!

What's your top winter polish? Tell me in the comments!
Hope you're all well! See you's soon! <3

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 …
