OPI Liquid Sand "What Wizardry Is This?"

Now this polish has been mentioned a few times around here, very vaguely- but every time I have it on I always have people saying how much they adore it- and it's THE colour for anytime of the year, let me show you why!

So, to start with, OPI's Liquid Sand's are very very very nice textured polishes, usually with a lot of sparkle, shimmer or just general amazingness. The two I currently own myself are "What Wizardry Is This?" which is what's being covered in this post, and one from the Whitney Houston collection called "What's Your Number?" which I can cover if anybody wants it to be :)

"What Wizardry Is This?" is a polish from OPI's "Oz The Great and Powerful" collection, and genuinely to say that the colour is "magical" (see what I'm doing here?) would be an understatement- it's so much more.

One of the great things about OPI's liquid sands is that they actually dry to a matte finish which is beautiful, and brings out the little sparkles even more! If you want a little more, then you can put a top coat to add a bit more shine and deepen the colour slightly- it looks awesome as a highlight nail, which is what I've done here!

Now isn't it pretty!? I'm gonna break it down a little more now, explaining why it's perfect for ANY time of year :D

Spring: The dark brown base colour still reflects the kind-of long dark nights, but it's becoming nice and easy to see the sparkles during the daylight as the sun starts to peak out (if you're lucky, of course, this is England after all)
Summer: Sunshine and happiness make all the sparkles go 'Oh my gosh, sunlight? We love sunlight! Let us sparkle for you!' It's truly beautiful!
Autumn: The browns pretty much match the bare bark on the trees, and the dead leaves and all of that, plus it's coming up to Christmas which leads us to...
Winter: Christmas time! The dark nights are here, which takes us back into my point about Spring, but the extreme hint of golden sparkle reflects a very Christmassy vibe and is just absolutely stunning! 

So, now that's the spiel over (you should totally go and buy this polish by the way- and this is not a sponsored post, this is my opinion ^^), I leave you with more pictures and a question:
*What's your best all-year round polish?*

And I shall see you all very very soon, for a very very festive post! :D (I'm so excited!)
Goodbye for now! Don't forget to comment below with your answer to the question, aaaand

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 …
