I am... a Blogger!

Hello hello!
Welcome to a new 'series' of the blog, if you can call it that.
Here I'm going to post a new title every week (or replace a nail post one, if I don't have time and such) so you always have something to read (if you want to ^^) and it gives me a chance to share the things I really care about as well as give you a bit more of an idea of who I am as a person.

So for my first topic, I'm just gonna talk about being a blogger, how it came about and how it's going.
First thing's first them- I'm a nail blogger- and my nail polish obsession didn't really begin til just over a year ago and I would go into Superdrug at least once a week and pretty much always exit the store with a nail polish of some variety. (Goodbye life savings...)
Then we were in school one day and me and one of my besties were joking about making a blog together, and we decided on doing Sister blogs, so they could be separate but still joint together. So we did! We made blogs! And I love mine to pieces. It's great just having an outlet I can turn to, and somewhere that I can share all my nail-ideas (you know, when I occasionally get them...). I just love it!

Although, I'm bogged down with school work pretty much 24/7, and am volunteering two nights a week and occasionally a saturday, plus staying behind after school for things, I still find time to blog a bit (alongside some reading and occasional TV watching ^^'). It's a great place to share things, and you have absolutely no idea how fulfilling it feels whenever someone new follows your blog or connected social media. And seeing those view counts at the end of a bad day, or week or even month! It's just all so worthwhile and amazing. <3
In other words, to all of you follower peoples, I love you guys, and you make my days so much better, so thank you! :)

If you're thinking about making your own blog, and have any questions or ideas that you don't know quite how to undertake, feel free to contact me ^^
And, one last thing, if you do make a blog, don't do it because you feel like you have to- you're ultimately not writing for others- you're writing for yourself and allowing others to read it ^^

I shall see you all very soon, with a post on the OPI Nail Apps I picked up for £2 each in B&M Bargains! :) (How exciting!!) And also very soon with another "I am..." post, and a Models Own mini-haul! :D

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 …
