Models Own Beetlejuice Pinky Brown!

It's Friday! YAY!
That means, it's a nail post day! =)

Say hello to my new friend: Models Own's "Pinky Brown" from their Beetlejuice Collection.
This polish amused me greatly- in some lights it reflected pink, and in others, brown! Who would've guessed it from the amazingly inventive name? 

As you can see here, the base is pretty browny-gold, but as the light hits, you get more colours dancing around your nails.
(I spent about 5 minutes getting light to bounce off my nails in different ways saying "Piiink... Brown! Piiink.... Brown!" My friend said she could've had a better conversation with her 7 year old cousin heheh)
Here you can see both the pink and the golden-brown reflecting-pretty cool, huh? :D

The polish is pretty much the brown base (which you can see in the top picture) mixed with little glitter flecks of pink and golden brown that reflect the light in the way that you can see above. If you look closely on the thumb nail, you can see what I mean by the glitter flecks. And that's pretty much all there is to cover! I really love this polish though, it's so beautiful! 
The polish was so pretty that I actually kept it on for ages! It lasted a whole 6 days without any substantial chipping, and even then I only took it off because I wanted to try another polish! So if you want long-lasting sparkly goodness, this is definitely a go-to! 

I bought another Beetlejuice one- "Purple-Blue", though now I'm wishing that I went for a completely different shade. But oh well! Have some more pictures to stare at and love, and I shall see you on Monday for another "I am..." post ^^

Don't forget to leave a comment below sharing your own thoughts on this polish, and any polish requests or favourites too!

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 …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
