Models Own Hedkandi Hedonist!

Hello there =)
Life's been all busy-busy, so I therefore haven't had much time to change my nails or blog. But it's the school holidays now, so I think I can spare a few hours of homework/catch-up time to catch up with all you lovely folk!
My Models Own order came about a week ago, and daaaang, I'm so impressed! My friend tried her green Gel one, and I must say, it is absolutely stunning! More to follow on that when I try my blue one! For myself, I got the Blue Glint gel, Beetlejuice Pinky-Brown, Beetlejuice Purple-Blue and Hedkandi Hedonist! Ultimately, I was planning on getting the red gel, but it had sold out literally about a minute before we went to buy it, so I'm keeping an eye out in the shops because I just NEED it in my life.
I also went and purchased one of the Barry M new Silk polishes (I got Meadow, the pastel green), so there'll be more to come on that soon too!

My first review is going to be of Hedonist, out of the Hedkandi range. This colour appealed to me because on the Models Own website it looked like a perfect bright replacement for the red gel. I have never been so wrong!

This is definitely not a red polish- it's an extremely bright orange-coral, and damn does it glow! I was walking around with it on and it was pretty impossible to look at anything else because it was so in-your-face and genuinely looked like it was glowing! In my eyes, this is a great thing, it was such a lovely colour!

I spruced it up/toned it down a little by adding a 'cross' of black gemstones to my ring finger, over the top of one coat of my all-time favourite gold shimmer polish- Leighton Denny Gold Dust.

And that is all from me for now! ^^
There'll be another "I am..." post up on Monday, followed by a new polish post on Friday =) And that's the way things will be all the time from now on hopefully! Goodbye being busy, I am making time for my blog! <3
Love you guys!
See ya soon!

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 …
