Fridail: Barry M New Gelly's!

Hey there!
Thanks for stopping by ^^ Welcome to the Fridail post- this week I've swatched up two of the new Barry M Gelly's for you!
For those of you who may not have heard, Barry M released 3 new Gelly shades- all pastel colours, of blue, green and pink. They're nearly so pastel that they're an off-white. Nearly...
Picture taken from Barry M's Facebook Page.
Left to Right: Huckleberry, Rose Hip and Sugar Apple

The shades I went for are Huckleberry and Sugar Apple, cause let's face it, I'm really not one for a pink, never mind a pale pink!

The first one I swatched was Huckleberry! (Uh Oh-Typo on the bottle!) And I apologise for the pictures in advance because they are not only super-messy but were also taken using my phone instead of my camera! Sorry guys! <3

Sunlight! Isn't it pretty!?
As you can probably tell from the pics, the lighting makes a huuuuuge difference in how vibrant the colour is. I'm sure your skin tone probably will too! I have a slight olive tinge to my skin, so I don't usually stray towards pastels because they just... Don't really work...  But I quite like this blue! Especially in the sunlight! :) Remember what I said before, about them being so pastel that they're almost an off-white? Look at the top two pictures of this shade- see what I mean?

Now on to the pretty green!
Sugar Apple is also an awesome shade, though kinda similar to the blue. I seriously had to look twice to see if I'd actually changed the colour.

Once again, apologies for the extremely messy mani xD But look at that colour! Isn't it lovely? It's like the inside of a mint cream! (Mmm....) Once again, the colour was slightly more vibrant in natural light, but I didn't have any available to me because of cloudy weather (silly English weather!) so just image a very slightly greener version of the above!

In Conclusion...
These polishes are very nice, and paint on just as well as the other Gelly polishes! Which means that they also have the same issue of some light and dark patches. But they are still just as amazing, and still only £3.99 at Superdrug, Boots or
The colours are also so different form the rest of the collection, so they're a great addiction even for you nail polish addicts!
Hope you liked today's post, don't forget to leave a comment below letting me know what you think, and share the page with your friends! ^^
Bye for now!

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 …
