Fridail: Models Own Beetlejuice Purple-Blue!

Hey guys!
It's finally Friday! You know what that means? It's the weekend, and more importantly...
It's a nail post! Wahoo!

This weeks Fridail post is featuring Models Own's Beetlejuice in the shade Purple-Blue!
Hope you enjoy the post, and don't forget to leave a comment below (and make sure you're following me on all the social media links to your right!)
Slightly-Silvery Appearance at times...

So! Purple-Blue, huh? What an inventive name...
But- Where's the blue!? It's very hard to find. 
The polish itself is a very nice colour, though in the bottle it seems very much like the Pinky-Brown, and appears to have a brown base-colour just like it.

It still contains the little shimmery-sparkles that are tucked nicely away into the polish yet reflect enough light to add that extra Wow-Factor!

I see light reflecting here... Yet only one colour!
Onto the slightly disappointing part then? The reflecting two-tones just... aren't there. Pinky-Brown was easy to get pictures of, you literally just tilt your nails one way or another and the nails catch the light and make it all sparkly and two-toned, but this polish? This polish was different. There had to be a significant change of light to be able to locate the two-toned part, and even then it was pretty hard to do so.

Slight two-toned-ness?

Flash-On: Finally!?
You can see in this final picture, with the flash, that it really is a two-toned metallic polish. But really, Models Own? I'm disappointed.

Overall Summary
This polish is very pretty, but the intended effect just doesn't work as nicely as it should, in my opinion. So, buy this polish if you really like the base-purple colour and would like the odd flicker of blue in your life :)
You can buy it for £5 from Boots, Superdrug, or the Models Own's Website.

Thanks for reading!
See you on Monday for an exciting new "I am..." post on books! (Yay, books!)

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 …
