Fridail: Maybelline Ocean Blue!

Happy Friday everybody! :)

Today I bring to you a polish that I've had for ages, yet hadn't tried! (I'm sure we all have a big list of those somewhere...) Introducing...
Maybelline Color Show in the shade "Ocean Blue!'

It's a super pretty royal blue with a hint of shimmer and metallic properties. It really is the nicest (darker) shade of blue I have found in a long time- I loved it within seconds of putting it on my nails! I really wouldn't count it as an "ocean blue" colour though... More of a... bright royal blue.
Here's some pics with the flash on too so you can see the shimmer a little better.

This polish was pretty opaque with two coats, but I used 3, just to see how much shimmer I could get out of it. It is genuinely a beautiful polish though that can go with pretty much any outfit. 
One of my friends also owns this though, and said "it chips like crazy" and I had mine on for around 3 days and it got a little chip by the end of the 2nd day so I'm thinking she could be right! But it all depends on the top coat you use too, so don't just take our word for it :)

Either way, if you're looking for a stunning blue polish, this is definitely a must, and for only £2.99 from Boots or Superdrug, why not!? ^^

Thanks for reading anyway! I recently made some new purchases, so here's a little sneaky peek if you haven't seen on twitter already...

I'm so excited to try them all (And have tried the Models Own one already- LOVE IT!), so expect posts on them all soon! I'm going to post swatches and reviews of each in different posts just to keep you all straining your necks for previews, which will be around my Facebook and Twitter!
I'm also going to be setting up a Tumblr page over the weekend to use a bit like my twitter page, but a little bit more word-y, so keep an eye out for that, and I shall see you all on Monday!
Have a great weekend!

Coming Up This Week...
Monday: A Blogger's Bookshelf: Allegiant Part 2
Wednesday: Wail: Models Own Polish For Tans- Beach Bag!

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 …
