Wail: Easter Nails!

Happy Wednesday! :)
So, it's Easter this weekend, and the weather's been pretty lovely up here so I thought I'd share some bright and colourful nails with you all! Plus, I bought some new batteries the other day and my camera seems to like them so far, so I have better pictures for you all again- yay!

I'm also afraid that my nails are looking a little bit shabby- they'd been worn for about 5 days when I photographed them (I didn't plan on doing a post of them to be honest!), so my apologies for that!

Pretty fitting for the colourful Easter-egg time of year, aren't they? :)
I started off by painting two base coats of yellow polish- Rimmel London Sunshine- before adding a layer of 'cloud' in each colour. 
There's a tutorial on it right here, by YouTuber MissJenFabulous:

My chosen polishes (and their general prices) are as follows!
Rimmel London- Sunshine- £2.99
A bright and cheerful yellow- perfect for the Summer, and easily opaque in two to three coats.

Barry M Gelly: Passionfruit- £3.99
A bright and beautiful pink shade with a hint of an orange tone, just like the inside of a passionfruit! Wonderful compliment to a neutral outfit.

Rimmel London: Sky High- £3.69
A delicate teal blue with a lot of potential for any manicure, it compliments and contrasts many other colours and is a shade which is perfect for any time of year.

Barry M Gelly: Papaya- £3.99
A subtle yet bright peach-toned polish, Papaya is a beautiful colour that will compliment many shades of cream, pink, orange, brown, beige and general neutral tones. Great holiday-in-the-sun colour!

Nails Inc: Westbourne Park (Hologram Polish)- £5 on
Westbourne Park is a great silver-hologram polish that can literally shine every colour of the rainbow. It's perfect for anything, but especially parties!

So let me know that you think of this mani in the comments below, or via some form of social media!
Also let me know if you try it yourself- I want to see some pictures! :D

That's all for now, see you in a couple of days!

Coming Up Soon...
Friday: Fridail: Radiant Orchid- Colour of the Year!
Monday: A Blogger's Bookshelf: Allegiant

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 …
