Wail: Party Nails!

Hey there!
Welcome to Wednesday's Nail-a-riffic post! (New word- like it?)
So, it was one of my best friend's 18th birthday on Monday, and she had a party on Saturday (fun times!) You know what that means? Well, a coordinated manicure of course! Since it was a party, I felt that I had to follow a rule... SPARKLES! I love sparkles!

I was wearing this little number that I got from New Look some time last year along with some gold jewellery, and so I went with green and gold mani to match nicely.

I'm not going to lie here... The polish I ended up using? I forgot I had it! It was one of those epiphanies that you get when trying to go to sleep, and just have to sort it out there and then, so I did! 
The main polish I chose was Revlon's Moon Candy, in the shade Meteor and darn I forgot how much I loved it! It's just so pretty and fitting and the glitter-part of it is holographic glitter flakes, which help to bring out the darker coloured polish that is used as a base. It's beautiful!

As you can see here, I did a quick gold sparkling highlight nail, using Barry M's Royal Textured Glitters in the shade Majesty. It was the perfect complementary colour with the green, I reckon! And it was so sparkly, which is always a plus... Always.

I just love the Moon Candy so much. Gah! Why/How did I forget about it!? /sigh/ I think you'll be seeing it again quite soon! 
On another note, the party was super fun, and I wasn't ill the day after (though the birthday girl was muahaha!) And four of us went out to a pub on the Monday for some food, so I baked a cake, and would just like to share it with you before I disappear back into the world that is real life...
Yay, cake!
Finally, though, I sorted all of my nail polish out, popped it into a spreadsheet, which you can see too! So let me know if you want anything in particular swatched or featured. You can find the link in the normal menu-bar thingy, or just for a bit of ease, you can....

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 …
