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....

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 …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).

That's all the nail stuff really. I did however, get some awesome new glasses with many thanks to Gl…

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
