Fridail: Revlon Sun Candy 'Lava Flame'

Happy Friday everyone! (TGIF!)
Today I bring you the last of the Sun Candy polishes that I own- Lava Flame!

The name of this one is pretty perfect, as you can see that the base is a super bright orange/red shade that gets covered in little golden flecks, just like flames (or lava)!

I really feel like this captures the whole "Sun Candy" essence the most as it's easy to see the differences between glitter flecks when one catches the light and another doesn't which reminds me a little of the way the sun's always there even though you don't always see it directly (wow, that was deep...) 
Seriously though, this one reminds me most of the Sun though!

All photo's here are 2 coats of the base colour with one coat of glitter. Once again, yes, just one coat of glitter! How amazing is that please? It's such a no-hassle glitter too, it just glides right on nicely. Love it so much!

This colour combo also actually reminds me of Chinese New Year, with the whole red/gold theme. So if you're planning ahead for next year, pop this polish on the list for then!

You can pick up this duo-polish (or any of the Sun Candy's for that matter) at Superdrug or Boots for a mere £7.99 (bargain alert!) and you honestly should!

So I hope you enjoyed this post, and are also keeping track on all the social media sites (links are in the sidebar)! I shall see you all again tomorrow for a little Allegiant tie-up post (if I get it written in time) and then again on Monday when I'm back from camping over the weekend.
Bye for now! 

Coming Up Soon...
Saturday: A Blogger's Bookshelf: Allegiant Part 2!
Monday: Dani to the Rescue!
Plus a flurry of exam-time guest posts!

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.
