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!

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 …
