Fridail: Revlon Sun Candy- "Sun Shower"

Happy Friday Everyone!
Do you remember, about 2 years ago Revlon released a pretty awesome collection of polishes called "Moon Candy"? Those were a creme-gel formula on one side, with a flakey glitter in a similar shade on the other side. Well, Revlon have released a bit of a counter-moon candy...
Introducing... Sun Candy!

These polishes have the same creme-gel formula in the base colour, but instead of flakey glitter, we have fine grainy glitter in another shade of the themed colour!
The colours available are....
Celestial Shine- A pale creamy colour (very very slightly orange) duo'd with a soft golden glitter
Pink Dawn- A pastel 'baby' pink, paired with some pale pink slightly golden glitter
Solar Flare- A pastel peach base, combo'd with slightly yellow-shaded glitter
Lava Flame- A bright orange base for pairing with a golden glitter
Shimmering Sunset- A bright pink base to be paired with an orange-gold glitter
Sun Shower- A pastel blue-mint shade, with a silver-blue glitter

The last three are the ones that I picked up for myself, simply because the colours were the most appealing to me! I'm really not one for pale colours!
I'm going to bring you swatches of these three polishes over the course of three posts- the first one today, and the other two next Wednesday and Friday.
Today, I bring to you... 

Now, when looking at these pictures, please take into account that the polish really did not look this bright at all in person, but more like a soft blue/mint shade that isn't too bright, and isn't too pastel. 

The glitter was also pretty hard to photograph nicely, and appears a little more sparkly than you can see here...

Let's talk about application though! The base is a typical Revlon formula, and is always so amazingly lush to apply. (In my opinion, anyway) This was fully opaque after two average coats and then ready for some glitter!

The glitter also covered pretty darn well, even with one coat. I did two coats here though, to see if it you could see it any better, but it didn't really do much, so I think the colour combo is slightly off, in comparison to the other colours, which you will see very very soon!

So in a general conclusion, this collection is pretty awesome, but this polish lacks the flare that the others have, as the glitter is way too much of a similar shade to the base colour that it's supposed to be paired with. Separately though, these polishes are definitely worth the investment, as the colours really are gorgeous. And of course, if you're looking for just a slight shimmer, this polish will be great for you! 

Below, you can see some pics that I took when the flash is on, giving the glitter more of a silver appearance. You can also tell that the glitter spread nice and evenly, which is awesome!

You can get your paws on these polishes for only £7.99 from your local Superdrug or Boots.
Thanks for reading, and don't forget to leave a comment below!

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).

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.
