Update time!

Hey everyone!
So, I still haven't finished Allegiant, which I've been reading like, forever, now. (Seriously! Way too long!). As soon as I sit down to read it I remember something else I have to do and forget about it. But! The end is so close I can smell it (almost). My Kindle's telling me 2 hours worth of reading left, and that includes some little bonus features too, so I shall hopefully be finished soon! As soon as it's done though there will be a "Bloggers Bookshelf" post all about it, because so much has happened!
(Hopefully this will be out for you all to read on Saturday)

Also, there's now an awesome Tumblr page (which is still being ironed out a little theme-wise...) which you can follow right here: Tumblrrrrr!
On this page you'll be able to see some pretty awesome designs from the other Tumblrs' as well as a few little in-between misfit posts that won't appear on this page. I'll add the link to the page in this sidebar to the right too, but you should totally drop me a follow or at least a bookmark right this second!

More exciting news includes that I'm going camping this weekend (not that exciting for you guys, but a nice little break for me... if you can call it that), and that I've also decided to start designing a few little nail art collections that I plan to transfer onto some nails (possibly falsies) at some point. Who knows, maybe I'll end up selling them some time! Anyway, I'm releasing these designs on twitter and facebook every day that I don't usually post. (So that's Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays) And they'll be released in their collections, but one design at a time, so keep your eyes peeled! After my exams, there'll be a vote on which design collection I should start on first, which will be open for around 7 days probably, and then you can see lots of nail art goodness spreading the blog!
The first collection I'm working on is a "Game of Thrones" collection and so far has this one design released, with 7 more to follow, so go and like the Facebook page and follow the Twitter to make sure you don't miss a thing!
For those of you who are wondering about what you may be missing, here's the first design that was posted- I hope you like it! :)

And that's all for now, I shall see you all on Wednesday for some naily goodness!

Coming Up Soon...
Wednesday: Wail: Revlon Sun Candy 'Shimmering Sunset'
Friday: Fridail: Revlon Sun Candy 'Lava Flame'
Saturday: A Blogger's Bookshelf: Allegiant Part 2 (Finally...)

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.
