Wail: Revlon Sun Candy 'Shimmering Sunset'

Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today I bring to you the second post covering Revlon's Sun Candy collection! Today's polish is the beautiful vibrant pink colour, Shimmering Sunset!

It's not very often I say this about pink colours... But wow. Simply wow. The base colour for this is so vibrant and perfect that I literally considered not putting the glitter on. (But I did anyway :P)

As you can see, the glitter in this polish is a lot more easy to see as it has a golden sheen to it which really compliments the base colour and doesn't hide within it.

It's literally the best polish/glitter combo I've seen to date. Definitely my new favourite I think!

Here's some pics with the flash on- as you can see, it makes the glitter reflect the light a little more so you can't see the glitter as clearly, but just look at that pink! (And my slightly messy paintwork...)

And back to the daylight... 

So far then, out of the pink and the blue, I definitely think this one is my favourite. It's just so much more Summery and the name of the polish actually links in quite nicely, as it really is like a Shimmering Sunset! Plus, the glitter really spreads like a dream. All photo's shown here have 2 coats of the pink base with one (yes, ONE) coat of the glitter. Just look at how even that glitter coverage is! I'm impressed Revlon. Very impressed!
You can pick up this polish now for only £7.99 from selected Boots and Superdrug stores! (Go now!)

If you're hopping off to Superdrug, don't forget that there are new Barry M Gelly polishes available! (I'm popping in to see how many I can afford tomorrow, I have my eyes set on three... I swear, I'm addicted!)
So I shall see you all very very soon (Friday, to be exact) and don't forget to be keeping an eye on twitter and facebook to see the designs I'm posting! :)

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.
