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! :)

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 …
