Fridail: Katie's back!

Hi everyone! Today Katie from Katie's Lost and Found is back! You can see her previous post *here* which was a Blogger's Bookshelf post! :)
Over to Katie!

Hey guys!
I'm loving neons so much at the moment. I'm not entirely sure why, something about the sheer summery cheerfulness of them I think :). So when I wandered into boots and saw they had model's own on offer, I couldn't resist grabbing three of the new pastel neons. They're from the polish for tans collection and called 'bikini' (yellow), 'flipflops' (green) and 'shades' (pink).

Then I went a little mad haha. First I painted them randomly on my nails over Barry M coconut, before adding random dots on the Barry M coconut on top. Then I did exactly the same thing in reverse haha!

After that I got really carried away and hunted out another two model's own neons from an older collection, pukka purple and pink punch. I used all five with the Barry M coconut and nails Inc new York noir to do a tribal-y kinda skittle.

Then finally used that same combination of polishes for neon leopard print!

I really enjoyed myself even if no-one enjoyed reading about it haha. See you all soon! X
Oh wow, thanks Katie! I have got to get my hands on the other Polish for Tan's polishes; I only have Beach Bag! I love all the designs she's done here, too.

Thanks for reading guys! See you all on Monday for a Blogger's Bookshelf post from myself!

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.
