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.

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

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 …
