Wail: Vicky's Back!

Hi everybody! Today I return Vicky to you all with another awesome post!
Hope you're all well and having a great week ^^
Hello everyone! It’s Vicky from Vicky Loves Nails back with my second guest post for Rachel whilst she is doing her exams (I hope they have been going well!)

I’ve been using my fan brush quite a lot recently in nail art, so I decided to show you one of the manicure’s I have created using that today. Up until about a month ago I had never used my fan brush, but since trying it I have loved it and I’ve been using it loads.. I don’t know why it took me so long to try it!

For this design I used a base colour of Nails Inc – Holland Park Gardens and used an unnamed Color Club for the fan brush gradient. I decided to combine it with one of my other favourite techniques; the glitter gradient. The glitter I used was Next Nail – Night Fever.

I really loved how these came out; they sort of remind me of dewy grass as the glitter makes it glisten. They were so easy to create too!

Thanks again Rachel for having me on your blog and I hope you all enjoyed my post.
Thank you Vicky! Once again, I adore those colours! And I never even thought about using a fan brush in that way- what a great idea! I'm going to have to try it some time.
Don't forget to go and check out Vicky's blog (link at the top!) and have a great couple of days before you check back here on Friday!
Thanks for reading,
Rachel x

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 …
