Fridail: Orange Shapey Nails!

Hey everyone! :)
Today I'm killing two birds with one stone and combining the two challenges I'm taking part in. (Dangerous, right?)
So that means for the British Nail Blogger's "Colour Me Crazy" challenge, my nails must be Orange!

And for Life In Lacquer's challenge, they must be all Geometric and shapey! 

So I smushed those two together and boom! These rather untidy, weird nails came out!

So the pastel orange I used was really uneven to apply... I think it needs to hit the bin *sniffles*

To get the shapes, I used the triangular and the round nail-tip stickers. I was extremely impatient with them, too, so that's why they came about all smudgy- I take full responsibility!

So the polishes I used here were Rimmel's "Tangy Tangerine" (what a cute name!) which is the pastel base, Essie's "Bazooka" which is the bright orange, and Nicole by OPI's "American as Apple Pie" from the Carrie Underwood collection, which is of course, the red. 

Anyway, after showcasing my potentially worst looking mani ever, I will redeem myself next week, I promise! 
But before that- here's Sarah's nails! The blues are stunning and the way the lines are working reminds me of waves! So pretty!

See you then! :)


  1. I like those! They're a lot of fun.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad someone does even if I don't, it means a lot! :)

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 …
