LiL Challenge: Pink!

Hey everyone! Yesterday was the second round of Life in Lacquer's nail art challenge and the theme was pink!

So here is my mani!

The pale pink polish is Nails Inc's "South Molton Street" with the bright/hot pink slightly shimmery polish of Barry M's summer limited edition "Promenade" from Superdrug.

The lid on this polish is just far too adorable! And this effect is really easy and simple to do- you just paint your nails one colour, wait until it's fully dry and then add some strips of tape to your nails before painting over them in your other polish. Simples!

My friend Sarah also took part in today's prompt! 
Here's her mani- using a pale pink Barry M Gelly "Dragon/Dragonfruit", Barry M Textured Glitter "Duchess" and some cute little nail stickers!

How adorable? :D
So that's all for the pink prompt of the challenge- I'm excited to show off my nails for the next one, which you'll be able to see here on Thursday! 
Thanks for reading!


  1. What might the Thursday movie inspired design be?

    1. It's a surprise, you'll have to wait and see!

    2. Could you at least drop a hint like saying what movie?

    3. Nope, you'll just have to wait!

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 …
