LiL Challenge: Tv/Film Inspired!

Today's prompt from Life in Lacquer is "Tv/Film Inspired!"

After bouncing a few ideas off Sarah, I settled on a Marvel theme... Which turned into a Thor-theme.... Which turned into Loki.
Ah, Loki, I love you.

Actually, I think I love Tom Hiddleston (*swoon*)... But Loki is pretty dang amazing!
Anyway, back to the nails!

This was my first attempt on free-hand nail art like... ever.... And I got a little carried away on the pinkie!
But overall, I'm quite proud of this mani, so I took lots of pics to spam you with!

So may main aim here was to capture the horns, which I attempted on my index and ring fingers, and also to get a bit of a pic of his face with the start of his helmet-horn...thing.

The base polish I used here was Barry M Emerald, which is super pretty as you can see! It's definitely a favourite of mine!
Other polishes used include Barry M Gold Foil Effect, Barry M Textured Glitter Majesty and a Black Striper.

Since he's an evil guy, I decided he didn't deserve a nose :P (Just kidding, I wasn't sure how to do one hehe)

And here's my friend Sarah's mani for the day! It's a super cute Minnie Mouse mani!

She's done some cute classic-Minnie spots, with a highlight nail of white with a Minnie Mouse sticker! How cute!?

So that's all for today! Tomorrow I'll have a special 'Fridail' where I'm taking part in a colour challenge that some of the British Nail Bloggers are taking part in! 
You can catch the next LiL Challnge prompt- dots- on here on Tuesday! 
Thanks for reading!

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 …
