Wail: Prom Nails!

Hey everyone!
So it was my sixth-form prom the other Saturday (the 28th of June!) and we all know how much nails add to an outfit, so today I'm sharing mine!

My dress and shoes were a bright coral colour- a very similar shade to that nail polish in the photo, and I completed my outfit with some gold jewellery. 

So in light of this- I did a set of water marble nails for myself, which turned out rather well if I dare say so myself. You can find my tutorial for water marbling here! :) 

The polishes I used are Rimmel "Cocktail Passion" which is the peachy/coral colour, Barry M "Mediterranean" which is the slightly metallic/shimmery pink you can see a few flecks of, and Nails Inc "Lanesborough Place" which is the gold. 

I really loved this mani and all of it's shimmery-shiny-metallic ness, so that's why there's a lot of pictures. Sorry about that! 

I'd love to hear what you think of my nails, too, so don't be a stranger and leave a note in the comments below!
Thank you for reading!


  1. Got a swatch of that coral?

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 …
