Fridail: Barry M Matte Rhossili

Hey guys!
Today I'm bringing you a swatch/review of Barry M's "Rhossili" from their Summer 2014 Matte Collection!

As you can see, it's a bright pink/purple shade, which has a semi-matte finish. Compared to the previous 'matte' polishes by Barry M, these aren't as matte, and have much more of a sheen which can be seen in the photos. 

So, let's focus on the colour shall we? This colour is beautiful! I love it so much- and I'm really not that much of a fan of pinky shades, so it takes a lot for me to say that. 

What makes the colour even more stunning... is a shiny top coat! Seriously- if this shade was a 'Gelly' shade instead I would literally be head over heels for it. But never mind, I guess this will have to make do!
The topcoat I used here was Nails Inc's Albert Bridge Topcoat (Speed Dry), and the shine is just stunning!

So, yeah, that's Rhossili! You'll be seeing the colour a couple more times in the next few posts, but hopefully you'll love it as much as I am!
(And apologies for the slight messiness, I thought it was a bit tidier than this, but I did it in the dark- woops!!)

Thanks for reading- see you on Monday!


  1. This colour is gorgeous! I may have to go buy it now!! x

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 …
