Fridail: Colour Me Crazy- Pink!

Hey everyone!
I hope you've had a good week, and anybody who got results yesterday did well enough to get where they wanted! I did, and am going to Manchester Uni to study Zoology in September! Woooooo!!

So, onto the post! Here's my pink mani for the British Nail Blogger's Challenge!

For some reason, my camera had difficulties picking up the colours of this mani properly. I think it was the lighting, but I tried a few different ones with no change, so I may have another go in broad daylight and replace/add any images that turn out better!

The brighter polish seen in this manicure was Models Own's "Shades" from their Polish for Tans collection. It's a beautiful glowing pink colour that can come across as more of a peach (but not as much as "Beach Bag"). I feel like it's kind of bringing out my tan a little, as the name suggests, but I must stress that the shine here is coming from the topcoat I used and not from the polish itself, which is actually semi-matte. 

The marbled parts of my nails here are done by using the 'pin marbling' method in Leighton Denny's "Pillow Talk" polish. It looks red in some pics, but it's really a dark pink!

Edit: I got some better photos! They actually match the colours perfectly, so here!

I hope you enjoyed this post then! I should have a book post for you on Monday, followed by a swatch and a purple mani later next week! See you all soon!



  1. These look great especially on the accent nail - I think it looks like pink flames! Well done on getting into university, hope you have fun. :)

    1. Thank you! :D I was aiming for flames, so I'm glad you spotted that! And I will definitely keep you all updated with University!

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 …
