Fridail: Purple Water Marble!

Hi guys!
So so sooo sorry for this post being so late in the day- time kinda escaped from me a little as I've been sorting out some Uni stuff and tidying the house in preparation for my birthday on Tuesday! (Super excited!)

Anyway, this post is linking to the British Nail Blogger's "Colour Me Crazy" Challenge, as this week's colour is purple!

Not gonna lie here, they're kinda shabby and I didn't clean them up very well, but let's not dwell too much on that!
You can find my "How to: Water Marble" post here!

So, I started with a white base colour on my nails, using Barry M's "Matt White" polish. All was going quite well, until the lilac coloured polish kinda failed cause it was too light- which is why most of my nails look a bit off-white. But never mind!

Polishes used are... Barry M's Gelly "Prickly Pear"

Barry M's Gelly "Plum" 

And finally, Models Own's "Sterling Silver" which is providing the very slight silvery and shimmery lines you can see!

So yeah... In conclusion, this is definitely not my best water marble, but it's also not my worst (it took me a few attempts to get used to the technique!). Here's my right hand, just for you to see it... It's not cleaned up very much at all, so apologies for that ^^'

And that's everything for today! Once again, so sorry it's late! And don't forget that there's a big announcement tomorrow!!
See you then!


  1. Awesome! Watermarbling hates me so much. These are really cool x

    1. Thanks! I think as long as you use a decent container and polishes it makes it easier ^^ If you haven't already tried Barry M's Gelly polishes, definitely try one with these cause they're amazing for marbling :) But otherwise yeah, there are good days and bad days (but never give up! :D)

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 …
