Wail: Mini Haul!

Hey everyone!
You better be having a good week (if not then hopefully the rest of the week will be a lot better)!
I decided to have a last minute post-reshuffle... Today's post will be showing a mini-haul, and Friday's post will reveal my pink mani!

Shopping Receipt:
Models Own "Shades" - £5 from Superdrug
Maybelline Express Finish "Khaki Green" - £1 from Poundland
Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Colour "Kinetic Copper" - £1 from Poundland
Sally Hansen Sugar Coat "Sweetie" - £1 from Poundland
Total: £8! Bargain! :)

So, yes... Poundland has been a rather large hit today! I was pretty chuffed to find some decent polishes in there, so make sure you all keep your eyes peeled when you're around your local Poundland store.

Let's start with a closer look at the Maybelline polish then!

The "express finish 40" part on the bottle is suggesting to me that it's a speed dry polish- exciting!

As for the colour, it's looking like a very satisfying army-camouflage green, and I can't wait to try it!

Moving on, I present to you a magnetic Sally Hansen polish! Remember when magnetic polishes were all-the-rage? Ahhh, good times.

This colour looks so amazing, I just can't wait to give it a try. It's reminding me of Autumn, so will definitely be a colour to pull out more in that time of year.

I'm hoping the magnetic effect will be pretty awesome, but we shall just have to wait and see, won't we? :)

That brings us to the next Sally Hansen polish, which is a pastel-looking yellow, which is actually a little split in the bottle, so I'm not entirely sure how well it'll work out, but since it was only £1, I'm willing to take the risk!

This cute, fun colour is called "Sweetie" and I think the Sally Hansen "Sugar Coat" polishes are textured polishes, so this will be a cute mani when I get round to trying the polish!

That leaves one more polish for us to cover then, and that is... this one!

Behold the bright glory of Models Own's "Shades" (which may be required for this polish), from their Polish for Tans collection.

This bright pink shade will be the perfect addition for the rest of the Summer days, and maybe even a nice cheerful shade to brighten up those Winter months. I can't wait to try this!

 Now before you disappear, I actually made one more purchase today that I wouldn't mind featuring on the blog... Introducing Rimmel's new mascara- it's "Wonder'full" (no really, that's the name of it...)

It's got a wonderful (...oops) new formula containing Argan oil, which is a moisturising oil, that's supposed to be able to moisturise and therefore help to strengthen your lashes- yay!

The shape of the packaging is adorable... I love it so much! And the mascara wand has lots of comb-like bristles which are perfect for grasping all of those lashes. Yet another thing that I can't wait to try, so I will keep you updated on this via twitter/facebook :) 

You can find this mascara in Superdrug/Boots for the currently discounted price of £5.99, though the discount can't last forever and will return to the original price of £7.99, so if you want it, snap it up fast!

And I do believe that covers all products, so I shall bid you farewell for now, and catch up with you all on Friday!
Also, if you're getting A2 or AS results tomorrow (Thursday), then Good Luck to you!! Feel free to share how you do- I'm sure you'll have done great!! 

See ya!


  1. Kinetic Copper is a lovely colour and I believe (from memory) that the effect is also great. Sweetie is a really pretty colour and another polish I already! The poundshops are a favourite of mine for polish, especially if you have a good rummage for the hidden gems. :)

    1. Ooo awesome! I can't wait to try them, I'll have to make sure I do soon before they get forgotten about :') I think poundshops may be my new favourite bargain place hehe, though they had a lot of extremely split polishes, but I'm up for digging!

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 …
