Fridail: Rimmel London "Saturn"

Hey guys!
So it's the end of the week, which means (assuming you've been paying attention) that it's the last of my new Rimmel polishes today! The only one left is Rimmel London's Salon Pro with Lycra by Kate "Saturn". It's in the same shape bottle as the other two that I've shown this week, but it is soooo much better than those!
(Also, check out the little watermarks! Cute huh?)

It's sooooo beautiful, and reminds me of a non-textured version of OPI's Liquid Sand "What Wizardry is This?" which is one of my favourite polishes EVER. I know, I know, I go on about it a lot, so I'll go back to this polish. 

It's basically a very nice dark brown creme polish that has a slight gel-finish, with some very very pretty gold shimmers running through it. Perfect for Autumn I would say!

Aside from the colour then, application is very easy as it has the wider brush- and it doesn't streak! Yay!

I'm gonna throw a couple more images here for you to admire it's glory. It's just so pretty!!

In conclusion, if I had to choose a "polish of the week" this would definitely, hands down, be the one to choose. Love the colour and everything! Go and buy it in Superdrug or Boots for £4.49! :D

So if you haven't heard already both Barry M and Models Own have brought out new polishes this week. I'm trying to get my hands on the Barry M ones but I just can't find them anywhere yet! So I'm keeping my eyes peeled and hopefully I'll be able to pick them up before next week's posts!
If not, I have ordered a Glossybox 6-month subscription (Oh student loan... woops), so hopefully that will come today and I can do an unboxing for Monday!
Otherwise, I have a plan C! I bought 3 of the Barry M Autumn Gellies some time last week and haven't had a chance to try them yet- so they may be featured somewhere!
Anyway, I hope you have a lovely weekend and you can check back here on Monday, where there may be a little itty bitty change in a few things around here... You'll have to wait and see what they are!
See you then!

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 …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
