Mail: Messy Mani

Let it be known that from this day forth, any nail posts posted on Mondays shall be known as "Mail's". Yay!
For the first "Mail" post, I'm going to be sharing one of my new purchases with you...
Model's Own's "Erase" Corrector Pen!

I feel like this could be a major turning point in my blog's image quality, as I no longer have an excuse for messy mani's. 
Though I'd first like to point out that I feel like I have come quite far since the beginning of my blog, and no longer post images such as this...
I mean, just look at that thumb!? (Polish is Barry M Spring Green)

...Except for today, I'm posting a very (purposefully) messy mani, to show you how the corrector pen can work! Also please keep in mind that I actually did this mani pretty much in the dark, around midnight the other day. :D

I quite enjoyed being super careless with my painting, actually. Is that wrong of me?

Also, you may recognise the colour from Friday's post! Barry M's "Rhossili"

This corrector pen then- what's the deal with it? Well, it's acetone free, for a start, so it isn't going to dry out your skin too much. It's basically, a highlighter nib soaked in some form of nail polish remover, and (personally) a lot easier and more precise to use than a cotton-bud is.

There are also two more nibs tucked away inside the lid of the pen- so hopefully it'll last a while! The shape of the nib is really useful, as you can get detailed by just using the pointed end, or you can clean up any large messes using it flat. Here's the magic it worked...

So, they're still a little messy, but just look at the difference! Plus, you can easily go around your nails again! If you notice in time, before you take pictures that is. 

So yes, the Models Own "Erase" corrector pen, for only £4.99 from Superdrug or If you're a messy pup like me, I definitely recommend it. :)

Thank you for reading and I shall see you Wednesday!

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 …
