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!

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.
