Update time!

Hi guys :)
I hope you enjoyed our guest poster's blog posts as much as I did!
My holiday was lush, and I even came back with a rather nice tan if I do say so myself (am I allowed to say so?)

So since getting back in the UK, I was super busy packing and such ready to be shipped off to Uni. Let me tell you this- it isn't easy choosing a bucket full of nail polishes out of the 200 you have in your drawer at home. :( Missing them already!
If you want to see which one's I've chosen to come with me, I'll be updating my polish list within the next couple of hours (so by midnight Monday night/Tuesday morning).

In the mean time, my Uni room is kinda small but in an almost-cosy way. (It'll do for the year anyway, I suppose!) Also... I'm getting my new phone on Sunday! That means no more smashed screen! EEP! :D

So I hope you're all okay, and "normal" posts will return from Wednesday or Friday.... (I'm aiming for Wednesday!) Keep an eye on social media to make sure you don't miss anything!
See you soon~

Edit: Polish list spreadsheet is now filled in! As you can see I'm limited to 37 polishes at the moment (dun dun dun)... I'll have to buy some more. :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 …
