Wail: Chloe's turn!

Hi guys! Today I'm bringing you the second (and last) of the guest posts for you. This one is by Chloe from Tipped Off Nails! Here she is...
Hello :)

My first guest post! Yippee.
Let's get to it. I wanted to do the 31 day challenge that chalkboard nails (Instagram) does every year. I started it on the 1st and only got to day 3 before I realised I just couldn't do it. But I want to show you the 3 I DID do. They were a challenge for me because they were red, orange and yellow - the three colours I have 1 or 2 of each...

Anyway, I decided to do fruit themed and I was going to continue this for all of the colour category but... Yeah I failed. :(

First up are my Red Nails:

I decided to go for strawberries and cream because although summer is officially over now, I'm not going to forget them! I used all Barry M Gelly polishes for this (as usual) in Rose Hip, Pomegranate, Coconut and Key Lime. The white is Matt white, also Barry M.

Next are my orange nails:

I struggled with this one because I only own 1 orange and then a peachy orangey colour - which I decided to use for my Grapefruit design. I used Barry M Guava, Matte White and their flaky topcoat and So Susan Strawberry, which is a jelly polish.

Finally, my yellow nails:

Again, I only own 1 normal (well, neon) yellow and the neon glitter from Yes Love. Obviously I had to do lemons using life gave me lemons from OPI.

Not my favourite mani ever! I wish I could've continued this! But I'm just too busy- green was going to be watermelon, blue blueberries and violet is still yet to be decided. Maybe I'll do them sometime in the future!

Wow, thanks Chloe! Those nails look so nice, they've made me hungry. I hope they had the same effect on everyone else! :)
Hopefully we'll see Chloe again soon, but in the mean time, you should check out her blog- Tipped Off Nails- which is linked at the top of the post! 
I'll try and pop a quick post on here on Friday or Saturday to update you all on what's going on, but apart from that, I'll see you all properly next Wednesday!
Have a great week!

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).

That's all the nail stuff really. I did however, get some awesome new glasses with many thanks to Gl…

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.
