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!

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 …
