Fridail: More Carrie Underwood Polish!

Hey everyone!
Sorry for the slightly delayed post, I decided to finish my book instead of write a post last night. (Priorities!)

So today I have 2 more Nicole by OPI polishes from Carrie Underwood's collection. Remember "American as Apple Pie"? Of course you do!

Such a lush polish! Well, I went and bought 2 more from her collection when I had my mega-haul the other weekend. I picked out "Fisher Queen" which is this stunning purple colour you're about to see, and also "Carrie'd Away" which I thought would be a pretty delicate super-fine gold glitter. 

To start off then, Fisher Queen is a super pretty deep purple that honestly, reminds me of those movies where the witches and vampires have claw-like finger nails painted in pretty, dark colours. 

It has a slight metallic shine and a very very slight shimmer, to lighten the colour a bit on occasion, and even twist it into more of a maroon colour than a purple. 

If you're planning any witchy/vampire outfits for halloween this year, you may want to consider this polish! Here's some pics with the flash on, which do it a little more justice than my lighting without it. 

This was 2 coats of polish, though looking back at the pics, I think 3 coats definitely wouldn't have hurt, despite 2 being efficient enough. It's just so beautiful though... I think it's made my favourites list!

Next, I bring to you "Carrie'd Away" which is a super fun play on words. As I said before, I expected it to be a delicate, super-fine gold glitter- and I definitely didn't expect it to cover so well! I was going for a nice little gold shimmer... But I got this. 

It's definitely still a beautiful gold polish, and this is only one coat over the purple! Once coat and it's settled this well! I'm thinking it would be a really nice polish simply by itself to be honest, though it is nice to see the purple around it and through the occasional gap.

Apart from that though, it has just the right amount of sparkle and 'metal' finish- it's not in your face diamonds, but more of a soft metal dust that you've rolled your nail in. It's super pretty though, and both polishes are highly recommended!

You can find these polishes in Superdrug for £7.99 each! :)
Hope you enjoyed today's post, and I shall see you again on Monday!
Don't forget that the giveaway closes on Saturday at 11:59pm! I'll be announcing the winner at the top of Monday's post, so make sure you check back. 
Have a great weekend!

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.
