Mail: Barry M Glitterati "Fashion Icon"

Hey guys! Hope you all had a lovely weekend :)

Today I have another Glitterati polish to share with you, and honestly, I haven't even tried them all properly yet... but I think this one may be my favourite!
Introducing... Fashion Icon!

I love it so much that I feel like pictures just don't do it any justice what-so-ever! It's a beautiful shade of purple with the Glitterati's gelly-like formula with loads of swimming glitter.

Oh, and it has this beautiful blue sheen to it in some lights, making it more of a 'blurple' than a purple. I think that is what makes the polish so amazing for me!

As with the last Glitterati that was featured- Catwalk Queen- the polish needed 3 coats, and was smooth to touch. 
There is one teeny weeny drawback though (let's face it, there always is...). The removal of the polish is not amazingly easy. Yes, it's a glitter polish, so it's going to take some work. It doesn't take forever to remove, but if you're looking for a quicker sparkle-removal, you need to look at Barry M's textured glitters/OPI's liquid sand polishes. Apart from that though, consider there are 3 coats of glitter on my nails, I'm very impressed with how it removes. It's just the right amount of scrubbing before you think "urgh, not worth the effort."
And trust me, this colour polish is definitely worth the little bit of removal-effort.

You can grab ahold of this polish and be a Fashion Icon too at Superdrug stores and for only £3.99!

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 …
