Fridail: Barry M "Rockstar"

Hey everyone!
Today I gave another of Barry M's Glitterati polishes- you know, the ones that are super duper sparkly!
It's also the last post with my nails as this shape for a while, since I snapped my pinkie nail and had to trim them all down. Sad times! :(

Anyway, Rockstar is the darkest polish of the collection, and also probably the most interesting. It has a slightly translucent grey gel-like base, with a whole load of different glitter colours thrown in. All images are with two coats of polish, and the next two are taken with the flash on. 

As you can see, they still have pretty good reflective properties, and also have the smooth finish that all of the Glitterati polishes appear to have! 

The glitter colours which can be seen are primarily greens, blues and reds, though there's the occasional flicker of yellow/gold and purple sparkles to be spotted! It's reminding me of when you see videos of catwalks and red carpets, where there are loads of paparazzi taking pics on the film. Definitely rockstar worthy!

Just like the past two Glitterati's, this one was also a little bit of a pain to remove, but considering the density of the glitter, it's definitely not as bad as it could be, and it is most definitely worth it.

And that's that! I hope you liked this polish- let me know what you think of it in the comments below!
You can find Barry M's Glitterati polishes at Boots, Superdrug, and for £3.99 per bottle.
See you on Sunday for the reveal of the Blogiversary giveaway! Who's excited? (I am!) :)

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 …

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).
