"Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?"*

*This post contains items which were supplied by Born Pretty Store in return for an honest review. In this post, these items are the "Frozen Water Decals"

Or would you rather do your nails? Why don't you do both!?
Introducing, these wonderful water decals featuring images from Disney's Frozen!

This was actually my first time using water decals and I honestly found that they were super duper easy and not as fiddly as I'd expected! Plus, they're just so cute, and check out that detail! (Remember you can click an image to view a larger version.)

I got one sheet of decals, of the type which are usually around 95p on Born Pretty Store, and had 20 separate designs on them- only a couple of which were repeated! The designs include...

Sassy Elsa's "The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway" pose.

Disney's Frozen logo.

Cute Anna pose!

Marshmallow the snow-monster, Sven, Anna and Hans, and everyone's favourite Snowman- Olaf!

They're so easy to apply, you literally just cut out the single design, submerge it in water along with your nail of choice, then (out of the water) you just slide the design right off the backing paper and onto your nail, where it can be moved around freely for a short while before it dries. After that you just have to mop up any excess water using a tissue, and then seal it on with a topcoat. Beautifully easy!

One of the only con's of water decals, and specifically these ones, is that you can tell that it's not your own amazingly detailed brush strokes that's created the design- so if you're into people not knowing you've "cheated" just bare in mind on the designs you choose! You can check out Born Pretty Store's range of Water Decals here!

But wait... there is more! Before you rush off to buy some, Born Pretty Store have kindly provided a 10% off code for all of my lovely readers (that's you!). Just enter it in the checkout- though it won't work on any items that are already discounted. Here's the code- it'll always be in the sidebar on the right, so don't worry about finding this post again to use it.

If you do buy something, I'd love to know what you chose- so be sure to drop me a comment below!


  1. I am not a Frozen fan but these decals look great and this is a lovely review. I don't think decals are cheating - I definitely think people need to embrace all the wonderful media that we nail peeps get to stick to our digits :D

    1. I agree with you there, though I still feel like I'm "cheating" a little because of how easy it is hehe. And people don't tend to be quite as impressed- but who cares! ;D

  2. These decals are brilliant! My flatmate would love them, I've never done decals before! Are they easy? Could be a good birthday present... Lovely post! :)

    1. They were sooooo easy, I was pleasantly surprised! I'd definitely do a tester one on a bad design or something just for a practice but they're super easy ^^ I wrote a teeny tutorial in my post if you missed it! :)

  3. Goodness, is there nothing you can't get frozen on? Not a fan of the film, but the quality of the decals looks great

    1. It's everywhere! You'll be glad to know that there's a sequel coming out :P

  4. These are so cool!!!!! Thanks for posting this, now I have the perfect Christmas present for my Niece. xxxXXxx

    1. You're very welcome! I'm sure she'll love them! :) x

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.
