"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.

  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

    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! :)

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'

Greetings!

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 tnbl.co.uk



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 …
