3D-Look Water Decals!*

*This post contains an item which was supplied by BornPrettyStore in return for an honest review. In this post, the item is the water decals!

Hello dears!
Today's post is the last of the items that were sent to me to review by Born Pretty Store- and I'm giving it to you a couple of days early so I can maybe sneak an extra post or two in somewhere!

And that item, is these cute water decals!

To begin with, when I received these, I was actually a little disappointed with how they looked in person, but honestly as soon as they were on my nails, my opinion flipped!

As you can see, the decals come in 2 patterns on the sheet, one a golden colour and one a silvery shade, both of which have the highlight pattern with the gems on.

Both patterns are really nice, and they work especially well with the curve of your nails, as they have a 3D-like appearance with shading and highlighting, which just adds to their awesomeness!

The detail that's been put into the design itself is also pretty amazing- just look at this marble-like look on the 'gem' nail! The only bad thing about the gem nails though, is that the gem is generally near the tip of the design, and my nails weren't long enough to catch it without some fiddly cutting down of the design (boo!), but seriously, I can live with that!

Application was also super easy to do as they're water decals and not sticky-backed nail strips. Water decals are basically "temporary tattoos" for your nails (like those you used to get as kids in magazines and sweet-packets), so all you have to do is peel off the plastic front, submerge the decal in water, wet your nail and then slide the design onto it. As both your nail and the design is wet, you can easily slide it around, then all you have to do it pat it dry with a tissue/kitchen roll, and let it air dry or speed-dry it with a hair dryer, and seal it in with a clear top coat! Simples, and a lot less hassle than sticky nail strips that you can't move around! 

In conclusion then, very impressed with this product! You can grab them yourself from Born Pretty's Water Decal section along with many, many other designs! 
If you think you'd prefer the more traditional nail wraps, you're in luck and can also grab those from right here!

Although Born Pretty's prices are already amazing, you can also grab an extra 10% off any full-priced stock using the code: REEG10
Don't forget it's free delivery too!

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.
