Hello! I'm back!

Ah, hello dear friends!
I have no idea if anyone's actually been looking on here for the past month or so, but if you're someone who has kept coming back despite the lack of posts, I want to thank you so so much! I'll send a cyber hug your way as soon as they're invented.
Part of the lack of posts is due to my laptop- it's been a little bit poorly and has just had it's hard drive, connector wire and graphics processor replaced. (Thank God for AppleCare though!) Another reason for the lack of posts is just pure messing up of my routine while I've been away from university- everything's just been a blur of travelling, seeing people and revision!

But as you can see, I'm very much back in the world of the bloggers, and the world of the Uni students after a wonderful Christmas break! I do hope you all had as good of a break as I did :)

There's a few non-nail posts to look forward to until I grab my camera back from home though!
*Christmas travel, present picks and going's ons post
*"The Selection" by Kiera Cass book review
*December Glossybox
*January Glossybox
*Art by Starla Moore jewellery!

And then once my camera and laptop are back with me I'll settle into some nail posts to share with you! These will include...
*Disney Villains polish swatches! (Yes- DISNEY!)
*New polishes & 2015 No-Buy
*BornPrettyStore Haul 2.0

Since this is also technically my first post of 2015, I also want to let you know what you can all expect to see over the next year...
*Swatches and Nail Art!
*More book reviews!
*Eyeshadow looks!
*Travelling posts- to South Africa and the USA!
*Uni life & moving into a house!

Right now though, I'm going to leave you to peruse last year's posts, go grab a pizza and see what's up with The Bachelor! If you check back tomorrow there should be a book review of "The Selection" up for you to read through while I revise for some lovely uni exams. 
If you're in the middle of exams right now, I hope they're going well and good luck!
See you all soon!

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'


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 …
