Orly Turquoise Color Flip!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week! :)

Today's post is introducing you to a pretty new blue polish I bought last week- Orly's "Turquoise Color Flip"

Beginning true to its name, the shade of blue is definitely that of a turquoise shade!

The first 3 images shown are taken with the flash on- and as you can see, there's a pretty little shimmer in the blue polish, which reminds me a lot of one of Avon's turquoise shimmery polishes!

It was a pretty opaque polish too, taking only two coats in comparison to some shimmers which can take three coats of polish! The effect the shimmer had too was definitely beautiful.

Though, I'm not sure I'd call it a "color flip" polish, as that (to me, anyway) is implying that the polish is a duo or multi-chrome polish where more than one colour can clearly be seen. All I can see is this one shade of blue and some pretty little shimmers!

That being said though, these two 'daylight' (as in, rainy Manchester daylight through a window) images show just how beautiful the polish can be, as it has an almost sophisticated vibe to it, yet it's a fun colour to wear too! 

So, yup! That is also my first ever Orly polish, and I'm very impressed and glad that it was this colour. 
That's all I have for you today, too! I'll catch you all on Monday when I have another BornPrettyStore item review for you to take a peek at!

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 …
