Green Gradient!

Hey lovelies! 

Today I have a post for you featuring 3 (I think?) never-seen-here-before items! Those are... some green-silver glitter gradient nail wraps, Model's Own Disco Pants "Paradise Garage" and Barry M's Silver Foil! 

As you can see, I did a little green and silver mani with them all, to match the nail wraps which can definitely only be described as 'sparkly goodness'.

The glitter in them is surprisingly fine, but there's so much of it that I don't care! They sparkle super well in the right light.

As for the other nails, I did a sponge gradient on my pinkie (which didn't go so well) and thumb, using Paradise Garage and Silver Foil. 

And on my middle finger I did this strange dot... thing. Which then smudged :(

But, aside from all the little mishaps, I really like the colour combination and will definitely be going back to the nail wraps that I have left in the future!

The nail wrap stickers are of course from none other than Born Pretty Store. You can find them specifically here. Don't forget to use "REEG10" at the checkout for an extra 10% off any full price items! (You must be sick of seeing that sentence by now- I'll give it a break for a while!)

So I hope you liked this mani! As much as I love the colours I don't think I'll keep it on very long as the failed gradients are annoying me a little. But never mind! Drop me a comment and let me know what you think! 

See you all on Monday! :)


  1. That green polish is to kill for. LOL I like the mani, it's cute, but know how you feel. I hate it when things don't turn out the way I planned :/

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 …
