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 :/

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.
