Just My Look: Valentine's Challenge!*

*This post contains items which were supplied to me by in return for some Valentine's Day nail art. These items are the three Morgan Taylor polishes which were used.

Hello dears!

Around this time last week I received an email from Just My Look asking if I was up for doing their Valentine's Day nail art challenge. Of course, I agreed, and they sent along three lovely Morgan Taylor polishes from their stock!

From left to right these are: Pink Flame-ingo, Time to Shine, and All White Now!
Not only are the names of the polishes fabulous, but the polishes themselves are too, and are absolutely amazing to work with.

Without further ado, here is my mani!

First of all, to make the neon pink really pop (mission successful there I think- it was distracting me earlier!), I put a white base on my nails consisting of two coats of All White Now

The polish was soooo so shiny and I'm now regretting not snapping up a pic of it for you all!

I followed this with two coats of the distractingly bright and beautiful Pink Flame-ingo polish!

Now comes the typical Valentine's hearts part! I used the rather dense glitter polish Time to Shine here and also a dotting tool- but you can use the end of a bobby pin, a blunt pencil/empty pen or the rounded end of a fairly small paintbrush to recreate the design if you want to!

Making the hearts is super easy! All you have to do is put two dots of polish side by side and then drag the excess from each into a point- tadaa! Perfect heart! 

And there you have it, my Valentine's Challenge nail art courtesy of polishes from Just My Look!

They have a wonderful range of nail polishes and make-up along side many other products, all at reasonable prices and with free UK delivery, so make sure you go and check them out!

And also, have a lovely Valentine's day whatever you find yourself doing!
Have a great weekend too, and I shall catch you on Monday! Thanks for reading! :)

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 …
