Models Own Chrome Blue and Moreeeee Stamping!

Hello everyone!
Today's post is not only a day late but it's also going to be super quick so I can run off to bed to get rid of this horrible migraine that's pounding away!

My nails here are featuring one coat- yes, one- of Models Own's Chrome Blue polish, topped with some stamping using Born Pretty's Stamping polish in Black, and a few of their plates which I will list below!

There was some instructions floating around the internet for using the Models Own Chrome polishes, stating that the best way to get them flawless was to buff and shine your bare nails and then apply the polish- that's no basecoat like usual! Not only that, the polish came off super easy too!

It's also recommended not to use a top coat as it might spoil the finish of the polish- though some people have used them and it's worked fine, as long as the polish is completely dry before hand. All pics here are top-coat free! 

I had to share the closeups of these two stamping images as I think they're some of my favourite so far!

And this was a quick glimpse at my other hand- I need a tripod so I can grab some better pics of both hands for you all!
Stamping plates used are all available from Born Pretty Store (don't forget 10% off code is REEG10) and are plates BP41, BP42 and MLS301

Thank you for reading dears! I'll hopefully have a chance to hop back over tomorrow morning, if not then expect a post by around 9pm tomorrow night, featuring 3 very pretty Morgan Taylor polishes!
See you then!

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 …
