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!

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.
