BOHEM Nails!*

*This post contains an item supplied by BOHEM Nails in exchange for an honest review. This item is the silver nail jewellery piece.

Hi folks!

Sometime last week I was offered some BOHEM nails to review- so here I am, and here's the review!
(Don't forget that you can click on any of the images to increase the size of them!)

This here, is a BOHEM nail. They're adorable statement pieces made of 925 sterling silver (though some are 24 carat gold plated) and designed as a re-usable accent nail. With the pair you receive a black window box to store them in, a nail buffer, a polishing cloth, 12 super-strong adhesive tabs and an application guide.

When I first saw these in-person, my thoughts were "Omg, how is that chunk of metal going to stay on my nail with those little glue tabs!?" I must say though, I was definitely pleasantly surprised. Another thought I had was "How am I going to get through my day with this on my nail!?" though again, I was pleasantly surprised and was able to do literally everything I would've normally done. 
Typing on the computer- check.
Writing with a pen- check. 
Texting- check. 
Everything else- check. 

I paired my accent nail with Nicole by OPI's "Cinna-man of my dreams" gumdrops polish. The slightly golden tone and glitters in the polish along with the neutral tone of it really helped the BOHEM nail pop, I think. Plus, there's a bit of a difference in the length of my natural nails and the silver piece- but again, I personally feel like it definitely works!

As you can see, the nail is in fact almost 1cm taller than my natural nail. But who cares!? I loved it. Different styles of nails come in different lengths- I think the more square and rounded shaped styles are generally a bit shorter than the pointed ones.
The "M" you see here is referring to the size of the BOHEM nail- they come in "S" (small), "M" (medium) and "L" (large), and the size is to do with the width of your nail. They have a handy sizing guide if you're interested. 

Application is also super easy. There's a handy video and instructions page on their website, too, and if you follow this, then your nail could stay on for up to 3 days. Mine stayed on from around 8am when I applied it, until around 5pm when I took it off, without budging even a bit. It wasn't even loose when I tried knock it, and I'd been tapping my nails on desks all day (it makes such a satisfying sound). Also, the adhesive tab didn't leave a mark or any damage to my natural nail, which is a definite bonus- I'm always wary using glue products for these reasons, but I'll definitely, happily use these again. 

All the people I specifically showed my nails to this day were amazed by the statement piece, and thought it was nice and chic, modern and definitely a quirky feature for your nails. I'm still amazed that it didn't hinder anything during the day! 

Are you ready to make a statement? I reckon BOHEM nails could be a great new trend for nights out, festive parties and even weddings very soon- so if you want to check them out yourself and maybe even bag yourself a pair, they sell directly on their website and also on Amazon

You can also buy a sheet of the adhesive tabs separately, so you can keep on re-using your pair of nails!

In conclusion of this essay-like post, I definitely recommend BOHEM nails, and have actually just ordered 3 more pairs from Amazon. Though I'm not sure I'd wear this set of nails during the day again (simply because of the mismatching length), I'll definitely be using them to accessorise my nails at parties and on nights out. 

Let me know what you think of these beauties in the comments below!

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.
