Bonjour everyone!

Today's post is a liiiiiittle bit late due to a university assignment, but the others are all going to be late this week too so don't worry about it.

For today anyway I have a cute slightly-Spring, slightly-Winter mani for you with a feature of the Eiffel Tower thanks to a cute little water decal I received oh-so-long-ago during Christmas.

For a base colour, I used a polish I received in an order the other week of a pale green-blue- Nicole by OPI's "I Shop Mintage". It's a perfect colour for spring!
I then added the water decal of the cute little Eiffel Tower, before adding on a sparkly blue polish- Nicole by OPI's "Blue-berry Sweet On You" from their gumdrops range. This forms a little base for the tower to stand on and also creates a cute little icy/frosted stand.

My ring nail was a different matter and I used a polish that I'd kept hidden away for a month or so- plus- it's an indie polish! A holographic indie polish for that matter! :D It's called "Descendants of Salem" by Freckles Polish.
I added some spots in the formation of a flower-like explosion to highlight this nail slightly, though they didn't show up as well as I'd expected.

And there you have it! I hope you like this mani, I think it's definitely one of my favourites!
I've updated the nail polish list recently too, so all my newer polishes are finally up on there.
Keep your eyes peeled this week for a House Targaryen mani and also a swatchy swatch swatch!

See you later, hope your week is going well!

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 …
