Bonus Post! The usual...

Hey everyone!

I thought I'd do a little bit of a bonus post for y'all today to show you what I've bought recently, from none other than Born Pretty Store, of course!

To start with, I treated myself to some nice little silver and gold studs, striping tape (which is a holographic green colour) and some little unicorn sequins!

They're so adorable, I can't wait to use them!

And then I went onto the usual nail wraps and water decals... Here are some cute swirly themed wraps and some Disney Princess themed water decals- featuring Arial, Belle and Jasmine in particular. 

I topped up my supply of panda decals (they're seriously far far faaaar too cute still), grabbed some colourful swirly ones ready for Summer, and also some sophisticated lace ones!

Here's some more full-nail wraps- some swirly gradient ones, wintery blue ones and some glow in the dark Northern Lights and winter tree-scene ones too! I need to check how well these glow actually...

I also picked up more animal ones. because what kind of Zoology student would I be if I didn't? ;) Here you can see Tigger, tiger and cute little spring squirrels/deer etc.

The large sheet seen here has some gorgeously detailed designs on it, as you can see and I also bought some lacey decals on the right there. I honestly have no idea what the design on the left is- it seems to be some kind of spots and says "Fashion" and stuff underneath them... I didn't buy them that's for sure haha, but I won't argue with free gifts!

And finally, i bought this neon coloured sheet of stripey designs which will be perfect (hopefully) for Summer-tastic manis in the next couple of months!

Don't forget you can use the code REEG10 to grab 10% off on any full priced items on Born Pretty Store, and there's also free shipping! Yay!

So what's your favourite item from this pick? Which would you like to see on the blog first!?

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 …
