Did Somebody Lose a Phoenix?...

... I found some of its feathers!

Hey everyone!

Today, as you can probably see, I have some gold feather water decals to show you all! These are super cute yet pretty sophisticated too and would probably be good for a special event.

I used two polishes here- Models Own's Colour Chrome Indio, and China Glaze's Bend Over Backwards.

As beautiful as the Models Own polish is, I really don't think it works too well with the metallic gold of the decals, and creates a bit of a contrasting shine with it (fail!) but it still looks okay enough! 

I am however, loving, the red/orange paired with the gold, it's so beautiful and almost Chinese-New-Years-y! Where's the year of the rooster when you need it!? Anyway it's a beautiful decal, especially with the detail in each individual feather piece!

The two varying designs are gorgeous too, I would definitely buy them again! Which is a good job really cause I have a pack of silver ones stuffed away somewhere too!
I grabbed these from none other than Born Pretty Store, and you can grab the polishes on Models Own's site, and Nail Polish Direct.

I hope you love the feathers as much as I do!
Tomorrow you're in for a Stark-filled treat, with a zip mani coming up on Friday! Have a great week!

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 …
