GoT: House Stark

Hey everyone!

The Fandoms are continuing to 'Strike Back' today, and House Stark is leading the battle in Game of Thrones!

I think the Starks are my favourite house in the GoT universe, so it seemed like a good place to start for the second half of the Game of Thrones manis- the Houses!

To 'celebrate' the Starks, I started off with a base of white (Morgan Taylor's 'All White Now') and sponged on a green-grey colour (Nicole by OPI's 'Goodbye Shoes') in a circle-ish motion to leave some white visible.

On my thumb and pinkie I started with the grey and sponged the white on the tips.

I then used the pen-like end of my black striper (Andrea Fulerton's Dot & Flick Nail Art) to draw on the paw prints (of a dire wolf) on my index and ring fingers, and an "S" for Stark on my middle finger! 

I'm really chuffed with how the paw prints turned out, though the S did smudge a little. However I do kinda like it like this, it adds to the Game of Thrones' style!

I'm also loving the colour of this grey polish, it has a very unique amount green/blue in it and will be a great colour for the Winter months. 

So I hope you like this Stark mani, and will support House Stark with me throughout this season of GoT! If you're supporting a different house though tell me which in the comments below! ;)

See you on Friday, where I will hopefully show you my ball nails! That's right... I'm going to a ball on Friday! I'm so excited :D See you then!

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 …
