GoT: House Targaryen!

Haiiiii everyone!

So it's technically Thursday right now but I'm gonna skim over that and point out that it's a "The Fandoms Strike Back!" Game of Thrones day today!

Today's post is focussing on my second favourite House of the series... House Targaryen!
(Cue sassy dragons... or sassy dragon nails?)

Now I'm not as talented as some of those amazing nail bloggers are with their paintbrushes, so I stuck to a silhouette of a dragon, but I still love the way it turned out.

The bright red base (or the "Fire") is Nicole by OPI's "American as Apple Pie" from their Carrie Underwood collection. The dragon (or "blood") is Nails Inc's "Victoria" in their Gel Effect range. It also comes as a normal polish colour though!

I also smeared a little bit of a "T" onto my thumb nail for Targaryen! Yay!

To do this silhouette dragon then, I just used a simple detail brush with my polish and ended up going over parts in a few layers. It honestly doesn't look this patchy in person but due to the delightful weather today I had to use my camera's flash to get crisp pictures. I still like it anyway!

So what do you think of these? Which House are you routing for? 
Also, bonus points to anyone who can answer the following question...
What does Daenerys call her three dragons in the series? (No cheating!)

Answers will be revealed in the next GoT post! See you around ;)

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 …
