Pink, pink and more... pink!?

Hey everyone!

This post was meant to go up on Friday but I kinda forgot to write it (oops) so it's here for y'all today!

Anyway, after wearing a couple of mani's featuring blues and darker colours, I did something a bit out of the ordinary for me...
I went to my nail drawer, and picked out...
(On purpose!)
I guess my subconscious fancied some brighter summery colours for a change- who knew I had it in me, right!?

I actually really loved this mani too, and it stayed on my nails for a good 5 days which is a veeeery long time for me!

This mani was also what can only be deemed as a "successful fail mani" as I was aiming to do a sugar spin on the duochrome nails with the other polish. It didn't reeeeeeeally work very well, and I ended up with blobs everywhere.

And so, I embraced the blobs and went with it. 

This bright, Summery peachy pink colour is Nails Inc's Mornington Crescent. On these nails I added some little delicate hearts in Models Own's Jack Frost glitter polish- a fine holographic glitter in a rather thick liquid.

The duochrome polish is none other than Barry M's Mediterranean. Such a great polish for those Summer months!

And so, the successful fail pink mani was born. I still rather like it and it's not even on my nails anymore!
Are you a pink person, or ready for your Summer manis? Let me know in the comments below!

Hope you have a great start to the week- see you on Wednesday!

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 …
