Wiki'd Nails: Tattoo

Hey everyone!

So I joined a challenge group on facebook. You may have heard of the A-Z nail challenge? If not, you can see what all of those lovely ladies got up to right here.

Since that challenge finished, they came up with a new challenge, the Wiki'd nails challenge, where once a week for 10 weeks we each tackle a prompt from a wikipedia page.

Week 1 is none other than... Tattoo!

My original plan for this prompt was to re-create my new tattoo on my nails somehow. I actually even had a pretty perfect stamping image for it... but I left it at home and I don't go back til next Monday. *pout*

So since that plan had gone down the drain, and I thoughtlessly painted my nails a pretty blue from Models Own- Turquoise Sea, that is, I decided to stamp in black anything I would consider getting a tattoo of. 
Apologies in advance for the low-quality pics, my camera was also abandoned at home!

To start with, I've always wanted a wolf tattoo, so that just had to go first and took pride on my thumb, despite the stamping not being too clear (sad times with my poundland stamper, missing my squishy MoYou London one)! 

Then I added a swallow, as my friend actually got this near-exact image tattooed on her shoulder a couple of weeks ago! The leaves are kind-of a tie together, and are something I would actually use to tie together two tattoos or parts of a sleeve etc. 

And finally, the deer head obviously represents my current tattoo, which you saw above, and the dream catcher is something I would definitely consider as a little wrist tattoo!

There's a weekly inLinkz along with this challenge, so make sure to check out what everyone else is doing too. I feel like we all took pretty different approaches to this prompt! Posts will hopefully go up every Thursday for this challenge, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled.

See you soon!

  1. I love the middle finger here - is there a shimmer in there somewhere?!

    I've nominated you for a Liebster Award, I hope you will take part and I am really looking forward to seeing your answers :)

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 …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
