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 :)

    1. Hi! Thank you, and good spot, there is! It's one coat of Models Own's "Aqua Splash" flakie polish :)
      Thanks for the nomination too! I'll try and get round to it sometime next week!

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

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 …
