Yellow, it's Me!

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you a swatch of a polish with a very punny name. Behold, "Yellow it's Me" by Nicole by OPI.

I'm wearing 5 (fairly thin, yet decent) coats of this polish, surprisingly, and this is due to how sheer the polish is. All images are also taken indoors but near a window. 

So as you can see, and probably figured out from the name of the polish, this is a beautiful shade of yellow. It's kinda pastelly, yet it leans more towards the brighter side, though still manages to hold up to be a gorgeous colour, especially for Springtime.

The polish also has a bit of a twist to it, as it contains a gorgeous orange shimmer element to it. I dunno about you but it just screams "BEES!" to me and would be an awesome polish to add black stripes to for your very own buzzy-bee nails. 

I feel like that little shimmer just adds some extra ta-daaa for me, and even shifts it onto my hypothetical top polishes list. Of course, there is a downside of it taking so many coats to build up to this colour, but if you can be patient with the polish, it will serve you well. 

What do you think of the polish? I'm seriously in love with the shade, my favourite yellow ever!

And so my dears, I must buzz you goodbye for now after leaving you with this glorious swatch. I should go study (yay...). 
Just before I leave, however, I wanna let you know that I won't be posting any more huuuge posts until post-exams, simply because I have left my camera at home. I will however be updating you with any of my instagram pics in posts and have a couple of text-only posts (which I will spruce up with google images, don't worry) for you to read. 

Anyway, have a great week and I shall catch you on Wednesday!

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.
