Lion King Nail Art!

Hey everyone!

Over the weekend I tried a nail art tutorial by CutePolish, which I'll pop into the end of this post for you all to look at too!

Here was my end result, which I'm pretty impressed with, to be honest!

All I needed was a couple of make-up sponges, a black striper (or striper brush and black polish), a red polish (Nicole by OPI's American as Apple Pie), yellow polish (Nails Inc's Canary Street), white polish (Morgan Taylor's All White Now) aaaand an orange polish (Rimmel's Shirley Temple). Plus the usual base and top coat combo!

I seriously, seriously love this look, despite the few pieces of make-up sponge which managed to sneak their way into sticking to a couple of my nails (I was so gutted when this happened, I should've been more careful). Anyway, it's a super nostalgic mani for me, and reminds me of my few days in South Africa.

And, of course, the Lion King is deffo in the top 3 of my list of Disney films (and always has been, and always will be... Long live the King!).

So yes, I urge you to try this look for yourself! It really isn't as hard as it looks, so don't worry if you're a nail-art beginner (I still count myself as one anyway!), and don't forget to be patient with it.
Here's the video for you all!

Thanks for reading, hope you have a good week, and I'll catch you soon!
Don't forget to let me know what you think or if you try it!

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 …
