The Polish Book!

Hey everyone!

So a couple of weeks back I did something a little crazy, though totally fun... I swatched all my polishes into a book for easy pickings!

Behold... the Polish book!

I separated the polishes by brand (and may make another ordered by colour hehe) and added their names and little codes on next to the swatches. Because whyyyy not!

So far it's made choosing which polish to use a lot easier, and I'm even trying to work through it and use each and every single polish there, so wish me luck and keep an eye peeled!

Do you have any sort of polish-organising system? Let me know in a comment below!

Have a great week, I'll catch you later!


  1. Great idea! I started using swatch sticks but they got unmanageable after a while - this looks like a much better option. Would you use two books - one for makes and one for colours? I feel a shopping trip coming on!

    1. Swatching sticks sounded like a pain in the butt and more expensive when I considered it, though they do look cooler! I'm definitely considering doing another one by colour yes :D
      Make sure the pages are thick enough on the book you buy so the polishes don't sink through! :) Have fun doing it too! ^^

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 …
