Arctic Animal Sticker Decals*

*This post contains an item supplied for free by LadyQueenBeauty in exchange for an honest review. All views are my own. 

Hey everyone!

Today I have a post for you containing some cute arctic animal stickers, and to continue the 'arctic' theme, some pretty blue polish as a background.

The item in question can be found right here on Lady Queen's site, and can be purchased for just over £1.
I was super impressed with the quality of these- they're slightly raised but not too much to catch on anything yet still enough to give an effect. They're also super adorable which you can hopefully see in the pics, and they have some sharp, clear details on them too!

They come in a sheet containing 5 designs (all shown in this post- two polar bear poses, two penguin poses and a seal), with around 5-6 stickers of each design. And you'll be glad to know they're super easy to peel off said sheet, though the size of them can make it hard to manoeuvre into the right place on your nail so I recommend using tweezers. 

For the background of my nails, I used Barry M's Gelly Guava as a base before dabbing on their Gelly Huckleburry and Sugar Apple polishes with cling film. The result is this super easy marble-y effect!

Lady Queen Beauty have also been so generous as to supply us with a 15% Off code. Simply use it by going through to the checkout after selecting your items, and use the code in the "coupon code" section and it should work just like magic!

My code is HZLC15 , and can be found in this useful banner which will always be visible in the side bar (unless you're on mobile)!

So I hope you like this post and the item featured (seriously they're adorable), don't be afraid to contact me if you have any questions about anything here, and have a great week!

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.
