Orly: Sparkling Garbage!

Hey guys!
Hope you all had a fab bank holiday weekend :)

***New Favourite Polish Alert!!***

This is a very rare event, that I find a polish that is so beautiful (in my opinion, you may hate it) that I can call it a "favourite" out of my 340-ish others. But hi! Today I'm sharing my new favourite polish with you- Orly's Sparkling Garbage.

All pics here are 3 coats of colour plus a clear top coat. These ones are taken in natural light:

First of all, it's so sparkly that my camera had major issues with focusing on it. 

This beauty of a polish consists of a pastel green jelly-like base with a lot of wonderful holographic glitter swimming around in it. It's slightly sheer (hence the 3 coats needed to build up to this shade of green), but it would be a gorgeous topcoat over another polish, and this will definitely be experimented with soon. 

The following images are taken with the flash on

So as you can see, unlike a holographic polish where the holo makes a circular pattern on the nail, the holographic glitter scatters the holo-ness across the nail and produces a whole load of fun for you to sit and tilt your hand in different directions (take my word for it, it's very entertaining). 

And so my dears, that is Orly's Sparkling Garbage, (does it really deserve such a name!? Leave me a comment below with your opinion!) and my most recent favourite polish. Though saying that I have recently discovered thermal gel polishes which provide just as much entertainment (though less holo-glitter). 

Also, before I hop away again, the Polish List has been updated, and I've swatched every single one of my polishes onto wheels, which I will share with you some time this week! 

So, catch you later, hope you're all well and have a fab week!

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 …
