Foxy21 Gel Polish!*

Hey guys!
Long time no see, but welcome to any new readers, or welcome back to any returning ones. I have a pretty cool post to set you all up for some more exciting things to come, so I'll just skip straight in.

Introducing to you, a new brand of UV & LED Gel polish, known as "Foxy21". The prices and website are still currently being finalised, but as soon as I know how much the polishes are and where they can be purchased from, I'll update this post here to let you know!
As seen in above, the bottles are a professional looking gold, and also surprisingly light in comparison to those of OPI and Morgan Taylor (a definite bonus when trying to paint and hold a bottle in the same hand). I was lucky enough to be provided with a base coat, top coat, bright red polish, dusky pink polish, black polish, and the feature of today - a magnetic thermal silver-pink polish which has been deemed a "Chameleon Cat-Eye Gel Polish". 


This gel polish then is a dusty-pink colour when cold, and a super pretty silver colour when hot. I'm generally pretty warm all the time, so this was the colour of my nails the majority of the time and that is a-okay by me! The polish itself is super shiny, and with the help of the magnet, a stripe appears in the polish that looks like reflections of a 'cat eye'. 


The 'cat eye' stripe even follows the light as it moves, which is not only super pretty but also quite entertaining. A really nice shimmer can also be seen in the polish, with some holographic tendencies! 




In the images above you can see a bit of the transition from silver to pink. It's a really smooth transitional effect that takes place, and the magnetic part can be seen in both colours too. 




And there's the full pink effect for you! (Note that my hands are wet in these images as I was using cold water to speed up the temperature effect).

Aside from this colour, I also tried out the black polish though unfortunately didn't get any pictures of it. The gels lasted really well, and didn't take too long to apply either. The formula was really nice - not too thick like some gel polishes can be, but also not too thin that it just runs everywhere before you get a chance to cure it. As I'm an impatient person though I'd recommend using an LED light if you can, just as it is a lot quicker than using UV to cure it. 
I cured these for 3 minutes per coat (my UV lamp isn't that great), and they lasted perfectly with no lifting or peeling, until I had to take them off for work this morning, so I definitely have no bad things to say about this brand of polish!

From what I understand from my contact with the brand, the polishes won't be that expensive, and there was a lot of colour choice already being discussed, including many versions of the cat-eye chameleon polish seen here as well as many normal gel colours.

I'll keep you updated with this brand in the mean time, so keep your eyes peeled on the blog for links and prices! See you later in the week too, as I have some more swatches to show you all.

Hope you have a great week!

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

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'

Greetings!

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 tnbl.co.uk



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 …
