My name is Rachael, I live in rural England – in South Lincolnshire – a stones throw away from Peterborough, Leicester and Nottingham. I’m a web designer by trade and a full time beauty addict, with a particular passion for nail polish. I’m blogging my way through what I have and maybe a few other cheeky purchases along the way may be reviewed.

I’m by no means a professional beautician, nail painter, photographer or writer. All of the above are part of this new hobby after following the latest trends in beauty (especially nail trends) and following beauty blog and youtubers for over 4 years it was time to bite the bullet and join in.

I’m open to requests – leave a comment on my posts and I’ll do my best to find and give my opinion.

Blog Disclaimer

Every review I have, or will write on this blog is honest and based on my own experience with a product. If I ever have a particularly negative experience with a product, I will usually put to the back of the drawer, and re-review in a month or so’s time, to check my opinions are the same, to ensure everything is given a fair test and if I don’t like a product I give it fair chance to be retried and tested.

 I love working with brands and companies and will accept products to be reviewed time to time, any posts where products have been sent for review or have been sponsored will be clearly marked and outlined within the post. Opinions are always and will always be 100% my own and reflective of my experience with a product.

Please note that I will not write or mention your brand, products or services without having tried them or without sponsorship. Please feel free to contact me for more information or take a look at the ‘Work With Me‘ Page here.

    I was wondering where you get your theme from and if you had to purchase it? I’m still quite new to blogging so its taking me a while to try and figure out how to set the pages up but I really like the look of you blog 🙂
