a-England Spam Post Part 1

Hello there Lovely Readers!

I hope you're ready for a mahoosive photo bomb? I have five a-England polishes for you today that I purchased in the super sale that a-England held recently. I couldn't pass on the offers that Adina had on! Instead of putting 16 photos onto one post, I've split this into 2 posts. I think 8/9 photos per post is more manageable .

Iseult is a soft pink cream with a very slight shimmer. Application was a bit on the dodgy side with this and I ended up applying 3 coats for full opacity. I think it would look really nice as a sheer polish with just one coat too. It's not a colour I'd usually go for but that's why I bought it. I quite fancied some different shades in my collection and I'm happy I got this one (even if it doesn't really suit me!) as the shimmer makes it stand out a little from just a bog-standard pink cream.

The shimmer is much more obvious under artificial light. A very pretty polish and another for the wedding day (I'm not hinting, it's just an observation!).

Ascalon really surprised me. I wasn't expecting to fall in love with this one at all but I totally have! I'm not usually a fan of silver polishes (or gold) but the purple duochrome mixed with a holographic shimmer won me over! Application was great, an easy 2 coats. Photographing the purple shimmer was a bit difficult but I think I just about managed under artificial light.

Guinevere was another happy surprise for me! Again, not a colour I'd usually pick but this really was a perfect lilac/lavendar cream. It went on like a dream and had a perfect formula. I applied 2 coats but I think if you were careful with your application you could possibly get away with 1 coat.

Stay tuned for Dragon and Order of the Garter...
