A few weeks ago I stumbled across a relatively new nail varnish line called a-england. Created by former fashion designer Adina Bodana, this line celebrates the gothic romance of the legend of Camelot. Smitten with the pictures I saw on other blogs, I placed an order.
First up is Elaine, an AMAZINGLY beautiful purple cream. I have quite a few purple creams in my collection, all of which lean more toward black, especially indoors. Elaine is the only one that I have that looks purple in every light!!
This polish applied like a dream; it’s somewhat thin but not runny or streaky. For such a dark color, it was remarkably easy to work with. This was two coats.
Next is King Arthur, a smoky charcoal with multicolor sparkles. I’ve been looking for *the* perfect dark grey polish for ages now, and I think this one is IT.
Just like Elaine, application of this one was a snap. Both colors wore well; I easily got 4 or 5 days out of them before minor tip wear started to show.
I also picked up Lady of the Lake, which seems to be one of the more popular polishes from the collection. It’s a unique purple holo, which I’ll post pictures of later this week. I am in LOVE with these polishes, and I will be going back for a second order soon! Customer service is amazing, and shipping from the UK is reasonable and FAST!!
The line is 3 free and not tested on animals.
Check them out at www.a-england.co.uk . For another week or so, you can ‘like’ them on Facebook and receive a code for 20% off your purchase. They are DEFINITELY worth taking a peek at.
