Today, I am sharing with you a collection from a brand that I don't show enough on this blog. I buy every single collection but never get around to doing a complete collection review for you all. one of things I wanted to try and do with the blog this year was to blog about the things I actually buy and not just press samples. That way you guys know what I truly love since I bought it with my own money. A England is a favorite brand of mine. Their polishes are consistently perfect, have amazing formulas and are always beautiful. I don't even look at reviews or swatches of the collections when they come out. I just buy them sight on seen and am never disappointed with the products. I am pretty sure I have purchased all of my A England polishes through Color4Nails since they are a UK brand. The newest collection available on the site is the Tennyson's Romance collection. There are 5 beautiful holographic polishes to show you. Each one is a stunner!
Angel Grace - A soft but bright iris purple linear holographic with a pink flash. So pretty, wow! The holographic shimmer in this polish is very prominent and the color is a different than the pruple holso I typically seen. Lovely formula. I am showing you two coats with a glossy top coat here. (Spoiler alert...this was the only two coater in the collection!)
The Beggar Maid - A pewter grey metallic base with blue and gold shimmer. This polish is very interesting. The golden shimmer give this a little bit of a brown lean but the blue shimmer keeps on the cooler side. I dig it! I am showing you one coat with glossy top coat here. One Coat! A England formulas are notorious for being super opaque and great in one coat.
King Cophetua - A black creme base with subtle soft holographic silver shimmer. The holo in this is very subtle and scattered. On the website, this color is described as a blackened green but all I could see was black. Maybe the green tint would show up better in the direct sunlight? Either way, it is a nice black polish with a little something extra. I am showing you just one coat with a glossy top coat here.
Shall Be My Queen - A bright raspberry red scattered holo with a slight metallic effect. A England does red polish very well. They have a few other similar shades but this red leans more pink than the others. Fantastic formula! I am showing you just one coat here with a glossy top coat.
In Robe and Crown - A deep and vampy burgundy wine with scattered holographic effect and a slight red flash. Talk about a gorgeous polish! I am so glad a nubbed up before swatching this. Dark polishes always look great on short nails. The formula was perfection. I am showing you one coat with a glossy top coat here.
This is a very nice collection from A England. I do feel that some of the colors are very reminiscent of other shades in their line but no exact dupes. I think putting together a comparison post for you guys is in order. You can purchase these polishes directly from the A England site or get them from Color4Nails like I did. They have international shipping where A England does not. My favorite is In Robe and Crown. It is just so vampy and delicious. Which is your fave?
Thanks for stopping by!
