My Picks from A England's The Legend Collection

Happy Friday lovelies!

  Today I finally get to show you the Three AMAZEBALL pretties the sweet Adina was kind enough to share with me. I had been sitting on these polishes for ever before I was able to swatch them. The Sun was not cooperating with me these past few weeks, but we finally had a really nice day and the only thing on my mind was swatching these holographic beauties. All I could think of as I swatched each color was "OMG" because each shade seemed to be more stunning than the next. I'm thinking I'm going to have to order some more colors from this collection... Starting with Ascalon...
 To see swatches of these pretties just keep reading after the jump.

  SO as to not repeat myself over and over.. These Three colors have an absolute perfect formula. They are all Two coats (St. George could have been one coat), very pigmented and they have THE perfect consistency. I am always in awe of how A England's seem to have the best formulas I have ever encountered.

A England Dragon
OMG Dragon!!!!!!! This color... I had high expectations for this shade and boy did it just shatter them completely. This is just on a league of its own. The base is a rich Forest Green with a Golden duochrome and a strong holographic Sparkle running through it. This is Golden- Green done right! Eat your heart out Chanel Peridot... You ain't got NOTHING on Dragon.

A England St. George
St. George is a deep jewel toned Teal with a subtle holographic finish. This is the "least" holo-y out of the Three that I wanted the most. However! Just look at it! Is this stunning or what? I've never seen a shade like this one and I love it to bits. This reminds me of one of my all time favorite shades, Illamasqua Viridian. St George is a Teal-er and holo version of Viridian so how could I not instantly fall for it?

A England Princess Sabra (Tristam Eyes)
Tristam Eyes is a light Green, leaning Slightly Golden with a very strong linear holographic finish. This is like office- friendly holo done right. I love that the inspiration behind this shade is partly Adina's baby kitty Tristam, who is a handsome boy kitty with gorg markings and eyes.

  I love that Adina is giving us Holographic shades in colors that are unique and different from what is already out there. Seems like there are quite a few companies offering holos but they are always in the same Pinks, Blues and Purple tones.... Well here comes Adina with amazing Green- Golden duocrhome holos and Silver- Lavender Holos... I mean just amazing and unique and well thought out. I really appreciate uniqueness in my collection, which is why A England will always have a special place in my heart and collection for giving the customers what they want and still managing to be unique and outstanding. I'm thinking I need a few more colors from this collection now... Maybe all... Since I started blogging I had been waiting for a collection to blow my panties off and I think that day has finally arrived... A England, I salute you for blowing my mind!

  8. How is it that you have such short nails now and they still look awesome! You should do some posts about your nail care. I think it would be helpful as your nails look beautiful short or long!

  10. I just got Princess Sabra in the mail the other day and am ecstatic. It will the first of many more aEngland polishes I buy. On me it comes off as a neutral brass patina shade. Probably because I'm a deeper skin tone but I love have a neutral with sex appeal!

  12. I'm a nail polish noob - can you find A England in US stores? or do you need to order directly from A England?
