Way back in May I featured a load of A England polishes in a beauty lust list – the one in particular I wanted from the 5 I featured was out of stock. So when finally 2 months down the line I got a notification saying it was back in, I went to order straight away.
Nail Polish Direct is a fantastic place to pick up polishes at a fraction of the price that they are anywhere else – also if you’re looking for past limited edition polishes (and are suspicious of eBay, as I often am) it’s a great place to have a look. NPD is also one of the few places you can get your hands on Zoya in the UK, I have raved enough about them now, but a great site you should check out.
A England: Captive Goddess, Dragon, The Blessed Damozel & Tristam (£6.95)
There was another polish ‘Virgin Queen’ which was in my original lust list, I decided I wanted to keep my order under £40 – so decided to save that one for later, as I think it’s most like others in my collection. I’ve only tried one nail polish from A England before (Princess Sabra) and the formulation was fantastic, getting more have been on my hit list since!
Dragon – Deep Green Holo | Tristam – Navy Holo | Captive Goddess – Blue/Lilac Duo Chrome Holo | The Blessed Damozel – Navy/Purple depending on light it looks like one or the other (reminds me of a brighter purple OPI Ink)
China Glaze: Liquid Crystal (£2.95)
Spotted as I had a quick look through China Glaze as they were priced so cheaply, I have a love/hate relationship with CG. I find their holos & glitters last really well but their cream and shimmers don’t hold up so well. I actually don’t have anything in this colour in a glitter formulation like this. This is quite similar to captive goddess, it’s a icy blue with a red duochrome shift with holo glitter.
You’ll be seeing reviews of all of these coming up, if there’s any in particular you want to see eagerly, let me know – because I’m having trouble deciding which to use first.
