A England ~ Lady Shalott

A England ~ Lady of Shalott
Blackened base with blue shimmer

If you like the quality of A England’s polishes too, then you certainly won’t be disappointed in this one. It’s the same nice formula, easy to apply and very well pigmented. It was opaque in one coat, but I applied two anyway, to enhance the depth of it.

The shimmer is a bit on the shy side, but it’s there. Here’s two coats of Lady of Shalott with one coat of Catrice Quick Dry & High Shine top coat over:

And from another angle:

This colour is dark and vampy and a must have if you’re into that colour range of polishes.

Lady of Shalott is from A England’s series of Gothic Beauties, and she’s got four other sisters with different colours of shimmer in them. 

Here’s what A England write about this particular polish:
A captive and ethereally beautiful sapphire heart, shrouded in a blackened curse

Not bad, huh?

You know I’d never wear any pretty polish on it’s own, so what I did was to apply an additional coat of shimmer in the shape of Orly “Love Each Other”. It’s a purple shimmer, which didn’t impress me to be honest. Then I sponged Icing “Runway” on the tips, and sealed it all up with a layer of Poshé top coat.

Here are all the pretties:

Verdict: If you’re into dark, vampy colours, you’ll love this. The shimmer doesn’t pop as much on my nails as I’d like it to, but then again, I acquire a lot of shimmer to be truly happy, hahaha! :D
