A England ~ St. George



A England ~ St. George
Dark teal scattered holo

I might as well tell you right away: I fell in love with St. George the moment I laid eyes on him. Dark, handsome, mysterious – I knew that we were meant to be.

I was so happy when he finally became mine! It’s so long ago now – all the way back to before Royal Mail in the UK started to steal destroy nail mail. I have to confess that I have kept him very safe since then. He’s been sitting safely in my box of untrieds ever since. But today is the big day!

Application was a breeze, no less! And it’s a one coater too! (I applied two anyway – out of habit, I guess, haha!) Drying time is good. In fact, I can’t really find anything negative to say about this polish. It’s teal, it’s holographic, it’s delicious. Oh joy!

Allow me to demonstrate what I’m talking about. Here’s a picture of what two coats, and no topcoat looks like – the picture is taken in indirect light:


Isn’t that just delicious? Let me turn on a lamp for you:


Then the scattered holo effect shows up, yay! And here’s a couple of pictures taken with flash:


I know, right? Isn’t that just something? Is it so weird I fell in love?


Here’s what A England writes about St. George:

Bearer of a valiant & courageous heart, this fathomless teal reveals the strength of the brave knight's convictions with his gleaming, fiery core.

I want my St. George to be a bad boy! So I found a stamping plate from Moyou London called Biker Collection-05:


...and chose three different designs from that. I stamped with Kiko 616 Emerald from the Mirror Collection. And here’s a picture taken in my lightbox:


And here’s a picture taken with flash:


Last picture is of my thumb – I just love that design. I’m sad that it’s so big that I can only use it on my thumb, but I guess it’s better than nothing.
