a-england Dragon

Today I have for you another stunning polish from the a-england Legend collection

Dragon is a striking green, with flashes of gold, as well as a stunning scattered holo running through it.

This one really deserves its namesake, the green is like Dragon scales, and the gold flash makes me think of Dragon eyes.

Anyway, here is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of Dragon and no top coat.

I love this one, but I seem to love all of this collection so I wasn't expecting this one to be any different, Adina has created some stunning polishes here and I cannot wait to show you the others.

Thanks for looking <3

Dollish Polish My Little Buttercup

I have for you all today another pretty from Dollish Polish.

This polish is based around the song performed in The Three Amigos.

My Little Buttercup is a great tribute to this song, it is a shimmery bright yellow polish which also has some larger pieces of holo glitter through it.

Application was great on this one, and coverage was opaque with 2 coats, which I was happy with as I know yellows can be a bit fussy at time.

So here is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of My Little Buttercup and 1 of the Shield.

Unfortunately, I did not see this one in Dollys store when I was looking earlier, however there are still many amazing polishes there to be drooled over, I think when I next make a purchase from Dolly, it is going to be difficult to decide which to get.....

Thanks for looking <3

Illamasqua Prism over a-england King Arthur

Today I have for you a layering combo I loved, I got Prism in a quad from Illamasqua as part of my Christmas, I have yet to try it alone but will show you it at some point for sure, will probably do a post on the quad actually.

Prism is a sheer iridescent blue, and would be great for layering over many different polishes I can imagine, but I was already wearing a-england King Arthur (shown alone here) and decided to try Prism over this, and I am so glad I did.  The blue flash from Prism shows up so well, even in lower light (the last picture shows this) but as it is fairly sheer, the grey of King Arthur is still quite visible.

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 1 of King Arthur, 1 of Prism and 1 of the Shield.

Thanks for looking <3

Ozotic 507 over a-england Camelot

Today I have for you a stunning Ozotic multichrome from Llarowe.

507 is an amazing multichrome that shifts from mossy/khaki green to an almost golden yellow, at certain times there are also hints of blue.

Again I layered this one over black to get a more extreme colour shift.

Here is 1 coat of the Knight, 1 of Camelot, 2 of 507 and 1 of the Shield.

I love the colour shift in this one!  My mum did get me Chanel Peridot for Christmas, but I haven't tried it yet, but when I do I will be interested to see how close it is to this one.

Thanks for looking <3

Lynnderella Shape Shifter over a-england Avalon

Today I have for you my last Lynnderella from the parcel I got from Llarowe, it is a sad day but hopefully it will not be the last Lynnderella post forever.

As far as I can tell from the Lynnderella site, Shape Shifter is from the First Edition collection and is described here:

Multiple sizes of silver holographic hexagons and squares, micro glitter, plus hearts, stars, diamonds, crescent moons, flowers, butterflies and bars in a clear base. Challenging application due to shifting shapes.

This is a very striking polish due to the amount of holo in it, but was also a bit tricky to apply due to some of the larger glitter pieces.  Some slight repositioning was required for the much larger bits, I only managed to get a Heart and a Moon from the Shapes in this mani but when I previously wore this I also got a Diamond, a Star and a Flower (as well as a Heart and Moon).  I love that each time you wear this polish it will be different.

I decided to layer it over a-england Avalon, so here is 1 coat of the Knight, 1 of Avalon, 2 of Shape Shifter and 1 of the Shield.

Before I go, here is a quick picture I managed to find from the first time I wore this polish that shows some of the other shapes.  Its not a great picture but for some reason it seems to be the only one on my computer of this mani, not sure what happened there.  If I remember rightly this was 1 coat of the Knight, 3 coats of Ozotic 506, 2 of Shape Shifter and no top coat

Thanks for looking <3

Next we have Ledbury Road, a metallic taupe polish.

a-england Princess Sabra (Tristam Eyes)

Here is something I know you have all been waiting for, my first post on the new a-england Legend collection.

It was such a hard decision on which to post first, but for some reason, Princess Sabra was just calling to me tonight when I was looking through pictures.

Princess Sabra is also known as Tristam Eyes, and I think Adina based the colour of this polish on the beautiful eyes of Tristam the kitty.  It is a greenish gold colour with a stunning scattered holo effect, which actually looks almost linear at times.

Here is 1 coat of the Knight and 2 of the polish, I didn't do a top coat to show you how shiny these polishes are alone.

Wow, apologies for the abundance of pictures, but I could not narrow this one down.

I hope you like this one and I am going to try and space my Legend posts out a bit so I don't use them all at once, but I cannot wait to show you each and every one of them as they are all stunning <3

These are not on the a-england site yet but can be ordered by emailing

Thanks for looking.
