a-england Lady of the Lake

Theyyy'rrreee heeereee! My very first a-england polishes arrived the other day and I couldn't wait to try them! I got the much buzzed about scattered holos Tristam and Lady of the Lake during a-england's anniversary sale. I'd wanted them forever and the price was right so I finally just went for it. The amazing part is that even though these shipped to me all the way from the UK, international shipping is free on all of a-england's orders! How awesome is that?!

If you're not familiar with a-england, they're an indie polish brand based in (Where else?) England and made a big splash in the blogopshere with their first collection, The Mythicals, which is themed around the legend of King Arthur. Today I've got Lady of the Lake to show you, a scattered purple holo that is lovely beyond words. It doesn't get much more luxe than this.

And finally, one with flash:

I think the sheer amount of pictures I posted is evidence to how much I love this polish. It's ridiculously beautiful and I can see why this brand gets so much buzz in the blogosphere. The formula is silky smooth and covered easily in two coats. This is a scattered rather than a linear holo but the holographic effect is still quite apparent. I keep staring at my hands and watching the little rainbows appear! Lady of the Lake is just too gorgeous! If you're a holo lover-or just looking for a new brand to try-you need to check this polish out. I really can't recommend it highly enough.

I'm so glad I finally got to try a-england and I am not let down one bit! I already have the upcoming a-england collection, the St. George-inspired and linear holo-filled The Legend, on pre-order and eagerly await its arrival. You can buy a-england from either their official website or from US stockists like llarowe and Overall Beauty
