Twinsie Tuesday: a-england Tristam

Hi everyone! Today is the first installment of an exciting concept invented by Amanda of Amandalandish and Nory of Fierce Makeup and Nails: Twinsie Tuesday! I, along with ten other nail bloggers, will be swatching a polish that fits within a particular theme. This Tuesday's theme is international polish, so what better time to show off British beauty a-england Tristam?

Tristam is a midnight blue scattered holo. You may recall I recently posted another a-england polish, Lady of the Lake, and Tristam is essentially a blue version of that polish. Not that that's a bad thing--far from it! Both polishes are total stunners!

And some flash shots...

Tristam's formula is glossy smooth and covered in two coats. Everything about this polish is to die for. The holo sparkle peeking out against the deep blue base creates a very luxurious effect. Think Essie Starry Starry Night on steroids...and for a much more reasonable price haha.

I really can't recommend both Tristam and Lady of the Lake highly enough. Both the formula and the end result is spectacular. I've also read several interviews with a-england founder Adina Bodana and she is clearly passionate about her career and her products and seeks out inspirations that are meaningful to her--I love that!

I hope you enjoyed this first installment of Twinsie Tuesday! Wanna see what my polish "twins" are wearing for their international polishes today? Just click any of the links below to check out what each girl chose!
