a-england St. George

I've got another a-England beauty to share today. This one is St. George, a teal holo. St. George admittedly didn't seem to have as strong of a holographic effect as the other polishes from The Legend Collection but I didn't mind too much. The base color is so rich and beautiful that it made up for the more diminished holo.







I also snapped a few shots under the hot lamp I keep on my table for when I do my nails so that you guys could see the holo in a different light.





The formula on St. George was stellar. I love how smooth these a-England holos go on--and the fact that you don't need a special basecoat for them like with Nfu Oh and some of the other specialty holos out there. The wear is great too. St. George, like the other a-England holos, does not chip easily, which linear holos can be notorious for. I bang up my hands a lot at work but this polish stayed put for two days with no signs of wear. I'm sure it would've lasted even longer but you know me: I have to change my polish constantly! This is a truly gorgeous polish and if you even remotely like teal polishes, this is worthy of a place in your stash. Another a-England polish I love--are we surprised? ;)

  5. This is so gorgeous! I almost don't even care that the holo effect isn't as strong.

    1. Thanks! That's kind of how I feel too--the base is just so beautiful as-is.
