a-england Elizabeth & Mary Collection

a-england Elizabeth & Mary

The a-england Elizabeth & Mary collection just came out so you need to prepare for some seriously stunning shades!

This new collection features five new shades with a nod to Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary of Scots. Each of these has an extremely pleasant creamy and smooth formula, and they are so opaque! I probably could have gotten away with just one coat for a few of them, but I did everything with two coats.

a-england Hurt No Living Thing and Excalibur Renaissance

a-england Hurt No Living Thing

 a-england has brought back Excalibur Renaissance by popular demand and also has released a new shade called Hurt No Living Thing.

Excalibur Renaissance is an intense silver metallic. This is not to be confused with the new shade called Excalibur, which is a grey with holo shimmer. Hurt No Living Thing is a sheer greyed out pink which can be used by itself or as a topper to other shades.

You can find these on the a-england site or check her “Where To Buy” page to see other sellers.

a-england Ballerina Collection Swatches and Review

a-england Ballerina

The a-england Ballerina collection is a new four-piece collection featuring pretty, soft, ethereal holographic shades.

Ballerina was inspired by Margot Fonteyn, a world-famous dancer, and her partner Rudof Nureyev. They danced together in many ballets including Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and Don Quixote. I grew up watching ballet because my mom loved it and took classes when she was young, as did I. I hadn’t thought of these names in years so I’m happy to see a collection based on their amazing talent.

All four of these shades apply like smooth, melted butter. Perfection. They only need two coats to be perfect and opaque. Adina knocked it out of the park again!

a-england Burne-Jones Dream Swatches and Review

a-england Burne-Jones Dream

a-england Burne-Jones Dream is a new collection featuring four amazing holographic shimmery shades (with a 5th to come!).

But who is Edward Burne-Jones? He was a British painter who did a series of painting between 1885-1890 called The Legend Of Briar Rose. I happen to think this makes an excellent inspiration for a-england nail shades!

As usual with this brand the formula is so incredibly perfect. One coat seems like it will be too sheer, but after the second completely creamy one, everything is opaque, even and perfect.
