Fata Morgana: Featuring A England's Lady of the Lake

A few weeks ago, A England had an enormous sale on their Mythicals collection. It was the perfect opportunity to pick up my first ever A England polishes! I got King Arthur (of course) and Lady of the Lake.  Then I waited, not so patiently, for them to arrive. Of course, they shipped from England, and the turnaround time was only something like 10 days (which really is amazing), but it felt like forever! I wore Lady of the Lake immediately!

Two coats, Out the Door topper, full sunlight.

What can I say about this polish that hasn't already been said? A England is still an indie brand, but they're kind of THE indie brand- this polish has been reviewed a million times by people far better at this than I am! Will you settle for nail porn? I think you will :)

Again, in full sun. Such a gorgeous, dusty purple!

And here comes that beautiful holo shimmer!

And in the shade. It truly is an amazing feat when a holo polish looks just as lovely in the shade as it does in full sunlight. Lady of the Lake definitely does. In the shade it's a lovely, dark dusty violet with silver shimmer. Then you step into the sun and BAM! Holo.

I didn't get any good label shots of this- the metallic logo kept reflecting the green of my camera, and it looked very odd. But I'm sure everyone is familiar with the A England logo anyway! 

I kind of regret not snagging Perceval as well, but I was supposed to be on a no buy anyway :( Next time! Along with Dragon!

A England runs 9 pounds per polish, and worldwide shipping is available! Like them on Facebook as well: that's how I discovered the amazing sale!

ETA: On reading through this review, I don't feel like I really hyped up this polish enough. Both of the A Englands that I purchased are amazing: super smooth, fluid application. I probably could have gotten away with one coat of Lady of the Lake if I were a more careful painter. And it just shines! Absolutely a gorgeous polish, and I can't seem to find the words to describe it. Try it, and you'll know :)

Cheers, dears!
