Today is the big day where the most anticipated new a england collection The Legends including six holographic/prismatic (Saint George, Dragon, Princess Sabra (Tristam Eyes), Princess Tears, Ascalon and Bridal Veil) and one glass fleck nail polish (Order of the Garter) is officially released. To celebrate this special day I am showing you one of my favorites from the The Legends collection today: Saint George – a mesmerizing and breathtaking emerald green or dark teal holo.
There could have been no better nail polish to come back with after my winter break.
There are not enough words to describe how much I love Saint George and how impressed I am by its color, depth, delicate holographic/prismatic shimmer and its formula. Saint George glides on like butter and is perfectly opaque with one coat. It is a bit thicker than Avalon or Perceval for example but I had no issues with the application. It almost applied itself.
The holographic shimmer is no strong linear holo but a gorgeous and soft scattered holo.
I have so much love for the brand a england and the wonderful person behind a england ♥ Adina. With The Legends she made the dream of many, many nail polish enthusiasts come true to see more holographic nail polishes beeing released. She listened to her customers, fans and friends and created a true masterpiece of a collection which accomplishs the perfect combination of the central theme behind a england with customer wishes. Thank you Adina for listening to all of us. ♥
You might have noticed that I wasn’t posting and wasn’t online on Twitter much in the last weeks and I am really sorry guys. Since November I was really stressed and I reached a point where all I could and needed to do after work and on the weekends was to rest. It went that far that I haven’t had nail polish on my nails for five weeks and before I hadn’t had naked nails in over two years I think. I decided to directly take a break till I felt better which now finally is the case. I think it’s important that if you do feel exhausted to take a break and not to force yourself to post because the worst case scenario would be to lose the fun in posting and quit blogging.
Now I am back full of motivation also because I finally have a lighting setup which now makes it possible for me to take pictures of holographic nail polishes without almost crawling into the lightbox and holding a separate halogen lamp. As great the indirect lighting of my four halogen lamps outside of the lightbox is for shimmers, cremes and especially duochromes it makes holos look like simple shimmers so I am beyond happy that I can show you the true beauty of holos much better now too.
Do you have a favorite a england The Legends nail polish already and what are you planning to haul from The Legends?
Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥
