After seeing me bore on on twitter about wanting to try some polishes from this range, my boyfriend finally decided to shut me up kindly bought me a couple – so that means that there will be at least another post about this range (although, in all honesty, there are several I now “need”)
Now, if you, like me, took a look at the website (HERE), swooned over the colours but then blanched at the prices, I’m here to tell you that these nail polishes are actually worth every penny. Well, the one’s I’ve tried are anyway…
The first one I tried is “Princess Tears” – a lilac glow with grey/green duochrome effect. This is quite a complex shade though, as not only is it duochrome, it also has a holographic finish to it in the right light.

The wear on this polish was fantastic – these pictures were taken on day 4 after applying – I did not use a top coat (because I am a lazy mare really, and I hate waiting for polish to dry…) and there is only minimal tip wear.
Application was easy, and the polish didn’t show brush marks, and there was no dragging when applying a second coat – the website recommends three coats for a “glasslike” finish, but I applied two and felt that the colour density and coverage was perfect.
Drying time was average, but that’s fine when it wears this well…
An outstanding polish which scores top makes from me in terms of the holy trinity of polishes – formula, colour and wear time. Oh, and as for the price tag – they retail at £9 each online with free P&P – I’ve bought more expensive bottles of OPI limited edition holo polishes, and been far less impressed than I am with these… The range is also cruelty free – I emailed the owner who was happy to confirm this.
Love, and will definitely be purchasing more. Highly recommend this range!
Have you tried any A-England polishes? Were you as impressed as I am?
