A England – Tudoresque collection

The new Tudoresque collection from A England. As usual Adina has done a fabulous collection. This one surprised me as it's 8 beautiful new shades. In almost 3 years now as a stockist I haven't seen such a large release all in one go although quite a lot of shades have been discontinued recently so … Continue reading A England – Tudoresque collection

Final shot, love this picture too. Such a perfect rose and these were my two best nails as well

Valentines nails 2017

I don't actually celebrate Valentines but oh well, sometimes you just have to go with the flow and do the nails anyway. Plus I got caught on my way to work by our local BBC radio "out on the streets" guy and did a 30 second interview in exchange for a rose which was the … Continue reading Valentines nails 2017

I've become a huge fan of a gradient recently and I still love combining it with a clean stripe too so I did a full A England based one a little while ago.

Green A England Gradient

Ok so my clean up here wasn't great. I think I got my liquid latex on the nail a bit and then just failed with sponging on the gradient too but never mind. The colours are gorgeous I think and I really loved this manicure. I applied Excalibur Renaissance first over a base coat then … Continue reading Green A England Gradient

Nude blobbicure

I'm currently wearing this lovely little manicure that is halfway between a dotticure and a blobbicure. Not intentionally but because I am so used to applying thin coats of polish that I didn't do a thick enough … Continue reading Nude blobbicure

In Robe and Stripes

Happy New Year to everyone! Let's kick this off with the first nail post of the year. This is the design I went for over New Year's Eve although I didn't get a chance to do clean up properly as I was getting shoved out the door by my boyfriend. I wouldn't mind but we … Continue reading In Robe and Stripes

I think the gold polish may be A England's "Princess Sabra". No clue on the other polishes! My plan was to make a fiery looking gradient and I was quite pleased with this, particularly the way the glittery accent nail caught the light

Random nail art

Morning everyone, I've been having a bit of a tidy up in my pictures folder and found some random nail art that I've never posted due to only having one (not always great) picture of it so I thought why not have them all in one post? I probably won't remember what polishes were used … Continue reading Random nail art

Natural daylight bottles and swatches, here you can really see the differences

Perfect Pinks – an A England comparison

Since I did one for all the purples and because it was requested I have done a quick comparison of 3 of the pinks available at the moment from A England. This was requested by Jess after viewing the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection "Tennyson's Romance" and is something I had thought of doing anyway as "Shall … Continue reading Perfect Pinks – an A England comparison
