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

A England "Perceval"

Perceval visits Mayfair Market
