When I first saw a press release for a-england polishes, I know I would have to end up trying some of these. I have to admit the price of these polishes is outside my normal budget, and with overseas shipping I knew I'd have to hold off on these beauties. Then a-england offered their free shipping promo through the month and June (which is now being extended to July 15th), and I took advantage of that opportunity to try this brand. I was not disappointed! Today, I have for you Tristam.
Adina, founder of a-england describes Tristam as a "night blue sky with starlight glimmer and glow".
I think it's pretty clear, that this color is absolutely stunning. The pigmentation is stellar, and the this shade of blue is beautiful.
Instead of talking about how great this color is, I want to talk about a-england as a polish brand. There is more to a brand than creating beautiful colors. That's only part of the deal. a-england already succeeds in that, but they succeed at other things too. This is what makes a-england extra special.
Adina, the founder is incredibly sweet and engaging with her customers,fans, and bloggers. She really goes the extra mile and making you feel welcome and appreciated. This is an experience you do not get with more popular brands, but it makes the world of difference.
Also, what I love about a-england is how whimsical and captivating the brand is. I've posted a few times, that some of my favorite nail polish colors are the ones that are connected to a memory or remind me of something special. a-england's Mythicals collection creates this magical story for you. Who hasn't been captivated by the story of King Arthur? It's one of those timeless legends that most everyone has heard of. Adina, has created a line of polishes that are not only beautiful, but give off the vibe of elegance and whimsy.
Needless today, it's all these elements that will keep me going back to this brand. I have a lot of respect for a small business. My father has owned a small business since 1989, and you have to have passion and drive to succeed. I see that with Adina and a-england. I'll keep going back for more free shipping or not. When you have a wonderful product along with amazing service and a great experience, it's worth every penny!
