a-england Lady of the Lake

 Today is the last day to enter my giveaway!

I'm so glad a-england had their free shipping promo a little awhile ago because I really had a great opportunity to try an amazing brand. I mentioned this before, but Adina the founder is so kind. She is also truly passionate about her product. These are things I love about a company, and to top it off her polishes are spectacular.

As nail blogger, or as just a nail polish addict in general it's amazing how far those extra nice touches in a brand. When we purchase mainstream brands, we may get a great product, but it's not always followed with great service. That's not to say we get bad service, but obviously you're not going to get the personal touches from OPI or China Glaze that a smaller brand can offer you. These extra touches really make you feel special as consumer, and make you want to go back for more!

Without further ado..here is Lady of the Lake!

Lady of the Lake

Lady of the Lake is deep purple with scattered holo.

What I love about this besides that it's holographic, is the richness of the base color. I dislike how we see with more recent holos that the holo pigment totally engulfs and dulls out the base color. The purple in this is rich and deep. The holo in this is just complimenting this perfectly. It really is the perfect balance. You really can't go wrong with a color like this. I must say along with the blue holo Tristam, Lady of the Lake is definitely must have.

You can find a-england polishes on their website. They retail for £9.00 which equates to around $14.36. These are totally worth the price, even without free shipping. I know for many of us it would be special everyone-once-in-awhile purchase, but it's one I don't think you'd regret! 

Happy Friday!

  10. Gorgeous. I should have bought this when there was the free shipping but I only let myself buy one.. and I bought Perceval because I was obsessed with reds at the time.

  11. LOVE this - it's showing more navy than purple on my monitor and thus my mind goes to Essie Starry Starry Night. Some day I will have a few of this brand in my stash!!!
