aEngland holographic

aEngland Saint George

Monday, 19 March, 2012

This is my first venture into aEngland…come see what I think!

First off, this formula is superb! It was literally opaque in one medium coated swipe and it dried within five minutes. You can’t ask for more than that, can you? I, however, did two coats to be safe.

My first impression was that the holographic on this wasn’t strong at all in either shade or sunlight, which was a disappointment because it was subtle. So subtle that the camera could barely capture it. I was so hoping that it would be strong and linear, making people go, “ohhh…ahh….oh! What color is that? It’s fabulous!!!” It’s still gorgeous, but subtle. So while I was disappointed in the lack of holographic, I was blown away by the fact it is a teal holographic. I haven’t really been a big fan of teal before because I thought it didn’t look good on me, but I’ve found that isn’t necessarily true. Come and have a look!

 You can see the holographic dying to come through here, but the light isn’t hitting it quite right. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture it. Lame, I know. I tried.

On the ring finger you can see the holographic just dying to come out, but the cloud that started to pass over totally denied this polish from totally showing you in its full glory.

I believe that on a perfectly sunny day or indoors with the proper lighting, this polish can really out do a lot in my collection and I fully intend to wear this again on a beautiful spring or summer day.

    Such a pretty color! I am really lemming this collection. Are you going to try it again now that the sun is shining? It looks like it has a lot of potential 😀

    That is seriously gorgeous! I wish I picked up that color when I ordered Lady of the Lake and Dragon. ^_^
