It had all the criteria I love in a polish: it’s dark, it’s shiny and has green in it. I went into with preconceived notions – mostly that it would be like Emerald Sparkle from China Glaze, but it wasn’t. aEngland Tess d’Urbervilles is dark and oh-so-mysterious…in a way that made my heart go pitter patter.
This is part of The Gothic Beauties collection that aEngland released in Fall 2012. The colors truly are Gothic Beauties. I will be showing more of them later on.
Application was so easy – two medium-thin coats and this color was good to go. It dried quickly with a medium glossy shine. I slapped on some Poshe top coat to get to really bring out the beauty.
I love how this color is subtle and not in your face. It’s quite the dark horse. I wore this color a few times and received several compliments. YAY! That’s always a good thing, right?
The shade shot of this is nice and mellow – it looks black with green flecks. Very respectable. Yet you can still see the bit of green dying to come and shine. When in the sun, it’s like the sun drowns out the green and leaves it to simmer gently…making the once black with green flecks blend into one, the colors working together making you wonder if it’s really green or black or a black green. It is really swoon-worthy.
