A-England Avalon and Tess D'Urbervilles

Greetings All!

While I've been off work this week I've been having a thorough sort through of my nail polish, and I found these 2 in my untried pile (which is still slowly getting smaller!). All of my 'tried' polish is now either in my Helmer, or on a display stand. Getting it tidy has definitely motivated me to get it all swatched and organised!  I may be throwing some swatch spam your way soon!

Today though, 2 polishes from a-england. First is Avalon, from the Mythicals collection. This is a magenta purple shimmer that applied very nicely. This is 2 coats.

I've adjusted the last picture to try and get it more colour accurate. Apologies for the 'bubbles' - I've also been sorting/testing out my top coats. This one failed!

I like this, but I don't love it. I don't tend to wear shimmer polishes very often - they always look prettier in the bottle. It is quite a nice colour though.

Next we have Tess D'Urbervilles, which is green glitter in a black base from the Gothic Beauties collection. This is also 2 coats.

I had problems with Ophelia just looking black (you can see it HERE), but I had no such issues with Tess. Plenty of deep green shimmer lighting up the black. I really like this. Black has been my favourite nail polish for nearly 15 years, but I am starting to develop a taste for polishes that are black, but with a little bit more. This is definitely one of those!

  1. Agh no! I convinced myself I didn't need Tess! Looking at your swatches, I think I need to change my mind asap!


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
