A-England - Princess Sabra & Dragon

Hi!

Sadly today we reach the end of the SWATCH-STRAVAGANZA :( Hopefully once I get my hands on some Gothic Beauties, I'll be able to show you more A-England!

These are two amazing holographics from the Legends collection. First up is Princess Sabra, a yellow-bronze (?) holographic. I was sooo close to not buying this, but once I heard the story of how it's supposed to be the same colour as Adina's cat, Tristam's, eyes, I had to have it! They completely remind me of the colour of a cats eyes and I tried to take a photo of this polish next to one of the cats, but they weren't having it! Oh well.

Two coats in all the photos below.

Plus a picture of one of the kittens that we only looked after for one night before they went to their foster carer. I don't think we even named this little guy, but I think he was part of a litter that we had to give a bath and we separated the ones that loved the water and hated the water into Cray Cray's and Normies. It's so weird when kittens like being bathed especially because it was the first time I'd seen it in real life!


Pretty sure this one was a Cray Cray haha

The final Legend I have for you guys is Dragon! It's a green holographic, similar to Saint George, but Saint George is more of an emerald green/teal while Dragon is lighter and more....Dragon-y. Honestly I don't think you can look at this and not think 'Dragon', it reminds me of all the movies where the dragon flies around and the sun shines off their scales.

Dragon can indeed be a one coater to all people who are in a rush! On my pointer and middle finger I've got 1 coat and on my ring and little finger I've got two. The extra coat makes it sightly darker and makes the holographic stand out a little bit more, but the difference isn't that big.

So no more A-England :( Well until I give in and buy all the Gothic Beauties + Bridal Veil!

You can buy A-England from their website here with free shipping, or you can go to Llarowe where she has some of the Gothic Beauties up already!

Next up I've got all the indie polishes that arrived in the past couple of weeks when I went nuts buying from Llarowe and Etsy haha.

See you next time!

  6. Wow, Dragon is really pretty. I'm sorry I passed on that one. I can't wait until you get some Gothic Beauties- I need to see more swatches of those. I'm sort of undecided.

    1. Me too! I'm worried about the photos and people saying that they look black in low light situations, but I'll definitely have to buy a couple to see for myself!

  10. Ahhhh my god, that kitty is adorable! Awwww. And I've never seen a kitten that liked being bathed! So strange.

    Oh, and the nail polish? Awesome! I have Dragon and love it, and after seeing your swatches, Sabra goes on my wishlist.
