A England Tristam & Saint George.

To say these polishes are gorgeous would be the understatement of the year...actually century?

I patiently waited for these polishes to arrive from A England's Thank You promotion and had a few stressful days in there where I thought I wasn't going to get these beauties at all. Apparently, Royal Mail (England's postal service) made a change a few days ago stating they they would no longer allow international shipping of nail polish...because it's a fire hazard to the plane. Erm, I'm pretty positive I've brought polish into my carry on as well as countless other women (or men) who had nail polish in their luggage. Seems a bit ridiculous to me, but oh well. Anyway, A England informed all of their customers of this change several days ago and I was fearful that my polishes were going to be stuck or destroyed until yesterday afternoon when they were happily waiting in my mailbox after their tumultuous journey! 

Up first is Tristam, a holographic midnight blue that makes me swoon. It's so incredible! 

Then we have Saint George and holy crap-ola! Are we being serious with these colors?? I can't even believe how stunning this is! Saint George practically leapt out of the bottle and onto my hand, begging to grace my nails with it's lovely green holo-ness. The application of this polish is up there with the best. Opaqueness after ONE coat! I did two, just for good measure and to add a bit more depth, but it would've have been perfectly alright without it. 
 These are the very first A England's that I've used and I couldn't be happier with them! Amazing quality and the customer service with the whole Royal Mail debacle was excellent. So happy to own these beauties! 

Happy Polishing :)
