[a-england] Lady of Shallot

I’m overwhelmed by a-england’s Gothic Beauties collection because this time of the year longs for darker shades – at least for me -, but instead of wearing just pure black, I like to add a bit of sparkle. At the beginning of this week, I decided to put Lady of Shallot on my nails (yes, it’s the tragic poem by Lord Tennyson, but sometimes I like drama). It’s awesome, both elegant and unique.

On the nails, it looks less blue, but the artificial light brings out the glitter. (Shown below is two coats with a top coat.)

Close up view. I could not stop staring at my nails, it’s true! 🙂

Daylight photos – a very dark blue with a subtle shimmer (but we know better 😉 ).
