On to the next Tudoresque nail varnish. I thought Katherine of Aragon (Henry’s first wife)would make a beautiful colour for the last days before Christmas. It’s an antique gold shade with a hint of taupe and containing holographic glitter, resulting in a scattered holo finish.
Two coats applied. Again, one coat would have been fine too, with regards to opaqueness.
I’ve got better (at least I think they are) photos of Amethyst. 🙂 Two coats.
Articifial light. It’s really an elegant plum shade.
Can’t believe that Christmas will be in less than one week. 😯 I have the feeling that time flies by …
Sorry for posting so many A England nail colours these days, but it’s the only brand I am currently wearing, since I am so addicted to the Tudoresque collection. 😉 Today’s nail varnish is Katherine Parr, again scattered holographic finish. Base colour is blue but with hints of lilac and a pink shimmer.
Two coats shown below. This, too, applies flawlessly and presents high opaqueness.
Natural light – even with direct sunlight.
I actually have the next Tudoresque nail varnish to present, Anne of Cleves. This is a very feminine colour, light pink with golden glitter. Scattered holographic effect.
Application was two coats. I messed a bit with the index, which is not the nail polish but the top coat. Anne of Cleves, too, is opaque with one coat.
Daylight (but cloudy).
As I had mentioned before I was expecting A England’s Tudoresque nail varnishes and can tell you now that I am totally into this collection. Here’s the first one I applied, Catherine Howard (the fifth and youngest wife of Henry VIII). The colour is teal with a scattered holo effect and golden bits of glitter.
This is actually a one-coater, so dense and opaque. Only because I am used to it, I applied two coats.
I recently remembered Sea Spray and was quite sure that I had already shown it – not really, only with It’s a Trap-eze as layering. So here is Sea Spray on its own, it’s dove grey with a slight shimmer.
Two coats applied. I liked this so much on my nails that I removed it only after three days, with no chipping and nearly no tip wear.

I am currently wearing Sprung and since it’s been a while since my last OPI post (I haven’t bought nail colour of this brand recently) I thought I could share this with you – although there is a already a blog entry. Nevertheless, I think that with its copper foil finish Sprung is made for this season. Hard to believe that it was actually released for Spring, isn’t it? 🙂
This is two coats.
Altough I am definitely no fan of winter or cold wheather, I am beginning to adapt to it. I still cannot say that I like being outside during rain or snow – but I go swimming regularly (I always loved swimming) and swim long distances, and I guess it helps coping with any season. I don’t feel that uncomfortable during winter anymore. Normally wintertime was equal to permanently suffering from a cold. 😉 But regardless of the wheater, I make my way to the swimming bath and realised that it’s probably only a matter of the right clothes. We’ll see!
