Realising that I haven’t added new colours to my A England stash for quite some time, I placed a small order and picked some varnishes of recent collections. So today I’m presenting If the Ravens Leave the Tower, which is a blue-ish petrol with a scattered holographic finish.
Happy to have new A England polishes again! Shown below is two coats.
I couldn’t decide which photos to pick, so here is a picture overload. These were taken with artificial lighting.
Hamburg was hit by heavy storms today – trains (and flights) were cancelled, and some underground and bus timetables are disrupted too. It has been raining all day. I’m glad that we went to Nienburg last weekend but hope that the graves will be fine (I might ask my friend or neighbours over there to check, once the weather clears up again). As for tomorrow, I expect the metro to be crowded … hope I’ll make it to my workplace safely and on time. It’s a wonderful job by the way, with great colleagues.
Season is getting more glittery, so here is Miss Universe, packed with blue and green (teal) glitter and, moreover, a purple shimmer. This isn’t available anymore, I regret. You might notice the old bottle design. But I’m still wearing this pretty colour from time to time, of course.
Two coats shown below.
One of my favourite Dior nail colours is Nirvana, a petrol green. Since the initial photos weren’t that good, here are better ones. Two coats shown below.
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’m waiting for A England’s Tudoresque to arrive – and have more or less applied colours I had worn before, more or less. That’s why I have finally better photos of beautiful Emerald, one of my Christmas favourites this year.
Close-up. This is such an amazing colour, in my view. It even seems to contain a hint of teal.
This is a real summer colour: Custom Kicks combines bright teal with golden microshimmer. The latter, however, is barely visible on the nails. But the shade is generally awesome.
Two coats applied. However, hard times after removal, i. e. stains. But the colour is worth it.
Now is a dark green with a visible proportion of teal, also containing shimmer due to glassflecks.
Application was to coats. Artificial light only, sorry …
Next China Glaze nail colour ready to be shown … Jagged Little Teal made it on my nails the same day it arrived (i.e. yesterday), since I immediately fell in love with this gorgeous teal.
Two coats applied.
It’s Mother’s Day today but I seriously did not have it in mind when picking Don’t Tell Mama last night. I rediscovered this blackened green, containing tons of teal shimmer, in my stash and was just in the mood for a darker colour.
Application was two coats.
Born to Be Wild, another birthday present I received from my daughter and my mother. And again they put much effort in selecting brilliant shades. Moreover, I like effect nail varnishes, especially when Christmas is near (and it is, less than one month to go 😯 ).This is an iridescent teal/petrol with metallic finish.
Two coats applied.
