It's the weekend and time for some more one stroke flowers and a beautiful polish :)
A England is a UK indie brand that I'd actually never ordered from before even though it's probably the most well known. I was informed by some of my lovely nail friends that as the brand was turning 3, there was a sale on, so it was the perfect opportunity for me to finally get my hands on some! Described as; "Hardwearing nail varnish collection with distinctive gloss inspired by the enchanting spirit of England and its myths through unusual and sophisticated shades."
It took me a while to choose some to buy because they all looked so tempting but I ended up with 4. The first one I have to show you is the really pretty Princess Tears, from the Legend collection. It's a beautiful lilac, duochrome, holohraphic polish and just love the description on the site; "As the twin lilac trails of tears stream with an incandescent glow down our doomed heroine's face, they are made even more poignant by luminous grey/ green flashes."
Application was just perfect! I managed to apply this with two easy coats and no clean up and I was so tired when I did it so it's amazing it wasn't all over my hands. Swatches below show two coats with one coat of HK Girl topcoat.
For the flowers I decided to go for a purple/pink because this polish has a lovely pinky/purple flash to it in certain lights. I used acrylic paints and a flat brush to paint some one stroke flowers. I just love this technique :)
