A England Princess Tears and St. George Review and Swatches

A England Princess Tears and St. George Review and Swatches

More Llarowe Purchases!  Seriously, I am addicted to her site and have yet to come across a purchase I was disappointed with.  Last week she made a post on Facebook that a shipment of A England came in and a polish had spilled in the box and got nail polish on the bottles of 3 different colors she had (she had multiples of each color too) and that if anyone was interested in a great deal on the exterior damaged bottles to email her.  Somehow I was quick enough to be one of the lucky people to email first and I got 1 bottle of each for $6.00 a piece.  How could I pass up getting 50% off on A England polishes that just had some polish stains on the outer bottle?  A few days later I had the 3 gorgeous polishes in my hot little hands.  Not only that, Llarowe cleaned the freaking bottles!  You can’t even tell they HAD polish spilled on them!  SCORE!  To be honest, I didn’t even know what 3 colors I was buying but I’m not one to pass up a deal so I looked up swatches after I paid – then I got even more excited about my purchase!

Tonight I decided to swatch Princess Tears and St. George, the third bottle is Elaine and I will swatch that gorgeous lady on another night soon.

A England Princess Tears is an amazing silvered lilac holographic polish.  This was so hard to photograph.  I kept getting silver looking pictures so I had to keep angling my hand around trying to get the flash of lilac.  I finally got some of the lilac to show.  It really is a more obvious lilac in person though.  The holographic properties in Princess Tears  is very subtle.  It doesn’t jump out at you, but to me this is a very classy color that can be used at almost any type of gathering without being too much or too little.  I used two coats for Princess Tears.  The second picture shows the flash of lilac.

The second A England swatch I did tonight was St. George.  St. George is a gorgeous teal holographic nail polish.  This. Is. Gorgeous.  I have seen swatches of this polish all over the place but I seriously did NOT understand just how beautiful it was until I was gliding it onto my nails.  Again, the holographic of this is subtle, no linear effect but a nice scattered holo.  It’s dark, its sparkly and it isn’t like any other polish I own.  I only used two coats of St. George but even on the first coat I could have stopped and slapped a top coat on and have been good to go.

From the two polishes I swatched tonight, I am in love with this brand.  Application, formula and color were amazing.  I cannot think of ANY complaints regarding them, which is why I already have 2 more in my cart and ready to be purchased.

Princess Tears and St. George are part of A England’s The Legends Collection and retail for $12.00.  The bottles are .4 Fl Oz (Opi, Zoya and China Glaze are .5 fl oz) so they are close to normal size.

A England can be found in Llarowes shop at shop.Llarowe.com

**The polishes in this review were purchased by me.  All opinions stated are my own.**
