A England has a brand new addition to the Heavenly Quotes collection - The Blessed Damozel. Adina kindly sent me a bottle to try and I'm pleased to say that the pictures came out nicely ;)
The Blessed Damozel is inspired by the vision in a poem by Dante Gabriel Rossetti; the verses read:
"The blessed damozel leaned out
From the gold bar of Heaven;
Her eyes were deeper than the depth
Of waters stilled at even;
She had three lilies in her hand,
And the stars in her hair were seven."
The Blessed Damozel is a deep eggplant purple with subtle shimmer yet it doesn't look like black in low light. The purple is blue-based and vampy yet it still looks feminine. I must commend Adina on the formula, it's like butter - it flows on so smoothly and easily, truly a joy to work with! It was almost fully opaque in one coat but it was perfect in two. It dried fast and smooth but it wasn't spectacularly glossy so I applied topcoat (as I would anyway for a manicure).
This truly is another great creation, colour and formula-wise and I'm grateful I could wear it on my nails. And trust me, I don't say this lightly. If you would like your own bottle you can purchase it directly at A England website or from one of the international distributors.
Hope you've enjoyed the post and I hope to see you soon! Lucie x
