I can finally show you the A England Ballerina collection that Adina kindly sent me for review. There weren't many sunny days so it took me a while to swatch these beauties. You're in for a real treat though!
The Ballerina collection is inspired by beautiful prima ballerina and Dame, Margot Fonteyn and her dance partner Rudolf Nureyev and consists of four elegant holographic shades.
Fonteyn - silver holographic with lavender undertones. Fonteyn is a beautiful subtle holo polish that might look like silver at first glance but more you look at it the more lavender undertones you'll see. It was the first shade I reached for and tried because it somehow grabbed my attention. It looks gorgeous and all I could think of is winter wonderland.
Dancing with Nureyev - blue holographic with purple undertones. This is another wintery shade that just begged me to paint some icicles on them (and I did ;). The shade is blue but leaning towards cool-tones purple. However it transforms into dusty blue full of rainbow sparkles in the direct sunlight. Magical!
Encore Margot - frosty silver holographic shade. This is a classic silver holo slightly leaning towards blue undertones. It is not strong 'in your face Nfu Oh' holo effect but subtle and soft.
Her Rose Adagio - beige holographic with rose pink undertones. If you love office-friendly shades with some hidden effect, this one is a winner! It looks elegant and subtle under artificial light but once you get out of your office into the sunlight you'll want to stare at your nails forever! The holographic effect really makes this polish stand out.
Now to the formula - it didn't disappoint my high expectations. It applied easy like butter and the finish was smooth and streak-free. I didn't even have to worry about the drying time as they dried fast and glossy. I have applied top coat over all swatches but it didn't make that much difference.
I'm loving this collection and you can expect some nail art over them coming your way soon!
Have a lovely day!
Love, Lucie x
