Hello lovelies,

 

I have decided that this whole week will be dedicated to A England and the new 'To Emily Bronte' collection. Every day I'll show you one of the new shades and there will be time for nail art and giveaway too so stay tuned!

 

About To Emily Bronte collection: 'The collection of 5 shades is dedicated to the author of the worldwide famous English gothic novel Wuthering Heights: translated in many languages, adapted in movies, theatres and TV series; and subject of famous poignant song by Kate Bush.'

 

Today I want to introduce you to Cathy, 'ghostly, eerie white grey holo with an illusory flash of blue the unhappy tormented female protagonist fluctuating as a ghost after her tragic and premature death'.

Cathy is gorgeous and elegant pale lavender grey with very fine holo and iridescent blue shimmer particles. I'm wearing two coats and no topcoat, the polish is still nicely glossy on its own. I found the formula to be little bit thicker than the rest of the collection which caused me to have few issues with application. If applied thinly, the polish can be a bit patchy as it dries fast. Therefore I had to start applying it thicker and that solved the problem. As you can see, the final look was great even without topcoat and nobody would probably guess I had some problems.

 

This thicker formula isn't usual for A England as almost every polish I've tried before was flawless. But all in all, nice polish that just needs a bit of a practice to use, that's all. Tomorrow I'll show you another shade from To Emily Bronte collection so stop by ;)

 

To Emily Bronte collection is available at A England website or from one of the international distributors.

 

Hope you've enjoyed the post and have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I have a weekend treat for you in the form of new video tutorial for today's Marbled & Framed nails! I wore these nails to the Barry M event last month. People seemed to like it (or at least what they could see because it was very dark in there) and fellow blogger Amelia (xameliax) wanted a tutorial so here it is!

 

Let's have a look at the nail design I'll be creating first..

Don't be scared, I didn't change my nail shape completely! :D This is my right hand where I'm currently testing round/almond nail shape whilst still having square shape on my left hand (as you'll see). I've chosen to do this design specifically for the almond shaped nails but liked it so much that I've left it on and did it on my other hand for the event. So basically you get a unique chance to see the same design on two nail shapes ;)
