Hi girls!

today I have here real eye candy for you! My first A England polish I've ever tried - Lady Of The Lake!

If you haven't heard about A England brand before it's a real shame, the polishes are just great! A England is a creation of Adina Bodana. The A England launch was just on the 8th January 2011 so it's a very young nail polish brand, it is 3 free and salon quality formula, not tested on animals. The current collection is not extensive but there should be more shades in the future. But I can tell you now that there are some awesome polishes there! Oh and there is free worldwide delivery!!!

Lady Of The Lake - cool-toned hologhraphic purple. The holographic particles are tiny and the rainbow effect is not over the top and that makes this shade useable for a daily wearing. I have many holographs with strong holo effect so it's nice to have something subtle as well.

The formula is really great! The pigmentation is good so I applied the first thicker coat and was really hesitant if I need to apply the second coat. I did so there are two coats in the pictures :) Polish dried quite fast and was easy to apply. I wore this polish for 4 days and experienced really minor chipping, basically just the edges of the nails. So another point for the long lasting formula. Removal was easy as well, no annoying holo particles on my cuticles.

Overall this is definitely must have polish if you like purples!

I'm a little bit late with OPI Miss Universe Collection but the shades are beautiful so I will still review them :) Today It's My Year. I picked up this shade at the Olympia beauty exhibition in September so this poor little baby was sitting in the drawer waiting to be used.

It's My Year - Cool toned purple with gold shimmer leaning to pink. The final finish looks like it's shimmery foil and it looks very nice. Formula of this polish is a little bit worse than I am used to with OPI products. The pigmentation is not that good, I had to use three coats for the full coverage and polish also dries slow. I haven't used any topcoat & basecoat for this swatch. When I was removing the polish I had gold shimmer everywhere so next time I'll use foil technique just to remove the polish with one wipe.
