Hello lovelies,

As you probably know by now British indie brand A England has recently introduced two new shades. The first shade is a re-vamped version of Holy Grail and the second one is a brand new shade called Beauty Never Fails. So let's have a look at both...

Lucy's Stash - A England Holy Grail and Beauty Never Fails

Holy Grail - antique gold with olive green undertones. The finish of this polish is shimmery metallic. Its formula is great as I would expect from A England polish. It applied very easily, the polish levelled itself out nicely and the pigmentation is excellent. I'm wearing two coats which are fully opaque. I've experienced very light streaking but that said is just be nit-picking. It dried reasonably fast and I did not use a topcoat as the polish was nice and shiny.

I will compare the original and this new Holy Grail in the next post.

Beauty Never Fails - dark green base with gold and olive green fine flecks. This shade is simply stunning! It is not as dark as the Gothic Beauties thanks to loads of the flecks that brighten the polish. The formula is really good - it just flows on the nail. The polish stayed where I've applied it meaning it's not watery. One thicker coat was almost enough for a perfect coverage but in the end I've applied second coat. Same as the Holy Grail, Beauty Never Fails also dried quite fast. The amount of flecks in the polish might cause more difficult removal.

Hello lovelies,

I'm still feeling the fall (or autumn for my UK readers ;) and I'm not ready yet to give in to the winter and Christmas preparations. That's why I have here a totally fall manicure! I really like the burnt orange shades with gold and copper glitter gradient.

I've used OPI Deutsche You Want Me Baby as a base colour and for the gradient tip I've used China Glaze I Herd That. The topcoat I've used was Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat.
