Hey-o! I hope everyone had a fun Halloween. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my photo collage of my mermaid costume and nails. ;) Today I have a purple polish to show you that has quickly skyrocketed its way into my heart and onto my "Favorite Purples Ever" list.
"Crown of Thistles" - This warm magenta-purple is filled with scattered holographic particles and has a bit of a violet color shift that happens at certain angles. As I've come to expect with A England polishes the formula was an absolute dream and this was almost a one-coater. These photos show two coats plus top coat.
I was wondering how it would compare to other A England shades so I pulled out my collection. The closest one I have is "Lady of the Lake" which is pictured on the left above. In comparison, "Crown of Thistles" looks SO pink!
My thoughts? I adore this color. It's purple but it's also pink and the holographic shimmer is lovely. Every single A England polish I've ever tried has been mind-blowingly pigmented and easy to apply. This is one of those brands where I just know that every new shades they release will be impressive. If I could I would buy every single one! And just for fun, here's a quick photo of my A England collection:
From left to right here are the names: "Briar Rose," "Tristram Eyes/Princess Sabra," "Dragon," "Saint George," "Tristam," "Dancing With Nureyev," "Lady of the Lake," "Crown of Thistles," "Princess Tears," "Ascalon," and "Bridal Veil."
