a-england Week: Day 5 - Tristam

Another best seller, Adina advised me to get this little gem when I visited her in London. 

I can see why this would be popular: I haven't seen many navy blue holos before! This colour is so tasteful and the scattered holographic effect is so delicate... it's definitely beautiful.

I am starting to sound like a broken record here, but Adina is not compromising on quality. Did you know her nail varnishes are made in the UK and are B3F? The brushes are consistently good, pick up enough product and are easy to use. As with all other a-england products, I also like the shape of the cap, since it allows me to apply the polish with accuracy and minimal clean up.

Once again, this shade is very pigmented and you could possibly get away with one thick coat. It's bound to get noticed, so be prepared for compliments.

Tristam is like a starry Summer night: twinkling under open skies, yet unassuming when indoors. Simply stunning!

  1. Que linda descripción, una noche de Verano estrellada, tan poética como este esmalte. Es un azul precioso, esos reflejos turquesas al sol son una maravilla. Sin dudas las 2 Colecciones de A England son tan perfectas que nos dejan con ganas de más, no puedo ni imaginarme que bellezas estará creando Adina ahora

  2. Es un color mas que precioso!!! Con la descripcion me hiciste acordar al cuadro de Van Gogh.... :)
