a-england - She Walks In Beauty

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of a-england. Adina is celebrating her brand's second birthday today and I thought it was the perfect time to introduce one of the most recent shades, from the Heavenly Quotes collection, to all my readers: She Walks In Beauty.

I am not into gold or pink, but for some reason, after seeing the first swatches of this nail varnish, I felt it would be a nice addition to my ever-growing collection. Maybe it's because I don't actually own many glitters, but it appealed to me straight away.

The base is packed with an antique gold shimmer, which flashes a little green in certain light, and it has hexagonal pink glitter pieces in two different sizes.

I have The Knight base coat, two coats of each nail varnish (where applicable), a coat of She Walks In Beauty and The Shield top coat on on the many photos below.

On its own: 

Over Iseult: 

Over Guinevere:

Over Avalon:

Over Perceval:

Over Dorian Gray:

I aimed to show you a variety of options, but quickly realised I prefer how it looks over light colours. It would take two to three coats to achieve full opacity on its own.

Since the brand was launched, a-england has realeased many well-loved polishes to the market and I wish Adina and her team continued success!


  1. No es de mis tonos favoritos, pero que lindo queda sobre Guinevere!!!

  2. Concuerdo con Ana, sobre Guinevere es donde se luce más. Me lo imagino muy lindo como gradient sobre un color claro. Gracias por tantas fotos!

  3. Es lindo sobre todos los colores! Es mas Marta que Ceci igual jeje. Beso

  4. No me decía nada este color, ni se me pasó por la cabeza comprarlo, y ahora chau! Con estos swatches tiene tantas posibilidades que no sé si me va a alcanzar con uno,jaja.
    Muy lindos, en particular los colorados no son mi pasión. Y sobre Dorian Grey me gustó mucho.
