a-england Princess Tears

I've got another a-england stunner for you today from The Legend Collection. Princess Tears is a pale purple linear holo with silver duochrome. Yes, holo AND duochrome in one polish! Obviously this is an amazing shade. If Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game and China Glaze OMG had a baby, it would probably look something like Princess Tears. This polish is beyond mesmerizing.









Pictures really don't do Princess Tears any justice at all. This is one of those polishes that really has to be seen in person to get the full effect of its beauty. The way it catches the light is just insane and the duochrome shows up more in person than in photos, where I couldn't quite manage to capture it. It was tough to get the duochrome and holo in the same shot, but trust me, they're both present and extremely lovely. The holo effect in this is quite strong, even in dim indoor lighting, and didn't seem to be dulled by topcoat. The base color shifts from light purple (almost a lavender-esque shade) to a more silvery shade depending on the angle. The duochrome shift, coupled with the holo, really makes this polish something special. I honestly cannot stop looking at it. The formula was excellent and I used two coats here.


This is another big winner for me from The Legend Collection. Dragon is insanely beautiful as well and I'm already branding this collection as one of my favorites of 2012--yes, I know it's only February but Adina really did something incredible here! Everything about this collection just screams luxe and I really can't gush about it enough. I can't wait to show you more of these stunning polishes!

  8. Oh my goodness. I just got in my first batch of a-england polishes, including this one, Ascalon, and Lady of the Lake. These are simply amazing. Just perfect polishes. They apply so nicely, dry quickly, feel smooth, and are just stunning to look at. I can't stop staring. I can't decide which one I like best!
