NAILS | A England Symphony in Blue and Silver...and Cats

The summer A England Collection is HERE! I know there are a number of companies that do holographic polishes now, but there is always something incredibly classy about the way A England does it and no, it's not because I'm saying it in my head with a British accent! I find that the collections are never repetitive and though holos make up a large number of their releases, there have been cremes, glitters and duochromes as well. The collections are always smaller which I appreciate because how many times have you seen a nail polish release with 8-12 "new" shades. There are only so many ways to do a nude or red so nothing ever really feels new except for the combination of colours. Never the case with A England!

This summer's A Sargent's Vision Collection is named after the American painter John Singer Sargent who specialized in the Edwardian era. I will be working my way through the collection of four polishes over the next week or two, but for today we will start with the first polish that caught my eye - Symphony in Blue and Silver* ($15.50 CDN) which is a powder blue holo with shimmers of green and silver.

The first coat was a little patchy, but a second coat of polish fixed most of the patchy areas with some of my nails requiring a thin third coat. A England polishes are usually two or even ONE coaters so this one was a bit more work than I am used to, but it was still stunningly beautiful.

What better way to spruce up a holo than adding in some kitty water decals! I picked these up from Born Pretty awhile ago and haven't had a chance to use them yet so yay!
