A-England - Holy Grail

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!  It's Friday, whew!  I'm so ready to start the weekend.

In the next few days, I'll be sharing my first A-England's with you all.  I purchased these polishes during their after-Christmas sale.  They are all from the Mythicals collection, which I know have been shown around the blogger world for some time, but I'd still like to share mine with you all.

Today, I have swatches of Holy Grail.  I'll be honest, I had no intention of purchasing this polish initially, because it's not the typical color I go for.  However, the lovely Esther from Fab Fingertips strongly encouraged me on twitter to give Holy Grail a try because she thought it would go well with my skin tone.  So I decided to give it a try.  I am so happy that I did because I love the way it looks on me.

Holy Grail is a beautiful gold shimmer polish with a metallic finish.  It has a great formula and applied smoothly and evenly.  Two coats were required to be fully opaque.  In the swatches below, I used no base or top coat.

Look at that beautiful shimmer!
This is definitely one gold I will be wearing again!

What do you guys think of Holy Grail?  Do you have this one yet?

  8. Until I saw this swatch I never realized how similar this looks to China Glaze Champagne Bubbles. Wow, I don't know why that dupery shocked me.

    1. I never thought of that. They do look similar, but I don't have Champagne Bubbles to compare it to.

  9. I just got my first few A England polishes myself. Didn't pick this one as anything that leans too warm looks absolutely terrible on me. But you wear this warm gold so well, Marisa! :)
