Today I have swatches of what turned out to be probably my absolute favorite nail polish that I've tried to date. It's been in my collection for a while, but I (foolishly!) didn't get around trying it until recently, and I'm kicking myself for that now because it's just. so. GORGEOUS.
This is a-england Saint George, a deep, jewel-toned green, and I pretty much want to have it on my fingers all the time now. I know that most nail bloggers are very aware of a-england polishes, and a quick search reveals that this one has been swatched all over the place already, but I just couldn't resist posting my own pictures of it here.
The polish itself went on beautifully—two very easy coats, and it stayed right where I put it. (I could have easily gone with just one coat, but I like at least two coats on my nails because they're on the thin side.) The holographic elements are also beautiful: I couldn't stop staring at my own nails, especially in full-spectrum light.
The other cool thing about a-england polishes is that they're all inspired by amazing stories: check out Sam's amazing write-up over on Fashion Polish if you're interested in reading about what inspired Saint George and the other shades in this line. She did a much better job with it than I ever could!
