a-england Order of the Garter Swatches and Review

Hiya, 
Last night I recieved two comments from two lovelies saying that they would like to see OotG today and I have obliged, I'm so glad you wanted to see this because ooo it's gorgeous!
I honestly think this is my favourite out of my two a-englands :O! It's super shiny, sparkly, blue and for me the colour is something I genuinely would associate with England, it's like a dusty royal blue, the Queen would totally wear an outfit this colour ;). 
Again this is going to be pretty picture heavy

I don't know if you can tell but I love this colour! Like I said it's like a dusty royal blue with brighter blue sparkles that just make an amazing polish, when the light hits it it's mesmerizing. Really cannot stop looking at my nails they look so beautiful, this polish has made them a bit wider than they actually are, which for me is a good thing oh I don't don't know but I think my nails look perfect in this colour!! Haha. 
One thing that was less enjoyable was the brush, the bottom has been cut on a slant (on the wonk) so it looks normal from front but you can see the slant from the side, this just made applying it a bit awkward but it must have just been a mistake as my other brush was fine. I'm just being pernickety :P. The formula was great though, smooth as you like. It took a while to dry though. 


Stupidly I put my Models Own topcoat over it, for innocent reasons y'know I wanted it to stay shiny but when I woke up this morning, I had my first ever incident of bubbling! It's horrid, looks like my nails have a disease :( yuk. On top of that on my right hand I have these weird dents that look like tiny teeth marks :S BUT all of this is down to the topcoat not the a-england polish.


The weather man lied, as per, so there is no sign of sun today, it's super gloomy so again my a-england polish isn't getting the sun it deserves, this combined with bubbles and teeth marks means I shall (unfortunately) be removing her :(. I just can't wait for summer, then they will get the attention they deserve! :)


Phew, it's been a long one, I hope you made it till the end :) again I can't get enough of this brand, I seriously want Avalon from the Mythicals!! Another high recommendation :) :) Hope you enjoyed girls!

Oh my goodness I got those disease-looking bubbles on my thumb once and had to take it all off at once. I totally sympathize. Thank you SO much for doing OotG!! It's even more beautiful than I imagined. I will absolutely be adding this to my collection one way or another. :)
