I still have a few A England shades to share with you and what better occasion than the Holiday season to feature beautiful shimmers and glitters?
Today, silver and gold have the place of honor so please let me present to you :
Excalibur : the magic sword
The legendary, magnificent sword of King Arthur. Attributed with supernatural powers.
Holy Grail : the most mystical of objects
The symbol of supreme grace with miracolous power whose quest is the highest spiritual pursuit.
Excalibur isn't your typical silver foil. Actually sort of looks like a foil but I would rather call it a textured metallic. It reminds me of those intense metallic silver marker pens I used to have : so sparkly and opaque, unlike any of my other foils. Fromula was just perfection, opaque in one coat, saturated to the max and brushstrokes free. If you love silver nail polish, there's no hesitation you need Excalibur in your life, if only for nail art or stamping.
Holy Grail is an intense yellow based gold metallic. Formula was different from Excalibur and required a second coat but applied nicely and evenly for a fast drying finish. I'm usually not a fan of gold polish but I find myself liking it more every day and Holy Grail's antique sparkle is spectacular.
