a-england The Complete Holos

Morning everyone!

I have something I am very excited to show you all today, and it is not a polish you haven't seen before, here or on other sites.  But I was doing my nails last night and simply could not decide which polish to wear, and when I am in that mood I generally gravitate towards my a-england, especially the holo polishes, as I know I will find something to suit my mood, that does not require a lot of effort to apply.  But not even a single a-england jumped out at me, so was originally going to pick two to alternate, then it was like a little lightbulb went off, why not wear *all* the holos!!

So thats what I did, and thats what I have to show you now.  As you may be aware there are only eight a-england holos so I done both thumbs with Camelot (not pictured but here is my original post)  and then took my holos out and started on my left hand pointer and went from there to pinkie, then from right hand pointer to pinkie, in the order the holos are on the a-england site.  This is how my a-englands are stored in my helmer anyway, so didn't take much effort to work out the order to paint, and here is a picture of all the pretty holos lined up.


I will just say this now so don't have to keep saying it, each nail has 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield (which is the bottle I am holding).  I will also link to the full post on each polish when I name them.

First here is my Left hand, which you are all very familiar with by now, so from pointer to pinkie we have:

Saint George, Dragon, Princess Sabra (Tristam Eyes) and Princess Tears.





And then we have something I don't think you have ever seen on here, my right hand, which as you can probably tell, isn't as used to being posed for pictures!  Again from pointer to pinkie we have:






Then since I got a tripod for my camera yesterday too, we have a picture of both hands just 'cause I can.


Now I hope you liked looking at my pictures of this mani as much as I love wearing it, I think I will be keeping this on as long as possible!!

All these polishes can be purchased directly from a-england for £9 (with free shipping) or also at Llarowe for $12.

So I will leave you now with one last pretty holo picture to say goodbye...


Thank you for looking and please leave me a little comment to let me know your thoughts on my holo skittle nails.

Some of the products in this post were sent to me for review.

  7. So beautiful!! Do you think the Shield coat took any of the holo color away after applying? Shield is a topcoat I'm thinking, most topcoats hide the holo shininess. =/

    1. Thank you Chrissy. I don't think the Shield took away any of the holo effect, I know this is the case with some holos/topcoats but I didn't notice it here xx
