a-england Ophelia

I have for you today the first of the Gothic Beauties, Ophelia, named for the tragic character in the William Shakespeare play, Hamlet.

As with most of the a-englands application was smooth and effortless and if you could probably get away with 1 coat.  Ophelia has a blackened base with a purple shimmer.

But here is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of Ophelia and 1 of the Shield.

I love this polish, and the inspiration behind it, but I also love that when I hear the name it reminds me of one of my favourite artists, Emilie Autumn who has an album called Opheliac.

She is maybe not to everyones taste but I love her, for her music and her writing and her presence.  But anyway, thats just a little incite into me......

a-englands can be purchased from the official site  or from Llarowe at the time of writing this the Gothic Beauties are not available on either site, so to order email Adina -

The product in this post was sent to me for review.


  1. Beautiful and love the inspiration behind Adina's gothic beauties :)

    Even though my husband will put me out on the street, I NEED this collection! <3 it!!
