My little blog turned three at the start of August and I had arranged a little giveaway with the always lovely and generous Adina of a-england. She has so kindly agreed to donate 4 of her stunning polishes to the winner of my birthday giveaway, and even more exciting that the winner will get to pick the 4!!
Now if you aren't already familiar with a-england you really should be - in my humble opinion - so this is a great chance to try them out...... or if you have been lusting after some to add to your collection but not managed to get them yet, here you go...or if you already own them all, get some back ups! Ha!
For anyone who doesn't know about a-england Adina started up the company a good few years ago now with the explosive first collection, The Mythicals. She has continued to wow with further collections - The Legend, Gothic Beauties, Burne-Jones Dream, Ballerina and the stand alone collection Heavenly Quotes. As part of the initial collection she also launched the Knight and Shield which are the only top and base coat I will use now since I got them a few years ago.
Now in total, across all of these collections, there are 43 polishes....45 if you include the top and base. And I am lucky enough to have all of these in pride of place as part of my polish collection. I have shown all of there on the blog, some many times, but I decided to help you choose (and to show them all off again) I would have a little swatchathon.
So without further ado, here are all of the a-england polishes..... Just so I don't have to keep saying it, every swatch is 2 coats of the polish without a top or base coat. I love the way a-englands apply, just like butter and always look flawless! I won't list all the descriptions, just the names, but you can head to the a-england site for some more information on any of these.

Starting with the Mythicals - King Arthur, Excalibur, Excalibur Renaissance and Merlin.
