About Me

My photo
I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. I have also started wildlife photography, which I enjoy very much. Welcome to my little world :-)

a-england Dragon

Another a-england polish. Thought I'd give this greeny holo one a try. I was hoping the sun would be out, but no such luck.

Natural light.

Artificial light.

This is easy to use and easy to apply. The brush is very good and it's quick drying. I found my bottle to be quite thick formula but it handled well. It's got a subtle holo effect that would have looked better if the sun was out! Lasted well.

Easy to use = 9/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 10/10
Lasted well = 9/10
Coats = 2
Finish = shiny
Removal = easy
Overall = 9/10

My Personal Rating = 7.5/10


  1. Pretty. Really pretty. I've ordered one A England holo :)

    1. It is! Did you order this one or another?

      I love a-England polishes :-D

  2. Another, but I'd like this one too. 48,50 zloty, that's the cost of one :/

    1. Cool, I'll look forward to your post! :-)

      They normally cost £9 over here with free shipping so that sounds about right!

    2. Cool I'll look forward to your photos :-)

    3. The shop has had a break till today so we have to wait. There's cloudy and rainy today and the weather gone bad during last week so no chance for Dragon, no problem I had to wait. Actually I know only one shop online in Poland that sells some a-englands.

    4. It's annoying when that happens! No chance for holos for me either - the weather is poor! One shop - that's not bad! :-)

    5. Exactly. For example, I painted my nails in a holo Colour Alike. The sun seemed to be for a whole day. When my nails were dry I tried to take some photos and the sun became weak, so the holo effect in pics will be less strong. Now it disappeared completely, rays of sun, I mean ;) Argh! I'm going to clean a window :P , no more holo photos today ;)

    6. Haha that's does happen to me a lot too! Just when you think it's a perfect day the sun decides to hid - must know we've got a holos on ;-)

      I've got two I want to wear - just waiting for the sun to come out lol!

      I keep hearing there is going to be a heatwave, soon, in the UK. But I'm thinking it's more England/Wales rather than Scotland! A heatwave in Scotland, yeah right more chance of pigs flying ;-)

  3. That sounds as if the sun in Scotland was a very rare thing :O

    Now the sun is in its full glory and I covered my nails in a glittery top coat so the holo isn't visible. Weather :P

    1. Haha it is very rare! Scotland is know for the rain lol ;-)

      Typical! lol

    2. No wonder you like colours ;)

    3. Lol yeah and easier to photograph! :-)
