a-England Queen Of Scots

a-England have recently released a new collection of polishes - Elizabeth & Mary Collection. I ordered them last week and this the the first one I tried.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 2 mins a coat). It is a gorgeous deep jewel blue colour. The formula is quite thick but applies okay and the brush is good. Lasted really well.
***upon removal had some staining, I the tried the foil method and still had slight staining on the nails***

Removal = easy with foil method but still get staining on the nails
Overall = 8/10

My Personal Rating = 8/10 :-)

    1. I must admit, I do love blue polishes as well - dark, medium and light!!! It really is and I love it despite the staining! You really must :-D

  12. Lovely navy blue! Too bad about the staining... Personally I find very quick swipes of 100% acetone works best, I think if you let the remover sit on your nails with the foil method it soaks in and stains more
