100th post: a-england Tristam

Hello lovelies! This is it! I have posted 100 times on this blog! These 3 months have been so much fun and I really want to thank all my readers because I couldn't have done it alone. It's an honor for me to be part of such an awesome community and I'm glad I've met a lot of fabulous people trough this blogging experience. 

I wanted to celebrate my 100th post by posting something beautiful and what better polish than Tristam. It has been on my wishlist for so long and I couldn't resist ordering it a few weeks ago during the 20% sale. Of course my photos don't do it justice and of course I didn't have any sun while wearing it. I did my best and maybe I will revisit it later and take better pictures.

Tristam is a gorgeous deep blue with a shimmer that gives it a scattered holographic effect. It's very hard to capture on camera, but so much more beautiful in person. I did 2 coats for opacity and drying time was very fast. It dried very shiny, but I did put a top coat on to make it last longer and dry even faster. 

The first two pictures were taken in my light box and you can see the holo effect is not visible at all. So I tried photographing in direct light to capture it. The next two pictures show the holo better. Please click to enlarge! 

I really love this polish and I'm so glad I got it. It reminds me of a starry sky and it's just so elegant. I think every blue lover should have a bottle of this (or two if it gets discontinued). So what do you think? 


  1. Yayyy!!!! Congrats on 100 posts! Tristam is such a beautiful polish! I'm actually going to post it soon myself. I'm so in love with it. Looks great on you!

  2. Thanks! I can't wait to see your post!

  3. It's beautiful. I would have bought it too but I think these polishes are a bit too expensive :/ Maybe one day I'll get some of them :P

    1. They do have promotions from time to time. You should keep an eye on their facebook/twitter!

  4. I have this and just love it!! Truly love it!

  5. Isn't this just such a beautiful polish, I love everything about it!
