a-england Galahad and some subtle stamping

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! Hope you are all doing well! I'm so sad that the Olympics are almost over! I'm trying to enjoy the last bits today. Even now I'm watching the volleyball bronze medal match as I type this. Last night was amazing! It had me glued to not one, but two screens and I still didn't see everything  I wanted to see. Today I have another a-england beauty to show you. I'm telling you this brand doesn't cease to amaze me every day!

Galahad is a dusty turquoise creme. I've seen this color called "a blue" by some people but I don't think that's accurate. The a-england website calls it a "mystic vibrant blue green". That's a great description since this color is the perfect mixture of blue and green. It's also dusty and refined, making it a color that could be worn by anyone.

The formula is just lovely and very pigmented. Depending on the thickness of your coats, you could get away with just one. I did two thin ones instead. It dries to a shiny finish but I still like to put on some top coat to make it extra shiny. So my photos are with top coat.

After wearing it for one day, I decided to do some subtle stamping using another a-england polish, the beautiful holo duochrome Ascalon. The theme for this week's Adventures In Stamping challenge was "using two stamps", so I used an image from plate FUN 2 on almost all fingers and one from CH14 on the ring finger. I just love geometrical pattern paired with the holo finish! 

The holo effect is not that evident in my pictures and the contrast between these two colors is not that big in real life. But you know that I love subtle stamping so I loved this! I was also surprised to see how well Ascalon stamps. So if you consider getting some a-england polishes, don't hesitate! They have amazing formula and they are also great for nail art, so you can use them all the time! 


  1. Wow, such an unusual pretty colour! Beautiful choice of stamp too, it's really nice over that polish.

  2. I love a subtle stamp... super classy and a great color too!

  3. Thank you! I wasn't sure people were going to like it. I just love geometric patterns!
