A-england Saint George

Hello lovelies and happy Sunday! I have another A-england beauty to show you today. I'm very proud of myself because I posted every single day this week. I'm starting school again tomorrow so there won't be so many posts up on the blog. I still hope to do at least 4 every week, fingers crossed I have time. Enough with the blabber, I've got important stuff to talk about.

Saint George has been on my wishlist ever since it came out. I'm happy to say it was worth the wait and it's all that I've imagined and then some. The only problem is, it's so hard to photograph. I've tried every possible angle and lighting and none of the pictures really show the complex beauty of this polish. I've selected my favorites from the approximately 50 photos I've taken. I apologize for the randomness of these photos. I don't even remember when or how they were all taken because I've tried literally everything.

I think the photo above captures Saint George the best. The color is a dark teal that leans very green. The fine light green shimmer has a very subtle holographic effect. It didn't show up in my photos and I didn't have proper sun. I only managed to get one decent sun picture and it's the one below.

In terms of application, this polish is on the thicker side. It's very opaque so it can be a one coater if you apply it carefully. My first coat had a few mistakes so I did apply a second one to make it all even. It dries very fast and shiny, but I never go without top coat, so I finished the manicure with a coat of Seche Vite.

I'm sorry I couldn't provide you with better shots of this. Maybe when spring comes I will swatch it again with a stronger sun. I hope however, that I gave you an idea of the true dimension of this polish. Or at least the certainty that you have to see this one with your own eyes.
