a-england lightning bolt

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Friday! Yay! Any plans for the weekend? I'm going into lockdown when I'm not working... so much schoolwork to do. Research and all that. Ugh. Hopefully your weekend will be more fun than mine!

Today I've got something fun to show you. I didn't want to show these out of order but I figured this would be a fun way to end off the week. I have all of these swatched individually but they look so gorgeous together! I spent ages trying to figure out how to wear them all together and then I remembered Jane's awesome tutorial! I will be doing an in-depth review next week for each beauty and I have some fun information to share with you, especially if you haven't tried any of the gorgeous a-england polishes, so stay tuned for that!

I started with one (!!!) coat of a-england Galahad. Waited for it to dry, taped it off, then did two quick coats of a-england Holy Grail. Then I waited for Holy Grail to dry before I added two generous coats of a-england Merlin (which is the most awesome glitter ever, but you'll see why next week!) and finished it all off with topcoat. I love tape manicures. They take ages but they look SO cool!




I love and loathe macro. The glitter was opaque in real life when I was looking at it, but... bleh. Anyway, I loved this one!

What do you lovelies think? Have you attempted a tape manicure yet?

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!

  1. I only attempted a tape mani once-it was a disaster. I'll stick to stamping! This is nice though!
