Here is another polish from 2011, that made it's way into my life through the generosity and amazingness of my blogging buddy Courtney. She, out of nowhere, sent me A-England's Tristam and Lady of the Lake!!!!!!!!! Seriously????? Words can not express how beautiful this polish is, and how thankful I am to Courtney for sending me this HUGE gift in the middle of my crazy, hectic, stressful month. She is an amazing friend and person.
Tristam is my first A-England ever. I've read plenty of blog posts about it and people just can't get enough of the formula and colors. Now I know why. Lets start with the formula. Super smooth, flows like butter, self levels and cleans up easy. A-England just might be my new favorite formula. And then, there is the color. Descriptions I read call it a sapphire blue, but I don't know, I totally see a dark purple-y blue when I look at this. Don't get me wrong, I'm obsessed with the color. I just see purple. Weird...
Any way this "blue" is PACKED with holographic shimmer creating this great holographic effect. I could see it in almost every light. Unfortunately the camera wouldn't capture the beauty I saw under the Ott-Lite. And I wore this when it was cloudy and generally cruddy outside, so no sunlight pictures here. If you go back here at Courtney's post of Lady of the Lake, and take a look at the sunlight picture, that's what you get with Tristam.

Tristam is part of A-england's Mythicals collection. You can pick this up from A-England's website or at Llarowe's. Either way the polish will run you around $15 with shipping. I suggest if you are into scattered holos, blues or purples, you RUN to buy this and Lady of the Lake. You won't regret it :).
Until tomorrow!!! (Man this post has me pumped - Bonus points to whoever tells me how many exclamation points I used in this post - haha)
