A-England The Mythicals: Lady Of The Lake and Perceval Swatches & Review

Today I have some more A-England swatches to show you guys from their Mythicals collection: Lady Of The Lake and Perceval. I feel comfortable saying that A-England has quickly become one of my favourite nail polish brands and I am constantly amazed at the formula!


Lady Of The Lake is a purple holo, quite complex like its blue friend, Tristam. The formula is slightly thinner than Tristam's so you need two coats to get rid of the VNL (visible nail line). The holo effect is gorgeous in the sunlight! I used 2 coats of Lady Of The Lake topped with 1 coat of Seche Vite:

Perceval is a true metallic red with red shimmer. I would call this polish "radiant" and it was quite a challenge to capture it on camera. The formula was super easy to work with and I didn't have staining around my nails on removal, which tends to happen with most red polishes. I used 2 coats of Perceval topped with 1 coat of Seche Vite:

And here is the wonderful super-promotion that A-England is running right now, which is the reason my A-England collection is going to expand once my package arrives from London: 


How amazing is Adina for having free international shipping and $8 per polish?! That's $5 less than what it normally is..there's only 2 days left so now's the time if you want to try them!

I hope you enjoyed today's swatches! Let me know if you'd like to see swatches for a specific collection or brand and I shall do my best to make it happen :)

  1. Perceval is one of my favorite reds. It's just so luminous and beautiful!

    (Also I'm not sure if you are aware that captcha is turned on. I think it's default with Blogger.)

    2. Some people don't mind but blogger tends to be tricky with their words and I know some people who won't comment if they have to jump through hoops. I had the same problem with my blog and I had no idea it was turned on until someone let me know! Turning it off definitely up-ed my # of blog comments. :)
