A-England The Legend and The Mythicals Swatches and Reviews

Some A-England spam for you guys today! Three from The Mythicals and one from the Legend. Can you tell I am slightly obsessed with their polishes? Here's what's coming:




Iseult is a light pink creme with subtle shimmer, giving it a pearly finish. The formula is  on the thinner side but easy to work with nonetheless. I'm happy to say that I didn't experience dragging or balding as I'm always on the lookout for a pink creme with a decent formula. Here are 3 coats of Iseult with 1 coat of Poshe:

Dragon is a light green base with scattered holo glitter. The formula is a one-coater and the application was smooth and buttery! So gorgeous in the sun. I added a blurred macro shot to show you the power of the holo glitter. Here's 1 coat of Dragon with 1 coat of Poshe:

Galahad is a dark and dusty turquoise creme. The formula is slightly runny and needed 2 coats for full coverage. Again, A-England amazes me with how pigmented their polishes are, never needing more than 2 coats. Here are 2 coats of Galahad with 1 coat of Poshe:

A-England - Galahad

Lancelot is a dark red-based black creme. The formula is pigmented and non-fussy, drying to a glossy finish. To show you what I mean about the black being 'red-based', I used 1 thick coat on all nails except for the pinkie, on which I used a thin coat of Lancelot. You can see the reddish tinge quite clearly on that nail.

I decided to have some fun with Galahad & Lancelot and did a simple polka dot mani with a frilly edge:

Bridal Veil is a black base with multi-coloured holo glitter. I needed 2 coats to build opacity. The different colours of the holo glitter stand out very well in the black base. This is such a great polish for those (like me!) who don't feel comfortable wearing a black nail polish by itself. The glitter tones down the harshness of the black and adds beautiful depth! Here are 2 coats of Bridal Veil with 1 coat of Poshe:

I can't believe I have already reviewed all my A-Englands! I love this brand a lot because of their unique colours and consistency with delivering high quality formula every time. I hope you enjoyed this post!

    1. Thanks Jennifer :) Iseult is under-rated imo. I'm probably going to wear it for every wedding I attend haha
