A-England The Mythicals: Elaine & Excalibur Swatches & Review

Today's post is a review of two more Mythicals from A-England: Elaine and Excalibur. Elaine is a dark eggplant-purple creme. It is a one-coater but I used 2 coats for my swatches for good measure. The formula is neither thick nor thin; it's just the right consistency to let you apply without pooling or dragging. Here it is topped with 1 coat of Poshé top coat:

Excalibur is a silver metallic that can be worn alone or used for stamping because of the highly pigmented formula. In the sunlight, it gleams and shines like chrome; but in the shade, it takes on a soft, muted tone. The swatches below are representative of the changes in different lighting. Being a metallic, it is prone to brushstrokes, but in reality, they aren't as pronounced as they may seem in the pictures. Here's 2 coats of Excalibur topped with 1 coat of Poshé:

Here's some nail art to demonstrate how pigmented and amazing Excalibur is when used for stamping. I haven't had such good results with any other silver yet.
