a England - Dragon

The Dragon is here. As promised.

The Green Dragon Song
"Oh you can search far and wide,
You can drink the whole town dry,
But you'll never find a beer so brown,
As the one we drink in our hometown.
You can drink your fancy ales,
You can drink them by the flagon,
But the only brew for the brave and true,
Comes from the Green Dragon!"

The name of this polish reminds me of two hobbits, singing and dancing on the table. Sorry, the LOTR fanatic in me took over.

Adina probably didn't have Lord of the Rings in her mind when she created this shade. Dragon is yet another part of the story about St. George, princess Sabra and the evil dragon. We all know who won the battle...

Can I be honest? The shades from The Legend collection are driving me crazy. I don't know how to photograph these colors without washing out the beauty of their holographic shimmer and changing their main color. I give up! You have to see them for yourself, that's for sure.

I don't wanna sound like a broken record, but I guess I have to: this is another one of those perfect shades a England introduced us to. Dragon is a fern green with copper-ish flash and holographic shimmer. And all you can see on my photos taken in lightbox is fern green... but I swear, it's there. The brush and formula are great. This polish could possibly be a one coater if you apply it carefully. Can't say nothing bad about the opacity and I can't say nothing bad about the drying time and glossy shine either. Another perfection in a bottle!

This is the photo I took outside. The sun decided to not cooperate and hid itself, but you can still see that copper-y flash I was talking about. The color comes pretty close to what Dragon looks like IRL.

And now about the last shot. This one is special because it's made with my Nikon... And my Nikon cares more about the finish of the polish than it does about the color. Dragon is not as strong green as you can see on this photo, but you can see that holo shine I'm blabbing about for the last three a England posts. And the copper caught in all the green... *sigh* Masterpiece.

The Legend collection should be up on a England website soon. Until then, you can order the polishes from the new collection by contacting Adina directly (hello@a-england.co.uk).

What are your thoughts on a England's Dragon?

*The product was sent to me by the company.

Thanks for looking and commenting!
