Review and Swatches: a England - Beauty Never Fails & Holy Grail

Adina, the owner of a England nail polish brand, sent me her 2 new shades: Beauty Never Fails and Holy Grail for review. She's constantly coming up with great shades that tend to go toward the darkness and mythical times. And that's exactly why I love them so much. Let me tell you: her new shades are true winners!

Beauty Never Fails is a completely new shade and also the first polish from the Heavenly Quotes collection: 'beauty never fails' is a quote from a letter by Edward Burne Jones to his friend. I think we're gonna see more awesome shades in the collection soon. The base of this polish is blackened green and it contains loads of green, golden and bronze shimmer particles. The thing I like the most is that the polish doesn't look black, plus the shimmer is really visible. Two coats of this beauty and you're set.

Holy Grail is a new edition (revamped shade) of a polish from The Mythicals collection. This is what I wanted the first Holy Grail version to be: antique gold with green-ish hues, packed with shimmer. That's the old gold I like. It only took 2 coats to reach the full opacity. What can I say... if the shades from The Gothic Beauties collection disappointed me a little, I gotta say Adina nailed it this time. Hats off!

Just to remind you: this is the old (and now limited) edition of Holy Grail.

Both polishes had the same formula of the right consistency and a great brush which resulted in easy application. Both are 2-coaters and dry quite fast. No wonder I think of quality when I hear the name 'a England'. 

You can buy a England polishes on their website. You can also find a England on Facebook and Twitter

*Polishes were sent to me for review.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on these two new a England shades. =) 

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. Oh dear, those look great, really, really great! They reside on the top of my wishlist for now, and since Christmas is coming, I'm sure "beauty never fails" will come to me soon. I love the shimmer, and the colors are great, too. Aaah, this beauty :)

  4. Beauty never fails je čudovit, fantastičen odtenek. Spominja me na veliko boljšo verzijo Bronze Patine od Isadore. Novi Holy grail mi je veliko bolj všeč od starega. Super barvi.

  9. Beauty Never Fails kind of reminded me of Good Old Buffy from Essence..
    Not sure if I go for these, because I'm not a fan of greenish golds, they look weird on my pinkish hands :(
