a England - She Walks in Beauty

Third shade (along with And The Moonbeams and Beauty Never Fails) from the a England Heavenly Quotes collection is called She Walks in Beauty.

''An intricate and complex mix of large and small rose-coloured hexagonal glitter in a shimmering pale golden base that colour-shifts with light and movement.'' (a England)

She Walks in Beauty
by George Gordon Byron

She walks in beauty, like the night 
   Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright 
   Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light 
   Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less, 
   Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress, 
   Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express 
   How pure, how dear their dwelling place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow, 
   So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow, 
   But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below, 
   A heart whose love is innocent!

I'm really not gonna try to describe this polish, the description from the a England website says it all. One of the most interesting polishes I've had the chance to wear... It's glittery, shimmery, iridescent, duochrome-ish... and I could go on. I'm not gonna say I'm a huge fan of this one, but that's really up to personal taste. When it comes to quality, it's just as I expected it to be: impeccable. To be completely honest, I didn't even know what to do with this one. Do I apply it on my nails on it's own, do I layer it? I'm still not sure which way it looks best... It's just very special.

I tried layering it over black, but it lost some of it's iridescence...

  8. Omg! Much better on its own - you might try to layer it over a light pink or taupe shade...
