Swatches & Review: a England Rossetti's Goddess Collection

As much as I love getting a England polishes in the mail, I don't love posting my photos of them. Since most of them aren't your regular, simple creme finish shades, they (almost) never come out right and I feel my photos don't do them any justice. Unfortunately, that's the case with the latest Rossetti's Goddess collection as well. All of the shades from this collection are so complex and multifaceted you really need to see them with your own eyes to understand what I'm talking about.

Like a lot of other a England shades, Rossetti's Goddess collection is also inspired by one of the pre-raphaelite artists. This time it's Dante Gabriel Rossetti and his painting Proserpine (on the photo above). Collection consists of 4 mesmerizing shades: Captive Goddess, Proserpine, Jane Morris and Incense Burner

Captive Goddess, 2 coats

Captive Goddes is a silvery blue shade with multichrome finish. It shifts from light blue to purple and contains a lot of fine holographic shimmer. It's a true little chameleon.

Proserpine, 2 coats

Proserpine is a deep teal shade with fine holographic shimmer. At first, it reminded me of Saint George from The Legend collection, but when I compared them side by side, I could see Proserpine is a lot more on the blue side... This one is the most opaque in the collection - it needs one slightly thicker coat for full opacity.

Jane Morris, 2 coats

Jane Morris is the one that's the hardest to photograph. It looks like your average grey holo shimmer, but it contains duochrome flecks which shift from blue to purple. Very pretty in real life, but very hard to photograph. I guess I'm gonna have to keep trying with this one...

Incense Burner, 2 coats

Incense Burner is a maroon-ish purple shade packed with golden/green shimmer. It's the darkest of the bunch, hence my favorite to wear.

All of the shades were easy to apply and have good formula. They are all 2 coaters, except for Proserpine which is a 1-coater. They're just what I expected them to be - unique, special, extremely beautiful and complex. I've pretty much seen it all, and it takes a lot to excite me when it comes to nail polish, but Adina keeps them coming and I can't deny it - she's the queen of eerie nail polish shades (meant in the best way possible).

You can buy the shades from the Rossetti's Goddess collection on a England website. If you're located outside of the UK, check out the Where to Buy tab. You can also find a England on Facebook and Twitter
