Guest Post at Globe and Nail

Today's blog entry is also my guest post over at Globe and Nail.
I was thrilled when she asked me to be her guest. Continue past the bar to read a copy of the post here or Hop on over to Globe and Nail!

I've become infatuated with Emma's reviews and swatches and I was over the moon when she asked if I'd do a guest post. -squee!!!- I recently acted on a purchase that Emma's swatches alone made me want; now that's a blogger with some magical fingers! The polish I'm referring to is A-England's St. George which she reviewed here in January.

My photos don't even compare to how beautiful her swatches are, but here's a bit more eye candy in my attempt to help sway the world!

Saint George is an absolutely beautiful deep teal polish. The color in this is so rich and pigmented; which also means be careful to avoid skin/cuticle contact with it, as it will stain. ;)

Saint George is a one coater. Completely smooth and completely opaque in one coat, yeah baby! It is a little on the thick side, so it takes a little extra time to apply but it was soooo worth it!

It has a subtle holographic sparkle. All these photos were taken indoors under a day lamp and I couldn't quite capture the holo sparkle. If you don't have this polish yet, it should be on your wishlist. Near the top. Srsly. :)
And since I can't leave well enough alone, I decided to top Saint George with Vivid Lacquer - You Are NOT My Nemesis.

I used two coats of YANMN and just LOOK at the blue sparkle it adds! The glitter topper contains turquoise diamonds, white shreds, and tiny iridescent shifting flakies.

The combo is pretty mesmerizing in person. I watched my fingers move under bright lights everywhere I went. Vivid Lacquer polishes are available through Etsy and you can follow the brand on Facebook. A England polishes are available through Llarowe and the A England website, or you can follow the brand on Facebook.
