Day 21: Inspired by a Color- a england Dragon

Monday, January 30, 2012
Good afternoon! Sorry I didn't post over the weekend at all. I was somewhat busy, and I also really loved my last water marble manicure and didn't want to take it off.

Today's polish is from a england's new collection, The Legend. This is actually one of my first a england polishes (I also ordered Saint George when I bought Dragon, but more on that later) and I have to say that I'm kicking myself for not buying any a england polishes sooner. It's not that I was living on a rock the last few years and missed Adina's beautiful polishes featured on many great nail blogs, it's just that I felt like I wasn't worthy. Is that silly or what?

Back to the polish. Dragon is a beautiful green holo but with with a bit of bronze mixed in that adds to the complexity. I can't help but marvel at this color on my nails, it is so jawdroppingly rich that I did with just ONE coat.
In the sunlight, this polish is the exact color that I imagine a dragon to be, resting on his golden hoard that reflects the glint of metallic color and prismatic gems onto his underbelly. 

Even in artificial lighting, there is something unbelievably attractive about Dragon. It has that sort of sly, sneaky reptilian feeling green. I could babble on about it for days. 

So though my nail challenge calls for a manicure Inspired by a Color, I'd like to reword it. Today, I'm wearing a color that is so vibrant, that I find it thoroughly inspiring.  

I ordered my A England polishes from Llarowe ($12 each), and I wanted to mention that my experience was fantastic. I ordered on a Monday, and it was processed and sent out the very next day. I'm all about instant gratification so I was thrilled at how fast I received it on Friday. Also, shipping was more than just reasonable ($1.64, I think for two polishes). 

Product featured was purchased by me, for my own use. For additional information, please refer to my Disclosure Policy.

  1. You've really done this shade justice. Nice job! I can't wait to have done sun to get pics of mine. The Legends collection is incredible!
