If only Princess Tears are this beautiful...

Couple months ago I won first prize from a giveaway, and the lovely Michaela (check out her nail blog here!) let me select a few polishes of my choice as the prize. Since I have my eyes on the new The Legends collection from A-England, I picked Princess Tears, Dragon, Princess Sabra and Ascalon, and here is Princess Tears today!

A-England Princess Tears - two coats with top coat

I fell in love with Princess Tears straight away when I saw the swatches, and it certainly does not disappoint in person! It is a silver lilac scattered holo with a semi-frost finish, quite unique and I don't have any polish that is similar at all. Although the prismatic effect is subtle, it is still very pretty as lights bounce off the holographic particles.




Princess Tears is a perfect two coater, and I might try it for stamping in the future as it is already quite opaque at one coat. After wearing Princess Tears for a day, I wanted to add a little something to my mani, so I added a simple French tip using A-England Ascalon (which will be swatched on its own soon). Do you like the final result? Or should I have left my original mani alone?
