a-England Tess D'Urbervilles - Swatches and Review

a-England has recently released five new polishes called the Gothic Beauties Collection. a-England is one of my all-time favorite brands so I knew I had to have them even if swatches were indicating that they would all read black on me. So I pre-ordered them directly from Adina as soon as I could. The formula is absolutely amazing, as always - on all five of them. The Gothic Beauties Collection was inspired by and named for characters in well-known gothic literature. Literature, especially of this genre, is a passion of mine, so I was thrilled to see them!

Tonight I'm showing you Tess D'Urbervilles, the green shimmer. Tess was the beautiful and tragic heroine in Thomas Hardy's 1981 novel Tess'D'Urbervilles: A Pure Woman Faithfully Presented.


These are all in a blackened base and meant to be dark and mysterious. Tess, however, is the one that actually shows the color and shimmer the most of the collection. I'll be showing you the others in the days to come but lets have a look at Tess D'Urbervilles first. I used two easy coats and one coat of Poshe. The top coat really brings the shimmer to life. You could get by with one coat of this one actually, but I rarely go with one coat of anything. First I will show you how gorgeous it is in strong lighting and then I will show you what it's really going to look like on you 99% of the time.
