a england Love

I am ashamed to say that I had not tried any a england polishes before these three. For shame! I decided to take the plunge when  a sale was announced, and I am happy to report that I absolutely adore them. The formula was dreamy: consistent, buttery, pigmented and absolutely perfect. I kind of hate a england now because I can already imagine their polishes plunging me in a financial tailspin of epic proportions. I must have them all!!!!

GUINEVERE

GALAHAD

TRISTAM

It seems that summer has finally hit California. It has been so hot here the past few days that I am in an absolutely foul mood. Additionally, I had a major meltdown today because of HostGator. I had been thinking about having my blog hosted there and today I finally signed up. They made it sound like moving hosts would be a piece of cake and everything that could possibly go wrong has gone wrong for me. I am pretty sure that most of it is my fault, but I had asked so many questions beforehand and they really made it sound like a blindfolded monkey could do it. Alas, that is not the case. I decided to step away from it for the rest of the day since I spent all morning trying to figure it out. One of their support people called me (I had been dealing with online chat support) but I was so frustrated that I just didn’t want to talk to them. Hopefully I will be able to come back to it later and get it all straightened out. Let me tell you: WHAT.A.NIGHTMARE!

Let’s move on from my nightmare afternoon and back to the polish. What do you think of these colors? Are you as in love with them as I am? Do you have any a englands?

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope it’s cooler in your neck of the woods.

  1. It is not cooler here. It is freaking hot this week and I hate it so very, very much. I wait to walk to dog until late and I dislike it because it's still too hot for me and I currently have two fans running in my office. I am DYING to go home and take a shower after a stressful/busy day in this un-airconditioned office/running around with my mom.
    Sorry to hear about Host Gator. It sounds SUPER frustrating.
    BUT, the good news: THESE POLISHES! AH-MAZ-ING! That first holo pic…*falls over*
    How does Galahad compare to that one Illamasqua blue you posted semi-recently and made me want, yet I can't recall the name of?

    1. You know, I'm going to have to do a side by side comparison between Galahad and Muse because I think they are quite similar! The bad part: I don't regret buying either of them. LOL Such a psycho addict.

      I still have not resolved the Host Gator thing. I've just ignored it since it was so frustrating and I wanted to build up my reserves of patience before I try it again…it's been almost a week and I think I'm ready. LOL

      I think I am going to get all the a-england holos eventually. They are beyond gorgeous.

  2. I only have 2 a-englands but am lucky enough to have gotten them as gifts. I personally have a hard time justifying the purchase but whenever I see the polish on my fingers, I just want to buy them all. Tristam is simply one of my favorite all-time polishes and I've been lemming Guinevere since it came out.

    And NYC has been plagued with heat and humidity since what feels like last November. I can't even tell you how much I crave temperatures to plunge below 80. I miss snow and unfrizzy hair 🙁

  3. It is just as hot where I am and I'm too cheap to turn on the AC!!! I'd rather save my $$$ and buy Tristam!!!! I LOVE this polish!!!

    1. I don't even have AC…but I probably wouldn't turn it on either. LOL I think I'm lucky living so close to the beach since we get a decent breeze and it doesn't usually hit the mid-upper 90's here. I am telling you…Tristam is ah-mazing. I fell in love with it.

  5. I feel the same way about a-england. I love them but I also worry they will plunge me into financial ruin. 🙂

  8. Canada must have gave you the summer. It's rainy and gross here today.

    I have been watching Tristam from afar for a long time. *dreamy sigh* Tempation is so strong with that one.

  9. Omg its God awful hot in Vegas this summer, and monsoon season has somehow already started making the excessive heat warnings even worse because of the humidity. And I'm not talking about a few percent here either, when those clouds roll in we've been hitting humidity numbers over 60%. That's NUTS and I'm wilting like a damn delicate flower over here! Lol.

    I'm so glad you got these during the sale! I was between paychecks so I didn't get any, but these look gorgeous. I don't actually have any colors from the first collection, only the second.

  12. Oh my god these are gorgeous! I have mever tried any either! I was trying to decide which colors to get when i ordered from ninja polish but i didnt end up with any, now i know which to add to my wishlist 🙂

  13. Tristam is the only A england I am missing from my wants, until she comes out with more awesome colors. Ascalon, Order of the Garter, Dragon, and St George are my favorites (no I couldnt just list one), I highly recommend The Legend Collection.
