One of my first loves has always been literature. At a certain point, I was convinced that I would pursue the life of academia and would eventually become a literature professor focusing on Elizabethan-era literature. Things didn’t quite turn out that way. I feel that for a while, I lost my passion for most of the things that had shaped me as an adult but I’m glad to say that I’m finding my way back. Making time for reading has been difficult, but I have come to realize that you have to force yourself to make the time for the things that are important to you. Now, the reason why I’m talking about my love for literature is because I have a beautiful collection to share with you today. A-England Poe’s Tale Collection made me think of the first time I read The Raven and how my love for Poe’s work spiraled from there. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
This is such a beautiful collection! The formula on all of these polishes is immaculate: I only needed two coats for full opacity but I bet I could have gotten away with 1 if I applied a thicker coat. The formula is on the thicker side but it’s super smooth and buttery so they all apply like a dream. All of these polishes dry to a satin finish so I applied a shiny top coat for my swatches. I actually wish I hadn’t applied a top coat because they look beautiful without it as well.
If you are interested in purchasing any of the polishes from the A-England Poe’s Tale Collection, you can head on over to Color4Nails where they are in stock and retail for $12 each. Let me know what you think of this collection in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.
