A England Tennyson's Romance Review

a england tennyson's romance review swatches furious filer

For the past 2 weeks, I've been in full swatching mode and I'm finally ready to show you a new collection from A England called Tennyson's Romance. It features 5 beautiful holographic shades and I compared some of them with polishes from previous A England's collections. Let's have a look!


SHALL BE MY QUEEN*

My favourite from the entire collection! At first, I thought it was a red, but when I compared it with A England's Rose Bower* and Briar Rose Sleeping Beauty* I could tell it was more of a raspberry shade. The formula is lush and in the picture I'm wearing one coat + top coat. ONE COAT.

KING COPHETUA*

I would describe this shade as a charcoal black. It's has a variety of holo although it's primarily blue and grey. Another amazing one-coater with a layer of top coat to bring out the sparkle.

THE BEGGAR MAID*

A grey-green with a bronze reflection, now that's an unusual shade! Another one coater with an amazing formula. Shown here with a top coat. In terms of colour, it is similar to Katyusha* (swatched here). It has the same metallic feel but it's a bit darker.

IN ROBE AND CROWN*

A beautiful deep burgundy with an entire holographic spectrum. It's yet ANOTHER one-coater with a layer of top coat to bring out the sparkle.


ANGEL GRACE*

Now this is one stunning polish! It's a warm shade of violet and it could very much be the most holographic polish I've ever owned. It's a little bit more sheer compared to the rest of the collection but it's still fully opaque in 2 coats. Swatched here with a layer of top coat.

I absolutely love this collection but then I am a huge fan of A England in general. If you are familiar with this brand then you know that Adina takes her inspiration from history. Her creations have a medieval, regal and sometimes gothic feel to them and they are all fab! All the shades from this collection were inspired by 'The Beggar Maid' poem by Tennyson and a corresponding painting of Burne-Jones, 'King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid'. They tell a story of a king that fell in love with a maid and married her. Didn't I say it was going to be regal?!

What's do you think about this collection? xx
