A England Russian Soul Collection | Kalinka

A new collection from A England is here and boy, it doesn't disappoint! Russian Soul Collection features a set of '5 holographic shades that are inspired by Russian music and dance'. It is such a luxurious range and I am absolutely in love with all the colours. I decided that I will be showcasing one polish on the blog everyday so prepare yourself for the amount of holo that's coming your way! We're starting off with Kalinka*.

Kalinka* is named after the most famous Russian song that, for whatever reason, I actually know! Don't ask me why, I just do! The only way I can describe this shade is that it's like wearing diamonds on your nails. I mean, just look at it! The holographic sparkle is suspended in a silver metallic base that shimmers beautifully in the light. The formula was very easy to work with but as it is a metallic shade I'm always very careful with application to avoid brush marks. It was fully opaque in 1 coat but in the picture I'm wearing 2 coats and a top coat for holo explosion!

Here's a picture of Kalinka* in the natural light. You can see the metallic effect a little better but there's still that dusting of sparkle. One more thing that's also worth mentioning is that the removal process in mess-free. No sparkle all over your hands!
