A England Russian Soul | Katyusha

As I promised in my previous post, today I'm sharing with you my favourite shade from the new A
England Collection, Russian Soul. Say hello to Katyusha*

'Katyusha* is the most popular Russian war song about a girl longing for her beloved and the pet name for Ekaterina, one of the most popular female names.'

indie nail polish metallic gold shimmer natural light

I got a bit carried away with snapping pictures so prepare yourself! You can't really blame me because this is the most gorgeous shade I've ever seen. Period. The colour is quite hard to describe. In my opinion, it's a metallic shade that shifts between very pale gold and olive green. It's a holographic polish but in natural light/shade it's more of a shimmer.

However, reach out your hand to the Sun or any form of artificial light and BAM! Holo everywhere! The consistency and formula are much like Kalinka's*, very easy to work with. However, as always, I'm very careful with my application of metallic shades to avoid visible brush strokes.

Katyusha* is one of three polishes from the Russian Soul Collection that have a similar metallic finish and formula. We've already seen Kalinka*, a silver metallic, which means there's one more shade to go! Will I be showcasing it tomorrow? Pop in and find out! Xx
