A-England Tristam-Let the Fun Begin!

Today, I get to show you a stunningly beautiful nail polish...A-England Tristam!  
You may have seen it all over nail blogs, but I don't really think it gets old.  It is a gorgeous midnight blue  with a nice subtle holographic shimmer!  What really struck me was how easily this polish went on!  It was ALMOST opaque in ONE coat and I had virtually no clean-up!  The brush was the perfect size, and the bottle was too!  This wins the prize for the best polish application ever! 
As beautiful as these pictures are, they did NOT capture the goodness in this polish!  The sun decided to go into hiding, and I have yet to perfect my light box. :o(  There is a TON more holo in these than the pics show...  
 Below is a close-up of the different shimmery colors!  There is actually some pink and green in there too that the camera didn't get.  It seems that A-England's Lady of the Lake gets more air time than Tristam, but I have a feeling this one is going to be my favorite of the two. I have just seen nothing like it!
You can see somewhat of the shimmer here, but the pink, purple holo is still missing here.
 It is polishes like this that make me not want to buy other brands!  But wait, I didn't stop there!
Look! I see a glimpse of the holo here!
So, I couldn't wait to try on a Lynnderella polish, so I put Bibbity-Bobbity-Boo-Blue on my thumbs. It is in a clear jelly base with almost neon blue glitters and some purple glitters as well. I will review this polish in detail at a later date with a full manicure.

Isn't it crazy amazing?  This was two coats of BBBB over Tristam. After putting it over Tristam, I felt bad covering such a show-stopping nail polish.   I think I would rather try it over one of my Sally Hansen's or WnW. :o)  But I still couldn't stop looking at it!  I am so excited to see all of my nail polishes on my nails! 
You can buy either of these polishes at Llarowe.  However, Lynnderella's are out of stock almost constantly. Like Llarowe's Facebook page to keep updated on when she gets a shipment of those in...
If Tristam is out of stock, I bought my A-England's at the A-England website.  It takes longer because it is in England, but shipping is free.  
Stay tuned for A-England's Lady of the Lake up next...

Wow, what a great set of colors! I see the worth in the extra dollars spent! When summer comes around and I begin to care about my nails again, I'd consider buying one or two IF I could settle on one or two colors!!!
