A-England Nail Lacquer in Saint George

A England — Saint George (Nail Varnish)

Collection: A-England, The Legend

In some ways, A-England is a bit obviously an indie brand: it’s inconsistent in the way its name is presented (it shows up on the official website in variations like a-england, a england, and A-England) and the nail polish itself doesn’t seem to have a product name (I’m just calling it Nail Lacquer since that seems to be pretty common, although I suppose that as a British brand, it’s more accurately Nail Varnish, isn’t it?).

But, I can easily stop nit-picking, because the first A-England I ever tried, Saint George, is simply an amazing polish.

A-England Nail Lacquer in Saint George, swatch

The color is a stunning deep teal green, just shy of being blackened, with fine holographic shimmer. This is no gaudy, in-your-face holo, however. It’s as elegant as a holographic nail polish can be. My swatch doesn’t really do it justice. In person, it has great depth and is somewhat mesmerizing!

The formula is also practically impeccable. It’s a one-coater if you apply a slightly thicker coat. I used two thinner coats for my swatch, because that’s how I like to roll, but this is functionally a one-coat wonder.

I’ve already placed an order for two more A-Englands, one being King Arthur (how could I not?). I hope they’re just as great as Saint George is!

  1. lol on your nitpicking on the a-england name! This shade is so intense! A perfect name for this polish.
    I had been curious about a-england for ages because of their holographic shimmers. A friend of mine gave me a bottle for my birthday present – “Fated Prince” and it’s gorgeous deep gunmetal colour with holographic shimmers – LOVE it! I plan to get more. On my list: Princess Sabra, Princess Tears… ALL DA HOLOS.

    • I’ve not generally had my head turned by indie polish brands, but I’m really glad I tried A-England! Super nice holo polish and great quality. I can’t wait to try more 🙂
