a-england Ascalon

Hi guys! Today I have a swatch of one of my first a-england polishes to share with you, which is Ascalon from The Legend collection.

Ascalon is a dark grey base with scattered holographic particles and a beautiful green/lavender shimmer. Somehow, it reminds me of pigeons. You know, they are grey, but also have this green and lavender shimmery feathers. Not that it is a bad thing, it just reminded me of that.

This polish has a nice formula, a bit tricky on the first coat, but it evened out beautifully on the second. I got to enjoy this pretty for around 4 days with only minimal tipwear and no chips.

My swatches don't do it justice, though and I'll revisit this swatch in the future. The day was overcast when I took the pics so the holo particles didn't want to come out to play :( The great thing is that, even when there's no holo, you still get some beautiful duochrome action. No matter the lighting condition, Ascalon doesn't disappoint.

You can get this and other polishes directly from a-england, they retail for £9.00, with worldwide free shipping.

Hola chicas! Hoy les quiero mostrar uno de mis primeros esmaltes a-england, Ascalon de la colección The Legend.

Ascalon es un esmalte color gris oscuro con partículas holográficos y un precioso brillo tornasol que va del verde al lila. De alguna forma me recordó a las palomas,que son grises y tienen plumas brillantes verdes y lilas.

Este esmalte tiene una buena formula, al principio la consistencia es un poco espesa, pero se nivela en la segunda 2 capa siendo totalmente opaco. Lo mejor es que lo usé por 4 días con mínimo desgaste.

Mis fotos no le hacen justicia a este esmalte, el día que las saqué estaba nubladísimo por lo que no se ve el efecto holográfico :( Lo bueno de este esmalte es que cuando no tienes sol, sale a la luz el efecto tornasol. Así que no importa como esté el día, Ascalon no decepciona.

Puedes comprar este y otros esmaltes directamente de a-england, cuestan alrededor de CLP$7.000 (£9.00) cada uno, con envío gratis a todo el mundo.
