A England “Dancing with Nureyev”

As an old ballet dancer and a ballet lover it’s natural that I love everything ballet themed and this stunning blue holographic polish from A England’s collection Ballerina is no exception.

“Dancing with Nureyev” is a violet-blue shade, a soft romantic blue yet very sophisticated and very suitable to a ballet theme. Depending on the lighting the shade looks violet or blue and the scattered/prismatic holo particles give another dimension to the polish.

A romantic and elegant violet-blue

The formula is stunning, as all polishes from A England. This is two coats, but I think you could get away with only one if you apply it a little thicker.

To emphasize the romantic feeling I’ve added a little stamping on my ring fingers, the swirly tree pattern is from Moyou Mother Nature 11 and I used Mentality “Opaque White”.

Stamping with Mentality Opaque White and Moyou Mother Nature 11

Mentality “Opaque White” is a white stamping polish that’s pearlescent or a bit on the silver side and not that matte white I’m used to with stamping polishes. I think it gives the stamping a very elegant feel to it.

Matches my distressed jeans perfectly!

You can find both A England and Mentality Nail Polish at Edgy Polish, as well as some Moyou London stamping plates and rhinestones.

& other Stories - "Cobwed Coal"

& other Stories – “Cobwed Coal”

Of course I bought some nail polish in Copenhagen and I decided to try on this gorgeous blue shimmer polish from & other Stories first, it’s called “Cobwed Coal” and it’s a muted dark blue with shimmer finish. It made me think of dark waters and pirates(!) so I added a little black skull on my ring finger 😀
The application was easy, this is two coats and top coat.
