A England Love Is Enough & Excalibur (new version)


Hi guys! I almost said TGIF but then I realized it's only Thursday :( wishful thinking... haha! Today I have a couple more new A England polishes to share with you. A England recently added another polish to their Heavenly Quotes Collection, they also put out a new version of Excalibur. 

Excalibur is a silvery gold foil. The older version of Excalibur was much more silver and the finish was a bit more of a frost (judging by photos since I don't own it!). I really like the new version, it applied nicely and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Love Is Enough is a blackened olive green with a golden shimmer. The polish is actually pretty complex, there are a lot of different colors of shimmer in here that all come together to give that blackened olive look. It reminds me a lot of Zoya FeiFei, they are obviously different color wise but they have the same feel to them. If you like one you'll most likely also like the other. The formula was good, it was a little sheer on the first coat but the opacity was easy to build and I only ended up needing 2 coats.

Love Is Enough and the new version of Excalibur are both available now, due to shipping restrictions if you live in the US you can't order these direct from a-england anymore, but there are a ton of etailers that sell them including Llarowe, Nail Polish Canada, Ninja Polish and more. There are also other etailers all over the world, for a full list check out the a-england website here.

  1. These polishes are pretty but just seem too heavy for summer. I guess I'm a little burned out with sparkly looking polishes.

  4. Love the new version of Excalibur...thanks for showing it in the different lighting....I did see it compared to OPI Design de Better I think it was and they were so much alike it surprised me - but as I recalled Design deBetter did not look silver on me but more gold so wonder when you do comps if you could see what you think of the 2 side by side - maybe they only are close in certain lighting.

    Thank you for the review! It is really helpful. Do you think new Excalibur has something in common with OPI Designer... De Better! (not the pink shimmer, sure, just the general mood)?
