A England Ballerina Collection Swatches

Happy Friday! Today I have the new Ballerina Collection from A England to share with you! This collection is made up of 4 new holos. I'm always excited to hear that a new A England Collection is out because the formulas are always flawless and I find the inspiration behind the shades kind of fascinating. I always like reading how Adina's thoughts behind the shades! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

Dancing with Nureyev is a metallic blue holo. There is a strong blue shimmer that almost gives this one a duochome look when you move your hand around. The formula was great, it was a nice consistency and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.All photos are in natural sunlight.

Encore Margot is a metallic silver holo. The holo is a bit stronger in person that it looks in my photos but due to the metallic nature of the base it's not an in your face kind of holo. The formula was great, it was nice and opaque and the consistency was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below, all photos are in natural sunlight.

Fonteyn is a lavender toned metallic silver holo. This is very similar to Encore Margot but when you put them side by side you can see the lavender undertones this one has. The formula was fantastic, it was super opaque and the perfect consistency. I used 1 coat for the photos below, all photos are in natural sunlight.

Herrose Adagio is a rosy beige metallic holo. The holo is very subtle with this shade, but a touch more visible in person than it's looking in photos. The formula was again great, I used 2 coats for the photos below...all photos are in natural sunlight. 

A England is available from etailers all over the world, including Llarowe, Color4Nails and Nail Polish Canada. For a full list of etailers check out the A England site here.


  1. So pretty! I did get the blue one, its pending shipping, so I am looking forward to it. In the meantime I should wear Tristam!

  2. Thank you for post these gorgeous swatches!! Do you know if Fonteyn is the same/very similar to Princess Tears (a silvered lilac holo)....?? Thanks!!! ;)

  3. Princess Tears is much more purple

  4. Excellent - so Fonteyn is going to be mine ;) Thanks!

  5. Love the swatches. I need these!

  6. Your swatches are all very pretty, but the stand out for me is Dancing with Nureyev, the rest is a bit too pale for me.

  7. It can be basically the wedding collection. Fonteyn is my fav shade!
