A England - Ophelia

Today I have another beautiful polish to show you.

Ophelia is a black base with purple shimmer from A Englands Gothic Beauties collection.

It's a gorgeous polish when you can get the purple to pop out, unfortunately that's a bit hard to do *sobs*
In the bottle you can see the purple very easily, but on the nails its quite hard to see unless you juuust hit the right lighting. Which also made it difficult to catch with the camera.

Formula is, like other A Englands I have tried, great and makes application easy, it was almost opaque in 1 coat, but I had to apply one more thin coat to get it totally opaque and drying time was nice too.

Here it is with 1 layer of top coat in natural light.

It looks black in low light.

Here it is in direct sunlight (I hate the silver lids when taking photos in sunlight.....)

I have tried to catch the purple, but it was really difficult.

What do you think?

Application: 10/10
Opacity: 9/10
Colour, prettiness: 7/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8,5/10
Buy again: Probably not.


  1. I love the purple shimmer, but it's a polish that would look nothing but black on me, so it's not a polish for me, really :)

    1. I had the same feeling with it and I have mixed feelings about it, because when you can see the purple it looks really gorgeous, but it's just not often enough :/
