Fall Favorites Part 5: a-england - Tristam

Happy Sunday everyone!

Hope you had an awesome weekend! I had - actually I haven't done a lot but relax a bit after this stressful week of work. And what's best to calm down again? Right, polishing my nails and blogging ;D I processed lots of pictures this weekend for the upcoming posts of my Fall Favorites Series. But let's go through the polishes one at a time.
Today I have for you Tristam from a-england. It is a rather new nail polish brand founded by Adina Bodana and I've stumbled upon swatches of her polishes on several blogs in the past. So when she offered free international shipping I just had to give in and order three of those. (You can see the other two shades I got in my October haul here.) I do like the theme of that collection which is entitled "The Mythicals" and it contains twelve Big 3- and cruelty-free shades. Tristam is a "night blue sky with starlight glimmer and glow" and here's a bottle shot of it.

For this manicure I used two coats which went on flawlessly. The polish was easy to control and richly pigmented. As a top coat I put on one coat of The Shield, which is also available at a-england. Even without a top coat Tristam dried to a very shiny finish. Indoors and in shade the holo glitter is very subtle and it rather looks like some silver glass flecks.




If you take Tristam outside into sunlight however, it nicely reflects all colors of the rainbow and depending on how you look at it you can even make out a bit of a linear holographic effect.






Sorry for the picture spam, but isn't this a pretty glittery navy blue polish? Another thing I have to mention is wearing time! Tristam lasted me for four days without chipping or massive tipwear! I'm impressed as my polish usually comes off at day two because of the gloves I have to wear at work all day long. So Tristam simply deserved its place in my Fall Favorites Series!

In case you want to purchase your own bottle of Tristam or any other "Mythical" now, head over to Adina's webshop at a-england.co.uk. Until November 25th there even is a special offer where her polishes retail for £7.00 instead of £9.00 per 13ml bottle and a-england ships internationally.

 That's it for today, enjoy the rest of this Sunday and thanks for stepping by.
