A England Sleeping Palace: Pattern Nail Art and Swatch

I hauled some lovely polishes from A-England from the color4nails.com site during their anniversary sale. First up let me tell you that they are one of the best polishes I have used. Brilliant one coaters most of them and they look like glowing from within. They are super smooth to apply and dry in no time! Show stopper today is: Sleeping palace (link) from the Burne-Jones-Dream Collection

Base: A-England Sleeping Palace
Stamping plate: Pueen 34
Stamping polish: Bells of Ireland from M-Polish (link)
Topped with hkgirl

Also a quick word on this stamping polish. Its pearly light green and it shows up really well on darker bases. I have reviewed around 9 stamping polishes from M-polishes and they have all passed with flying colours. There's a new one called "To and to Holo" and yup..its a holo stamping polish! That is certainly going in my wishlist and I also need some really awesome neon stamping polishes. 

Another shot of my mani

And I am leaving this last so you can drool on this swatch all day!

Hav fun!

So this formed in my head and looked way cooler and easy to do. Especially after you see a bunch of vinyl videos and they make the whole thing look like a breeze. And then you feel like a pro yourself ..lol!

Yeah this mani got me to my knees! but lets skip the unpleasant part.
Base: Maybelline porcelain party
Highlights: ChG Go with the flow, ChG DJ blue my mind
Stamping plate: B.Loves plates Geometry is perfect
Nail Vinyls: TwinkledT (the cyclone variety)

Stay Quirky review Crazy Good Sand Effect

Another mani with my new SQ polishes

Base: SQ So crazy
Stamping plate: B.Loves Mind blown 03
Stamping polish: Konad black

Crazy Good (link; available on purplle.com) is a shimmery medium turquoise blue shade; with a sand effect finish. I really like this shade and this is something that I was looking forward to when Maybelline had launched their glitter mania line. But that was very few shades and was missing a turquoise in particular. This polish has very fine shimmer and super fine glitter. It can be a bit tough to remove it, so I have used a glue base under this polish.
I applied 2 coats in the pic above. It dries fast..3-4 mins.
Price is Rs.150/- for 8ml (mrp is Rs.200/- and they have some promotions going on).
The brand says its a part of the sand effect line where you can get gritty granular effect. 
Started chipping on the tips on the 3rd day.

Pink-a-licious (link; available on purplle.com) is a dark pink creme shade. It has a nice glossy finish and applies smooth.
