a-england: New Promotion (and Tristam’s 1st birthday!)


I think I’ve made my love for a-england lacquers pretty clear by now, but in case you need further evidence of my devotion, then feel free to see the visual proof in the links I’ve included below.  In the meanwhile, and if there is anyone out there who may still be on the fence about ordering any (or all!) of these incredible varnishes, Adina Bodana – creative maestro of the brand – has sweetened the deal even further, and this on top of the FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING already in place: in honour of her beloved feline companion Tristam’s 1st birthday, and for the next 72 hours only, both ‘The Mythicals’ and ‘The Legend’ collections will be available at 30% off the regular price.

Go ahead … run, don’t walk to your computer! (www.a-england.co.uk)

    the minute i saw on FB/ twitter that a-england was having a 30% promo, i completed my the legend collections and damn, colours that i had wanted from the mythicals are all sold out :(

    but even without the promo code, i’d buy them all in a heartbeat! 😀

    • Eugenia says:

      I’m so glad to hear that your Legend collection is complete and sorry to hear that you didn’t get the Mythicals you wanted, but since Adina has been so generous with her promotions in the past, there’s no reason to think she won’t offer something similar in the future as well 😉 ! No matter what, you can’t go wrong with any shades from this brand – nice to know that you’re a fan like me!

      • midnightplue says:

        the only thing Adina needs to do now is churn out more colours! but I guess good things are worth the wait, so I shall slowly play around the ones I have now 😀

      • Eugenia says:

        Take your time and enjoy the beauties you already own; one thing I absolutely love about a-england, is that being more of an indie brand, there’s a lot of thought & carefully planning that goes into each collection, ensuring that every component is just perfect and like you said, so worth the wait!

  2. OMG I did NOT see this until now!!! Sadly, St. George (my fav!) was out of stock..But I bought Princess Sabra instead. I had way too many dark polishes comparing to light ones to begin with. And this is a nice “gold” + holographic addition to my collection. ALL of them are soo gorgeous!!! THANK YOU Eugenia once again for all the amazing swatches and this coupon! Free shipping was awesome too. 😛

    • Eugenia says:

      You’re so very welcome, Eileen! Even though you missed out on Saint-George (who knows? perhaps there’ll be another promo in the not too distant future!), I’m glad you were able to snag Princess Sabra…it’s such a unique shade and deserves all the praise it’s been getting! So glad you like my swatches! :)

    Don’t you worry Eugenia – the instant this promo came in my inbox, I was on the computer ordering Tristam Eyes – it was the one shade I regretted not also picking up in my last order! I can’t WAIT for it to arrive!!!!! 😀

    • Eugenia says:

      I’m so glad you were able to take advantage of this fab sale! And I can totally see this shade on you; it may not have the instant “WOW” factor of some of its more vivid counterparts (ie: Dragon, Saint-George), but it will enchant you just the same! Whenever I wear it, I find myself constantly catching yet another new colour every time I look!

    Adina is so generous with this promotion…. I couldn’t resist!! I ordered The knight and The shield, the colors are beautiful, but treatments are very important too for a good mani!! And since I’m living an acqua obsession, I ordered Galahad!

    • Eugenia says:

      Mara. ‘Galahad’ is spectacular and don’t worry that it’s too close to Saint-Tropez, cause it’s not; this has a vivid yet dusty look to it — so beautiful! ‘The Knight’ & ‘The Shield’ are my all-time favourite top + base coats…plus they work amazingly with a-england lacquers! So happy for you!

  5. Adina (a-england) says:

    Thank you Eugenia! How lovely to see my pretty boy on your page!!! He looks perfectly settled :) Much love from both <3

    • Eugenia says:

      You’re so very welcome, Adina! And after all, how could I do any less for my baby ‘God-kitten’? (Not to mention the fact that this is such a generous promotion!) :) :) :)

  6. Julia says:

    Adina is so awesome (I know it isn’t named for her, but she even has an amazing namesake polish in Zoya Adina!). I was super excited when I saw this promotion in my inbox this morning. I’m definitely going to get Order of the Garter, which is the only Legend I don’t already have, but I’m trying to decide if I want anything else (well obviously I want other polishes, but you knowwwwww, trying to exercise a LITTLE control!). Merlin? Guinevere? Holy Grail? Galahad? HELP ME CHOOSE.

    Ugh, I’ve been looking at swatches of Order of the Garter–HOW DID I PASS IT UP BEFORE!?!?!?!?! Hee, do you think I’m excited about this sale?

    • Julia says:

      Oh and never fear, I already have Tristam and Lady of the Lake!

    • Eugenia says:

      Well, I don’t blame you one little bit for being excited; how can you be a lover of fine nail varnish and NOT be excited by this? And for the record, yes…Adina is totally amazing (I haven’t seen the Zoya polish you mentioned, but I trust your judgement!). As to which to choose, well it depends; ‘Merlin’, while it definitely can be worn on its own, is super fabulous for layering. ‘Guinevere’ is my favourite pale lavender hue EVER – somehow manages to look both dainty & edgy (still haven’t figured out how Adina did that!). ‘Holy Grail’ is a stunning gold, and while it may lean slightly yellow, it still suits most skin tones and ‘Galahad’ is a vibrant yet dusty acqua — and perfect for the summer! Have I confused you even more now? Lol! I should have warned you that I’m the worst person to ask, as I love them all!

      • Julia says:

        Yes, you DID confuse me more! I just placed an order for Order of the Garter and Merlin (I’ve wanted Merlin for a while; the irregular glitter looks so amazing and I only have one silver glitter right now, China Glaze Tinsel, which is pretty but a little too delicate and also smells AWFUL), but I’m going to have to think about what else I want. I thought I was decided on Holy Grail, because as you know (i never shut up about it) I love gold, but then I also love lavender (never shut about that either) and if EUGENIA says that Guinevere is her favorite lavender, that’s pretty persuasive! Butttttttttt, this week is also sale time at Sephora and I was thinking of picking up some Dior and Illamasqua, so there is a lot of consideration that has to go on!

        And I’m going to have to swatch Zoya Adina for you because it’s one of my favorites! Beautiful green/purple duo chrome. I have something *special* on my nails right now (you’ll here about it in my email!), but I’ll do that in a few days.

      • Eugenia says:

        Oh Julia….I’m so sorry, lol! There; you made up your mind after all – no matter which shade you chose, I’d be sure to approve!! And now you have me insanely curious to see your mani! Can’t wait to read & see your email! :)

  7. Anneke says:

    Adina is so amazingly generous! I’ve ordered 3 more last night. And oh my, isn’t Tristam just the most beautiful mascot she could have!

    • Eugenia says:

      That’s wonderful, Anneke! Which ones did you choose? By the way, did I ever mention that I’m Tristam’s ‘God-Kitten’-mummy?! It’s true! He’s my little love!

      • Anneke says:

        Oh that’s so sweet! He has the most perfect Classical Tabby markings. How could you not love him. I finally ordered Order of the Garter plus Avalon and Perceval. I have nearly got them all now :)

      • Eugenia says:

        Wonderful! To me, these are not just polishes, but tiny bottles of art that I have come to enjoy so much! Enjoy your new beauties when they arrive and let me know when you post about them – look forward to seeing your swatches!

What are your thoughts, beautiful?
