A-England Gothic Beauties swatches

I did not buy Dorian Gray, but here are the other A-England Gothic Beauties...
 
 
 
From left to right A-England Lady of Shalott, Jane Eyre, Tess D'Ubervilles, Ophelia.
The colors are almost black when they are out of the bottle, but the small glitters give a nice life in them, but still I'm surprised that they are THIS dark IRL...

  1. Ok I'm just going to put it out there that I love everyone of these. But I DO wish they were not so similar, and thats the reason I haven't gotten any... Just a whole collection of such dark shades has kept me away, even if normally I would buy one as part of a different collection... does that make sense?

    I can't wait to see what you do with these :)

    1. I agree, they are too similar and dark IRL, but 3 of them found good new homes, I only kept Tess D'Ubervilles...

  2. In the bottles all four polishes look very different, but on artificial nails they don't look so different anymore...
    I ordered only Jane Eyre, I got it few days ago and I have to tell you that neither I expected it to be so dark... but I love it anyway! :-)

    1. To have one of them is OK for me too LOL - but as much as I love A-England, this collection was not really me after all!

      Slet
  3. I'm with everybody else on these - they do look too dark and too similar. Is there any significant difference when top coat is applied? I like dark polishes, especially dark shimmery ones, but I haven't ordered any of these.

    1. I just tried, but no not any significant difference....

  4. Hvor ser de fede ud i flaskerne!!
    Jeg synes desværre det er lidt synd, at de bliver så mørke på neglene. Men hey så behøves vi ikke alle kæmpe om de samme lakker ;-)

    1. As a rule, so do I, but these were not really me...

  6. I love A England polishes but I was a bit underwhelmed with this collection. It was practically black :/ Hardly saw the shimmer unless I'm standing in direct sunlight which I never am...I'm upset that I bought 3 of these....oh well.

    1. I couldn't agree more, it's never nice when the beautiful stuff stays behind in the bottle....

  7. I wish I had Jane Eyre. It's so beautiful and the novel is the one of my favorite books :)

    1. Det var så den, der skuffede mig mindst/jeg havde mest brug for i den mørke, men de ER meget mørke...

    Svar
    1. Yes, it would be nice with a more visible shimmer and more difference...

  10. I didnt expect them to be so dark. But i still like them!

    1. That's the great thing about the wide variety of polishes - there is something for all of us :)

      Slet
  11. When I saw the bottles at first, I wanted all of them. But as the swatches began to show up, I decided that I didn't want any of them.
    They're pretty, but they're way too black-looking for me :)

    SvarSlet
  12. They are pretty but I wish the colours stood out more and they didn't look so similar in the end.

    SvarSlet
  13. to tell the truth, i love all of these :D

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. Aww, you are a goth girl Zana, go for them :)

      Slet
  14. i see I'm not alone being disappointed with this collection.. its not only because the polishes are really dark, but mostly because the textures are so similar.. but there's a good side - i don't have to spend money on them ^^
    and still I'll be looking forward for your nail designs with the colors :) i'm curious of how you'll put them together or what you will pair them with.

    1. LOL, it's terrible, but sometimes it feels good to be able to say no hahaha
      You'll only meet Tess D'Ubervilles, the others aer in a new good home...

  15. I received Ophelia in a Llarowe mystery grab bag-I love it but yes it is very dark! I used it almost like a one-coat black, and it adds WOW that way. Nice haul!

    1. It sounds like a good plan to use it as a black, great idea!

      Slet
  16. they are so beautiful! i had been eyeing these....your swatches are very convincing LOL :D Oh Ophelia....sooo beautiful!

    1. Aww, I should have kept her for you in stead of selling it then - I'm sorry...

      Slet
  17. Wow I love these deep shades...

    SvarSlet
  18. That's crazy that they look so different in the bottle and then look totally similar on the nail. Although, subtle color is so pretty!!

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. It kind of is, and a little too bad too - the colors in the bottles looks so tempting...

      Slet
  19. En tand for mørk for mig, men tror sagtens du kan trylle og lave noget magisk nail art på dem, så de kommer til at se fantastiske ud :)

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. Ja, men farven skal inspirere mig, og derfor beholdt jeg kun den grønne....

      Slet
  20. I also think they're too dark, but I wonder if they'd be good for stamping?

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. My guess would be probably, but I don't have much stamping experience :)

      Slet
  21. They are all beautiful, but probably a little too dark for my taste. The shimmers are so pretty though. :-)

    1. Yes, the shimmers are pretty, I wish they were more evident on the nails tho...

  22. Mmmmmm gotta love A-England I actually don't own any but I've been drooling over them all since I found my first swatches of them LOL I almost bought some when she had a special going... not sure if it's still going... hmmm maybe I'll go look ;) LOL

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. LOL, that's where I was then too - except that I bought LOL

  23. They almost look all the same :-) but I love dark colors for the winter.
