A-England Mustardseed A Fairy

I have another polish from A-England's new Shakespeare's Fairies collection for you today: Mustardseed A Fairy, which Creator Adina describes as a light coral pink hologram with additional iridescent glimmer. This one surprised me, because I'd had it and the other Shakespeare's Fairies lined up on a table in my office under an incandescent lamp, where it looked like a bricky orange/ terracotta. 

In bright natural light, however, the color adjusts to a rosy medium pink along the lines of rose pompadour. It's filled with countless, light-catching holographic particles that glow in rich sunset shades of orange, amber, pink and light red, adding a warm, salmony aspect the color and giving the polish a dimensional, Pointillist appearance on the nail. There are hints of raspberry and violet edging the prismatic flush in ambient light that increase in intensity in the sun, where the scattered holographic flare features bright sparks in all of the sunset hues above plus lavender and violet.

Application was wonderful. The consistency of Mustardseed A Fairy is fluid and creamy with a medium viscosity and a fluent, even, self-leveling glide over the nail. Pigmentation is very good, close to a one-coater using thicker coats but use two thin-to-medium for fullest expression of color and holographic effects. Cleanup is easy. Mustardseed A Fairy dries naturally in very good time to a glossy finish. Topcoat seems to accentuate the warmth of the holographically-generated sparkle.

This color is beautiful, a rich, warm, grownup pink with a touch of that sunburned, organic quality that makes it feel quite natural on the nail. Love, love, love the prismatic effects! It's one of those polishes where the closer you get to it, the lusher, more fascinating and more incredibly gorgeous it becomes.
