Review and swatches: a-england - "Lady of the Lake"

Hi all, its the weekend, yay! I have another absolute beauty for you today, it is another creation by the wonderful Adina, a-england's "Lady of the Lake".  
Lady is part of The Mythicals Collection. I believe that the "Lady of the Lake" was the one who passed Excalibur (the sword and yes, there is also a shade Adina has made called Excalibur) to King Arthur. Please correct me if I'm wrong :P She is a gorgeous purple holo with what I would describe as rainbow, yes rainbow! shimmer throughout. I have 6 a-england polishes so far and they are all as good as one another. Application is flawless, I feel like my nails are so neat when I wear any of these polishes! Lady of the Lake was opaque in one coat. Another excellent advantage to these polishes. I did all swatches with 2 coats, just a habit and I like to even my nails out. 
I really want to try more of a-england, they are such an amazing brand and I am so grateful I own a range of them! Now, onto the swatches!

I have quite a few photos of Lady of the Lake, it is so hard to capture the beautiful holographic effect! You can see some here but it a lot more obvious in real life. 

All photos are in artificial light and I haven't used a top coat yet! Fantastic shine!

Slightly blurred and you can see the holo! Red, orange, blue, green, the list goes on!

Just beautiful, I always get complements on Lady!

Lots of pictures but I just cant get enough of this!

Final photo, I promise! The last few were taken with a flash, such an amazing purple.

Lady of the Lake is available from the a-england website and they retail at 9 pounds I believe. Due to shipping arrangements, they are unable to be shipped to Australia at the moment but Llarowe have a selection on their website!

You must have a look at a-england. Adina has done/is doing a fantastic job with ALL her polishes and I hope I have the opportunity to review more in the near future! 
Have a good weekend! :)
